By Dr Robert Walton with Jean-Louis Schrago
The history of Hanover Hill Triple Threat- Red is so intertwined with the story of Jean-Louis Schrago of Switzerland that I must first tell part of the Schrago story. I first met Jean-Louis in August 1968 when he appeared at the receptionist desk at American Breeders Service (ABS) in De- Forest, Wisconsin with two of his fellow graduates from the Agriculture University in Switzerland. They had first come to Canada to learn more about Red & White Holsteins. There was some Red &White semen that had already been imported into Switzerland and Schrago was already an avid enthusiast of the R&W breed. The trio had just been at the Roundtree Holstein Farm near Toronto, Ontario. ABS had recently acquired an ABC Reflection Sovereign son from the Roundtrees. The Roundtrees had told Schrago that if he really wanted to find out what was going on in the cattle breeding world they should visit ABS.
