Testing….one…two…three…

….testing.20140711_4  We have bred three of our Traditional Devon™ America English bulls to American cows now….part of developing a track record on our imported genetics. Here are two by either TDA Churchill or TDA Wellington….we’re not sure which…the DNA people aren’t even sure.  We hadn’t anticipated that problem dealing with flush mates.  But we’re sure the lab will finally figure it out. One thing we notice in the bull calf at the left….he brings nice thickness all the way forward.  American cows are notorious for weak shoulders.  It will take a lot more calves to be sure but hopefully English genetics can help our American herds in several respects.
