Elko is currently the #1 Saanen on the USDA Sire Summary AND he is positive for MILK, BUTTERFAT, AND PROTEIN. There are very few bucks that are positive in all three categories. If you look at his pedigree this is no surprise as he is from a tremendous doe line that produces show winners and Top Ten milk producers. His dam des Ruhigestelle Elowah 7*M was twice the #1 highest milking Saanen in the United States .

Elko's dam, Elowah milked:

Elowah’s Appraisal Score was 5-6 FS 90 (VEVE)

Elko’s Sire +*B Briarwinds Pharoh Talut was an ADGA National Premier Sire and has produced many Top Ten and GCH daughters. See four of Elko's Paternal sisters pictured below.

Basically, Elko’s pedigree is stacked on both the top and the bottom and the USDA has ranked him #1 based on his daughter’s performance in the milk parlor. If you are looking for PROVEN Saanen genetics for Milk, Butterfat, Protein and Show wins, Elko is the buck to use. We used Elko quite a bit this year and hope to have some nice Elko daughters in our milking herd soon.
