Milestone dispersion
« on: August 07, 2007, 09:09:02 PM »
Got my new SC yesterday and was wondering what everyone else thought of Milestone selling out. I think the breed owes him a bit of gratitude as I feel he made selling flushes, embryos and pregnancies at a high level more acceptable. It will also be interesting to see what the sale grosses. He bought a Roan Sue x Charmer from us maybe I can get her bought back for pennies on the dollar. ;)

The back cover says total dispersal of donor females, pregnancies and embryos. My guess is he is done. I could be wrong but with the top end females selling the way they do now it would be really tough for him to get back to the same level starting completely over again. I'm interested to see what they are doing with the bulls. I talk to Wayne quite a bit and he has never mentioned the sale to me so the whole thing is a bit intriguing. If he is done the breed is losing one heck of a promoter and a great guy.

I guess we will know the details in about 6 weeks.  the catalog will probably be out about then.  wouln't it be nice to pick up his share of Pure Solution now that we know what he can produce!

I am sure there are a number of reasons for this dispersal and I have no doubt that it is a real dispersal. There will be some real good buys and there will be some breed leading females offered that are flushed out and hard breeders. That goes with almost any outfit that has based their entire program around ET. I am sure there will be some incredible prices on a few of the top end. It will be interesting to see how some of the THC donors sell. I am sure there will be more than a few of them. With the recent Milestone sales showing reduced sale averages combined with Verl's age, he probably feels it is time to slow down.

Has any of these high profile cows been transplanted to a red angus bull like cherokee canyon or gravity yet and are such pregnancies available.

I don't get the Shorthorn magazine, is there a website for Milestone?  Or place to request a catalog?  Thanks.

Not so sure he's done. Took Merle Welch 5 dispersals, and he still ain't 100% out of the biz.
