Crooked Post Curfew with HC Lady Margie
Embryos from this breeding pair are currently available
Sire - Crooked Post Curfew 8F
Registration (Canadian) M481703
The sire of these embryos, Crooked Post Curfew 8F, is a great addition to our sire offerings from Crooked Post in Alberta Canada. Curfew 8F’s semen has already been exported to Australia and South Africa with a deal pending in the US, collection costs for semen to the UK and Europe along with bureaucracy currently prevent his semen export to us here in the UK. His dam Crooked Post Sam 8D is from their strong Sam female line, having a 370 day average calving cycle over 4 years. His sire, Saskvalley Curfew 41C is a large dark roan from the renowned Blossom line at Saskvalley. Curfew 8F is Homozygous Polled, has zero Myostatin and is ranked in the top 2% on the Australian all purpose index. Photo taken at 3 years old.
Dam - HC Lady Margie 26G
Registration (Canadian) *26705
Lady Margie 26G is exactly what we were looking for when we selected the breeding of her mother HC Lady Margie 1E, carrying great Australian genetics of Marellan Ferrari and Royalla Lady Margie. Paired to HC Elderado 68E, with his depth of proven breeding from HC Free Spirit and the Melba Niam female line at Horseshoe Creek. I had then planned to breed 26G on a flush with some Podehole Beefeater semen that I have stored in Canada, to perhaps create myself a possible new herd sire. However, the new genetic import rules now prohibit Beefeater genetics from being imported into the UK even though he was bred here. What a crazy world! Lady Margie 26G is a milky cow with a good udder, is long, deep bodied and has good locomotion with good legs and feet. Photo taken at 16 months old.
This genetic pairing blends some great Canadian genetics from renowned Canadian herds, on the sire’s side Crooked Post and Saskvalley, and the dam’s side with Horseshoe Creek and Australian genetics from Marellan and Royalla.
