Your Thoughts on this Reg. Simmental Heifer
« on: August 27, 2011, 09:56:10 AM »
She is Sired out of my Herd Bull WWCR MR DREAM S23 a son of CNS DREAM ON L186 and GW MISS MATERNAL 139L. Dam is one I raised and kept FLS MERRY who is Sired out of a TN State Fair Grand Champion WLE Power Stroke x Clearwater Ms JordanJ66D Son DOUBLE J WES. Merry's Dam is SS MS Sidney P64 a MR MT daughter. Anyway I've been thinking of what to do with her. Have had her listed for sale but now kind of thinking about keeping her. It's just that one with her disposition doesn't come around often. She's never been handled before or halterbroke but she now just loves the hair comb and brush no matter where she's being brushed or touched. I've talked to Larry Martin about the TN Fall Showcase Simmental Sale, might go there. She'll be a year old 10-28-11. Anyway what's your thoughts on her.

I really like her! She has a lot of middle and should make a really good mama cow down the road!

Thanks for the comments! If she is still here at breeding age, what's everyone's suggestion on what to breed her too. I'll like to stay Simmental or at least with a high percentage SimAngus. I really like the looks of Dikeman's Double Down and his EPD's. Like to stay with a calving ease bull with her being a heifer. I know Grandmaster is hot and proven so I may go there but I always tend to try something different than what's going around when I do get time to AI some. May end up letting my newest herdsire breed her. He's a Triple C Invasion son out of the Miss Wisconsin Donor at Indian Creek Simmentals in Ohio. Anyway I'm still weighing my options, would keep her without a doubt if my herd wasn't at it's peak. May sell a Commercial dam and let her take its spot. I just have a hard time culling my cows when they haven't broke their contract. Again thanks for your thoughts.
