Re:


and then there is a bull like Windbrook for instance who dies and instantly; semen is hard to get. Then Doorman becomes non-producing and instantly any stock they have at Semex is in tight supply.... but Goldwyn is still in plentiful supply

We recently had a Sanchez x Blitz give birth to a Doorman. the Blitz is a EX-91 cow, so I have a lot of faith in this youngster

I got offered 10 dose of Windbrook this morning, but I think 60 euro per dose is bit to much for this bull.

Wat makes you say that dabble? Anything consistant or just a lack of that something special?

Re: DOORMAN


We had the classifier here about 6 weeks ago.

The classifier said that when you get the udder texture right on Windbrook they are good. He thought Windbrook was probably the best type bull around at the moment.

We have loads of Windbrook in calf heifers at the moment. There are some nice ones amongst them. If they make nice udders they will probably be mostly pretty good.

Re:


I like Windbrook, don't get me wrong. I like him because he's relatively outcross and sires strength in his offspring. I bet he will put tidy, correct udders on his daughters consistently. Will they be the type to sire show winners at the big shows, I don't think so, but I hope I am proven wrong. I do not think they will be able to compete with the Atwood type at the big shows. But I wouldn't mind milking Windbrook's as they are uniform but maybe lack the angularity that is desired in "high type" these days

Outcross?? He's from the heart of the Goldwyn family, the one stop shop for type breeding

Guess that depends on what dam-line you're breeding him to? I like Sid better for type but legs can be a ??

Re: DOORMAN


Dabble, I think you are correct about Windbrook's type of type!
