Falster heifers 2013 Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Some of our pasture exposed 1st time heifers on www.FalsterFarm.com Falster Pure Bred Miniature Hereford Heifers - 2013 The following presentation exhibits a group of heifers that were brought into the corrals on 1 AUG 13. Current availability is subject to prior sale. These are only a few of the heifers we have available. They represent a good cross section of our 5 herd. All have been pastured exposed to the Pure Bred miniature Hereford herd sire indicated in their respective notes. In order to break a condition instilled by damns of unsatisfactory disposition, two presented here have been reared on a bottle and then given to a gentle surrogate mama,. They proved themselves worthy to carry the Falster brand of miniature Hereford seed stock.
  • 2. Falster’s selection process begins at birth: Every once in awhile, for whatever reason (maybe traits skipping a generation), you’ll have a calf that proves out wrong, but mainly we have a pretty good idea about which heifer calves will make replacements or foundation stock, shortly after they are born. The notes section provided with these slides indicate points used to help in our earliest decision process; at birth, at weaning, and at branding is another opportunity to double check how they are coming along, if our standards are met, if our breeding plan is working. We usually don’t have very many surprises when it comes to weaning time. We go back on the cow records several generations — to the granddame or even farther, so we are looking at the pedigree both top and bottom on the registered cattle we sell. No, we do not sell culls. Every competent breeder has his/her own specific goals in selecting female replacements, and these goals often vary a little depending on the ranch environment, priorities for cow herd traits, and what the customers purchasing seed stock out of that herd might want. In the miniature cattle world it’s especially important for a producer to set breeding program goals and select females to meet those goals just like the Falster family does each year. Even if the buyer is seeking a pet, program breeding and a selection process can offer the very best possibility of satisfaction and success. Falster genetics offers that quality.
