I got them.  I'm just trying to figure out what I want to do with all the semen I have.  I'll try to get back to you soon.

It seems as though the breed was going to get the infusion of Maine blood one way or the other. I'd much rather see it on the paper instead of hidden under a "pure" shorthorn's name. I've sent Yukon semen along as the back up bull on a pair of IVF flushes now but haven't had the chance to use him yet. Hope to get him plugged into the right pedigree eventually to see if it works like I think it might.



Oakview, did my emails make it through to you a while back? Would still be interested in getting together on some of that semen one of these days.//// Ive got a good bit of Hardings Capital gains if you know anybody interested O0

As curiosity matter....possible no answer would come.

As ASA opened the herdbook for aliens on 70's....why some breeders used Maine and other breeds on their cattle and not informed the ASA for insert it on pedigrees, making it CLEAR! Enticer is the unique example I know that is Maine infused but with clean pedigree.

The Maines didn't legally come into the ASA herd book until the late 80's.  The duals were accepted legally in the early 70's.  (after they were "excused" in the late 40's).  Prior to their legal acceptance, people used duals and Maines for the same reason they do anything under the table.  To get an edge.  The shortcut to bigger cattle in the late 60's was to use something different, something not available to just everybody.  Let's put a little Milking Shorthorn in there.
 No one will ever know.  The shortcut to putting some muscle and bone back in them later on was to put a little Maine in there.  Capone looks like a good bull.  Who will know?  It was done in every breed, quite often I might add.  Hard to believe what people have done, and still do today, for a trophy.
