Breeding Suggestions
« on: May 12, 2016, 07:55:44 PM »
Need some suggestions on what to breed our heifer to.  She is a Broker x Texas Hold Em(Habegers) x Dream On.  We would like to clean up the front of her a bit and our main goal is to hope if we were to get a heifer calf that it would be a good milker.  We would like to use at least a percentage Simmi bull but really would like a PB.  I know it is hard to breed calving ease as she already has Dream On in her bloodlines.  Any and all suggestions appreciated.

I would take a look at WC Lock Down, 1/2 blood.  One Eyed Jack, PB, is also an option.  I have had a couple of those, but I think he could throw a little more bone on her than you might want for a first calf.  OEJ does seem to put a good up headed front on them, but mine are too young to really say how they will develop.  It can be difficult to find an outcross to Dream On for heifers.

Goldmine is pretty tried and true calving ease Purebred. My A Step Ups have come really small and I would use him on heifers.
