JOHNSTON BRANGUS

WE’VE ADDED A POWERHOUSE DONOR

WAT MISS GUARDIAN 404A

We have acquired this top shelf, revenue generating kind of Ultrablack donor in partnership with David Wood. We purchased her from Randy Schmidt in the 2019 GENETRUST Sale at Cavenders for many reasons, including she was bred in our program.

After quickly being identified by Randy and entering the donor pen, this female’s first flush to Three D produced $12,000, $9,500 and $8,000 open heifers as well as a $9,300 herd sire in addition to two other females who have since entered the donor pen at Schmidt Farms. Talk about a coming out party! A UB1 sired by Guardian and stemming back to our eye appealing 404 cow family, she’s quickly made a name for herself by passing on her tremendous performance and design, in a moderate framed, easy fleshing package. Averaging over 9 embryos on 6 flushes, she has shown the ability to consistently create, and more importantly produce a calf crop with a low cull rate and a highly desirable public appeal. Randy, along with the GENETRUST partners, saw the value early on in the Ultrablack program and have since been able to identify a number of sires and dams who are able to excel in consistently producing high quality UB1’s and UB2’s. Two of the most successful in this endeavor have resided at Schmidt Farms, with the first being Mack (McKellar Consensus) and the second being 404A. Because of her embryo producing ability and the extremely high-quality retention rate of her off- spring, sold her in her entirety, with the prime of her life ahead of her and a proven production record behind her.

She is safe to Brickhouse and will quickly be ready for embryo transfer thereafter and we are excited about her impact on our herd and the breed.
