Re: Seagull-Bay Supersire


I agree with Buckeye.

I can't think of a Mark, Blackstar, Durham or Shottle son better than their father.

However, it is a bit too early to say judge just how good Supersire is. His production appears outstanding, for the rest, time will tell.

That always was the strength of the diversitiy of the Holstein breed, an old superstar was replaced by a new one coming from an unexpected direction.

Re: Seagull-Bay Supersire


We have calved in a total of 9 Supersire daughters. Of the 9 there is one very nice heifer, I would say she would score about 81-82 points as a two year old and she is also milking over 100 pounds. The other 8 are nothing special, poor udders and legs and too small. One of them has actually been sold already as she was a dud. He also made a lot of high somatic cell count heifers, as 4 of them are among the top 7 in the barn. Very disappointing results for a bull that has been so highly rated for so long.

Re: Seagull-Bay Supersire


The SCC results you have had are interesting Escocito because Supersire's full brother, Headliner, is an awful bull for SCC and Robust is not a great SCC bull either.

I have only one Supersire milking. She is a VG88 (3yr) that is 8 months into her second lactation. She is a favourite of mine. A medium sized cow with fantastic production and good health traits. I would like 200 cows like her.

Re:


I liked them a lot as heifers;

Now they calved and im very disappointed.
Poor udders
Below average feets and legs
Milk production is not as good as expected (between 18000 and 20500 lbs in 1st lactation)
Components are nothing special.
And they are not the kind of cows that will last long in the herd

Re: Seagull-Bay Supersire


I read somewhere recently that in the UK there are over 45 daughters classified VG and all that are classified average 83 points.
Classifier here today said he really liked them.

Re: Seagull-Bay Supersire


US classifier told me he hated Supersire. Hasn't seen one he would rave about. I only have 2, both 2 year olds, both due to dry off soon. Both are out of very good, proven cow families. They milk well, I will give them that. Very mature udders for their ages, rear udder attachments are left to be desired, very heavy cows. I would be hard pressed to find a rib on either one of them. I prefer a cow with straighter leg for my operation and both of these cows have sickle legs and I do not foresee their pasterns holding up for more than a couple of years.
