Affliction's picture is a week away and think about what makes an Elite sire.

Stay tuned for this future DIFFERENCE MAKER. If we are to move forward and make genetic progress as a club calf industry, we need to look at and discuss the main area's that Affliction can offer us as a sire to move forward.

We as an industry have accepted that Irish Whiskey can sire those females that excel in production. The only down fall to Irish Whiskey is that he is a carrier of PHA. I realize that there are several good Irish Whiskey son's to chose from but if we are going to move forward geneticly we need to identify the PHA free son's.  Affliction is tested PHA FREE!

Let's discuss Affliction's mother: JSUL Dreams Come True. She hails from the John Sullivan herd that is by far the most dominant show cattle herd in the country. JSUL Dreams Come True herself was a dominant show heifer for the Bridwell family by winning several supreme titles including the North American. The North American is the hardest of shows to win with the simple fact that all the best ones are there showing. John Sullivan has had his hand in the last 5 supreme champions at this show. Two of which would be full sister's in blood including Affliction's mother and this year's supreme champion for the Elder family. Now that's power and the list keeps going on.  Affliction is out of Elite genetics and proven documented history.

Affliction is TH free. I know that we all think that the only way to get enough hair is to have a TH carrier but I will argue that with Affliction. As a cattle breeder if you have a TH carrier female your choices are greatly limited with today's steer sire options. Look forward and move forward geneticly with a TH free option.  Affliction can make that list.

Affliction is sired by Irish Whiskey an Elite sire.
Affliction is out of an Elite cow from an Elite Program.
Affliction is a rare find of TH and PHA free.
Affliction is in my opinion, an Elite individual. Hopefully you'll agree with his picture next week.

The list to get semen has started, just text me at 319.850.1563 to get on the list. If you don't like his picture I'll take you off.
