Meyer Daughter , What to flush too ?
« on: January 08, 2012, 07:00:34 PM »
I ended up with this Meyer 734 x Ambush halfblood cow and im thinking of flushing her. Definitely want to use either a purbred simmy or a halblood simmy bull. Im looking for maternal daughters out of the deal mainly for myself. Cows mother is Thomas Lucy 6018 which im not real familiar with. Any suggestions would be great ???

usually potential cows to flush are a good/ happy thing.. in this case, you sound disappointed to have her..

If you're interested in a good baldy purebred, check out PRS Blazin' Hot with Cattle Visions. He's a Welshs Dew It Right son and his first calves are on the ground now. He's a high API bull and the calves are good doing and growthy with plenty of style. He's not a clubby bull...he'll make good, sound production type cattle. Homozygous black and homozygous polled. The Upgrades are thick if you can stand the milk EPD...if you're wanting to make females, that wouldn't make a lot of sense to me. His sire, though, "Olie" makes nice daughters, and he works really well on Angus and Angus x Simmie cross cows.

Pays to Dream would work, or maybe Amigo. If I were you, I'd watch out breeding her to a baldie because you may get more white than you want with her being a Meyer.

The too much white deal is also a concern but with her being a halfblood angus with just that little white star on her head I think ill be okay , I hope ! Would it be a bad idea to go Built Right or Steel Force or am I crazy ???

Hate to burst your bubble but if her sire is Meyer 734 then she does have a copy of the spotting gene.

Id go built right i think that maiting is very interesting.   A maiting we have really really good success with is maiting our h1/2 blood meyer or meyer influnced cows to SOS for double 1/2s.  Give that a thought.

For a pretty nice baldy I'll 2nd the vote for PRS Blazin' Hot. For a solid I'll go with SS Ebonys Premium Blend.
