I was reading this thinking I would make exactly the same point Onyx had one hell of a sire (Mtoto) and then.... (pity Select never bred another bull as good since)
The other thought that occured if a US AI bull fails to make to England be suspicious, Durhan didn't nor BW Marshal and now Freddie

Just thought I would show off this dry 6th lactation Onxy daughter, client sent me a pic of this week. She is out of a Geno that made 6 lactations all over 8000kgs on pasture. The Onyx averages about 7500kgs (hopefully with better solids)
