Oh, how neat. Nicole is interested in our thoughts about this.
She’s interested in our thoughts about the irrational belief that your DNA is special. . .
The irrational belief that you have special DNA, that your DNA is more valuable than other peoples’ DNA, and that your DNA means that your offspring are smarter, cuter, better, more valuable, amazing, intelligent, happy, well-rounded, kind, and of course the world needs many, many copies of your DNA because of its superior value.
That irrational belief.
These are just two examples. Every time Joe gets on camera or on a podcast, he blathers on about this, about how superior and fabulous his children are.
See what I mean? People just run out of words when they have to describe the marvelous DNA that Joe and Nicole Naugler have given to their kids.
This is my favorite, though.
That is how I would describe our bull calves. This is how we talk about them. Seriously. We talk about livestock like this. We breed and raise registered Jersey cattle. Livestock.
We look them over, those guys above, and we say, “I like the looks of that guy on the far right. He’s got lots of lean muscle and he’s extremely energetic and active. He’s developing nicely.”
When we have Frances bred, we choose a sire carefully. They look something like this. We make a choice based on how well we think his DNA will match up with Frances’ DNA.
This is the guy chosen as the sire of the Naugler livestock.
And that is actually a good photo of him, mostly because he’s much younger there and a good many pounds lighter.
Isn’t he just so impressive?
The dam and the sire. There they are.
Amazing, aren’t they?
We need more of their DNA floating about, don’t we? I say, breed ’em. Lots of them.
Oh wait. They already did. Here’s the whole herd.
