We have long admired this buck's dam, Gingham as
well as his granddam, Cotton, and we were thrilled to be able to add
this stunning guy to our herd.
Denim is extremely correct and flashy. He excels in general appearance
and dairy character and still shows tremendous width throughout.
Denims' dam, Gingham, is a beautiful doe, again
excelling in general appearance and mammary. She is tremendously level
over her topline with great body capacity and a stunning mammary,
following in her dam's hoofprints. Cotton also excels in general
appearance and mammary.
On his paternal side, Denim's granddam is
CH Autumn-Acres Sunny Day, another very strong doe in general appearance
and mammary. We would expect this buck to improve in both areas of
general appearance and mammary.
In 2015, Denim was 2X 1st place 2 year old and
2X RGCH buck at the Iowa Spring Classic. We are
extremely pleased with his first milkers fresh in 2015 and his 2015-16
kids. His daughter, Snickers, was 3rd place Senior Kid at the 2016
National Show. Finally, after 2 years of "issues" at linear appraisal,
we were able to get Denim appraised with a final score of 86...not bad
for a buck in full rut.
Although we have had limited milking daughters
out of this buck, his kids are the "fancy" kids in the barn....long,
tall, dairy with lots of body capacity. His are the kids that top the
shows....we are looking forward to freshening two very special daughters
this coming spring including our 3rd place Senior kid from Nationals
Denim will be used on various select does this fall.
