Regel Katan Farm Charmer Mojo 2016 FS 88(VVV)
Mojo at LA, 2 y 5 m old (left) & breeding time 2015
We brought Mojo in as a youngster - from Regel Katan Farm in Ohio. This was a big gamble - his dam was a first-freshener - but his pedigree was great. And our gamble paid off!
- Mojo's dam is now SGCH Regel Katan Farm Ab Caana - with an udder that is udderly amazing (sorry :-). Caana earned Superior Genetics and her permanent championship by her third year. She appraised in 2015 at FS-EX90 VVEE.
- Mojo's sire is GCH Windrush Farms IRS Charmer - famous for his amazing toplines - and was the Premiere Alpine Sire at the 2014 ADGA National Show.
- Mojo was appraised in July this year - scoring Vs in all structural categories with a final score of VVVV 88 as a 2 y.o.
Regel Katan Farm LysanstoChill (new Jr. Herdsire) LA 2016 Young stock
Overall Very Good
This young buckling comes from Regel Katan Farm with a nice line of genetics, width and strength. We will use him on our Mojo daughters this Fall. We're eager to see what he can add to Mojo's great work.
Regel Katan Farm Kuiper Belt 2016 LA Young stock Overall Good Plus
Kuiper's sire IceMan is in the Young Sire Development program of ADGA - a very high honor - and we will try to help "prove" him by freshening his beautiful daughter in 2017.
SG Meadowwild M. Tzatziki 1*M - 2016 FS 86 (+V+V)
Productive and "Superior!"
- In 2015, Cheeky earned ADGA's Superior Genetics designation - meaning she places in the top 15% of the breed for a combination of scores derived from production and type.
- In her 2015 lactation, she produced 3369 pounds in 295 days - 60 of those days were once a day milking only! She is on DHIR again this year.
- Tzatziki was appraised in July of this year as +V+V 86 (that + in capacity i'm sure was due to her huge milk production - she just couldn't eat enough this summer and got pretty skinny on us until we started to add beet pulp to her milking rations) .
- We will breed Cheeky to Mojo again this Fall, most likely - more productive kiddos on the way in Spring 2017!
"Eclipse has left the building (barn)" for her new home at Echolight Farm in the UP. We have dibs on first doe kid.... fingers crossed.
SG Old Beach Styling Eclipse 1*M 2016 FS 88 (VEEE) - her pedigree is as pretty as she.
Eclipse is our showiest doe. Her third freshening udder is gorgeous.
- LA scores were good this year - with FS VEEE 88
- She has great Dairy Strength, and is wonderfully deep and wide .
- in November, 2015 she earned her Superior Genetics designation from ADGA as well!
- In her 2015 lactation, Eclipse earned her milk star, producing 2210 pounds of milk in 295 days (60 days of which were once a day milking) with an average of 4.3% Fat.
- Eclipse is staying here until she settles this Fall, will breed to Chill - and then she will move to the UP, but we have dibs on a doe kid!
MeadowWild Mojo Tzarina 2016 LA FS 84 (+++V)
Tzarina "Reenie" is the smallest of the Cheeky x Mojo 2015 triplets - but is Strong and healthy and appraised best of our young stock in 2015 and appraised well in LA July 22 of this year.
- Reenie is very productive! - She is small but her udder is a good improvement on her dam, Cheeky's, and foreudder very nice.
- Reenie was producing between 8 to 9 pounds in 24 hours at about 105 days in milk.
- Her buckling, Sovereign, will be Jr. Herdsire at Summer Solstice Farms in Indiana this Fall.
Kara Kahl Sinful Anisa 2016 FS 84 (++V+)
Anisa ("Ahni") is a gangbusters, all-out, grab life and live it big kind of Gal. She's flashy, and so very pretty.
- Ahni is wide and strong and has very good Dairy Strength, and was appraised as a milker in July with Very Good in legs, feet, rump and udder texture.
- Ahni had a beautiful doe kid, now sold, with Mojo this spring.
Meadowwild Mojo Channa Masala 2016 LA Good Plus overall with Very good in Dairy Character.
Channa is a beautifully trimmed chamoisee from Mojo and Korma. She will go to Chill this Fall - we are hoping for the high production of Korma with a better front attachment (no offense, Korma - your udder was very nice :-) haha) Channa is a good eater - but slower to mature than her two counterparts. But she will catch up.
