As you can see from above GARRETT comes from a very deep cow family. Mike and Karen Schiller are the breeders of GARRETT and milk about 100 cows near Freeport, MN. ABS Rep, Tom Foss calls this herd one of the truest milk herds in his area. GAMETIME is from this family and made the active line-up in April 2009. Mtoto Gift is an awesome cow who is still alive and was recently bred back to calve again. GARRETT has one VG full sister that has a JET STREAM son sampled at ABS and two DIGITAL sons who recently arrived at ABS. His maternal sisters include: EX Finley, EX-91 Throne, 86 RC Marshall, 85, 86 & 87 Throne, 85 Freelance, 85 Potter plus EX DETRIOT & 87 DETROIT. Gift and her sister were two of the first EX Mtoto daughters in the world and grace the ABS sign on the end of the barn. Gift has the following sisters: 83, 85, 88, 88 & EX Mtoto, EX Garter and 87 Titanic. Many of these cows have sons sampled at ABS. This is a deep cow family that has performed extremely well in many different herds around the world. 2009 will be an exciting year for this cow family as many bulls from different stems of this cow family will get proofs.
The GARRETT daughters will excel in any type of operation with their consistent type pattern. They are well balanced cows with plenty of width and strength throughout. The GARRETT daughters exhibit youthful udders with snug fore udder attachments and ideal teat placement. Their rear udders are high and wide with adequate udder cleft. GARRETT daughters tend to be slightly straight in the leg with a steep foot and very deep heel. They also have a slight slope to the rump. The GARRETT daughters are trouble-free animals that are calving easily, breeding back quickly, while milking well!
