The Conant Acres herd was classified on January 23rd with very exciting results. The older brood cows in the herd performed quite well as six animals were raised to EX-94, four were raised to EX-93 and three new cows received Excellent scores. Additionally, five cows reached 2E status and one cow was elevated to 3E.
Belcrawf Allen Cecilia 2E-93 (96 MS) arrived at Conant Acres over 10 years ago, yet her legacy continues today. She had five daughters in the herd, by Durham and Goldwyn, and they were all classified EX-95 or higher in the udder! The three daughters that remain in the herd are each classified EX-94. Her Braxton granddaughter received the maximum score of EX-92 as a three-year-old and her other granddaughters are classified VG-89 (Windbrook), VG-88 (Gameday) and VG-87 (Large, Prior) in their first lactation. The first great-granddaughter in the herd is a Topside that has been classified VG-89 as a two-year-old.
Maternal sisters from the Lustre family also did well, as Conant-Acres Aftrshk Lustre was raised to EX-94 (96 MS) and her sister, Conant-Acres Sid Lolipop classified EX-91 (92 MS) in her second lactation. Their dam is Ehrhardt Goldwyn Lucy-ET 2E-91, and the next dam is Idee Lustre 3E-95, Grand Champion at the Royal Winter Fair and Reserve All-World in 2002.
Several promising young cows in the herd achieved tremendous results with three VG-89 two-year olds (McCutchen, Windbrook, Topside), five classified VG-88 (2 McCutchen, Atwood, Windbrook, Goldwyn) and seven others that were scored Very Good.
Arethusa Outside Leslie EX-92, best known as the dam of 2012 Unanimous All-American and All-Canadian Milking Yearling R-E-W Happy Go Lucky EX-90, is having a tremendous impact on the herd. Her young Atwood daughter was classified VG-88, while a promising Gold Chip scored VG-87. Three exciting granddaughters by McCutchen were classified VG-89 @ 2-03, VG-88 @ 2-03 and VG-88 @ 2-01.
