Planning next calf crop

Postby gizmom » Sat Jun 30, 2018 7:34 am

I have spent the past couple of days picking AI sires for the next breeding season. The ET matings are in the tank, we plan to flush A couple starting the end of September to add a few more matings into the ET mix. So far we will be putting eggs in out of the following matings:

Champion Hill Emblynette 8502 x Resource
SAV Blackcap May 0524 x SAV Abundance 6117
SAV Abigale 913 x SAV Sensation
Sinclair Queen Mother 6R109 x coleman EXT 6149
SAV Blackcap May 0524 x Coleman EXT 6149
Sinclair Queen Mother 6R109 x SAV Reign

We will be flushing 0524 and SAV Blackbird 9057 both will be flushed to SAV Renown for sure then I am thinking Extension.

AI sires for the cow herd will be:

SAV Abundance 6117
SAV Reign
SAV Extension
Bruin Torque
SAV Resource
SAV Renown
Coleman Ext 6149
BC Matrix 4132

Edited to add Coleman Charlo

I am looking at Coleman Maverick for heifers but need to research him a bit more before I make the final call.

Anyone else already working on next season, if so what bulls are you planning to use?

Will be using a couple of bulls from the 195 cow: one is a son/dam mating, one is a by an old Shoshone bull, Might need to consider using her other two sons, both full brothers by our old 715 bull. If I AI I would use a linebred Graham linked bull or maybe another old Shoshone bull or two. Working on different lines and generally breeding within lines. Or I have other bulls that ought to be used. Sometime I am going back and use the old Paramont Ambush bull on selected cows. Those worked well. Maybe I ought to do a few of them in 2019. Don't need to raise anything with extra calving ease right now that I know of so will not be using any of that type semen but those bulls do sell well. Sometimes time and restraints set up what I do. I'll know more in about 10 months.
