There is always one heifer that is tougher to part with than all the others, and this year it is ‘Whitney’.  Whitney is the only daughter we have of Brock Waterloo (one of the high-selling open heifers at the 2009 Equation Sale), and is exactly what we strive to produce in our polled females: loads of volume and capacity, while still retaining neck extension and femininity, to form a complete and balanced female.  We are quite happy with all of our Pharao progeny, and Whitney is no exception – to date they have all exhibited tremendous spring of rib.  Bred to Dora Lee Eclipse, Whitney should have a long future as a front end female.
