As a leading embryo transplant operation, Moreno Ranches routinely DNA tests upcoming donors in preparation for their future ET calves. In one of our recent groups of samples sent in to be DNA typed, we received some quite surprising news on our very own Moreno Ms. Lady Reba 112. While we had believed her sire to be #CIGSA Mr. 162/0, it turns out that Reba’s sire is actually the famed SRS Mr. Troubador 933.
Although we were surprised by this finding, we could not be more excited for Reba to carry on the impressive lineage of SRS Mr. Troubador 933. We have had tremendous success using Troubador in our A.I. and embryo transplant programs, and Reba is yet another example of his profound impact within the Brahman breed. Their accomplishments share many parallels, as both Reba and Troubador have been honored as National Grand Champions, International Reserve Grand Champions, and ABBA Show Cow/Bull of the Year.
Moreno Ranches is beyond blessed to have a female of the caliber of Moreno Ms. Lady Reba 112 carrying the M check brand. After recently producing her first natural calf, we cannot wait for Reba to enter embryo production in the coming months. With a genetic foundation that includes SRS Mr. Troubador 933, one of the breed’s most accomplished red Brahman sires, we know that the potential of Moreno Ms. Lady Reba 112’s future offspring is truly limitless.
