seagull bay silver


I thought maybe I could divert your attention from beating dead horses long enough to discuss Silver.

Great Family, great milk, great components, good SCS, good PL, and decent linear. For me, an almost total outcross and looks to be very usable. Any word on pricing?

Re: seagull bay silver


Silver has been surging based on Mogul's proof jumping. He has a nice looking genomic proof, but until Mogul settles out it could be a rocky ride.

Re: seagull bay silver


Name a bull that does not trace to rudi Missy in the top 10 genomic list.... That family is unreal, it all started with our friend shampoo ( who turned out OK after his rocky ride haha) supersire and his sons, powerball, Monterey, josuper... And I can keep going. Use a bit of that family and you'll have a tough time breeding heifers later on ( if you're into genomics anyway) I like the looks of the bull but he's pretty much unusable to anything with numbers that we have. We used Used Skippy, shaw and smoking Joe as youngsires, good luck with breeding them haha

Apparently we have different breeding goals. Lots of white water doesn't interest me.

Re: seagull bay silver


I would rather use Mogul he has more potential with less inbreeding.

Re:


I have one Shaw calf, big, and aggressive eater. Nice through the feet and legs, she bred at 13 months and was taped over 1000 lbs.

Re: seagull bay silver


Ours shaws have always been extremely aggressive eaters and are always there to beg you for a rub on the head. Hope they calve in well. For us we have a few extremely big ones for what his pedigree would suggest. Freddie, planet,shottle and Oman all sire lower stature. What genomic bull would you even breed the shaws to? I think we ended up using Guthrie ( which won't help their stature). On heifers were using jareb, Freddie and shot, all of them are too close of matings for me.

Re:


Our Shaw is extremely friendly as well, that's interesting to hear. Ours was bred to Mccutchen, she is out of a great, extremely milky Damion.

Re: seagull bay silver


Mccutchen might be a good mating but that's still doubling up on shottle, planet and 3 x Oman! Hard to find something a little different, mogul would work alright with Oman being pushed back in mogul.
