The Crown Jewel Collection™.....from Flatness International Inc.

100%...Plus Proven for High Component Prod.& Type....Holsteins & Brown Swiss!!   THANK YOU... Dairymen & Distributors!!


This program that combines the breed's highest production, highest components for both pounds and percentages, the best overall type, and deepest  pedigrees...but most importantly..yielded 100% results. No breeder proven bulls, No syndicates! 

There are approximately 9 million dairy cows in the U.S.  Over 90% of these are Holstein.  Let's look at the very elite Holstein cows...

+100 lbs. protein and +100 lbs. fat index
Over 30,000 lbs. milk as a 2-year-old
*  Very Good or Excellent, Very Good or Excellent Mammary
*    Deep, Most Outstanding Cow Families, Including current" Queen of the Breed "
       nominees such as Zita ,Dellia and Laurie Shiek
*    +1800 CTP Index (150 Cows in the U.S.)

There are very few Holstein cows in the world that meet these requirements.   When you add  5.0% fat test and 4.0% protein test  (remember: cheese and ice cream are the most profitable products in the dairy industry), there are only a handful of cows (click here).  Flatness International, Inc. has  sons from one of them, "Frisco" (exported to Japan for $50,000), BEETHOVEN, and PYRAMID.   Another cow, the EX(94) "Zita",a "Queen of the Breed" Nominee is the granddam of ZADE.   "Zanadu", ZADE's dam became a third cow in this elite group.   All of these bulls are now plus proven.  The dam of our current young sires, BRILLIANCE and KING, is Bethany, the No. 1 Fat Index cow of the breed.  

 Also, Dellia, another "Queen of the Breed" Nominee is one of the most outstanding brood cows in the breed, with several high plus proven bulls including, DELLSTAR, and MAGNIFICENT and Gr. son  DIAMOND.

In an article entitled, "Where Will Young Sires Fit in Tomorrow's Herds?" by Dr. Bennett Cassell, published in the July 1998 issue of Hoard's Dairyman, the author reports:  "Our study showed that the bottom 30 percent of bulls for parent average MFP$ graduated only about one young sire in every 15 sampled.   Less than two out of 100 of that bottom 30 percent ever wound up among the top 5 percent of proven bulls.  At the other end of the scale, one in every four or five young sires among the top 30 percent for parent average MFP$ graduated.  The very best proven bulls were far more likely to come from this pedigree group.   Studs could cut sampling costs by being more selective of the pedigrees they choose to sample."  (Reprinted with permission.)

The young sires at Flatness International, Inc. have higher pedigree indexes than any other AI organization in the world!  We have been honored by the elite readership of Holstein International magazine, the most progressive dairymen in 65 countries, to be the only bull stud in the world to have three bulls in the top 5 in their "World's Most Promising Young Sire" contest in the last three years. 

There are no syndicates or no breeder proven bulls at Flatness International, Inc. Our young sires are all listed as stud-sampled, "S" code, through the official NAAB cross-reference program.  

We are proud to be the only bull stud in the world to have every one (100 percent) of our progeny tested bulls graduate as plus proven sires for production and type, in both the Holstein and Brown Swiss breeds.  

These are the kind of bulls we have now, and the kind we will have more of in the future.  If you are on official DHIA test, and have, preferably, at least 20,000 lbs. rolling herd average (Pennsylvania AVERAGE production), you can use them now.  The main benefit to this program is to use the world's most elite young sires at a substantial discount.  The Crown Jewel Collection™, the  young sire program from Flatness International, Inc., is available to you now!

Write, phone, fax, or e-mail us to join.  If you live in Pennsylvania or surrounding states, Ron Flatness or one of our authorized distributors will personally get you started and deliver your semen to you.   (Semen will be delivered by UPS outside of this delivery area.)

We look forward to helping you with your complete herd improvement goals.

Note: Every sire in our program is a graduate of the "Crown Jewel Collection" except Lightning, who was purchased as a proven sire..our first bull purchase.
