Maternal traits are heritable. Our girls are great moms, several are champions, others have produced champions, some are just great production animals. Reliable, readable girls make our lives as breeders a lot easier. Easy breeding, easy birthing great milking moms are worth their weight in gold and most pass those qualities on to their daughters. We only have 3 girls left but all three are very nice - a producer of champions, a 2 time champion and the daughter of champions - lots of potential in this little group!
