Calista is named after my daughter in Heaven and still catches my eye every time I see her in the pasture. She's a perfect blend of being refined and dairy, while being wonderfully deep. The night before 2014 Appraisal Calista incurred an injury which prevented being scored and in 2015, she was no longer in milk. However, if you look at her pedigree you will note that both her sire (a Finished Champion in all 3 registries, a +S+Band an EEE91) and her dam line both have excellent show records and/or appraisal scores. Throughout her entire pedigree, there areNational Champions or producers thereof.
What I'm excited about is, besides being beautiful, Calista is carving her own niche in the National Milking Awards as well. She was AGS Top 10 in 2 categories for 2013 and a Silver JuJu Award winner for 2013 & 2014. Which, when Calista kidded triplets, she milked 4# on her first test, easily surpassing her production from 2013. In the latter part of her lactation, she had a whopping 9.9% BF & 7.3% Protein...which, if I had done a 1Day Test on her, she would've been BREED Leader in Protein and possibly BF. Calista is not only a sweetheart on the milk stand (a big plus), she has long teats, great orifices, all in all, wonderful milkability--(a bigger plus). She's a great mom and all her kids are not only stunning, but super friendly. To me, she's the total package.
