Bosdale's investment in the full sisters R-E-W Daz Bepretty and Daz Behappy has proven to be an excellent decision.

Behappy, on the other hand, produced 88,000 kg 5.3% BF in five lactations, and many of her offspring also achieved superior lactations.

tradition year after year.

illustrious show career which included being HM Intermediate Champion and HM Grand
