Getting prepared for 2018 Breeding Season

Postby gizmom » Wed Sep 13, 2017 9:58 pm

Well we have five calves on the ground so far, but when the babies start arriving it is time to start thinking about the next breeding season. I still have three bulls on my must have in the tank list but got the bulk of what we will be using this year ordered today. Today I ordered:

SAV Resouce
SAV Renown
SAV Reign
SAV Abundance
Buford Pathfinder
Bruin Torque

The other three bulls that I want to use are:

Coleman Doc
SAV Sensation
OCC Zodiak

Anyone else got their bulls selected yet?

I have Mead Magnitude, Freys Opportunity, Connealy Black Granite, and Jindra Acclaim ordered. I will also use some Bridges Double Down, SF Speedway, and Sydgen Fate. If I had more cows I would like to use S Whitlock, and 3F Epic 4631.

I am ready for my spring breeding, its a disease I think. All I can think about is what semen I will be using next.

Heifers will be breed to LRS Elevate

Cows will have some Steel Force x Pays to Believe embryos implanted

Donors will be flushed to JF Milestone and............ (Not sure in the 2nd donor just yet), and then bred to W/C No Remorse and HPF Quantum Leap.

Still looking at possibilities and may wait until closer to breeding season to make a decision for sure. But so far I will be getting semen from NJW Hometown 10Y, KCF Bennett Encore Z311, R Leader 6964, and Hyalite On Target 936.

Our cows are due the middle of Oct to Buford Pathfinder I'm anxious to see those, haven't decided what to use next, if the pathfinder calves look good may use him again. Part of them will calve to our Really Windy 4097 son.

I've changed my mind so many times.
I'm thinking about trying ss Niagera on some cows this fall in hopes of making some awesome daughters.
I have about 40 heifers I will be breeding this spring Chisum and right answer daughters mostly(rest are Hereford/angus) thinking about throwing in some coneally comdrae in them.
Then I have around 60 more cows in the spring to breed I am still undecided on who to use. They are currently bred to sav reknown and var eldorado

Gizmom,
I thought you had some nice Sav Recharge calves? (I thought you had a really nice Recharge heifer in the Alabama sale)
I thought he might be on your list again.
I haven't made up my mind yet. I would like to use Connealy Century and Charlo.

Prob use SAV Bruiser again. Really also thinking about the ABS bull Hickock for heifers, and may also use his sire Consensus 7229 for cows.

Hogtiming,
I haven't seen any updates on Southside. I saw that his son the Rock is being used.
Have you seen anything out of him or had some? I also like No Doubt.
