we have gone to sales, made breeding plans, purchased a cow, semen straws, and EMBRYOS, oh my!! lol! it has been so much fun! We are thrilled about the recent purchase of two sets of embryos from the Perez cattle company sale... we picked up NJW 127Z 93C Partner 134E(43830160) x C&M NEW MEXICO LADY 2034(43313610) and NJW 79Z 22Z MIGHTY 49C ET(43589057) x MSU KEEPSAKE 32N (42392375). We have also made some crazy semen purchases from a variety of different sources that we feel will advance our program tremendously.
The NJW embryos babies are here!! we have rtf 456b 135u queen vaca f35et, rtf 88x 149z miss lexy f49 et, and last, but certainly not least rtf 3x 4c foundation f34 et. Click the names and you will be taken to the aha animal details. we are sooooo excited about the little foundation bull. he was born with thick 'meaty' legs and a very gentle disposition. foundation's epds are out of this world!! he is the calving ease king. we have already sent off the dna for all three. The heifers have already received their et permit and we are waiting for the epd updates october 1st.
The Annual meeting is coming up Josh and I will be participating this year. We look forward to seeing everyone and attending the educational forums. and of course, nwss countdown is on!! we booked everything back in august. this is always one of our favorite events.
We are a smaller, up and coming farm, but we are making strides this year! Thanks to our breeder friends for their advice and support - you know who you are! we are beyond excited about what the future holds!! as always thank you to our customers. we continue to strive to bring you some of the best genetic offerings out there to help increase your profitability.
