TRIGGER hails from Larson Acres of Evansville, Wisconsin – a family owned dairy farm including six Larson families spanning five generations. TRIGGER’S dam, Boliver Tenise #5015, was contracted by ABS has a virgin heifer to SHOTTLE. She was one of several BOLIVER sisters and has developed into an outstanding individual. Boliver Tenise #5015 has impressive calving intervals (2-01, 3-03, 4-05, 5-04) and over 100,000 lifetime production. At 6 years and 9 months, she calved again in December of 2011.
TRIGGER is the complete package! This SHOTTLE x BOLIVER son is sure to please as an all around type and production improver. TRIGGER daughters excel in udder traits, with exceptional fore udder attachments, rear udders that are welded on with width throughout, and great depth of udder cleft and teat size. TRIGGER daughters are extremely mobile with a steep foot and moderate flex to the hock.
TRIGGER is a fun bull for the heifer pens. His profile predicts impressive management traits, pleasing udders, steep foot angle, and he will add width and strength. He should complement BOLTON and Goldwyn pedigrees, and can work nicely on daughters of BOULDER, GABE, GARRISON, GRANDMASTER, JAMMER, JUNIPER, LANGDON, MATSON, PENNYMAKER, and SANDY.
