Re: Ridge-Star Journalist


Of the first 43 daughters of journalist classified in the uk (range from gp77 to vg89) they are averaging over 83pts, where will this put his type merit?

Re: Ridge-Star Journalist


I know it is unlikely to stay that way, but the interesting point there is that the worst so far is 77 points, so as well as some really good ones there are no absolute pillocks.

I think you will be disappointed if you try to get some semen from Journalist - as from a UK perspective at least... there isn't any to be had!

But we are very glad you like them!

Something very milky!!

We have three milking and are a little [sign in to see URL] first will most likely be served with Belgium Blue as it is not milking at [sign in to see URL] has to be milked with a kick bar and the ACR off and is slow on one [sign in to see URL] other two are both pretty imature but given time may develop.I should think they will be served with either Jocko Besne,lucente or even Raul which we have just ordered 20 straws of.

Re: Ridge-Star Journalist


Just witnessed a Journalist winning Res. Supreme at the Ulster Winter Fair, she came from England i think - Cumrew Journalist Debra, she had some style and a near perfect rear udder, would like to pull the front teats in a little, but she looked real good.

Re: Ridge-Star Journalist


we are OK with ours as far as milk goes. The first two are a twin from what wouldn't be one of our milkiest families, and compared to the other heifers milking around them they are actually milking above expectations, but you wouldn't call them flyers. Fat % is good, decent frames, legs and dairy. Udders OK, but would go along with what Mckeague said, would like to pull front teats back in a little. Both had heifer calves by Dellka Juror Gordon which shouldn't be a bad mating.

We have a good number to serve as maidens in the next nine months. At the moment I would say most of these will go to Comestar Lee to pull the front teats back in.

Be interesting to see what the ones from our high milk families come in like.

Yep, I am linked but am also helping to run the admin & breeding side of the herd at home... don't suspect my [sign in to see URL] can not be swayed or bought in ANY way!
