Crooked Post Stockman with Glenford Promise
Embryos from this breeding pair are currently available
Sire - Crooked Post Stockman 4Z
Registration (Canadian) M476682
Crooked Post Stockman was sired by Belmore Jackaroo, the renowned Australian bull. Stockman’s dam is from the Red Rose line at Crooked Post, which is a strong proven maternal line. Stockman has now been used extensively at Crooked Post, and if ever a bull placed his stamp on his calves he has, certainly from what I have seen on my visits. Stockman is a trait leader for CED (Calving Ease Direct) and EPD, British Maternal Index as defined by the American Shorthorn Association. He in my eyes is just the perfect bull both in eye appeal and proven breed traits. Crooked Post retained the large part of his 2016 daughters to enlarge their breeding plans. We have numerous embryos available sired by Stockman along with semen from his Canadian sons Crooked Post Drover and DF Super Mario, see our semen section for details. We have retained a small group of heifers from a Stockman son (Wenmar Major), an embryo by Waukaru 12 Melita Rose 5021.
Dam - Glenford Promise 71Z
Registration (Canadian) F690217
Promise 71Z was our pick out of the cows at Glenford as a donor, she is from a great female line and how right we were to select her. Over three flushes she produced over 30 embryos for us, which is a great testament to the strength of her maternal line. Both Glen and Ryan at Glenford were concerned that we should select donors that would produce stock here in the UK and Europe which could promote their herd, this cow certainly has the potential to do that. Crazy as it sounds, but her greatest negative in some people’s eyes is her colour, this breeding of her to Stockman cannot fail from my knowledge of both herds to almost guarantee to produce stock bulls and great females.
The breeding of Stockman from Crooked Post to Promise from Glenford, is in our view the way you cannot fail to produce excellent heifers and bulls. The figures from Crooked Post linked to the consistency of this female line at Glenford should not be ignored, colour does not matter traits are what produce sound breeding stock.
