February 15, 2018: Unique Valleystream Genetics has updated their Facebook page. They will be showcasing their farm for the Jersey Canada AGM in Westlock, AB.
June 7, 2018: Unique Valleystream Genetics joins Cowsmo’s Breeder Tour! Unique is located about 90 minutes north of Edmonton, AB, in the hamlet of Rochester. The farm was started 27 years ago by Dave & Tracy Morey, who now operate the farm with their 2 children, Casey and Lee.
300 purebred Jerseys are milked at Unique, as well as purebred Holsteins and Brown Swiss. On average they also run approximately 300 head of young stock and raise breeding bulls for sale and their own use. Balanced cows in both type and production are the goal of the breeding program at the farm, ensuring that they have the most efficient cow without sacrificing longevity. Generally strong uddered bulls are selected with CFP’s of over 100kgs and strong health traits. A wide variety of sires have been used at Unique with names such as Chrome, Rufus, Matt, Joyride, Disco, Viceroy, Chive and Viral currently in the tank.
Some notable cow family the Moreys have worked with are:
* Avonlea Mischief’s Magnolia SUP EX-92-4E (2016 Canadian Cow of the Year)
An 11 Star Brood Cow, Magnolia has a notable amount of Show Ring accomplishments including Intermediate Champion at the Royal Winter Fair in 2006 as a Milking Yearling. Currently they have a significant number of Magnolia daughters and granddaugthers making a large impact in their herd including Redhot Matt Tesla, the #1 Confirmation Cow in Canada.
*Valleystream Remake Honey EX-92, 2011 Canadian Cow of the Year Nominee, is another notable cow family that they are continuing to work with. Honey came to the Moreys when they purchased the complete Valleystream Herd and moved them West from Ontario. The dam of Unique VS Habit, Honey has had several sons being drawn in Stud, and a grandson currently as Select. Honey now resides in Cross Plains Wisconsin where she is undergoing IVF.
*Par For Belle VG-85, held the top LPI spot in Canada for a record 4.5 years, continues her legacy with numerous influential offspring.
*Select Minister Elisa VG-87, another IVF cow located in Wisconsin, is the next up and coming cow family. With a large number of daughters on the ground so far, Elisa is proving to be a cow that has strong family genetics. With 5 of those daughters milking so far, the Moreys are excited to see how this cow family continues to develop in the future.
