Herd Bull Time
« on: April 11, 2012, 08:36:00 PM »
How does your herd sire line up look like? Our black angus yearling passed the semen test and was dropped off this afternoon. He is a little coarser up front than we had hoped for and because we have a nice calving ease shorthorn we will probably end up putting our yearlings with the shorthorn again. "Rosco" is one year old. he is getting the cows we don't want to keep heifers from.  Governor is two and we are putting our best ( or favourite) cows with him. What do you think? If you have pictures of the bulls your using it would be nice to see them.
Money can't buy you happiness, but it can buy you cows... and that's pretty much the same thing.

Just going to start off with one as of now, since he's the only one I have a current picture of :)  We call this guy Mojo, he's a 3/4 blood Dream On X 734 bred by Double J.  Also attached is one of the replacement heifers from his first calf crop, she's a February 2011 out of a Hereford/ Angus cow.

It would not make a very interesting post if I put up a picture of 3 different straws of semen, but I plan to use 3 bulls this yeaar by AI.  Shadybrook Scotty will be used on the heifers.  The others will get either Wolf Willow Major Leroy 1M or Glenford Gus 4H.

Like the replacement heifer. Dumb question, why is she so long toed? You know she is really solid when negative me notices that first by the way... (lol)

Our herd bulls 2012 are the following

seniors
Diamond Prophecy 21P

Glenford Captain 39X

Diamond Xplosion 23X (on share with Gordon Turner Farms)

Braebank Wentworth 3W (on share with Circle M Shorthorns)

juniors
Diamond Young Baron 54Y (heifer bull)

Newbiggon Young Flag 52Y



The three who will see the most service are Prophecy, Captain, and Tier One. Xplosion is going to be working on some commercial two year old's starting May 1st so he is being selectively bred here until then.   We are very pleased with our calves and think that Captain has joined Prophecy as a consistent sire.  Wentworth will be returning from BC in May Circle M are absolutely thrilled with his calves.

Came from Burke's in Nebraska? If so I was impressed by this bull as a heifer bull and was tempted to bid on him.

Rock'n D Midland 2861 "ROCKY"
2/20/2008

BR Midland Grandson out of a B A R Ext Traveler 205 daughter

This picture is of him at work last year, it'll probably be his last year on our place, we only have about 10-12 calves a year and we've been keeping back some heifers of his that are real nice, so it's time for a new bull that isn't related....so he'll be for sale when work is done this summer if anyone is interested   ;D

As for this year, we're also using EXAR Tryon on a couple cows,  Right Answer on the heifers and I got some Eye Candy a week for the price went up for my one clubby momma!
