I think this board is in need of a thread in Tree of Knowledge regarding A2 status and opinions upon its importance, plus information on sires in various breeds, places where one can do testing, etc. Also, a general discussion thread regarding what it means to breed a cow who is not A2 to an A2 sire and so on.
I know this is a lot to ask, but perhaps someone knowledgeable can start a few thread with the intention of ultimately moving them to Tree of Knowledge?

Are you doing a specific forum search (each forum has its own 'search' button on it) or are you using the one up at the top of the page?
That one is more complicated (the one at the top of the page), I tell it to go back 700 days (like 2 years) and give me '50 results' threads. You have to realize we've had this particular forum since like 2004.....so sometimes that can be alot of days (years) when doing a search.
I used the latter, and got 50+ results.....not all on A2 info, but many were.
And being here soooo long, I just remember past converstations, so I pretty much already have an idea of where to look, so that helps. (I guess that's my 'secret weapon') HA!! Janene
