The Herd Bulls are predominately raised in our family's registered herds.
The balanced genetics offered by these herd bulls produce quality, marketable feeder Steers Replacement Heifers & Breds
An archived page of reference sires reflects the top-side lineage [Angus only] of our commercial cow herd. No Simmental sired females are kept for replacements - only the straight bred Angus go back into the herd.
BLACK SIMMENTALS COVERING THE COMMERCIAL HERD
Time to mix it up a bit! Beginning with the 2010 breeding season we have covered a random group of straightbred black angus cows with Black Simmental Bulls. The steers sired by the Black Simmental Bulls sell in October and the replacement quality females sell in April. We ventured into the Bred Heifer market with a super nice group of F1 crossbred females in 2012 ~ this top-cut of the crossbreds is now an annual offering of breds. The odd year we offer a set of straightbred black angus bred heifers also.
The black Simmental bulls are purchased from Boundary Ranch (our son and daughter-in-law).
___________ Walking Herd Bulls : Natural Service ___________
WALKING HERD SIRE: 35U was kept to cover our heifers and has been used on the cows most recently. He sires long, smooth calves with good performance, nice dispositions and big nuts. His dam is a front pasture kind of cow. Some of his calves have been in the eighties but built long and right, never had to assist one.
WALKING HERD SIRE: 92U has a lot of performance with a big foot and lots of testicle. His sire, TC Freedom has left exceptional females. His dam, 21L was sired by the Widespread bull who expressed a lot of muscle and performance. 21L was sold and flushed with embryos going to the UK.
WALKING HERD SIRE: Phenomenal performance in this up and coming sire out of our smallest framed Eileen cow whose Dam produced until 17 yrs of age with no TLC. A bull that displays thickness, volume, great scrotal developement, a WW ratio of 108, and a YW ratio of 120.
WALKING HERD SIRE: This young sire’s first set of bull calves finished with an avg. Yearling Ratio of 114 [Lifetime: 106]. His thickness, volume and width are giving his sons an above average spread from Birth to Yearling. Lost this guy in our commercial herd in 2012. His Mama raised the 2011 sale day high seller for us.
WALKING HERD SIRE: The Net Worth cattle are working well for us ~ easy fleshing yields the extra weight on sale day and the daughters in our purebred herd are 'producers'! His Dam showed up dry when she should have given us her 15th calf! The youngest producing daughter here is an Elite Dam.
WALKING HERD SIRE: 35R is a very stylish, good-footed bull; muscular, lots of nuts and an old style Angus head. His daughters producing now are smaller framed, like his mother, and you can’t beat their udder quality.
WALKING HERD SIRE: Out of a nice young cow (pictured) who was sired by our Pine Drive 10K. Covered the replacement heifers with a top 3% and 2% repectively for BW and CE EPDs. The 92U sire is listed above.
