She is the donor dam of TLC Zip Code and TLC Zeronica. This female has impacted our herd more than any one individual.  We have built an entire herd around her. Flushing her to Meyer 734, Cowan's Ali, Draftpick and many more Fullblood sires.  She is a full sister to Northstar Vernon that produced a string of show cattle.  We flushed her for the second time to Cowan's Ali to get Zip and Zeronica.  They are half Maine and half Braunvieh.
