A couple of our herd bulls
« on: June 02, 2016, 01:46:55 PM »
I snapped a couple pics of a couple of our herd bulls while checking pastures this morning.

The first picture is HC Free Spirit 6Y. He is now 5 years old and is our senior herd sire. He has sired our best sire group again this year. We had two assisted births in 2016, with both being malpresentations.  He was wintered on nothing but hay and a salt block. He has been breeding cows for over 2 months and I expect he is done for this year. I rank him as one of the best herd sires ever to walk our pastures in the 99 years we have had a purebred Shorthorn herd. He is moderate framed, long bodied and thick with excellent muscling. Besides this, he has the most gentle disposition. The European semen rights in him are owned by Grousehall, Cambria and Rowanberry Shorthorns in Ireland. The Australian rights are owned by Sprys Shorthorns, Wagga Wagga, NSW Australia.
We have semen available in Canada and the US at $40/ straw. US semen is stored at Hawkeye Breeders, Adel, IA.

Sire:  HC Timeline 17T
Dam: New Beginnings Elsie's Jade

The second bull is our newest herd sire, Saskvalley Blue Jeans 136B. He was one of the high selling bulls in the Who's Your Daddy sale. He is very complete and is smooth shouldered, structurally sound and soft made. He also moves like a cat in the breeding field. He is getting some of our best females this year, including a set of Free Spirit daughters.

Sire: Saskvalley Yosemite Sam 3Y
Dam: Saskvalley Dora 178Y

Does HC Timeline have a different name on ASA Registration?  Something like HC Slick Trail??  I was trying to look up Free Spirit.

Now that is weird!  I have no idea where the name HC Slick Trail 4275YY came from?  As far as I can tell everything else on his pedigree on the ASA registry is correct. The only thing wrong that I can see right now is his sire's name. It should be HC Timeline 17T. Free Spirit is THF, PHAF and DSF just as it shows on the ASA site. I will contact the ASA tomorrow and see if I can get this corrected right away.

People can't believe we have such a big moon for such a small town.
