Hello from the semi-frozen north!


 emoticon
Best wishes to all from Montana! We found this forum thanks to the Dairy Crossbred Blog, and are interested in really learning what benefits commercial and family dairy operations with regard to crossbreeding. We are trying to put together a breeding program featuring high producing, high fertility Normandes. We have started with a bull out of New Hope Fukrain Suzette, from the wonderful program of New Hope Normandes in Wisconsin. Love to hear advice or input, and thanks so much for letting us join!

Re:


Do you milk an entirely crossbred herd or pure normandes?

Re:


At the moment our bull's first daughters (he's thrown 100 percent heifers so far) are just coming up to breeding age. However, we have high hopes, as his mother produced over 30,000 pounds more than once on test. Our own needs are just for a small herd, and we'll continue to add the best French Genetics we can find to lean heavily towards the Normande. That being said, we think our bull will have alot to contribute to commercial crossbreeding, because of his fertility, soundness and the high production of his maternal side. Absolutely can't wait to start milking these girls--they are correct and super sweet tempered.
