breeding choices help me out
« on: February 28, 2007, 10:14:11 PM »
We have a big cow PB Maine out of EBES Lithium (who goes back to DJ Zeke)x DJ Deuce Dam  love her she is a tank.  She just had a nice little Hard Core bull calf.  Spit it out llike it was nothing to it.  We want to breed her Maine again...but a little clubbier.  Anyone have any suggestions?

\Yes I know Red its my 3rd Hard Core calf in a week....I really did breed to other bulls too!

I am not sure how you feel about Kadabara. But, he does make them pretty. I do like his females. They are great. I have a Troy Boy x Kadabara heifer absolutely love. Paddy O'Mally, will not additional frame from what i have seen. usually sires moderate framed and thick. Just a thought.
Life is too short....don't sweat the small stuff.

Hey "justme" you & your Hard Core calves! Do they come early? I still want pictures, I sent you back your camera so you should be getting it in about a month or two. (clapping)

I like OH B's idea of Kadabra. Also maybe Dr Who or Jazz? I'd suggest Cowboy Cut, but he is PHAC so hesitate on him. I'll let you know more after next week on him.

good luck, glad your having a good year so far!

Cathy, Dr. Who is a real good idea.  If you use him on a PB, You will still get the High % maine but add that clubby look.

We flushed the heifer I have in the picture to Dr. Who, Last year and have 4 on the ground already.  WOW!

We are pretty excited.  I will share pictures at a later date. (pop)

Good Luck!

Yes, Tony pictures! How does Dr Who work on legs & structure? I heard he was much better than his sire. I've always been concerned about WMW's structural problems.

From what I've seen, if you use Dr. Who on Power Plant genetics you can be breeding too close. I've seen some structure issues with Dr. Who x Power Plant genetics. Just a word of warning.

Good point Telos. That is why you are a pedigree guru!
