EXCELLENT pedigree base - Fine phenotype. What are her numbers??? EPD's? % Ratios? Did you get this cow from Rishel at their Sale Sunday????????? If so - - what Lot #?? Talk to me!! Talk to me!!Angus Breeder said:She is a four year old B/R New Design O36 out of a Traveler 124 cow.
FH - when I saw the title of this post, I thought that it was your cow! We have been in So. Calif. (UGH!!!) for 10 days, and just got back last night, so I have been off the forum for a while. This is a W-A-A--Y-Y-Y better Angus cow than the average. Who owns her? To whom is she bred?Faster horses said:Angus Breeder do you own this particular cow?
Ah Ha-a I understand competely! She is a FINE donor, and I would flush her as often as I could also. You are fortunate to have a corner on those genetics and I would savor them carefully.Angus Breeder said:Express Angus Ranches in Ok owns this particular cow. We own a daughter and a full sister both of whom are too young to be pictured yet. I thought you guys that have used the New Desig line might be intrested in seeing a nationally recognized daughter of the original bull(O36). To the best of my knowledge the cow is bring used exclusivley in an Embryo Transfer program and not expected to have a natural for a long time.

She is your typical O36 daughter. If I was going to improve on her I would proably change the set to her legs. She is just a little to shallow in her pastern for me.
Denny, I don't know what kind of operation you run but at my place the cows with this kind of depth of chest and guts will work for me. I don't know a thing about black pedigrees but I'll take them like her all day long.Denny said:I'd turn her out in real world conditions with a calf at side then judge her in the fall if she came in open send her to town now remember FEEDS THE BREED.Open cows are easy to keep in a fleshy condition 4 year old in a flush program to me that in it self is not doing anything but chaseing fads but hey if you can sell it go for it.
Another thing about EPD #s they are only as good as the breeder you submit's them.
$215,000 for 1 cow it's rich people playing kind of like racehorses no differance.
Someday people will ask what breed is that and the reply will be well ahhhhh"I think she corn soybean and alfalfa.
The cow is PRETTY but functional in the real world I doubt.
Real seedstock breeder's should run their Reg.Cows harder than the cow calf operation's of that area....
Ever notice these big so called "Ranches" calve all year long WHY???????
