Bringing back the art of breeding!
We think it is time that the art of breeding cows is brought back to the breeders.
Selecting for beautiful functional type, combined with a balance of production and health traits to produce the next generation of long lasting cows.
What we're about...
Blondin Sires Inc. is owned by Simon Lalande, Kim Cote and Dann Brady. Three friends that share the same passion for beautiful cows, deep pedigrees, the love of the show ring and the technology of genomics.
Our passion for breeding and working with great cows hasn’t changed. Over the past few years the rush of genetics has overshadowed the true art of breeding great cows. We decided it was time to put the emphasis back on great type and deep pedigrees combined with production, health & fertility and bringing in new technologies such as genomics.
We plan to sample 5 - 7 new bulls per year that combine high genomic type with balanced production and health and fertility.
Our goal will be to share this experience with you, the breeders. As we go in search of these unique and special bulls we look to showcase the families and cows behind them. Tell their stories and follow them as they develop.
We hope you join us on this journey...enjoy the ride!
