Re: Local daughter pictures


Great cow, production and getting back pregnant and people try and say Holsteins can't graze.

Had our first cow pass 14000lt in 305 day. 8kg grain max and no maize, not quite as good at getting pregnant as the above cow but is pregnant.

Reposting for AHVP, the exception that proves the rule, 12 Morningview Durham Jinx daughters, all in second or third lactation that won the progeny group class in our local On Farm Challenge last year. As of June this year the same farm is milking 82 Jinx daughters, slow maturing magnificent cows. We will probably pick the Jinx daughters again for this years OFC. Jinx, the unsung Durham son.

Re: Local daughter pictures


Great daughter group indeed, thank you for taking time to repost it. Udders seem really solid from what I can see. I often think Jinx is to Durham what was Cooper to Emory, the one that remained in the shadows of his brothers for too long and proved to be the best.

Have you heard of any sons of him or younger relatives maybe?

Re: Local daughter pictures


I looked Jinx up on [sign in to see URL] and it lists 12 sons, none of any consequence, mostly with Pine-Tree and Co-Op prefixes. Ashlar is from the Formation out of the Converse Judy cow, he was about as pure an udder bull I have ever seen, they do well in our system.

We were once offered Cooper at a bargain price and turned him down! emoticon emoticon

The 'white' cow in front is one of my favourite Jinx daughters on another farm, she has done really well. This photo was taken a few years ago in extreme heat, you can see some of the cows have their tongues out and many are drooling as they return for afternoon milking.

Re: Local daughter pictures


Neither Cooper nor Jinx were proposed here and it's quite a pity no sons or grandsons seem to make their own way now. Another branch of the Judys I like is the one developed from Manfred Jabbers at Kleverland. I've rarely seen a bunch of maternal brothers that high for health traits with sires like Saturn, Machoman or Juror Capri...

It seems this kind of bulls were a part of the 'lost generation', when higher genomic sires popped up. And that's right, Pine Tree among others had a pretty nice and large sample of bull calves with such names in their sire stack back then. As I'm from Europe, I often think they (Cooper, Jinx, Zade, Amateur, Lynch etc.) would have made a sound alternative to our bloodlines, even Duster is quite uncommon in our pedigrees (the only one I've seen personally was at a neighbour's farm, imported as an US embryo from a Benchmark x Enhancer).

This other Jinx looks pretty great too, in what lactation was she when pictured?

Re:


I think the Jinx was in her third lacation in this pic, she is an old cow now.
