Raising the Bar

Here it is, late September, fall is in the air. Our 364 day search continues for elite, polled, outcross Flechvieh genetics. We had the privilege of attending the Ontario Autumn Simmental Classic where our pick of the sale was Vail View Cassie FF4C . We were successful and have added Cassie to our herd.

Cassie’s sire is Dora Lee Huck, a Canadian Siegfried Son, a bull born and developed here before going to Vail View as their herd sire. Huck has an impressive feed efficiency (RFI) score placing him in the top ten percent ” WOW ”.

Come mid October, Betty and I will be traveling west to Alberta to spend quality time with our daughter-in-law Jeanne and son Dennis at Apple Cross as we  continue our 364 day search for elite out cross polled heifers. Our plan is to tour some herds and attend a sale. Then do everything in our power to bring a quality polled Flechvieh female here to Dora Lee.

We plan on attempting to again “raise the bar” here at Dora Lee. Are we there yet? Nope, not yet.

“Our love of our Fleckvieh breed, is unwavering.”

Thank you for listening.
