I have been working quietly on resurrecting some of the old fullblood genetics however my focus is very limited to only the very best, proven cow families and matings.

This is a one month old ET bull calf born in early September.....his dam and sire are from the 70's....almost entirely French with a touch of Swiss. His sire....Bar 5 Exodus was a moderate framed bull for the times and wasn't embraced by the show ring crowd of the day. His maternal pedigree goes back to the great RFG Tosca 1B. A beautiful pedigree for those who have knowledge of the foundation genetics.
He could be available if interest is sufficient. I might bring him to Louisville a year from now.

Thanks, and it's great to hear nothing but good reviews on Alpine Polled Proto.
Already took my first 3 heifers last week to be A.I. bred to Alpine Polled Proto -  hoping to build a nice herd of Proto females in the next few years, and then I can starting thinking about who I'll breed them to.

Can't wait.!

Lets see if we can activate this conversation again.
How did the Proto matings turn out?

Never heard how the Proto mating turned out.  Here is a Parisien on Herr Otto that was born last year to celebrate ASA's 50th anniversary.  We also had calves out of Firn #8, Extra, Signal and Abricot.
