why don't you just breed to cowtown?  he's a double carrier and a clone from  a steer.  he also won some big show.  big deal.  semen sales are through the basement.  no one's even mentioned using him on here.  there must be some calves out of him somewhere.

when we talked to transova ona  field trip they said it would cost 18k for first one and 2k less every one after that so 16k, 14k ,12k and so on
so heatwave is at roughly 15 clones of him self soo... 18k 16k 14k 12k 10k 8k 6k 4k 2k "0" 2k 4k 6k 8k 10k Buy ten get 5 free?  (lol)
If it don't fit, force it.
If it breaks, it needed fixed anyways

I would suggest you call Trans Ova/Bovance to get current prices.  I stopped at their booth in Denver and was asking some questions about their services,I know they told me they have one cloning program that starts at $16,000 per calf and goes down from there with volume.
