JOB’s story began in Ohio, where his grand dam, Jellybean was purchased by Gillette when she was 9 years old.  She was pregnant to Durham at the time and after arriving in Canada, she calved in January 2010 with JOB’s dam, Gillette-I Durham Jericho.  JOB’s maternal line is recognized for high scoring, high producing dams that transmit.  His three nearest dams are all excellent and are extremely high producing cows for many lactations.  Jericho has proven to be quite the brood cow with an Ex-93-2E Freelance, Ex-92-2E Allen, Ex-90 Buckeye, VG-86 Shottle, and VG-85 Goldwyn to date, with many more daughters to come. Well-known Goldwyn brothers to JOB and former #1 and #7 LPI bulls Jordan and Jerrick are the result of split embryos at Semex.  Luckily, JOB has tested negative to Brachyspina, with much of his family carrying the newly recognized recessive.

Daughters of JOB are well refined and dairy individuals with a cleaner and flatter bone structure.  The daughters have a great will to produce in any commercial environment.  They have shallow udders with strong fore udders attachments.  Also, they have very strong clefts with centrally placed teats.  The daughters are average in size and scale and have adequate width and depth throughout.  They show correct slope to their rump structures.  Moreover, they track well on their feet and legs and show some set to the leg.  Use JOB on stronger and broader cows that are straighter in the leg.

JOB will best fit daughters of BOLIVER, BURT, DUNDEE, GENEVA, GOLDROY, Goldwyn, Stormatic, and ROY.
