All the Big 5 right in the first 5 places of her pedigree - she is a rare jem of genetic structure, of which I do not know of one that exists in South Africa. The Big 5 walks the pastures in Markdale. Now, we will mate her to the Next Ten sire lines we have to use, oh, what fun!

A direct daughter of Haped, the power bull of South Africa . So, "H" sire lines on Kalger on Evan (Eve) on Ibbie (K Kerl) on on the "E" cows, then add the "P" cows behind Haped, you just know there is maternal power here - for these embryos, we then mated her back to the Bar 5 SA Benz 415L bull, who is mothered by Fiona. She sold as Lot 31 last April, but purchased by Paulo Marques of Brazil, May 20 kind of delayed shipment, so we cancelled the female sales, Paulo kept Mr. Powerful. So, we realized what we had and decided to keep her. You may now share in the potential of this female.

"Yes, for us in South Africa Eve was the starting point of some great cattle but I purchased Eve in 1975 in Germany for the first world congress in 1976 because she was a type of heifer that could represent Germany at a congress but also because she had a great dam in Ernte (and I am sure damline) behind her  - I don't know what happened to Ernte's other calves.  Interesting is that Eve is out of the then top MILK bull Perutz, a son of Prafekt.  Perutz was a frame score 3 (in Fleckvieh language a wither height of only 142cm) but we did not import a lot of semen because he had "too much milk".(Shows you milk Fleckvieh (only Fleckvieh) bulls can also breed beef - Eve's fathers daughters in app 1972 averaged 5700kg/4%  ).  His sire, a frame score 5, was a great bull who bred top hair quality animals and we imported a lot of his progeny.  Although many of them were too spotted for our liking.  Prafekt, bred something, what most breeders today don't understand or cannot see and that is ADEL (German) or nobility in English.  Many German breeders couldn't understand that some of our South African buyers walked in their barn and pointed out all the Prafekt progeny by looking at the animal's face and not on the paper.  Here I refer to head slightly dished between the eyes, prominent thick wrinkled skin around the eyes, with large placid expression eyes and especially the wide, oval and strong mussle which only the Simmentaler (and to a certain extend Brown Swiss) is known for.  What's that got to do with beef production?  Animal's with a quality head have quality written all over them - a pliable loose skin with short glossy hair which is so important in our part of the world and normally goes together with a fine to medium bone structure instead of these heavy bound frame 7+ elephants which is a down fall for any breed in Southern Africa."
