Ocean View Genetics
You'll work with a very small group of cows and heifers doing regular chores like feeding and helping milk. Then your focus will be keeping animals washed and clipped and prepared for various shows or visitors. We also have a regular flushing and ultrasound reproductive program you'll be working with. This is an excellent chance to learn individual animal care with a high type and production herd in a small setting. Room and board is included...for more information contact us via facebook.
DON'T MISS OUT ON THIS FUTURE WITH A FOUNDATION
Ocean-View Atwood Sicily is ready to hit the sale ring. A J2 for this year carrying a Diamondback heifer calf! From EX-94 Damion Sassy - this heifer is backed by 13 gens EX or VG straight back to our foundation cow Burkgov Steps!
Ocean-View Atwood Sicily sells as Lot 37 tomorrow! Great chance at an own daughter of EX-94 Damion Sassy. She's a J2 for this year carrying a Diamondback heifer. We loved our Diamondbacks! Don't live in the US but would love to own an Ocean-View heifer from EX-94 Damion Sassy and bring embryos back home - let us know. We are now housing a select group of special individuals and she qualifies!
ONE MORE CHANCE to bid last...
In our sale this fall many attendees asked who the cow was with no sale number...the answer was EX-94 Damion Sassy! She's always been a favorite in our herd through the years and her daughters were favorites on sale day. While reading pedigrees at our sale Norm Nabholz, with his great eye for cattle, spotted Sassy's Atwood daughter. Sure enough Sicily headed home to West Union, but anyone that knows Norm...knows he doesn't like to milk cows...so this handpicked Jr 2 prospect is selling tomorrow at the Great Northern in the Spring Selections Sale.
OCEAN-VIEW ATWOOD SICILY is a J2 for this year and is due this summer with a Diamondback heifer calf! This heifer is backed by 13 Generations of EX & VG average over 90 points and she combines our Zandra and Sexation families!
For anyone interested - feel free to contact us about housing for this heifer. We'd be pleased to have her back in the barn with her EX-94 mother and EX-92 Braxton sister.

Bid last and put a Sparkle in your eye!
ADD A GLITTER TO YOUR EYE WITH SPARKLE
Ocean-View Sanchez Zandra sells as Lot 10. From the moment she hit the ground we've called her "Sparkle" if you've noticed for many years our cow families carried the same names OVER AND OVER. So when we moved to WI it became a problem to have 3 Zandras in the barn. So they all hive nicknames!
Zandra exemplifies balance breeding - a record leading milk cow with over 62,000M and since completing that record she scored EX-93. She will amaze you with her will to milk and the ease with which she does just that! She ran the meter over with 220 lbs of milk was Top 10 in her class, Production winner and a member of our Reserve-All-Wisconsin Best Three Females at WI State Show ALL in the same week!
