Cow families that have faded into obscurity


My brother and I were talking about how well our Jeeves have been ticking along, and he was asking if there was any other bulls that have popped up from that cow family.

A bit of a search reveals that, unless I missed something, there aren't many animals left around that came from the Juror/Jeeves line. If I missed spotting someone please let me know.

The other one I found a while ago was the family line of the Australian proven sire Elite Gold Bullion (from Rosy-Lane). There are 2-3 living relatives now in the registered population, the rest vanished after herd dispersals.

So here's the question, what other cow families have seemingly vanished?

Here is a link to line of Jeeves' family in the UK. The Duster cow, Aytonian Justine, was a fabulous cow.

The first ten lots in the Progress of Pen-Col sale held yesterday were out of the Jeeves/Juror line. Really good family, up to 13 generations VG/EX.

Sailor is my second all time favourite bull. They are essentially immortal. I also sold a lot of Roebuck and Mathie and they were excellent cows, but the Bell Sears cow family seems to have all but disappeared?

Given how good the longevity transmitted by the Sears family it is ironic that it should disappear!

Sometimes you just get a run of bad luck with cow families though.

Found this one Smous, so there's a couple kicking about. Can't see any recent bulls though.
