D125 Dill’s BF Diamond Rio D1533263
Rio has some of the finest genetics in the nation for showing and milk production. Rio’s dam is the 2013 ADGA Reserve National Champion Doe, SGCH/MCH Dill’s XM Keena 4*M 5-02 92 (EEEE). In addition to scoring EEEE three years in a row, Keena was on the 2015 Elite Doe List, ranking in the top 5% of milkers in the breed. Rio’s full sibling, SG Dill’s BF Free 5*M 4-03 92 (EEEE) placed 2nd, 2nd udder of 23 in the 2013 ADGA National Show. She is an 2016 Elite Doe, milking in the 96th Percentile. His other full sibling, SG Dill’s BF My Kinda Party 5*M 4-03 90 (VEEE) is also a 2016 Elite Doe, milking in the 95th Percentile.
Rio’s daughters have been successful in the show ring and as milkers. He has two SGCH daughters; a daughter SGCH Simple Pleasures DR Edens Edge 1*M, who is on the 2016 Elite Doe List (95th Percentile) and 2017 Elite Doe List (98th Percentile), and a daughter who has placed consistently high at three different ADGA Nationals. Eight of Rio’s daughters have been appraised with an average score of 84.8.
Rio’s offspring are expected to exhibit the following traits, ranked in order of likelihood: strength, stature that is within the allowable range for Nigerians, level rumps, tight foreudder attachments, wide rear udder arches, and plumb teats. Rio daughters in the Owlhaven herd have developed tightly attached udders with plumb teats that are easy to hand milk and have soft, pliable skin. ~ Marie-France Orillion, Ph.D.
