What would Cunia semen be worth these days? What type of cows would he work on and what are BW's??
Does anyone her have an amp or 2 and want to share a flush? I provide the cow, you provide the semen and we split it down the middle.DL said:Picture of Cunia from the 1977 Maine Sire Directory
His 2008 BW EPD is 2.6 (6 star - 10 would be considered calving ease; 1 might be considered trouble in calving land) - the accuracy is 96 percent which is high for the Maines; most of the Cunias I have dealt with or seen out of fullblood cows were in th 90 pound range, but some were considerably bigger. They usually have a fair amount of bone.
For fullbloods he works well on Star Michael daughters
Angus x Cunia females are usually super cows
He has many sons and grandsons that have done well, including Chill Factor, Taz, Trump (yes same Cunia) and others that don't come to mind right now
Semen generally goes from $200 to $400 - depending on demand, who owns it, the economy etc
It is in amps so there is more than in a straw - they say that it was originally frozen at an angle, so that if the amp is flat it may have been thawed - don't know if that is true - JIT might know
