ACCOLADE is an impressively large-framed, angular, broken chamoise with wattles. His strengths begin in dairy strength with a long, strong bone pattern and openness of ribbing. In general appearance he has a long, level topline and beautiful rear legs. His littermate sister was 2nd place junior kid at the 2015 ADGA National Show, where his sire had the 2nd place Junior Get-of-Sire and his dam was 3rd/1st udder 3 year-old. With credentials like that it's no wonder we retained him for our own use!
ADELITE had the widest rear udder arch of any doe I have bred at the time (41 RUA, 43 RUH, 39 FU) and one of our best mammary systems. We plan to use ACCOLADE on does that we want to improve rear udder width & extend fore udders and increase length of body & general feminine dairyness.
ACCOLADE's first daughters all exhibit great length of body, levelness and angularity. At the 2017 ADGA National Show in Madison, Wisconsin his daughters MICROCHIP (1st place junior kid) and TEEMANT (1st place junior yearling) looked beautiful and TEEMANT was named the National Junior Champion over 112 Alpines! I have had several offers to purchase ACCOLADE but I feel that as a breeder, you really need to use your own bucks so we bred several does to him before letting him go to HARMODY ALPINES of Windsor, Colorado. At the 2019 ADGA National Show they had the 4th & 5th place Milking Yearlings sired by ACCOLADE and they are beautiful. Here's hoping for a Senior Get in Grand Island, Nebraska next year!
