ROCKER is a dark, cou clair seven year-old with an impressive milking & show career. She is very eye-catching in general appearance as one of our largest, younger milkers (B1G) and has beautiful dairy strength style. She earned her first championship leg as a senior kid at the 2013 Idaho SYRINGA and two months later won her class and was named Reserve Junior ADGA National Champion in St. Paul, Minnesota! She finished the fair season undefeated and continued to grow well.
Her mammary system has impressive rear udder height (42) and pleasing shape. She placed 2nd/3rd udder at the Del Mar Fair and was part of our first place Dam & Daughter group paired with SGCH TELLURITE. At the Washington State Fair she was 1st/2nd udder (ANDORITE was 1st udder) to finish her yearling season when she became a 6th consecutive generation Superior Genetics (SG) award designee.
As a second freshener she was nearly undefeated in the two year-old class, winning RGCH at the Alpines International Specialty show (leg #2) and placing 2nd/3rd udder at the ADGA National Show. She finished her championship at the Wyoming State Fair in August with a champion win in the WDGA ring and placed behind her dam in Champion Challenge over 3 other Challengers, including ADELITE. She finished the season 1st/1st udder at the Washington State Fair. Best of all, she milked very well that year...just ONE pound short of a TOP TEN lactation in butterfat!
At age three, she was only shown at the Washington State Fair in late September where she was once again 1st/1st udder and she milked another quality lactation. At age four, she was 5th at the 2017 ADGA National Show where she won the High 305 Milk & Fat Awards as well as being named Alpine Total Performer! She had quads in 2018 and a difficult kidding so we gave her the year off from showing & dried her-up early to rest. After a couple of failed AI attempts in the fall of 2018, I took her to WSU for a therio consultation in 2019. We decided to give her more time and it was the right decision, she has gained more weight and seems to have normal cycles already in August. Fingers crossed for her AI in September! We are very impressed with her production records, already over 19,000# in 6 lactations. If improving milk production is your goal, consider this doe as a potential dam of your future herdsire.
