JERSEY

GREENWOOD BERRETTA DUNKIRK-et

   122J5090 Dunkirk made a great debut on our active Jersey list. A top ten PTI sire, he is the #2 Active Jersey for milk at +2324, #4 Active sire for protein at +70, and #1 of the breed for udder cleft at +2.4. A Berretta from an EX Duncan full sister to Dean, Duncan, and Derek, Dunkirk is siring wringing wet dairy cows with fantastic udders. They have deep, open, angled rib that spells milk. The Dunkirk daughter's udders are high and wide in the rear, snug in the fore udder, with great teat placement and tremendous udder quality. Expect the Dunkirks to have some set to the leg. 122H5090 Dunkirk is a great cross on the Malcolm, Glenwood, and Trader daughters, and other cows needing more milk, dairyness, and overall udder improvement.
