Just got the new Fall Catalogue from a major A'I' stud-which one it is doesn't matter as they are all are pretty much the same-what I can't get over is the mile high milk e.p.d's-hardly a bull under 20 and several bulls over 30-I just can't imagine daughters off those bulls to be practical under most ranch conditions. To put it in perspective we got a few higher milk PB cows they run out with the rest of the cows plus the kids old Jersey nurse cows. That old Jersey winters better than most of them-personally I find cows off bulls that are few pounds or so either way of breed average work best. The funny thing about extra milk to get more weaning weight by the time those calves are finished the high weaners have gotten caught up to or even passed. Excessive milk just is adding to cost of production I'm thinking at least if you retaimn ownership as we do.
