Linear Appraisal History
2017 01-06: V+V 86
2018 02-04 VEE 87 – E’s in Back and Rump
Whizzer is my attempt to bring at some popular show genetics and type, without compromising production. His dam, SG Sunrising RZ Wyvalliea 2*M easily earned her SG status on her first lactation. As a 2 year old she scored EEVE 90. Her milk test data is slightly skewed negatively due to being milked 1x per day or dried up after kids are weaned and if she is not on the show string. Quality of life for the herd owner is important and doesn’t always include milking. 🙂
His full sister from 2015, Sunrising Charmer Wyvee, was 3rd place Jr yearling at 2016 ADGA Nationals. His littermate sister, Sunrising Charmer Wyvee Too was a Coloroma sale kid at 2016 nationals. See her picture for the sale HERE (link to facebook picture)
Whizzer has several kids out there in other herds. I’d love to keep more if I could, but must keep the herd small. That being said, I DID keep one 2017 daughter, Caprice Acres Irish Red, who I think is very promising. Looking forward to her 2019 lactation to see what kind of udders Whizzer puts on his daughters. 🙂 I’m hoping to get some pictures of other daughters in other herds as well.

Sire : GCH Windrush Farms IRS Charmer +*B
Whizzer’s sire, Charmer
Charmer was owned by Sunrise Farm in NC until his death. Two-time Premier sire (2014, 2016), 4 GCH daughters, 1 CH daughter. He’s also a 2nd generation premier sire, with his father Sheriff also having this honor.
As of early 2019, Charmer has 33 dau on test, avg # of lactations on test is 1.82, and they have a respectable average of 2382lbs, 89lbs fat (3.7%) , 73lbs prot (3.1%). Avg LA score out of 73 appraisals: 85.4. He has 1 SGCH offspring, 7 GCH offspring, and 5 CH offspring.
Dam: SG Sunrising RZ Wyvallia 2*M
01-03 VV+V 86 – E’s in back, rump, and front legs
02-01 EEVE 90 – E’s in rump and udder texture
Her yearling FF linear score is quite respectable. She easily earned her SG as a yearling, and she looks to have a productive career ahead of her if you consider her dam’s production and her sire’s influence. Will be interesting to see the DHIR info as she progresses through the lactation. She placed 7th in class as Jr at ADGA Natl show, shown only once as FF and placed 1st. Her 2 year old lactation was quite impressive, though slowed a bit when she was switched to once a day milking.
