- ZADE's Linear Type Traits are perfect linears for the free stall or tie stall, outstanding udders shine in any environment ! CAUTION...these linear traits are accurate for his 2yr. old dtrs. scored at 60 days ...like most other sires. His mature dtrs (most not included here because not scored in a Classic or Standard Class. program, like most sires, we are only looking at 2yr olds here) have much better body traits and udders continue to improve. ZADE is the best Longevity sire of any breed because of his dtrs. performance... NOT a 2 min. look at 2yr olds!
- The most important linear trait by FAR, for Longevity... is Udder Depth!
The ZADE daughters are very similar to his sire, WADE's, first lactation daughters. They are maturing beautifully, like the WADE's during 2nd lactation. The ZADE dtrs have much higher components than his sire, and similar to the high components of his four direct maternal dams.
The ZADE's are above-average stature... some are over 60 in. tall as 2 yr. olds., with adequate strength as 2 yr. olds and develop strength with age. He works best on tall, deep-bodied cows. ZADE is siring correct slope to the rump.
He straightens legs, side and rear view. The legs are very correct and foot angle is very good.
ZADE is siring very outstanding udders , fancy fore udders , very high and widerear udders , udder cleft is exceptional (, teat placement and length is quite good. Also outstanding rear teat placement (Netherlands data, 107)
Udder Depth is very good! Udder Depth is by far the most important part of the udder composite index - twice as many points as other traits - because it is the most important aspect of longevity. He will greatly improve the deep uddered cow. A perfect mating for dtrs of high Body Comp. bulls. The best mating is the big, thick cow needing a better udder.
However, EVERY cow needs high lifetime component production, with an improved udder that's shallow, shapely, with good health (low somatic cell score). ZADE is the best mating for millions of cows!

- ZADE was a Top 100 TPI , and Wade's highest TPI son in AI. Zade's sire, Parker Aero WADE-ET *TL, was one of the best all-around proven AEROSTAR sons. WADE is still a great Udder Depth bull (No.1 trait for high lifetime production) bull in the breed +3.52 with over 18,500 class. dtrs. 4/08. WADE's dam and granddam are both Excellent with Excellent Mammaries. WADE was an overall type improver, and Udder Depth improver like ZADE. WADE daughters also have very correct feet & legs. ZADE has now surpassed his sires overall breeding values and is Wades very best son and with higher components than his sire.
ZADE dtrs are strong, straight-topped, smoothly blended, dairy, with correct feet & legs. Their overall type scores will increase even more as they mature. ZADE is an outstanding udder improver peaked at +3.10 Udder Composite and +3.39 Udder Depth His dam has a 3rd generation EXCELLENT Mammary. This family includes 7 generations of EX Mammaries! Plus our 2nd highest DPR..+2.80 !! Fertility!
- ZADE was one of the World's Most Promising Young Sires! He was No. 1 in the 2000 Holstein International contest, and now that promise has turned to reality!! He now has the highest TPI of any bull EVER in that contest. ZADE is the only WADE offspring of Zanadu.
