This photo shows "Luzi" in the summer of 2014 , 16 years old and just a few hours away from calving.

Luzi, her real name is actually Mack Ebonys Choice, a Waddles Clear Choice out of Roseview Ebony.

We bought her as a yearling heifer from MacKinnons/ McCallums for the girls to show as a 4H project.Paul later admitted being worried about Anna showing Luzi, because his boys had tried to halter train her but had given up. And yes...Luzi was  a handful showing! She could present herself picture perfect, but if she decided it was time to quit, that is what she would the ring or not.

In 2002 she won Reserve Champion at the Royal with her calf at site. She also produced the 2002 highest performance BIO bull, "Bennville Luzius".

Luzi's offspring has shown tremendous growth.In the finishing barn they always finished about 4 weeks ahead of the rest of the group. We also sold a number of outstanding herdsires out of that family through the years and used some of her sons in our program. Checking pedigrees you will find Bennville  Norbert  and Bennville Rascal in some of our best cows.

                                                     MARY FAMILY

Ultimate Poll Mary ....we picked her many years ago out of the Belldoon herd.

 Going back to Hayard Poll Xact on the sire line  out of Fairlea Mary (Nordic Nille) , this cow had a tremendous impact on our herd.Mary herself is long gone but her offspring is doing it over and over again for us .

Powerful  sound structure,easy fleshing, deep bodied, good udder and very mild tempered, that's what we like the "Mary's " for.

Licorice Family

 shown here is the foundation cow to that family, Licorice 10L , a Denison Poll Gifted daughter with deep roots into the   famous Cressman herd, going back to Cressman Birthright / Nordic Lerte family.

This family has been very generous to us , producing many outstanding herdsires through the years, most of them ending up as high sale lots at the PIC.
