“The best term to describe the Chicago daughters is “dairy strength”. There are few bulls that sire this combination of angularity and dairy character. Chicago does this consistently well. Many dairy producers with large herds desire this trait in their cattle because it adds to the longevity of their cattle in a very competitive environment. They have the desire to compete and withstand the stress of overcrowding” (by Gary Fassett-Nov 2008, Chicago Daughters Tour Report).
