FAIR’s cow family has been developed over the years by Al & Mark Schmitt of Rice, MN. They have a closed herd and have not brought in any animals for many years, thus they have concentrated on making the correct matings on every generation in their barn. During one of my first visits to Ralma Holsteins, I can remember seeing JUROR Faith out in the heifer lot and she was an extremely deep open ribbed heifer with a tall dairy frame. She went right to work calving at 2-02 and making near 40,000 lbs. and setting a MN State fat record near 1700 lbs. of fat and over 1100 lbs. of protein.
With Al & Mark both feeling the same, they decided to breed JUROR Faith back to make another record. Make a record she did, nearly 48,000 lbs, over 2100 lbs. of fat and over 1400 lbs. of protein….plus she scored EX-91. The rest is history. According to the Holstein Association, JUROR Faith has 5 EX and 18 VG daughters.
The dam of FAIR was the result of purchased embryos by Farnear Holsteins, IA via Fly-Higher Holsteins, NY from Durham Frisky’s flush as a virgin heifer. Throne proved to be one of the best mating on Durham Frisky as it resulted in three VG and one GP female. FAIR has only one full sister that is scored VG-89. FAIR has a VG and a GP SHOTTLE sister plus a GP Marion sister and a GP JET STREAM sister. The MGD of FAIR, Durham Frisky, has two VG full sisters…Durham Fireball has 11 VG and one EX daughter while Durham Christmas Fudge 14 VG and 4 EX daughters.
Recent ABS graduate, 29HO13401 CHARIOT stems from this JUROR Faith family as well as the popular ABS SEXATION Bull, 52911993 FOCUS. Needless to say the JUROR Faith family is one of the best female cow families in North America and commands top dollar at elite sales around the world. Many of Faith’s daughters and granddaughters have sons standing at or contracted to ABS. As you walk through the Ralma herd you can pick out the Faith family members, they are the deep opened ribbed cows that spell milk with their dairy strength and their aggressive appetites.
FAIR will quickly be noticed for transmitting all the best type and production. These tall, long bodied, dairy daughters are true to form. FAIR daughters have high, wide rear udders with strong clefts, and exceptional fore udder attachments. They have adequate depth of rib and width throughout while tracking straight with sound legs and a steep heel. Protect for correctness of rump as they can have high pins and incorrect thurl placement.
With his low 6 Calving Ease, FAIR will be popular in the heifer and milking string to use on daughters sired by SHOTTLE, BOLTON, GARRISON, JAMMER and Z-DUKE.
