Gandalf’s ADGA Genetics Page

Gandalf is a tall, large-framed, and sharp buck who excels in feet and legs, smoothness of blending, body capacity, and strength of bone.  In his first and so-far only buck show he was Reserve Champion twice in tough Northwest competition.  Multiple herds have now used Gandalf and his kids have demonstrated great consistency in being tall, long, and growthy with superb dairy character and sharpness throughout.  We anticipate well-attached and capacious mammaries on his daughters much like we have come to expect from our Travis daughters—six of which are pictured below.  Gandalf’s littermate twin, GCH Barnowl Golden Compass 2*M quickly finished her star milk record and her championship at her new Kickapoo-Valley home winning 4xGCH and 3xBOB in 2010, including being Illinois State Fair 2010 Best of Breed.
