CL 1 Domino 5184C

He’s got maternal (Dam is top end 175E daughter), carcass, pigment, and travels out freely. We bid on him at Cooper’s 2016 sale and faced stiff competition from someone online. That “someone” turned out to be our partner on the bull 1/2 hour after the sale: Vernie Doehring of Noack Herefords, TX. He was a popular feature on our September 2016 Nebraska Hereford Tour.

LCI BD 30Z Silver 319C

We’ve sold to and bought from the Doenz family for three generations now, so when Nelson called to tell us he had a bull he thought we’d like, we listened. Bought in their Nov. 2015 sale, 319C has grown and grown in our regard, as well. Thick, well put together, great temperament … we like him. First calves spring 2017.

HH Advance 4067B ET

When this Bull walked in the ring at Holden’s 2015 sale, Mary, who was watching the sale online at home, said out loud “Now that’s a Bull we should buy.” Little did she know that John WAS bidding on him, but stopped when he saw Mark Cooper was bidding. Later we were able to purchase half of 4067B from Coopers. He checks all the boxes for individual performance and ultrasound data.

4067B has tremendous depth of side, length of body, thickness down the top and is overall just a powerhouse of a Bull. 40 cm scrotal. Moves soundly with plenty of bone and substance. 2.3 BW EPD.

HH Advance 4105B ET

First bull in the ring in Holden’s 2015 Sale. Thick made, big topped, square hipped and deep flanked with extra volume, fleshing ability and pigment. 4105B is a light BW Bull with excellent carcass EPD’s with outstanding scan data and performance. Big nutted, sound footed and naturally stylish. Plus he’s out of a 16-year-old Miles City raised cow that’s a great donor. Owned with Holden, Debter and TNT.

 

 

Cooper 330

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CL 1 Domino 330A 1ET

We badly needed a special sire to cross back on our terrific 0141’s, and we found him in 330A at Cooper’s 2014 sale. He’s so good, in fact, that we decided to purchase him solo regardless of his ticket price. We’re now collecting 330A for South American shipment, and hope to see his get during the 2016 World Hereford Conference in Uruguay. We’re anxious to see his calves here Spring 2015.

HH Advance 3203A

We purchased this promising herd sire in Holden’s 2014 sale, partnering once again with Glynn and Perry Debter, Debter Herefords, Horton, Alabama. We look forward to his calves dropping Spring 2015.

 

 

2207Z

HH Advance 2207Z Our 2013 Herd Sire pick was 2207Z. He’s a tremendous individual with the performance, cow family, scan data, and EPD’s to back him up. Very long-spined, deep ribbed bull with extra dimension. He is clean fronted, stylish, and has big testacles. Dam is a well-marked, super productive female that was Holden’s Pick of Our Herd offering in the 2009 Denver Sale. 2207Z was #1 in the sale in adj. 365 wt. (1550) and YW EPD, #2 in WW EPD, and top 1% of breed in WW, YW, MM, M&G, and Marbling EPD’s. Partnered with Debters and White Hawk on this outstanding Herd bull.

 

 

HH-Advance-1193Y-ET

HH Advance 1193Y ET

1193Y has the carcass, the performance & the look we demand. Pictured the day he got off the truck at our ranch spring 2012. Owned with Glynn & Perry Debter and White Hawk/Gary Hedrick.

 

 

YV 34W Major Mark Lad 2Y Purchased from the Nels & Terri Nixdorff family in the 2012 Calgary Bull Sale. This Sire is exciting! With a 72# birth weight and 745 weaning weight, we used 2Y on both cows and heifers his first breeding season. (Semen is available for both US and Canadian use.) Now we’ve raised and sold 2Y Bulls and Heifers and he is even more exciting! The high selling Bull in our 2014 sale was out of 2Y and sold to Stuber Ranch, Bowman, ND. Several breeders made their way to our ranch prior to our sale to see his bulls, his heifers, and him. 2Y’s 2014 calves are standouts!

 

 

CL-1-Domino-0141-1ET

CL 1 Domino 0141 1ET

Powerhouse new bloodline. The 475 Dam is an ideal brood cow with flawless udder structure. The 860 sire produces the thick-butted, red-eyed kind of bulls we demand. 0141 had the highest actual and adjusted Rib Eye measurement in his year group at over 15 square inches! Perfect disposition with outstanding EPD’s. We were fortunate to purchase 0141 with Debters and White Hawk/Hedrick. We used him naturally and AI his first season and sent him on down to Georgia. He’s grown, bred up very well, and has impressed all of us. We sold his progeny in our 2014 sale and he was the high-selling Sire line. 2014 calves – bulls and heifers alike – are outstanding.

 

CL-1-Domino-955W

CL 1 Domino 955W

We own a semen interest in this tremendous young sire sold in the 2010 Cooper sale. Additional semen packages were auctioned off at the 2011 National Western Stock Show for $69,000. The back story is that when we went looking for a top new outcross Herd Sire with thickness and eye appeal and the whole package….we found the right combination in 955W. His calves and mature get are impressive. He sires calving ease, super thickness, and standout females. Muscle, performance, carcass, maternal – 955W scores high on all, and he just keeps getting better. 955W shows, he sires, and his calves are thick, correct, and top performing.

 

FA 71S Britisher 102W

We bought 102W in 2010 from Darryl Anderson. He’s been a great match for our cowherd. His calves are big, thick, terrific looking bulls and heifers. 102’s Dam was our pick as one of the top females John has seen in Canada. His heifers are top with excellent performance. His sons were particularly sought after in this year’s sale after we cataloged 102W’s updated photo, taken June 2012 as Nebraska’s drought deepened.  Sold Feb. 2014 to Bill Bennett of BB Herefords, Connell, Washington.

 

JNHR-Silver-Standard-723U

JNHR Silver Standard 723U

We purchased 723U from JoNomn – the Norm Parrent family – at Calgary in 2010 and he gave us what we wanted in spades. 723U is super thick, has terrific markings, and a great disposition. He’s a cow-calf man’s dream.  (Semen is available.) His calves are stamped by his “look” and they go on to make top sons and daughters.

 

Bar-JZ-Striker-093U

Bar JZ Striker 093U

We purchased Striker on the merit of his mother and because his sire was a very popular Rib Eye sire. 93U offers extreme light birth weight. His first calves indexed at 96 for birth weight and 106 for weaning weight. He offers the best of polled and horned genetics. His sons and daughters have beautiful eye appeal, loads of length, and tons of eye pigment. You notice them. And they perform.   (Semen is available.)

 

 

K 64H Ribstone Lad 157K

157K is an 11-trait, proven industry leader. 157K is known and used throughout the United States and western Canada. This breed-leading Sire is an American Hereford Assn. 11-trait leader. After several calf crops with 157K, and his sons and grandsons, we know with certainty that his daughters have perfect udder conformation and are moderate sized. He sires red eye pigment, great dispositions and superior performance and makeup. His calves’ actual carcass scans are impressive. His birth weight is breed average in horned and polled herds alike. In fact, we thing so highly of 157K that we continue to use him AI and are using 5 sons or grandsons of him.   (Semen available on 157K.)
