Dutch Belted Breeding Up Program
Revised October 2005
A plan to provide for "breeding up" from other dairy cattle, using purebred Dutch Belted bulls.  Other breed bulls on Dutch Belt females will not be acceptable.  We must protect the few registered females that we have.

Breed up progression:
    1st generation belted calf    50.00% pure
    2nd generation belted calf   75.00% pure
    3rd generation belted calf   87.50% pure
    4th generation belted calf   93.75% pure
    5th generation belted calf   96.88% pure

1) Special mate a registered Dutch Belted bull with a registered or grade dairy cow.  Identify the resulting daughter.  The DBCA office will record and issue a 0.5 Dutch Belted Cattle Certificate.

2) Special mate a registered Dutch Belted bull with a 0.5 Dutch Belted female.  Identify the resulting daughter.  The DBCA office will record and issue a 0.75 Dutch Belted Cattle Certificate.

3)
Special mate a registered Dutch Belted bull with a 0.75 Dutch Belted female.  Identify the resulting daughter.  The DBCA office will record and issue a 0.875 Dutch Belted Cattle Certificate.

4)
Special mate a registered Dutch Belted bull with a 0.875 Dutch Belted female.  Identify the resulting daughter.  The DBCA office will record and issue a 0.9375 Dutch Belted Cattle Certificate.

5)
Special mate a registered Dutch Belted bull with a 0.9375 Dutch Belted female.  The progeny will be eligible for full registration.

6) All 0.5 Dutch Belted females that are born before Jan. 1, 2007 and all their female offspring, every generation through 0.9375 will continue to follow the specifications of the previous breeding up program.*
