It is amazing how often the good old standby sire and dams show up in a pedigree. We have spent over 50 years getting rid of any animal that gives problems. The result is less problems. Maternal grandsire is our DDA Banjo 1101, he is also sire to our DDA B&T 18K and full brother to DDA Sandy 404. The DDA Fahren 5Z is a bull that spent most of his life in a commercial herd and we bought back. He is a descendant of our 580/368 cow family that I talk about so much. Almost every animal in our herd traces back to this great cow family somewhere. On the very bottom of pedigree is Zelda 052 DDA, she also is a dependent of the 580/368 cow family. We have “very good” in all categories of our critique list, in comments I wrote “very deep and thick”.
