Registered Cows
1. EXT
2. Right Time
3. OCC Big Time
4. SAV Regard
Registered Heifers
1. Confidence Plus
2. OCC Paxton
Commercial Cows a Limflex Bull
MAGS Cuddly Kept

Our registered herd was started within the last 10 years. It has been a crash course on pedigrees but I really enjoy searching for bulls that I feel will improve our herd. What bulls will you be using mncowboy?

Well, maybe you can help me decide. I have an open Ten X heifer out of a Sitz Upward cow.
My choices for her are Sandpoint Butkus, Connealy Confidence or Coleman Charlo.

I have a Sav Mustang cow with too much milk.
Charlo, Var Reserve or Ten X.

I will also be using Var Discovery

Have you used boulder in the past? I like our GC son a lot he's almost two. I just bought two more GC heifers from Todd. I've also got one GC heifer that I'm getting AI'd to new vision right now.
