Predator report from Brink!

Todd Brink, MI sent me this picture of this Predator heifer calf out of a Rising Stars cow he purchased in our November sale. To say Todd is excited is an understatement. He's coming from MI to pick up more Predator semen this week. Todd purchased the 5 ml heifer semen also, more heifers to come. Success is so fun isn't it.

Predator report from Wedig.

Hey Chad,
We just had a Predator Heifer out of that Who Da Man x Heatseeker/6651 that was the Champion AOB at the 2009 American Royal that you liked when you were up a few weeks ago. Calf looks great, up and sucking in 30 mins. Really excited to see how she develops with those great genetics behind her on both sides!
Justin Wedig

Thanks Justin, she is more impressive as a cow than a very impressive show heifer. Also be sure to watch this program Irish Whiskey and Heat Wave et's I think coming this spring out of this donor.
