With the combination of these fantastic old fertile cows with milk, in the pedigreeof Lot 12, it bodes well that he should breed exceptional fertile females with longevity and milk. This is the type of paper trail we use, with genetic sustainability, and using the actual measurements of weaner weights to select bulls to use to continue thegenetic importance of functional and economic breeding females. With the fluctuation of EBV’s and inaccuracy on milk EBVs for old well used breeding bulls, we tend not to pose too much importance on these milk figures. JRP11-73, Lot 12’s dam’s sire, hasbred some of the best females in the herd. Their conformation is faultless as well as their offspring. The 3 herd sires from JRP11-73which we used were exceptional, namely LAR17-358 (Andre van der Heyde) a well-known herd sire who has bred exceptional cattlethroughout the breed with 12 sons on sale.
