Four Polled Genetic Opportunities in AJCA National Heifer Sale

The highlights of the 2013 AJCA National Heifer Sale, presented by co-chairmen John Boer
and Alex Steer in the sale catalog, note the presence of polled genetics in this offering of
genomic-tested heifers, and remind breeders that funds raised by this annual event support
the many youth program activities for Jersey juniors managed by AJCA. Three polled heifers
are selling, and one additional heifer in the sale is confirmed pregnant to a polled bull. In lot
number order, these four consignments are:

Lot 29 – Cal-Mart Critic Perie 5958-P, JH1F, GJPI 244, is ranked #1 on the AJCA GJPI Polled
Females list for June 2013. Born in September 2012, she sells open, with AI interest from four
different AI organizations. Her dam’s maternal cow family has been bred at Cal-Mart for the
past twenty years, building on a purchase from the Beachy herd in Kansas, where the direct
maternal line had been bred since at least the 1950’s. Sired by Schultz Legal Critic-P, she is
consigned by Martin Dairy LLC of Tillamook, Oregon – 503.815.3560.

Lot 36 – Last Chance Critic Maytag-P-ET, JH1F, GJPI 179 sells carrying an AI contract with
Jerseyland Sires and AI interest expressed by four additional AI organizations. Her full
brother Last Chance Critic Mayday-ET is available from Alta Genetics. Her dam’s cow
family came to the herd of her consignor from the Da-Vew herd of Maribel, Wisconsin in the
past decade; having been bred in Wisconsin and Illinois herds as far back as the 1950’s. Sired
by Schultz Legal Critic-P, she is consigned by Bob & Darlene Winter of Chetek, Wisconsin –

Lot 40 - Hillview Louie Katiki-P, JH1F, GJPI 186 ranks 26th in the nation on the AJCA GJPI
Polled Females List for June 2013; her dam is the highest-ranked milking female on that list.
“Katiki-P” sells carrying an AI contract with Jerseyland Sires and AI interest expressed by
five additional AI organizations. Her dam was bred in the Hillview herd, with the next dam
back having been acquired from a breeder in Massachusetts; the cow family traces its direct
maternal lineage in New England herds back to the 1950’s. Sired by Tollenaars Impuls Louie
260-ET, she is consigned by Chris & Cheryl Sorenson of Hillview Farms, Pine River,
Wisconsin – 920.987.5495.

Lot 56 – Orth-Berrys Impuls Dahlia, JH1F, GJPI 179 sells confirmed pregnant to Her-Man
Eclipes Master-P, JH1F (7JE1203), with AI interest expressed by Semex. Consigned to this
sale by the Berry College – Orthridge Farms partnership, her dam’s direct maternal line has
been bred in the Berry College herd for nine bovine generations, arising from a purchase at
the Blanton Farms Dispersal in 1971. The direct maternal lineage was bred at Blanton Farms,
Shelby, North Carolina back to the late 1950’s, when it came to that herd from the herd of Ray
Mayne, Washington, North Carolina, in whose ownership the line had been bred since 1918.
She is sired by ISDK Q Impuls. Interested parties should contact Derek Orth of Orthridge
Jerseys, Lancaster, Wisconsin – 608.778.9049.
