‘New Dawn’: This buck is the best son of “Grasshill Sunrise New Day” EX 92, who in turn is the best daughter of none other than “Grasshill Nadia” EX 92, one of the highest total production goats in the world with a lifetime production of 20,114 kg. Nadia has kidded 8X, milked 3533 days, and been dry only 187 days since her first kidding in 2006.
New Dawn’s Dam: ‘Grasshill New Day’ EX-92, an extremely productive and valuable doe who has already produced 11,740 kg (4.0% fat 3.1% protein) in her first 3 lactations. During that time ‘New Day’ has milked 2699 days straight through (4.3 kg/day) with no dry period between, while at the same time giving birth 3 times to 6 kids.
New Dawn’s Sire: ‘Grasshill Sheik Warranty’ VG-88. This buck is the son of ‘Grasshill Dynamo Whim’ (305 day production: 1779 kg 4.2% fat 3.0% protein) from dam ‘Wendalyn’ VG-88 (lifetime production: 13,910 kg).
Warranty’s sire ‘Sheik’ EX-95 is one of Grasshill’s best bucks overall. Scored 2nd highest in Canada for conformation, and identified Homozygous for scrapie resistance and Heterozygous for Casein A, ‘Sheik’ is transmitting superior conformation and especially high protein to his offspring. these should be excellent credentials to complement the high production and persistency traits in New Dawn’s pedigree coming from his dam ‘New Day’ and granddam ‘Nadia’ (both EX-92).
Sire Selection Recommendations for ‘New Dawn’:
This is probably the best buck to improve Total Milk Production, Persistency, and the Functional Conformation necessary to achieve these production goals! To complement the high production and persistency traits in New Dawn’s pedigree coming from his dam ‘New Day’ and granddam ‘Nadia’ (both EX-92). ‘New Dawn’ also has the potential to transmit scrapie resistance.
