Immunity+™ – What’s Known So Far

Thursday, September 7th, 2017

There is no substitute for good animal health. Without it all other goals (production, genetics or showring) have only a limited chance of success. How so you say?

Remember in the 50’s when Paint by Number sets allowed anyone to produce recognizable scenes using oil and brushes?  It smelled like art.  It used artist’s tools.  But, unfortunately, just simply following the numbers did not make the best artists? In a different way, the dairy industry loves reducing our industry to numbers!  Statistics.  Data.  […]

THE LIFE, ART and DAIRY LOVE of ARTIST ANDREA JORGENSEN

Tuesday, August 29th, 2017

Some might say that artist Andrea Jorgensen, of Webberville Michigan, is an overnight success.  You might agree, especially after hearing her say, “I didn’t start painting until the fall of 2015.” Since that time her paintings are drawing considerable attention and have given her the opportunity to build a career from commissioned pieces.

Is Milk’s Healthy Halo Trendy or Tarnished?

Thursday, August 24th, 2017

Canadians have long looked with jealousy, envy and/or admiration at the school milk program in the USA.  We think what a huge difference that could make to national production requirements. In the US that is 50 million milk drinkers. It often appears to us that this is a subsidy that isn’t acknowledged front and center […]

Jersey Sire Usage: What Bulls Are Breeders Actually Using

Thursday, August 3rd, 2017

Jersey breeders read about their breed’s top genetic sires, the popular show ring sires and the most promoted sires.

Breeding a legendary dairy sire isn’t automatic. It is not as simple as crossing the right sire with the right dam. However, although it isn’t easy, it does happen. In one of the most famous cases of all, that of Round Oak Rag Apple Elevation, it is somewhat surprising that the tremendous impact that was […]

When The Bullvine reviewed the recently announced HAUSA decision to revise their UDC, FLC and TPI genetic indexes, we decided to do go beyond simply reporting the changes that will be made in August to the formulae. The critical matter for Holstein breeders will be whether the new information will assist breeders in achieving their […]
