Naming pedigree heifers
« on: June 27, 2012, 12:38 »
We all want to get a good price for the stock we sell and i have found that a name that sort of clicks with the buyers- along with  good breeding of course- does help, it shouldn't but it does seem to. ::)

 My best sellers have had female name song titles for their pedigree name.

I've had a Maggie May, Ruby Tuesday, Lovely Rita, Elona Rigby. :)

Can anyone think of any more :) I need 2 for this years heifer calves :)

Brilliant argyllie :happy:

How did i not think of Billie Jean, Peggy Sue and Dear Prudence, all great :happy: Made a note of them all.  Not sure about Mustang Sally, might give the wrong impression :D

So might Runaround Sue,but you never know, i might get one that it suits. But on second thoughts I'd probably keep quiet about it :D
