5 straws of Old World bucks
Here it is - a small handful of the Old World genetics we have and use. I have used Tarzan, Eggsorcist, and Big Dog from this group - I can speak for the quality of all of those straws, they all 3 produced pregnancies for us. Breeding Old World genetics is a specific taste and not for everyone but for people wanting a producing herd this is one of the fastest ways to add production capability as a whole.
Old World tends to add to the offspring traits we don't always see in Modern lines, specifically: frame size, not always meat and mass, thats Modern lines since breeders of yesteryear were not heavily feeding their herds - but the frame to lay that mass on, is frequently found in Old World lines.
Kidding is another trait I associate with older genetics in that I am VERY surprised when old world animals have a hard time kidding - the does from yesteryear HAD to produce, they did not have recips to do their jobs for them, their line was going to die off if it couldn't get babies out and functioning. I have seen does here with heavy old world blood place their mouths over newborns and suck the snot out of their faces to clear the airway. How do they know to do that? Who knows, but I've seen it frequently in many of the older lines. There is something to be said for having some females who can do their job without any human help.
These straws represent optional breedings that will return some of those production level traits in one generation.
