In 2014 our first dun colored calf was born. He was called PorcPrunus Karel. We were not aware he was dun and he wasn’t very special so he was steered. Looking back we know that his dam PorcPrunus Jeltje and his Sire: Mauhin Oakley (both black colored) carried the dun gene.
In 2018 our first female dun colored calf was born. Dam was Paulet, (grandsire Mauhin Oakley) and the sire was a bull (PorcPrunus Hendrik) born out of a import cow (Breoch Goldies Girl). We named this calf PorcPrunus Paulet.
In 2019 we started to test our sires by UC-Davis. So now we know exactly what color genes are in our new herd sires. But the untested are given below:
Herdsires for the past 15 years in our herd:
Herikehoeve Little Boy RED: very possible carrier of dun gene, daughter PorcPrunus Jeltje carries dun
Mauhin Oakley: Carries dun (Dun coloured son called PorcPrunus Karel)
Stuyvenberghof Poldark: 35 progeny, none dun
Wildhof Lukas: lots of progeny, none reds none dun
PorcPrunus Horus (son of Farao)
PorcPrunus Hendrik: carries dun and red
Vreugdenberg Bryan: could carry dun from sire (Woodmagic Hedgehog IV) or red from dam (Harron Lucky Florin) but test shows that he only has black genes to give to his progeny.
Vreugdenberg Enzo: Red colored bull. test results will come up soon.
