Bandolier Eston Durness 42B (#7147857) was bred in the Durness herd of Dr. Ben Mcleod at Spruce Grove, Alberta in 1970.   He was purchased by Bill Rishel for the Topp Hill herd in New York and went on to record 931 daughters.  42B sired the very popular Paramount Ambush 2172 (#10239760) who in turn sired 4733 daughters.  2172 is the Grandfather of Ambush 573 (#14578684) who sired not nearly enough daughters, sadly we have only 5 but they are very productive and highly regarded members of our herd.  These photos show how skilled the breeders were at selecting sires that transmit the genetic influence throughout their offspring.  Carefully selected sires of the past provide us with predictable, reliable seed stock today.  We respect their diligence and wisdom, and are privileged to benefit from their consistency.
