We were very excited when we purchased the only 3 embryos sold last year 
from this great Irish Whiskey Donor that originated from the Hainey/Vanhove program.
She produced a $30,000 bull for Sullivans.
We were fortunate enough that all 3 Monopoly embryos stuck and WOW you should see
the 3 Monopoly x Irish Whiskey calves we have from
this mating, they look incredible.  
Watch for her 2 steers and 1 market heifer in The 2017 Showman's Choice Sale .
