Now sires defiantly get the best you can afford! If you are trying to improve your herd this will be the fastest, easiest and cheapest way to get up to what you are wanting. That is something I have been dead set on and will always be set on. For me every doe I have out there has qualities besides physical qualities that I am wanting in my herd. Hardy, parasite resistance, good attentive mothers, high ADG without pouring feed to them, good hooves that I don’t have to trim but once a year. I would rather keep a doe kid that I have spent years breeding for those other qualities then sell everything off and go for just the physical qualities and gamble on the other things that I find important. I have really reached the point where I’m not buying does any more and if I do then they have to be more then just high quality and at a good enough deal that if she ends up being less then I want I can make my money back after her first kidding and the feed I put into her to find out she’s not what I really wanted after all.
