Oh dear!! I bought five doses at the holstein show but have only used one (on an Ex Rudolph X Ex Raider)that held and is due in [sign in to see URL] for a show calf!I think I'll hang on to the other 4 and either sell them for a fortune or chuck them down the slats!!

I am starting to hear reports of a Storm son called Start?out of Ernlo Highlight Cinderella which was tested in Spain. A test daughter has just won its class in a big show there. They are expecting a very high type proof in August proofs.

Cant find anything on Start .. believe the dam is Ernlo Cinderella .. she has 2 proven Storm sons hovering around +1.2 type merit.

The Bull from Spain is -Diutacio Storm Startit-#espm1701411810 only 80% rel., [sign in to see URL] type,3.5 udder,[sign in to see URL]&l,[sign in to see URL],.04%fat, [sign in to see URL] % prot.

   I saw the aforementioned [sign in to see URL] our spring national show,super udder ,very correct,but small.

  I thought about buying a few straws before he got his proof,but wasn't too impressed with his [sign in to see URL] brothers [sign in to see URL]'t seen any more daugh. but heard of some real stylish calves last summer.

  We wont buy anything unless we can still get it at young sire prices.

none too keen on that big minus for protein, all very well chasing fat again but protein cannot be ignored. Where is the high fat, high protein, high type bull?????

I think thats the Spanish proof .. have no idea what the conversion to UK is ..
 
 Would think they are still trying to invent that bull that does everything.. high components high milk and high type.
