We are excited to introduce Cedar View Pietro (aka Petey). I’ve been searching for a great buck to breed to our Oliver daughters—-We have reservations on a wonderful possibility in California—-but it didn’t work out for 2019. I love the breeder and am looking forward to 2020 with high hopes. In the meantime, after a TON of research—I (gladly) went back to our very dear friends (Bill & Deb Inman at Cedar View) and picked up this handsome little guy. You may remember, we were in a similar place in 2015 and the Lord led us to the Inmans where we purchased SG Cedar View Olivero +*B+*S. Pietro is not a total outcross—not even close. BUT, if I’m going to line breed—-even a little, its going to be Deb’s lines. I love the pedigree behind this guy. Almost everyone are Finished and either have super udders or have produced daughters with the same.
Petey’s dam, Livia, is an exceptionally beautiful young doe. In her 2019 LA, she scored VEEE90 with strong Dairy & Udder scores (Fore/Height/Width, Teat placement &length). Besides her obvious looks, she also is excellent in Milk Production. Her first four tests as a 2nd Freshener ranged from 4.2# to 5.7#. Her Production Evaluation is 93% which should definitely allow her the ranking of Superior Genetics (compiled 12/19) and if it goes up, she might make Elite Doe Status.
Livia was 1st place yearling & 1st place udder in class at the very competitive and highly acclaimed North American International Livestock Exposition (NAILE 2018). Then last month, she won Senior Grand, Best Of Breed and Best Udder in Breed at the Tennessee Valley Fair (9/2019)
Livia’s sire is Bambino ++*B —-has who has sired multiple Top 10s, (inclu Breed Leaders), Elite Does, and multiple LA scores of 90+, six of whom have won GCH/SG/SGCH —-In addition they have gone on to produce over a dozen Finished/SG/Elites/Top 10s, etc. Another notable trait about Bambino is his daughters tend to raise their production in the second half of their lactations, rather than leveling off or decreasing.
Livia’s dam line is just as strong—-GCH Cedar View Cassimiracola placed 9th in the Senior Kid class at the 2014 ADGA National Show, took JrGCH at SMDGA, and Finished the following year, along with 2x Best of Breed & Best Udder, and 1st place Dam & Daughter. She also was part of the Best Dairy Herd in TVA& I Fair, and the AOP at the 2016 NAILE. All as a 2 year old.
Both Livia’s Gdam and GGdam are also finished CHs with multiple Best of Breeds, Best Udders, & high LA scores, and Milking Awards. Cassimiracola’s dam (GCH Little Tots Estate Cassia 3*M EEEE92) had 4GCHs, 3 Best of Breeds, 2x Total Performer. Tragically, Cassia died during a C-Section, losing her quads as well.
Bambino is the sire of SGCH Cedar View Isabella 4*M EEEE 91, a truly exceptional doe. 3x Grand Champion Senior “All Other Purebred” at NAILE all 3 years that Nigerians could be shown (2016-2018)—-as well as Supreme Udder over all breeds in 2016. She’s been ADGA Elite Doe 5x 2015-2019. She was Breed Leader (#1) In ADGA Top 10 in 2016 (BF) and #2 in Production & Protein (2015)—-ADGA’s Top 10 in multiple categories (2015-2018). In total, Isabella has won 6x GCH, 4x BOB, 4x Best Udder, 1x Supreme Udder, 3x 1st place Dairy Herd, & 3x Get of sire, & 3x 1st place Senior Group of Three. Isabella is Oliver’s dam. So, line breeding on Bambino seems to be the one to do. Bambino’s sire, GCH, PGCH, CH Buffalo Clover Valentino ++*B has sired 14 Finished CH’s and a SG doe (our SG LTE Tiqvah VEEE91). His line bred daughters are stunning. So, I feel like we made a blessed decision. (You can see photos of Isabella and read more about her on Oliver’s page.)
Petey’s sire, Marciano, won his first GCH at the Missouri Buck show in 2017. Finishing as a 2 year old, he took 2x Senior Grand and 1x Best of Breed in the 2018 Missouri Buck Show. Grand Champion Junior Doe at the Sevier Co. Fair, 9/6/13
Marciano’s dam (Paenoia VVEE90) won Jr GCH, Sr GCH (in 2 shows), 1x Best of Breed, and Best Udder at the Ms State Fair. In addition, she was awarded, 2nd Best Udder at NAILE (2017).
Marciano’s sire Ceasario is a 3x GCH and 1x Best in Show. His daughter, Cedar View Bernadetta 5*M won 1x GCH and 1st Place Dam and Daughter. His daughter Cedar View Joleen, won Junior Grand in Tn and again at NAILE (2017) going on to win Supreme Junior doe over all over breeds.
Marciano’s paternal half-sister Cedar View Bernadetta 5*M won her Jr GCH, and was 1st Place Dam & Daughter with her dam (GCH Cassimiracola), but tragically passed away after kidding. Bernadetta and Livia are also maternal half-sister.
Ceasario's 2017 daughter Cedar View Joleen 5*M VEVE89, won Jr GCH as well as Jr GCH & Supreme Junior doe over all over breeds at NAILE 2017.
