Ravenwood Madison

Ravenwood Madison

Ravenwood Madison   Reg #: 025017
Sex: Female   DOB: 2011-03-21
Sire: Circle H's Frederick ADCA 13691
Dam: Spring of Windy Acres

If you are  interested in improving both milking ability and udder conformation in your herd, this is your cow.  Her dam, Spring of Windy Acres, was a popular show cow in the Northwest, and undefeated in the udder class.  She was called "Spring the Wonder Cow."   You can see pictures of Spring at http://dextercattle.org/pedigreedb/ponyweb.cgi?horse=15280&HorseName=madison&Page=1&Sort=0.  Sadly, Spring died unexpected, having only produced 3 heifer calves, one of which went into an unregistered breeding program.  Spring was a tremendous milker and with that much milk comes a lot more stress on the udder's median suspensory ligament.  For this reason she was specifically bred to Circle H's Frederick, who is known to put very strong and tight median suspensory ligaments on his daughters.  The result was Raven wood Madison, and her udder is exactly as expected; truly one of the best udders in the breed, with a front udder attachment extending towards the navel, a level floor, even teat spacing, and strong median and rear udder suspension.  Madison will be available in late summer, after her calf is weaned. She is polled, black, and carries red. For those following the different beta casein genotypes, she is also homozygous A2.
