Re: Foundation Sires


Everyone from PA is a jerk, just admit it! LOL. :devil

Will say that I am not sure that USDA is the most 'trusted' source I'd use.

I live 2 hours from Jersey and NYC and can say that anybody from PA is an angel compared to them!

The USDA may not be the most trusted source but I've seen comparable results for high SCR and low SCR sires. I feel that it is really tough to get conception rates for bulls from so many different farms. However, it's a step in the right direction IMO.

Re: Foundation Sires


Wow, he's only +1 for conformation in Canada. I have an Absolute Lee - and she is pretty, and also pretty hard to get pregnant. So buyer beware, lol. She took like 6 services as a heifer, and then a lot of services until she was finally bull bred as a 1st lactation cow. She did score 87 1st lactation though. But yea, there are better bulls to use out there that have just as much type as he does that have better health and production traits.
