Female Wish List
Holyfield did it again for us! You'll notice Helga's dam is a Bulldozer cow. Igenity scored 4 stars! GE-epds show her potential as a power cow in the future, but what I was most excited for was her ultra-low RFI score of 2 and scores 8/10 for ww yw and adg. EDPs show her as a higher bw heifer but calving ease scores in that 65/70 range, while sporting ww in the top 25%, yw in the top 15, tm in the top 20. Once again, carcass traits are elite, top 2% for hot carcass weight, top 10 for cfat, top 15% for REA. To complete the package, she has that nice Boxer style head; she's bigger than our other offering, a little more power in her design, both calves I would love to keep, but a good showcase of what we strive to produce and what you come to expect from us in the future, a right balance of production traits and carcass ability. We may be new on the block, but good cattle have been a lifelong passion, and we hope our love for Gelbvieh and its potential shines through.

Powerful and production-oriented are words to describe this female. Twinview Rainbow 1F is sired by the many time champion bull, Boogyman.

This female throws way back to the great GT Louie Bull. And has SLC freedom in her veins. One of the oldest cows but still works and looks good. Classics are the best. Her calves are full of vigour at birth, and always get up and suck within the hour. She is to good a momma to discredit on her age.
