Ivan Daughters Averaged 83 Points!

We had a great day. Had several cows raised a couple of points to 87 and 88, but no new Excellents. The best part was the 2 year olds out of our own herd bull Ter-View Rocco Ivan. The average score of a 2 year old in the US is a measly 76 points. Pretty sad. Everyone knows only ignorant backwards folks use their own bulls, right. We were very pleased that Ivan had 2 daughters score VG 85 and none below 80. He is a son of a Juno son that was out of a EX 96 Top Brass, the next 6 dams are EX. His dam is our very own Ter-View Iva J. Iva was an EX daughter of J Imperial who lived to be 11 years old and had a top record of over 30,000 pounds in 305 days. Her dam was a EX92 Duncan who also had a 30,000 pound record. We also have calves on the ground by Ivan's brother sired by Top Prize.

Way to go!! Ivan sounds pretty good to me. Seems we have taken a step backwards as we got the first heifer calf out of the first herd bull here. Hard to find a good pedigree bull unless you want the same ole thing. Who scored you? How'd the Just wait go???

Terminology question: I thought it was by the father/sire/bull/whatever, out of the mother/dam/cow/whatever? Or do I have it backwards?

It was a lady from kentucky that scored us, don't remember her name. I'll have to look on the sheet and get back to you on the name. She did a good job, certainly didn't give anything away.

You are right, but I'm allowed to say it any darn way I want. :)
