You can assume that all polled cows are heterozygous polled. Polled cows are usually the result of mating a horned bull to a polled cow or a polled but to a horned cow, and if the result is polled it is heterozygous.

If you have a Holstein cow which has over 30,000# as a first DHIA record, or any record over 34000 lb, or a classification of EX90 or better, and would be willing to flush her to a polled bull, or have already done so, you should consider registering and posting your offering on this site.  We have provided the classifieds for this purpose.

Breeders of top polled cows include:
