Pedigree Analysis–Breeder’s Perspective
In 2017 we were looking to add a few foundational polled Jerseys to the Elquest herd. A dealer contacted us about a a pair of polled full sisters that were bred heifers. Their dam was an EX 91 cow that spent extended time on a flush program for the export market. She had an EX 92 sister as well. The pedigree fit our philosophy of building not only from deep pedigrees but more importantly from wide cow families.
We had no idea that the genetics we purchased in those two heifers would be so impactful. Today Shadow (Saber’s dam) is EX-92 and her full sister is EX-93. More impressive is their transmitting ability. Saber’s only sister is already VG-88 at three years. The 93 point sister to Shadow has an EX daughter at three years as well as an 87 point two year old daughter. The consistently beautiful udders is a family trademark.
Then there are thing that never show up on paper. The attitude – not a mean, hard to work with attitude but a toughness and a determined “will to live” attitude. When the cows go
out to pasture, Shadow puts her tail up and gallops out of the barn. With that attitude comes an agility that allows her to make the turn at the end of the barn without falling. In five years of galloping I have never seen her fall.
