Behind the Name

  • Saltimbanco, like Corteo, is the name of one of Cirque du Soleil's major touring performances. Derived from Italian, saltimbanco means "to jump on a bench" and is a common reference for a street acrobat. Cirque producers describe the show as a celebration of life and the antidote to 20th century violence and despair.

Salti’s ADGA Genetics Page

Salti is a long, tall young buck that excels in dairy character and refinement of bone.  He now resides in a small, non-show herd, but while he was here was a handsome man to look at and was bred to just a couple does and threw some nice kids.  His dam Corteo was the 2011 Nebraska State and 2011 Minnesota State Champion!  She definitely is one of those classic level, stylish, dairy, and capacious white Tach Lach daughters.  As her new mom Megan Okeson puts it, this doe exhibits “dairy strength,” the unique balance to be very dairy and open, but strong and sturdy enough to be extremely productive for many, many years.
