Totem, Burley, Gladius – The most interesting Outcross Sires at the top level

Really, the problem is impossible to solve. Year after year since 2011, HI has searched for the Outcross Sire of the Year.

It is not about finding something local, but rather international pedigree alternatives at the top genetic level. This requirement does not necessarily make the task any easier.

From our viewpoint, he is a sire that precisely marries all of these requirements.
