    Thanks everyone for the input and pms. We had a medical situation with FIL and MIL doesn't drive so I've been a bit tied up for the past week. Life is just starting to return to normal.

    I have been pondering!! D a n g e r o u s!! ha!!

    Angie and cross bench/field breeders, what traits are you achieving using bench labradors in working/field dogs?
    A dog that is more structuarlly correct with brains, a sound temperament and good looks

    Angie, from memory and correct if I am wrong..you were once a dairy farmer. From my limited experience speaking to dairy farmers they may cross Jerseys and Friesians to obtain better quality and quantity.
    Yes I was,, Thank you for remembering. We didn't cross breed among the species. We stuck with strictly Holsteins. Cattle and hog genetics are far superior to what we do with horses and dogs. It's an agricultural industry. We had a company come out to "map" our herd and they would select bulls from their inventory specifically to compliment each cow. You usually had 3 options per cow. They could predict on any of their bulls the % of prepotency or repeatability their stud had in specific areas. Be it structure or milk/butter fat production.

    After you have a bench and AKC hunt test champion.....who do you breed to .........show or field?
    All depends... Are we talking a male CH/MH or a female CH/MH?

    Are there multiple generations of SH & MH?
    Within the CH/MH dog or bitch?? I'm not sure what you're asking.

    Speaking to the dairy cow question. A common reason to cross Jersey with Holstein (Friesian) is for calving ease in first calf heifers, using a Jersey bull on the Holsteins to get smaller calves. I can't say the crosses we had were all around better than the purebreds, but they did have higher butterfat in their milk than pure Holsteins.

    Whether a cross of show to field lines will be better quality than straight field or straight show depends entirely on your goals, what is quality to you?

    If you cross a CH/MH to a field line dog you will not normally end up with more CH/MHs, the field lines look too different, so if you are trying to get more Ch/MHs you usually stick to show lines.

    Multiple generation CH/MH pedigrees exist, not sure what you are asking exactly.

Unfortunately I never got to meet him because he was running a master test when I flew out to get Magic.

    I was totally bummed out but I understand when she decided to spay Pepper. I met Diggs a few times when Magic was a kid. Heck Magic actually met Diggs.

    I'd like to thank everyone for not turning this nasty about field and show. Both live in my house for those that have questioned thru pm. The yellow in my aviator is a Nitro son and the black is the Blades son.
