AR Sinai Thunder Bella Riscatta 2*M 2*DAR
DOB: 11/21/15 (Quad) Height: 21 1/2"
Sire: Little Tots Estate Bellissimo *B +S VEE89, 1xGCH
Dam: SG Kaapio Acres HH Redemption *M *DAR VEEE90, ADGA Elite Doe, 2x
We were stunned and blessed beyond description when we were notified that Bella was awarded the ADGA ELITE Doe, with the highest percentile: 99%
Bella is another of our lovely Red daughters whose dairy genetics are following in her mother's footsteps. In her most recent Test, Bella surpassed the 1000# mark, with still 70 days to go on her 305 Day test----an amazing feat for a FF.
Bella's dam, Red has been in ADGA/AGS Top 10 multiple times, Breed Leader 3 different years, and holds the record for 1Day high of 8.1#. Red's current lactation (her 5th freshening) has resulted in 6000# for lifetime. Pretty impressive genetics to pass on, and it looks like Bella's the daughter who will carry it on.
Bella's sire, Bellissimo has a pedigree that is the Whose Who of Little Tots Estate. There are Finished Champion or LA scores of 90+ (or both) in almost the entire pedigree. She is actually line-bred CH Hot Habanero, whose litter sister (CH/MCH Cholula) is EEEE91 and the dam of CH/VEVE89 daughter. Habanero is the sire of MANY Finished CH's, LA's of 90+, SG/Elite, and producers of Finished CHs.
Milk & LA Notes:
Bella finished her DHI (305 Day Test) as a FF. Her Milk Test high is 5.6#, with her production 1295#. Her final lactation numbers were 1641#-113# BF & 73# Protein. Bella's Production Earnings Index of PE ranking is 99%---the highest PE for an Elite Doe, an amazing accomplishment for a First Fresherner.
Due to a computer glitch in ADGA processing of our LA permit, we were skipped over for 2017. To earn the award of Superior Genetics, a doe has to be appraised (LA) and have a PE of 85% or higher. Hopefully, that doesn't happen next year, and we can get our herd appraised---which will allow Bella and our other FF's to be eligible for the Superior Genetics program The Elite Program has a minimum of 95% PE, however LA isn't one of the requirements.
We're excited to welcome the babies from Oliver & Bella due this fall.
