With great sadness, Select Sires shares news that 7JE1088 Chilli Action COLTON-ET passed away at nearly ten years old. A leading Showcase SelectionsTM sire, COLTON combined the success of two influential lines in the Jersey breed. He consistently delivered tremendous mammary systems and extreme style that impressed dairy producers world-wide.
“COLTON’s pedigree included some of the greatest cow families, including ACTION, Duncan Belle and Circus,” says Herby Lutz, Jersey development manager. “COLTON’s grandam was a two-time national grand champion and it is fitting that one of his early daughters, Hirds Colton Dream (E-94%), is the reigning national grand champion at the All American.”
COLTON’s daughters were shining stars on the colored shavings. Daughters like Dream and Bolle Acres Coltons Angel (E-94%) have become household names. His legacy will live on with many high-scoring daughters and a Showcase Selections son, 7JE1605 MR SWAGGER.
Select Sires is very grateful to Kevin Ehrhardt and Michael Heath, the breeders of COLTON. A limited supply of conventional and gender SELECTedTM COLTON semen remains available.
