Advantages for members

The advantages of membership of the Holsteiner Verband

As a member you will enjoy unique advantages for breeders.

Large selection of breeding stallions

We offer you a large selection of high quality stallions (approx. 45).

The Holstein breeding program is the basis for the breeding success of our breeders. The targeted use of foreign blood by refiner breeds (English and Anglo-Arabian thoroughbreds as well as French warmbloods of the Selle Francais breed) and breeding test stallions enables the breeder to optimally mate with his mare in order to ensure breeding progress.


Europe-wide semen dispatch

Through our offer of nationwide and Europe-wide semen shipping, we enable our breeders to obtain the semen also outside of Schleswig-Holstein or Germany. Please contact our manager of the stallion stable, Gérard Muffels (+49 4121 924 14 or hengststall@holsteiner-verband.de).


Discounted semen order

Members receive the semen at a reduced rate over the stud fee I. The discount on the stud fee is at least 200,- € compared to the stud fee II.

We grant a generous term of payment: The invoice will be issued 4-6 weeks after the first insemination at the earliest.

For mares that have not been taken in by Verband stallions in fresh semen, the stud fee for the next year is reduced by 250,- € + VAT. (for further details see conditions).


Annual raffle of one free jump per basket district

As a special highlight, one free jump of a young stallion is awarded to a Holstein breeder per breeding district every year. Depending on the basket district, the award is made by a raffle or for special breeding achievements, for example "Best Filly"/"Best Colt".


Individual promotion of mares at the station tests

The association offers an individual promotion of the mares at the station tests.

At the station test all 3-year-old mares, which are descended from young stallions or thoroughbreds, which are in their first or second year of covering, are eligible for promotion by the Verband. Depending on the number of mares, this amounts to 450,-€ to 500,-€.

Status Jan. 2016, subject to change

Please contact Mr. Götz Hartmann (+49 431 305996 1 or hartmann@holsteiner-verband.de).

 

Elite mare show and licensing

With the Elite Broodmare Show and the Landschampionat for show jumpers in June in Elmshorn and the licensing and Elite Riding Horse Auction in October/November in Neumünster, the Verband organizes two major events that provide the best possible information about breeding activities and are also a great advertisement and image boost for Holstein breeding both nationally and internationally.

 

Breeding advice & service

If you have any questions about Holstein breeding, our breeding director Dr. Thomas Nissen, managing director of the Holsteiner Verband Hengsthaltung GmbH Norbert Boley and the head of the stallion stable Gérard Muffels will be happy to advise you at any time. Also at events such as licensing and mare registrations, the commission will be happy to provide you personally with information on the results, please do not hesitate to ask!

At the 17 insemination stations of the Holstein Verband throughout Holstein you will find advice and information on the Verband stallions and possible matings with your broodmare.

Furthermore, several times a year, the association offers further training courses, for example on heredity, health or training of horses.


Extended service for foreign members

For foreign members, we offer registration dates for mares and foals in the Holstein Stud Book throughout Germany and Europe.

At some foal licensing dates in the extended breeding area Holstein Foal Championships with attractive prizes are held.
