Re: …


  How far are you from Sussex NB? I attended Bethany Bible College in '81. Plenty of fond memories from down east.
  Speaking of genomics, our Electricity bull was genomic tested. Genomically he was to have roughly +400 or so for milk, and his proof came out to be -600, so that is 1,000 difference, for a trait that is supposed to be the most accurate. I may have given out 10 proof sheets in 10 years. The numbers on the sheets won't sell the bulls, but the fertility, then the calf pen stand-outs, then eventually getting VG cows that give the same amount of milk as their neighbour that uses nothing but milk bulls, makes a believer out of them.
  I can't read the proof in the new catalog anyway, it's about two inches square, and my eyes aren't what they used to be.
 I think there is a Long -haven fella on here from time to time. Brian was going there the other day to check out a young bull out of Randi. I'm not sure what it was, maybe Sanchez or something like that.

Re: …


  Scotty, are you an illegitimat son of a preacher man? How old are you and what was your mothers maiden name? Just kidding, because I saved it for marriage. I think I need a do-over. Sussex view is on the doorstep there. Do you remember Counselor Erica?
  PAD, my man, read the bottom of my Jan 28th post. For the next two months, if you purchase 10 doses of a YS at 10 dollars, you can purchase as much Carisma, Sovereign and Atlantic as you like for 10 bucks. With Scotty being a salesman, and getting his thirty percent commision taken out of the price, that would be 7 smackers a dose. Foundation salesmen get a staight 30% commision, but that is all we get. No vehicle, no mileage paid, no health benefits, no nothing, just commision on already dirt cheap bulls. Salesmen turnover is pretty high, to most, like myself it is just an interesting hobby. I plan on sticking around until the day comes that the phone starts ringing off the hook.

I think you misunderstood me... I just meant I wish I could buy Soveriegn/Carisma for $7, but $10 is really cheap too! I'll have to contact my rep.

I wasn't talking about the commission the salesman gets. Our rep comes all the way out from the border between PA and NY, its probably a 2-3 hour drive. Not sure why, when there's another affiliated sires rep about 40 minutes from my house.

Re: …


 PAD, it all depends on how hungry he is or how busy he is. The fella from further away might just be more motivated. I struggle with the motivational aspect after a bad day. To come home after spending forty dollars on gas and making fifteen on semen, makes it difficult to go out the next day. I would rather stay at home and play with the kids as drive around and lose money. I try and get some sold over the phone first, then I know my gas is covered at least.
 Juju, some people have had great success with Primetime and some others haven't. It's just the nature of the beast. Goldwyn makes the best looking cows but he also makes the worst looking cows too. I admit that I don't sell a whole lot of him but the guys that are able to get the milk out of them appreciate the cowmaker, broodcow type of cow that he will make. Like I said before, to just look at his proof doesn't do the bull justice. You have to talk to guys that have milked them, or go see some yourself. Personally, I try and have a couple of calves a year from him, the dairy strength and feet and legs are worth it. I'm lucky enough that mine are at or above herd average for production. I would have to go back and look , but I think the Canadian champion for milk in the yearling class last year was a VG Primetime from Holzer. Yes, she is from a wet herd but she is also well over herdmate production.
