 Around here you can get an older ground driven manure spreader to pull behind your tractor for $800 to $1,200

Pretty high cotton  $when there are much fewer venues to show one that valuable  O0

Maybe they are thinking positive and that more places are going to open up ?? Maybe they don't plan on showing her, maybe she is just going to be a breeding piece ??

 If you take the respective Breed Nat'l Jr show out of the picture, then I would say NAILE.

 I think Hill Haven has done a good job with combining a lot of US genetics with Canadian genetics. They did produce a bull called Bold that did a good job for a lot of people. We had a full brother to him that did a good job for us. Dale and Matt up there are good people and have done a good job with their cattle.

Lots of interesting pedigrees///// and BWS O0

 Unless you took the time to look each animal up by name, how do you know that?? With a lot of HC's, Evolution's and JSF bred cattle, I wouldn't think that the BW's are that out of line.
 There is some good looking cattle in the sale and cattle that I would be happy to bring home.

Oakview,  unfortunately the 112E bull died at the end of the breeding season. A week before i went to pull bulls.  So far i have 4 heifers from him bw from 87-69# and the 206E bull 1 heifer at 65# when the smoke clears( can only see about 200 ft for the last week) and the evac warning is lifted i will try to ge some pics.  Seriously if you are trying to make good cow that are competitive that dont add extreme bw. I suggest propel and long look.  Both are consistent and work well on saskvalley genetics.  Middle daughter is showing a long look out of a ramrod bonanza jazz cow, really cool and will be the future type i strive for. She is similer the the female coyote posted with a little more show look to her front end.

I like the Propel calves also. The bad thing is Schrag took him off the market and the semen that Sullivan has sold in 2 sales this spring brought from $130 to $140 a straw. I've got 8 straws left that I got from Cory last fall before he took it off the market

Lonnie, I really like the Red Reward lines. From himself to his full brother Red Power. They tend to moderate BW's, they improve EPD's and I really like the udders on the cows.

Star Lake is the ranch our dear leader ran into the ground before the ASA members chose him.

 I didn't get a vote in that. Did you ??

I'm ashamed to admit that his sire's sire is WHR Collin FR53, aka "Razor"! XBAR is going to have a field day here!


I wouldn't worry about that. He looks good. I love the way Collin is bred on the bottom side with Dazzler and Colleen.
Some people here in TN bought the US rights to Bushranger. They've got some pretty nice daughters of him.
The color doesn't bother me. If I wanted something solid colored and polled every time, then I would raise Angus.

Had you worried about that, maybe your Stars in the southern sky would have actually appealed to cattleman and it could have went on to be more than a one time flop.  Look what JSF has accomplished by utilizing pragmatic genetics.  With all the money behind Star Lake, had you had any skill in identifying and breeding functional beef cattle, you could be at the top of the game as they are.   Sullivan, Sarg, etc-- these guys are personalities.  It takes personality to sell something that lacks any intrinsic value.  So  its understandably why your sale results were so different, despite the fact that you use the same dysfunctional genetics.

Bahaha, You so funny. Do you really think I care what you think about what cattle I choose. If you are that worried about it, it was 2 sales not 1. As far as not having any more sales the owner decided to do something besides run registered cattle. Still running the Shorthorn base with Angus bulls. Once again, like I have said time after time raise what works for you and what you can sell. We had 2 pretty decent sales, but anyone in the purebred industry will tell you it takes at least 3 years to get a sale established. I am glad to see that you are so concerned what we have done up here in TN. Oh and by the way, it is Springlake. Star Lake is a Hereford outfit in OK if I'm not mistaken.  But I do appreciate the input, I'll keep that in mind for the future.

"Blue roans are hardest to produce and sell anywhere' Doesnt sound negative to me-


Misunderstood what you were saying. I read it as hardest to produce and hardest to sell anywhere.
 As far as Outsider goes, to each their own. Like I said, if I have seen any progeny they just didn't stick in my mind to make that big of an impression. But I'm not as a worldly travelled man as you and don't see as much cattle.
 I'll still take the my Nitro's.

 I'm going to have to strongly disagree with Mark. To start off with a blue roan is not hard to sell. They are usually way easier to sell than a solid red or RWM. As far as calving ease goes, I would use him any day and not worry. The calves are pretty stylish and the heifers make really nice cows. Just my opinion and experience.
 As far as Outsider goes, I have zero experience with. By his numbers he should be calving ease and what's been registered . If I have even seen anything out of him I really don't remember. So I personally am not rushing out to use him especially with him being out of a JPJ cow and he is a DSC(I'm not a JPJ fan at all). Looks like the majority of the calves by him were from Quad K in IL. Looks like Hahn used him a little.  JMHO.
