    I like to look at pedigrees too- but make mine goats!

    Here's some info on this bull and his dam. She's really got it all- type, production, and unreal mastitis resistance.

    More bull info. at Taurus' website under "additional Jersey bulls".

    If you want to see some detailed info on that bull, go to www.altagenetics.com and type it into the search box. Gives some good info.

    BTW: I searched up info on that bull, it does come up on the site mentioned.

    Well @ 4 months from birthing, it is hard to find the youngen. Generally I can feel them 3 months prior, sometimes 4, if the calf is in the right position. It usually is small, and this hard lump. You usually have to really push with your fist on her right side. Usually ill get kinda low, and push, bump of sorts to feel. It won't hurt it, I've done this to the herefords plenty of times. The cow might feel uncomfortable, so if she acts "stop it", wait a month.
