N.B.  Listed below are some of the sires of our bucks born 2009.  All of these sires have been carefully selected for what we feel is the best type and production we have to offer …

both total production and high components are considered.

With a few exceptions, most of these Herdsires are In Use Here & Not Available For Sale

… Following this list, some of our Available Sires are listed …
Check with us for



Lad:  An 'Excellent' grandson of Tara (VG-89, EX mammary, 2430 kg  4.7f  3.8p) and Lady (EX overall & mammary, 2471 kg 3.7f  3.2p), this buck is already proving that he can leave both Good Type & Good Production.
9 Lad daughters have now completed 305 day records at Grasshill. Kidding at an average age of 12.2 months, their average 305 day production was 1390 kg with components  4.0% fat, and 3.4% protein for average BCA values of 302-351-345.
As for type, this production is coming from good udders..
Lad's daughters already classified in their first & second lactation have all scored VG.

A limited number of Lad sons and grandsons are available for sale.


Nighthawk and Nightrider:                        (Nighthawk has been SOLD)

 full brothers from a pedigree with high production on each side.  The dam Naomi is a long, tall, level doe with 1288 kg 4.0f  3.8p in 305 days from just one side of the udder  (she had a bad case of mastitis before kidding the first time.. this was strictly a management problem). 
The 2nd dam had 1871 kg, and both were scored VG-89.

The sire of these bucks ‘Trailblazer’ combines 2 of our best families for production with records over 2000 kg on both sides…his dam’s last record (Tara) was 2430 kg 4.7f  3.8p.  Both this doe and the paternal dam of Trailblazer have milked straight through on at least one occasion, because we couldn’t get them dry before kidding the next time.
(Trailblazer’s sire had an EX dam who averaged over 2000 kg with no dry period between)

These are nice bucks with lots of body capacity.     


Diego:  High production and component, EX does on each side of the pedigree. 

Stylish dam Dorothy EX has 3 prior completed records with milk up to 1975 kg (305d),
to 4.7f   3.3p. Her last 305 day record is 1869 kg  4.2f  3.2p.

Sire’s dam Sweet Pea EX:  a 100% sister to Tara with 4yr6m 341d:  1961 kg  4.5f  3.5p.

Naomi (mentioned above) is also further back on the sire’s side.

This is a very well-made buck with good feet and legs.


Dynamo:  Dorothy (EX) x  Lad.

Lots of high production and component potential on both sides of this pedigree (see info for Dorothy and Lad above).
Dynamo’s offspring are also showing  a lot of dairyness and style.


Dynamite:  Dare (VG-89, EX mammary, super udder)  x  Dynamo (above).           -  SOLD

Although not huge, this Dynamo son is very well-balanced like his dam ‘Dare’, an average-sized doe with much greater than average type and production…  2yr7m 305d: 2461 kg  3.7f  3.1p.

Dare’s dam:  EX overall & EX mammary


Knight Prince:  A dairy, long, well-made buck from a VG doe with 1804 kg 4.8f  3.2p (in 305 days). 
This doe is a granddaughter of an EX well-known show doe who also produced well ‘Fantastic’.

The maternal sister of Prince: VG-89 overall, EX mammary, 2yr11m 305d: 2295 kg 4.01f  3.01p

The sire ‘Knight’ is from the Naomi doe above and the sire of Trailblazer (info above)


Detonator:                                                Available for Sale? 

One of our younger bucks from 2008, Detonator is not huge for his age, but is a very well-made son from ‘Knight’ daughter ‘Delilah’ and sire ‘Dynamo’ (info above).      
Delilah not only has good conformation, she also milks well…. 1yr3m 354d:  2067 kg  3.8f  3.3p


Tribute:  Named out of a growing respect for his dam Tara  (VG-89, EX mammary) whose
last 305day record is 2430 kg 4.7f  3.8p.

The sire of Tribute is Dynamo, from the same EX dam as Diego (above) i.e. Dorothy.

Dynamo’s sire is Lad, grandson of Lady EX (2471 kg 3.7f  3.2p) and paternal grandson of Tara. 
The dam of Lad is ‘Lass’, VG-89 3yr2m 305d: 2194kg  3.65f  3.1p.

Lad’s first 9 daughters to complete 305 day records (at an average freshening age of 12.2 mo) have averaged 1390 kg 4.0f  3.4p for an average BCA % of 302milk, 351fat, 345 protein. 
Certainly a tremendous production and component potential in this dairy well-made buck.  He is leaving large, exceptionally strong, well-made kids.


Laredo:   ‘Lass’ x ‘Trendsetter’  .. a grandson of Lady EX 2471 kg and Tara (2430 kg 4.7f  3.8p)

This buck is a maternal brother to Lad, from dam ‘Lass’ (VG-89 3yr2m305d:2194 kg  3.65f  3.1p).

His sire is a maternal brother to Lad’s sire, and full brother to ‘Trailblazer’ (all are ‘Tara’ sons).

He has lots of power and potential for both conformation and production.


Sunrise:  a long level well-made buck from Trailblazer (info above) and an EX doe with 1626 kg 3.3f  3.1p
and one of the nicest udders and best conformations we’ve ever had in our herd.


Corporal:  born April 26, 2007.  ‘Copper’ x  ‘Canuck’.                    SOLD

This is a buck we originally kept for our own use on account of  the high milk production on both sides of his pedigree (dam: 2155 kg  3.1f  3.0p, 2nd dam: 1901 kg  4.2f  3.3p), also because of the strong conformation displayed by his dam which has carried through to Corporal.

Canuck’s sire:‘Champ  (his dam  EX,  2074 kg  3.8f  2.9p;
his full sister VG-88  EX mammary, 2459 kg 3.3f  3.3p).
Canuck’s dam:  VG, 1804 kg  4.8f  3.2p

Canuck’s maternal sister is one of our best all-round does, classified VG-89 EX mammary (still too young to score EX overall) with 2yr11m 305d:  2215 kg  3.7f  3.3p.


Shanaghan:  born Feb 19, 2008.                             -  SOLD

A buck we originally planned to use as a herdsire, but didn’t have as much use for due to the similarity in bloodlines with many of our does.
Great potential though coming from his dam Sweet Pea EX (341d: 1961 kg  4.5f  3.5p) and sire Shenanigan (his dam a maternal sister of Lady EX 2471 kg).  Sweet Pea is also Tara’s 100% sister (2430 kg  4.7f   3.8p).


Buckaroo:  born June 29, 2008.   ‘Bluebell’ x ‘Target Nova’.  

A younger buck we kept from 2008 from one of our first-freshening ‘Lad’ daughters – a doe with nice conformation, good udder, and 1yr2m 325d:  1528 kg  4.1f  3.4p.

The sire is a son of Naomi (Nightrider’s dam) and the full brother to Trailblazer (Tara’s son).

‘Buckaroo’ has lots of body capacity and production potential… it will be interesting to see what this Lad grandson can do.


Navigator:  born April 8, 2008.                        -  SOLD

A tall, stylish Trendsetter son from a stylish VG-89 daughter of Naomi (Nightrider’s dam).

Born:  March 21, 2009

Crissy:  2yr9m 625d:  2186 kg  3.8f  3.5p  (milked straight through)

She’s a very strong doe with high protein.

The buck is a long tall buck for his age.  He might ‘drop off’ a bit in the rump now, but his sire and dam are both very level, so this could just be a stage he’s at that will change.


Jazz x Sunrise:  #139

Dam:  A 'Lad' daughter, VG-87 overall, VG-89 mammary.

Just milking in her first lactation

Born March 24, 2009

Dare’s dam:  EX overall & EX mammary

#146 is not huge,  #147 is larger but this buck also has a large set of horn scurs that we 'missed' .

These bucks probably won't sire 'huge' offspring, but they should have great genetic potential for type & production.
