The Holstein USA classifier took a spin through Maine last week and found some new Excellent cows from prolific cow families at Brigeen Farms in Turner, ME!
Of the six new Excellent cows on the day, three are daughters of Brigeen Shottle Gigi EX-90 GMD, who is also the dam of Brigeen Supersire GIgi, now EX-91. Brigeen Aftershock Arian was raised to EX-91 and her Colt 45 sister raised to EX-92. Aftershock Arian’s flashy Connoisseur December calf sells in Syracuse April 5 in the NY Spring Select Sale!
The herd tallied 30 new Very Good cows, of which 14 were VG 2-year-olds! They included Supersire Gigi’s Monterey daughter, as well as a VG-86 Pety from the Cook Farm Fire Bell family.
