It is with a great deal of pleasure for us to present our Dora Lee entries for our Fleckvieh Forum sale on October 5, at the Bar 5 sales facility, Markdale ON. These 2 bred heifers and an exceptional heifer calf showcase our breeding program. All three are polled and daughters of our senior herdsire Equinox. His offspring are long bodied, well muscled and are making excellent brood cows. Lydia has exceptional genomic test results for feed efficiency and average daily gain.
Dora Lee’s Tasha FF 98Z
Polled 100% Fleckvieh- born December 9, 2012 – birth weight 96
Tasha has been a stand out since birth, turning heads as folks tour our pastures. While attending the Buzzard Hollow sale in May, 2008, Fred had three flush mate sisters in the sale ring , selling one and retaining the other two. Tonika has impressed us from day one, moving quickly to the top of our leader board. We believe Tasha has it all, a blend of African and time proven genetics from our Equinox bull. Take this impressive heifer calf home and breed her to the bull of your choice. It is our belief that she is the best heifer calf born here for some time. We also believe that Tasha will produce for her new owner like her mother has for us. When Tasha steps into our sale ring October 5th, it will be with a great deal of pride for Betty and I.

Dora Lee’s Lydia FF 46Z
Polled 100% Fleckvieh – born January 20, 2012 – birth weight 95
Bred AI February 28 to Sanmar Polled Pharao – no exposure
Lydia is out of a very productive and fertile female (Lindsay) who calves early every year and settles first service each year.
Lydia’s genetics on her bottom side go back to a female we imported from the U.S. Lydia’s genomic score is very impressive placing her top 5% for ADG and top 10% for RFI (feed efficiency). Wow!!! She is sired by our Equinox bull who just plain and simply put, is making his mark here, across Canada and abroad. We believe Lydia will follow in her mother’s foot steps with a tremendous upside, with her whole life still ahead of her. These good ones are certainly hard for us to part with. Opportunity knocks. ” Fullblood Fleckvieh Genetics at their best”

Dora Lee’s Lady Asha FF 22Y
Polled 100% Fleckvieh – born Decenber19, 2011 – bw 98
bred AI April 5 and again April 27 to Sanmar Polled Pharao – no exposure
Lady Asha comes from a strong cow family that has worked extremely well for us and is a grand daughter of one of our foundation females, SRN Ms Western 2Y. She is sired by our Equinox bull who is getting it done not only here in Canada, but also in the U.S, Sweden and South Africa. We believe that this is a winning combination. Lady Asha showcases her awesome length with lots of natural muscling. We have used the Pharao bull on our heifers with great success. If by chance you may be looking for a powerful female with a family history of producing those top end bulls and heifers, we believe Lady Asha has what it takes to raise the bar.
