Re:


What are everyone else favourite genomic mating's on their McCutchen daughters. As maiden heifers I used sexed Superhot and Megasire on most and am very pleased with the results. Type wise I would like to drop the rump and move the thurls forward. A bit more milk would be nice as well.
Jedi or Bandares look a great fit but are pricey options.

Re: DE-SU BKM McCutchen 1174


Thanks for the suggestions, I would like to keep the health traits and production moving forward. Some have high GTPI figures which I would also be loathed to sacrifice looking for more balanced all round bulls rather than just logical type matings.

Agree with Hayvalley, I have 6 that I need to breed in the next few weeks, I would love Heisenberg from Selectsires on them, but the pins say no. Mine have high pins.

Montross Duke might work, I also like Claynook Denim though his TPI isn't crazy high.

Re: DE-SU BKM McCutchen 1174


I am milking 3 McCutchens. 2 are second calvers, the other a heifer.

They are funny cattle. They look like the last thing a commercial farmer would want, way too tall, and a couple of mine are really frail, very narrow chest. But they have all gone VG once they have been calved a few months. Nice udders, great texture, attachments and teat placement.

All mine have got in calf first service and I have had no SCC issues with them. They have also milked pretty well.

I have had to mollycoddle one of them because of it's frailty although the classifier just made it VG87(2yr) and admittedly it looked well the day he saw it.

Re:


McCutchen has been a huge disapointment.
All tall , frail and immature 2 yo heifers with very high pins, bad feets and legs and no will to milk. They take quite a long time to milk as well. All of them are from several generations of VG/EX cows with great productions...
I've seen a lot of heifers in high type/show herds from some big families and they are not standout.
Im avoiding using bulls with McCutchen in the pedigree right now.
