Healthy Diet Demands Dairy Daily

Monday, February 18th, 2008

The role of dairy foods is more crucial than ever as most Americans today are not getting enough calcium in their daily diets, putting them at risk for disease.

* Nearly 9 out of 10 teenage girls fail to get enough calcium in their diets.

* Almost 7 out of 10 teenage boys don’t meet daily calcium recommendations.

*About three-fourths of Americans (or about 75% do not get enough clacium in their diets).

Kids are in a calcium crisis- they need more milk more often. No matter what your age, the calcium that comes from milk and dairy products is an essential part of promoting good health as well as good bone development and maintenance.

Red and White Holsteins

Thursday, February 14th, 2008

Red and White Holsteins have a recessive gene for hair color. The traditional color for holsteins is black and white. In order to get a Red and White Holstein calf, a red hair color gene must be given by both the sire and the dam. 75% of the world’s dairy cows are Red and White in color, although they are not all purbreed holsteins. Red and White Holsteins are gaining popularity in the United States where about 90% of the dairy cattle are Holsteins. Recently, there have been several popular sires that the Regisered Holstein Breeders have used that are Red and White Holsteins or Red Carrier Sires.

Some of those most popular bulls that are Red and White Holsteins or Red Carriers are Ja-Bob Jordan-Red, Kinglea Leader RC, Markwell Kite RC, Pursuit September Storm RC, Brookknook Milestone Red, STBVQ Rubens RC, Ladino Park Talent RC, Indiahead Red Marker RC, KHW Kite Advent Red, and Renown Factor RC.Â

 The Red and White Holsteins will have a huge growth in numbers over the next few years in the US and in the World.

Braedale Goldwyn is price at $130 and is very hard to find any semen. Red and White Breeders can get 2 RC Goldwyn sons at Wilonna Sires. www.wilonnasires.com I heard that Braedale Goldwyn had an Allen brother that got a good proof?

Bull proofs Highlites

Picston Shottle is #1 TPI bull. He added almost 800 dtrs. 17% of the total dtrs. or 175 are in the US. His US dtrs. average 82.4 actual on classifacation and age adjust to 85.8—Wow— The bad news is that he is housed in Great Britian and with the Foot and Mouth issue there, Semen will not come to the US for some time. Look for a really good Picton Shottle son.
