Re:


Apple Crisp *RC at Accelerated. a Mayfield son of Apple's VG88 Goldwyn daughter. High fat from a high type bull who should really tighten up the udders. He has very well rounded numbers from production to type to DPR and PL.

Re: Mating Suggestions for My Only Holstein Heifer


What does everyone think about either Ladd-P, to add polled and perhaps a chance at Red, or Sanchez, high type and continue to avoid "the big 7" (Bolton, Oman, Shottle, Goldwyn, Planet, Robust, Bookem)?

Re:


Both of those bulls tend to sire strength. Ladd-P will probably sire a bit of rounder boned cows. I really like them, and think they will develop well, but they don't have that really milky appearance (his proof reflects as much). Probably will make good old cows, maybe not the flashy 2 year old type.

Sanchez might put a bit more style to Advent, but he is also a strength bull.

Not sure if your heifer is red or RC, but if she is, I would go Ladd-P. My only concern with these two bulls is that I always considered Advent and Talent to be lacking in dairyness, strength was tremendous, but they were not very refined. Putting more strength over them might not result in a very dairy cow - but if you are not breeding for show, then it might not matter to you.

If u want Red and Polled then Lad looks the best bull to use but I think Atwood or Fever would give u better results especially for show type.

Re:


She has style - I think you'll be fine with Ladd-P.

That is a smart heifer that looks a perfect cross for Fever or Atwood both bulls have proven themselves to make quality unlike Ladd who has just been proven and quite a few of his daughters do not look very fancy I would rather wait with Ladd.

Re:


I think Ladd's proof is pretty solid now - he has about 100 classified, and a few hundred on his production proof. Using Atwood on this heifer would make her pins higher. She has quite a bit of style - and her rump is good as it is, Atwood would only jack the pins up higher and narrower her front-end. Fever would be fine.
