Sorry to hear you lost a good one!!   Glad to hear you've got some embryos to carry on with, though.    I think we all have that favorite cow or two that we would hate to lose so we can all understand what a deflating feeling that can give you.  Good luck with the embryos!!

Whats the best son you ever had out of 55G? Does he make females like his momma? Just curious. Seems you could really get her in stacked up in your herd with a son. I loved the pic of her with the view in the backround. Thats a pic for the cover of Shorthorn Country if I ever saw one. Sorry to hear she passed. I tell myself they are grazing in that big sweet pasture in the sky after a life of serving our needs.

We never kept a son although the best two were by Circle M Ghost Rider 10G a white horned bull and both of these were were really thick with style roan and had horns! It was during BSE and there was no market for bulls anyway. She had another good red bull by a Byland Gold Spear son we raised but I didn't really want the Gold Spear at that time. In retrospect I wish I had used him. I kind of hope to get a red son from the embryos, either by Saskvalley Ultra 12J or The Grove Kookaburra W735.
Below is another bit of info I posted in another thread
Diamond Dottie 55G is 13 years old. 55Gs first calf Diamond Dottie 52J sold to Moores in Illinois and was still producing last year. Her 2nd heifer,Diamond Kara Dottie  sold to Ron and Annette Vanek, Montana and both Vaneks and Koulee Shorthorns in Washington have descendants in production.Of course after selling her first two heifers she produced some bull calves,most of these during the BSE years. One of those calves was the highest indexing calf in his year. She also produced the dam of Sunset,57N, but we lost 57N to lump jaw the fall Sunset was weaned. We have a son of Alta Cedar Sherman 7S out of another daughter of 55G that we are using. This year 55G had a Diamond Prophecy 21P heifer and we decided to put her into a flush program before its too late! First flush we got 11 embryos by Saskvalley Ultra 12J.
The second flush was to Glenford Gus 4H and she produced 13 embryos. 10 of these are going to Scotland. (4H is the sire of Star P Matrix)
The last flush was by The Grove Kookaburra W735.

Sorry to hear it. It stinks when you loose one especially when they are your best one's.

Good luck with your Eggs! Its a good thing you have them in the tank.
