That's a Lot of Bull, Part III
The next bull on the list of Siobhan's suitors is Tama Titanium. He is owned by Bar None's Dexters. This link takes you to the page for their bulls.
Tama is homozygous for polled and is negative for the genetic problems that can affect Dexters. I have no information about his A2 milk status. He is very large for a Dexter, 47.5 inches at the hip at age 5.
Although he has much of what we're looking for in a bull, I'm quite concerned about breeding Siobhan to such a large bull for her first calf. And genes for A2 milk would definitely be a plus.
