#1 in U.S. Saanens for Protein in 305 days.
DD GCH SINGAPORE LA-90 177 lbs of fat in 305 days.
After all these years a doe with freaky butterfat! But - Can she pass it on?? YESSS!! Her son is the highest living USDA rated Saanen, mainly because of his dau’s b.f. & pro.
Awesome mammary. Has one RGCH in 4 shows.
Tiny at birth. Nice rear leg angulation and VERY NICE escutcheon. The back feet are mediocre. Sure would like to use SKYWALKER, whose sire is SNOW, page 22 and whose dam is, page 37.
The original plan is ZEPPO LA-90. If we use YELSON, we probably get the next number one buck on the sire summary, aka Elite Buck List. That is fine for fame and glory, but it sells out our one chance to really move up the b.f. percents and more importantly, the protein percents. So when time permits will go all the way through the bucks and look for the biggest PTAP (Predicted Transmitting Ability Protein %). If you care about the size of your milk check, or if you care about how much cheese you make from each gallon of milk, you may want to look at the end of the list where we discuss this.
A disappointing second lactation, which didn’t cause her to get kicked out of the 99th percentile. EXCEPT THE B.F.! 143 will easily make TOP TEN! Freaky.
Her 2011 buck kid works in Quebec. Her 2009 buck is the highest rated living Saanen on the USDA Elite Buck List. (Go to adga.org. Click on Performance Programs. Click on Elite Bucks.)
GOAT BUYING TIP:
See how WINNEMUCCA’s b.f. % jerks around. That happens all over the country. So, if you have a choice between two Saanens, rely on the one with the milk numbers more than the b.f. one with the butterfat numbers.
WINNEMUCCA’s 2013 Buck Kid will be an excellent buy for some dairyman because we already have one. His name is ZURICH and he is the highest rated buck on the USDA Elite Buck list. So we don’t need another one.
