I really like my Jeronimo daughters. They have a great temperament and are always early onto the platform. I think the Jeronimo daughters have the potential to develop into great cows.
Both the Jeronimo daughters calved at 24 months and have been milking over 100 days, they are currently averaging over 2kgM/S/day.
One daughter classified GP83 and the other GP84

I look to breed average stature Friesians with good components as we have a mixed herd. We run a commercial operation, so we need to breed profitable cows that are easy to milk.

I have used sexed semen to breed most of my replacements and I have used Sexcel® on both cows and heifers and this is where the line of SNAKEOILs have come from. My focus is on high BPI with functional type.
