Re: Milking Earnhardt's


with less than 40% being good plus I'm thinking they are not going to be less than [sign in to see URL] only had one heifer under GP last class round and she was a goldsun from an EX linjet that was 1 for chest width and to be honest she has been tossed into the pit twice already off the platform because she is too frail and narrow and get steam rolled out of the way and her legs go wosh and into the pit she [sign in to see URL] udder is quite nice and functional but the rest of her is serverely [sign in to see URL] I couldn't bring myself to use him unless I hopped on a plane and looked at every single daughter and dam myself and then I would really have to love his pedigree to do that

High scoring cows generally equals tall, angular and frail. No thanks. They even made up the term dairy strength to describe tall angular cows that aren't actually strong at all.

Re: Milking Earnhardt's


Our Earnhardt scored 82 pts on a SET today. As milky a 2 yr old as we've had in some time, 113#/day on 2x. As far as the bull himself, he was initially pegged as an outstanding production bull, huge protein. Below avg health traits, SCC over 3, and below avg fore udder and depth. Would guess his genomics are going to be pretty accurate. He was needed in the polled arena for his production, and by the looks of Powerball, will leave his mark.
I must say, that for all the faults that Lawn Boy, Colt-P, and Earnhardt have, polled has gained momentum and is here to stay. Just use your imagination as to what Seagull-Bay will do with a PP 2654 GTPI heifer mated to the best bulls of the breed. Still don't think polled is good enough??

Re: Milking Earnhardt's


sunny lodge linjets +5 dairy strength is made up of
stature minus 3
height at front end +4
chest width +14
body depth +15
angularity minus 8

2941 daus 87% GP and only 7 fair


in contrast Goldwyn's +5 dairy strength is
+6 stature
+2 height of frontend
-3 chest width
-4 body depth
+9 angularity

34805 daus 86%GP ands 276 fair

sorry for taking this off topic but unless you look at the breakdowns things are not obvious


guess who has the body condition score of 95 and who's is 113?

Re: Milking Earnhardt's


Earnhardt's looks nothing special I don't think u could expect great potential for type using Man-O-Man with Lawn Boy there seems to be no strength or a solid rump in that cross and u have the Man-O-Man udder as well to deal with.

Earnhardt would of been more interesting if he was sired by Sanchez (Same family as Earnhardt) who is probably one of the best crosses for Lawn Boy to improve type strength and balance

Re:


I think that's the problem with polled bulls- none of them are special for type anyway.

Man-O-Man's type is incredibly mediocre/poor seeing how they turned out in my grandma's herd.

crossing him with Lawn Boy to double up the Manfred doesn't seem very wise anyway.
