Re: Durham son


I bought a pick of a Stormatic from a Dellia granddaughter. When I went to pick her out they (the flush mates) were in a box stall. They ran round and round and round.

Our pick has been broken to lead since then.

Re: Durham son


In the herd I am currently working with, we haven't used any Durham semen due to my past experiences with Durham daughters. I milked almost 20 Durham two year olds at one point, and I wouldn't wish that upon anyone, with their temperaments being set aside. I have never seen a bull pull the strength, fore rib, and width out of a cow quite like that. With that being said, I have been watching for the right Durham son to come along, and I finally found him among the sea of Durham sons with bad sire [sign in to see URL] is a Durham x the EX96 Hanoverhill Lincoln daughter, Vital-I Lincoln Bonnie. I think this is a very complimentary mating, and will be using him as a mating sire in my program for the next year or so. He has calves hitting the ground right now and they are quite nice from the reports I've heard.

Re: Durham son


Mark, do you think that a Durham off of a Storm will have enough front end? I would also agree with errolston, a double cross of Dellia could mean a shortage of teeth in the parlour!

That was my first thought,my second being the likely lack of production.
I am not rushing to order any but I think some people might be interested in him.

Sounds like a good cross what is his name?

Re: Durham son


shilt79, a nutritionalist stopped in and noticed how many Durhams I had running around and told me how my Durhams were better then the ones he sees out and about at larger dairies. I asked if they were being used while protecting strength and he didn't think so. They were just using him across the board. Go figure!

Re: Durham son


I got my monthly Select Direct Sales litature last week noticed for there summer special if you bought so much Select Semen you could by 50 units of Durham at 20$ off.

He was in yesterday and I mentioned it and why the drastic drop in price?

His reply was Select wanted it all gone by the August Run.
He had reservations for his final allotment but told me there is a reserve of RED TOP Durham to be released next [sign in to see URL] wants that out of inventory as well by August?

Seems a bit weird to me there thinking?

Re: Durham son


 Either Durhams proof is about to bomb or they have something really fantastic due out in August which they want everyone to switch on to.

Re: Durham son


We are hearing good reports of very stylish Zeniths - a Durham from Ocean View Mandel Zandra Ex95. First ones calving out in UK now (a little later than USA).We have 6 or so calving in West Midlands We will be viewing them soon and if his proof looks good in August we may have some for all to see at the Dairy Event.
Actually, the first Durham we tested was Markwell DJ but he turned out to be cvm+ so we tested a near relative called Rythym.
another one was Dandy from Spain who was from the Wilsondale Triuna family. All three come from cows nominated for "Queen of the Breed"
Select have obviously tested more Durhams than anyone else so hopefully we will have a few to wet your appetites later this year.
