Re: Monument Impression


Some of the daughter pictures look a little thick, but at this point, I'll take that over too frail. His positives outweigh the negatives.

drdiederich...you definitely use some bulls that would be outside of my box. I find the biggest problem breeding for "robot" cows is the huge influx of bulls with short rear teats (and reverse tilt). Almost anything related to Planet is automatically eliminated because of that. My breeding strategy has remained pretty much the same otherwise.

Re: Monument Impression


I like him for what he can offer a balanced proof with an AAA of #153264 with some strength.

The Cherry-Crest Impression Vicky daughter looks a great animal she looks better than a GP83 animal maybe she needs a fuller rear udder from looking at the picture she has 2x Lee and Juror with more Blackstar in her line.I also noticed that in her line u used Bova Cubby on a Bova Cubby was that a mistake or did u plan that cross.

Yeah, as I stated, I'm more of a health breeding kind of guy. Those short teats are a problem. What I wish I could get was two new ratings... one something along the lines of the Delaval Performance Index average and one for average passes through a sort gate, or rotations in a pen or higher activity... something along those lines.

Re: Monument Impression


kingmambo, I also thought she would be higher than 83, I had her at 85. The cubby on cubby was a mistake. I was at college at the time and my dad was breeding everything to cubby and she was a virgin heifer that came in heat so that was what she was bred to. The rear udder wasn't as full as we wanted it she had about 10 hours of milk and the picture had to be done then.

Re: Monument Impression


The interesting thing about Impression's short teat length is that Potter and Socrates both tend to sire a longer teats. We have milked close to 60 Potters and 25 Socrates and I can't remember a single one having short teats. A couple of my Potters actually had long goat type teats that were a pain to milk out.

Re: Monument Impression


She is a great animal with lots of power that is very well balanced the only thing I would want to improve on is the rear udder based on the pedigree.

Using Cubby on Cubby looks to have been a great mistake to produce this animal.

U should have lots of breeding options with this cow in the future and I don't think she will be a GP83 animal for much longer with her great balance of frame and dairyness there is some great combinations in this cow.

Re: Monument Impression


I have just had a real nice VG86 Shottle Elegance confirmed in-calf to him. Trying to find a great Type Sire that is a bit of an outcross is not easy

Re: Monument Impression


If u get a heifer from your Shottle u could use Blue-Horizon(Alta)Suplex in the future he is from the same family with great health traits a great linebreeding possibility.

Re: Monument Impression


The stand out calves in my pens are Impressions. Consistently long necked, long bodied, hard topped, wide chest and rump. I really like them.

Re: Monument Impression


I really like the first couple of calves we have. Really long and dairy. With his outcross pedigree, decent health traits, milk and no holes linear it is such a shame that he has low fat and protein deviations (on UK base) which somewhat limit his use.
