Linear Appraisal: +EV 84
This is a very nice little buckling that we just couldn’t help but retain. His dam Star is one of the nicest does in our herd, and we had been wanting a buckling out of her for a while. Neptune, has matured into a long and level buck with great general appearance. Like his dam, he has a nice strong head, and smooth blending of the neck and shoulders. We are very happy with his width and length of body. Nick combines some very nice Algedi and Castle Rock lines that bring high milk production and show potential! Nick’s offspring have looked very promising so far and we are excited to see more of his daughters freshen!
Nick scored V’s in Head, Rear Legs, and Back in linear appraisal this year 🙂
Unfortunately this nice buck just isn’t getting used enough to justify keeping him here. I own six of his half siblings and a daughter so I can only really pair him with a doe or two each year. His kids have always been very nice and inherit his dairy strength and strong head! I hope to keep another doe from him this year before sending him off to another herd. Price reduced.
