Sooner son or Ali grandson with proven milk and good udders
« on: March 12, 2013, 10:07:11 AM »
Are there any sooner sons or Ali grandsons with proven milk or a producer to talk with that would have them?

Want to keep % high and no tight pasterns and hopefully  good udder structure.

Knabe ... my response to this was to start a thread about I-80 heifers and breeding choices for them... do you have any idea about I -80 udders or milk production?

Truline Maines has a Sooner son that is a 27.2 in milk epd. his BW is 2.6 with a 94lb bw, not calving ease, but plenty of milk. name of the bull is TLM Milkman. Nagels have a Ali grandson NAGE Bentley that is calving ease. he is also out of a good widetrack daughter so there should be milk. hope this helps.

How would you even go about getting semen on Wide Track?  Are Nagel's still selling some?  I would think the supply would be getting pretty low.

A Mr. Dennis Garwood once told me that if ever given to buy a Wide Track daughter(s), do not hesitate.

Speaking of GVC..........   You might consider Closing Bell.  I purschased some semen from them after visiting the ranch prior to the female sale.  I went ahead and bought some females through the sale, but I didn't get any closing bell's bought.  I bid on several but didn't end up with any of them.  Dennis said they milked and were good mothers.  That was enough for me.  I wouldn't question his word for a second.

The Closing Bell Females are incredible. A friend of mine is now working at Green Valley and says Closing Bell is the most impressive bull he has ever seen.

wide track's sire is one of the few animals with Smithbuilt's full sister in their pedigree.

The Closing Bell Females are incredible.

please elaborate.  udder/teat shape, mature size, mothering, hock flex.  anything with "the man" up close in them i'm a little worried about size, perhaps unfounded.

Dennis said Closing Bell is the trusty stand by. good udders and teat placement, good mothers, Moderate frame, sound (plenty of flex). He works great on angus cows. here is a mature pic of him snapped back in january
