Link to Manny’s Full Pedigree

We are so excited to be using Manny this fall.  He is owned in partnership with Pleasant Grove Alpines and was used on the majority of our does this fall. We have strongly admired the Windrush herd for years and are thrilled to be adding these genetics to our does. We hope to add the levelness, beautiful mammary systems, length of body and strong frame we have seen in his relatives and offspring.  Just a few of the accomplishments of Manny and his relatives are listed below:

Dam: Windrush Farms IRS Emily – 2nd place milking yearling 2010 Nat’l Show

Sire: Windrush Farms Wonder Blizzard: Sired two National Class winners, is a maternal brother to 2014 Nat’l Premier Sire Windrush Farms IRS Charmer, and well-known Windrush does SGCH Saffron, SGCH Nutmeg, and GCH Corriander. Blizzard also had the 1st place Sr. Get-of-Sire at the 2016 National Show

Maternal Grandsire: Iron Rod ET Sheriff, Nat’l Premier Sire

2016 Senior Herd Sire

Kara Kahl Art Thief

(DOB 4/17/2015)

2nd Place/2nd Place Udder 7+ Over Aged Doe, 2014 National Show

Dam: CH Kara Kahl Regard Arya EX EEVE 91
Dam’s Sire: Sunshine Rehma Regard
Dam’s Dam: Kara Kahl Xanto Arusha EX 90

We retained Art Thief  as we love the mammary system and strength of general appearance, particularly in feet and legs, of his dam Arya.  Unfortunately we lost Arya in July of 2016, but we felt she was one of our most balanced does and we see those characteristics in Art Thief as well.  We love the correct feet and legs,  as well as the width and levelness in Art Thief’s first kids.  His twin sister, Aryanna, placed 5th /3rd udder at the 2016 National Show.  Art Thief was leased in 2016 and is not bred to does in our herd this fall.  We are eager to freshen 2 daughters in the spring.

2016 Senior Herd Sire

Kara Kahl Argento

(DOB 4/26/2015)

Sire: Pleasant Grove Zen Wingding

Sire of 1st place/1st udder Alpine 2016 Milking Yearling

Dam: GCH Kara Kahl Saga Ajuja

EX VEEE 91
2012 and 2013 GCH and BOB MN State Fair, 6th place 4 yr old 2013 National Show

We jumped at the chance to get Argento back when we heard he was available this summer as he is a 3/4 brother to our 1st place/1st udder milking yearling, Akebono.  We have long admired his dam (Ajuja) for her mammary system, capacity, strength in pasterns and feet and legs as well as width of rump.  Her dam, Aware, has produced our strongest dam lines by having multiple daughters appraise 90 and/or earn their CH status.  This line has been especially consistent in mammary system, especially area of attachment.   Argento is heavily linebred on 4-time National Show Premier Alpine Sire, CH Pleasant Grove Super Saga. His pedigree includes multiple high-placing National Show does, including CH Pleasant Grove Saga Whimper (EX 92), SGCH Stardust Cordite Saba (EX 93), GCH Kara Kahl Sauvignon Aware (EX92).   We used him of 4 does this fall. Argento  was collected in November 2016 and semen is available

13882093_1276262029080789_153548149127135179_nSire: Marran Rose’s Remembrance

See information and pictures below

Dam: CH Pleasant Grove Zen Xercise
EX VEEE 91
2015 GCH and BOB MN State Fair, 3rd/3rd Yearling Udder – 2012 National Show

We retained Xuberant this fall as we love the mammary and correctness of his dam, and the power and dairy strength in his sire.  The fact that his pedigree includes CH Nodaway SGG Rayla’s Rapture, 2013 Reserve National Champion, and SGCH Sunshine Rehma Regard, 1998 National Best Udder, who are two of the strongest dam lines we have seen, makes us even more excited to use him.  Also in his pedigree, is 4-time Premier National Alpine Sire,  GCH Pleasant Grove Super Saga and SGCH Stardust Cordite Saba  EX -EEEE 93, a two-time National class winner and one of the most influential does in the Pleasant Grove herd.  Xuberant is an extremely correct, strong buckling and will be used on one or two of our doe kids.  He has been bred to 3 does this fall and collected.

Link to Rememberance Full Pedigree

We greatly admired his dam, Rose, for her exceptionally level topline, beautiful mammary and strong front end.  We see these same qualities in Rememberance.  We are very excited to incorporate the Rapture “R” line into our herd, as it has been such a tremendously strong dam line.  On the sire’s side, Sunshine Rehma Regard threw very strongly attached mammary systems, dairy strength and milk, as many of Rehma’s sons did throughout the country.  We have retained two daughters (of only 3 born) and a son of Remembrance for our breeding program.

At Right, Assassin’s Sire:  GCH Windrush Farms IRS Charmer – 4-06 89 (VEV)

Assassin’s pedigree contains some of the strongest representatives of French Alpine genetics.  We have long admired Anzella for her beautiful general appearance, tremendous style, and longevity.  Charmer was the Premier Sire at 2014 National Show and has sired some very fancy offspring including GCH PJ-Baileys’ Charmer Apphia, a full sister to Assassin.  The first milking daughters we have seen in other midwest herds are very promising with lovely mammary systems. We are looking forward to freshening three yearlings in the spring!  We thank Pleasant Grove Dairy for the opportunity to lease Assassin last year.

Longitude – Fall 2012


 Longitude’s Dam:  CH Pleasant-Grove SSO Length, 2011 Reserve National Champion

We greatly admired Length for her strong, long, and correct frame, and her beautiful mammary system.  We see a lot of potential in our Amen daughter, A & W, and we see the sire’s side of Longitude’s pedigree as complementing our genetics well.

 Longitude is the sire of Arugula.  We purchased 5 straws of Longitude and plan to use him again in the future.

1st Place Senior-Get-of-Sire, 2013 National Show

We bought 5 more straws of Saga this year after watching our Saga daughter, Ajuja, mature into a lovely, competitive doe. We were pleased that she could be a part of the 1st place Senior Get, a win that truly demonstrates the lasting influence this buck has had on the Alpine breed.  Saga is increasingly in the background of many of our Alpine pedigrees.
