Marran Russian Reconnaissance
RECON is our new junior herdsire from Mary & Randy Adamson's Wisconsin MARRAN dairy. While looking for something new to take our breeding program forward, I was impressed with a produce of dam group class that I judged at the 2015 Minnesota State Fair. It was ROULETTE's winning produce that were the first place milking yearling (Journey) & 2 year-olds (Ryleigh). They both had the rumps and loin width that I was looking for while sacrificing nothing in front ends and mammary strengths. When they said they were going to repeat the RYLEIGH breeding, that was all I needed to place a deposit.
When you look at his pedigree listed above, it has changed and he is not a full sister to RYLEIGH afterall. Instead, he is much more related to our doe-lines than anticipated being a YUKON JACK grandson and his SDS is the littermate brother to SYNERGY...so no outcross buck for us to use for the time being :-(
We strongly encourage & advocate for all registered bucks to be DNA typed. Innocent mistakes happen and this is NOT written to be negative in any way towards RECON's breeders...I just really wanted a ROCHESTER son instead of a buck so closely related to ACCOLADE who is in our current breeding program (and 2 other buck kids that we have already ordered for the future)...it's an expensive lesson when purchasing outside stock.
