aj said:DL, that might have been a shorthorn system number. The thing that kills me is I don't rub shoulders with the movers and shakers out there and I have to scrap and claw and beg for info. Information is so powerfull. If I hadn't of stumbled on to showsteer tha couple years back I would be a really lost soul on defect information. I talked to people that had calves by a pha carrier and don't know he's a confirmed carrier.
Telos said:Finding the "Improver" in the Maines might be difficult or next to impossible, but being in agreement with XXCC, tracing as many carriers as we can IMO has important value. My curiosity also wants to know what's in Paramount's or Stinger's pedigree that contributed to them being carriers...Was it one of those import full blood cows without an extended pedigree, Eclate, Turquino or maybe Univers 15? Was it some of them, one of them or maybe even none of them? With a test now this knowledge is not as important, but it sure would be nice to know.
