What they say:
- A double digit calving ease sire for use on heifers, and highly positive on important traits of Calving Ease Maternal and Docility. His daughters are gaining attention for their deep rib, easy fleshing ability and beautiful udders – the cowman kind.
- Thunder daughters are finally gaining the attention they deserve; they are deep ribbed, easy fleshing, beautiful cows with nice udders – the kind any cowman appreciates.
- Thunder is an excellent mating on Continental-influenced females.
What Meckley Farms says:
- New sire in our AI lineup in 2015
- Thunder was chosen as an out-cross sire; bred to our Final Answer and In Focus daughters to retain their superb calving ease.
- Has not lived up to initial hype as “the next big outcross,” but still serves as an easy-calving, non-pedigree alternative.
