As we focus on fertility, thickness, depth of body and efficiency, we continually monitor our herd and our customers' needs to make sure we are offering top quality, high performing cattle; our cattle are designed to stand up to harsh winters, and hot dry summers. This year's offering will include calves off of several nationally known herd sires, and also from our own herd sires that we have hand-picked to enhance our program and maintain the quality we strive to provide.
255 has become our most heavily used sired. This easy-keeping Chisum son out of a tremendous Chinook daughter has proven to be a calving ease bull that adds depth and thickness to his progeny. His daughters are excellent mothers with great udders. 255 has outstanding feet which he passes on to his progeny; we often use him as a foot corrector. 255 daughters are cleaner fronted and more eye appealing cows than most Chisum-bred cattle. He has been used all over the nation producing heavy muscled, low birth weight sons. Leased to Select Sires; owned with Spickler Ranch and Shipwheel Cattle Company.
Sit Logo 12964 was one of the most talked about bulls of the 2017 Montana Angus Tour. Logo is exceptionally thick and long with more hind leg than most any bull we have seen. He boasts an impressive EPD spread with a +15 CED and -3.4 BW to a 76 WW and 116 YW. His first set of calves has been weaned setting his birth ratio at 95 on 240 head; his weaning ratio is 103 on 238 head. We look for Logo to add fertility with a 2.0 SCTRL and a 16.7 HP, both of which are in the top 2% and 1%, respectively, of the breed. Logo sons are moderate framed with a long, square hip. His daughters are one of our favorite sets of heifers. They are chisel fronted, eye appealing cattle; we look for them to be as easy doing as he is. This spring we used 140 straws during AI; he is a real-deal heifer bull. Owned with Sitz Angus and Griffin Land and Cattle.
Also a hit on the Montana Angus Tour, Asset is our go to growth bull. 402C is out of the famous Sitz Ellunas Elite 656T â€“ dam of Sitz Investment and Sitz Reinvested. He has an exception EPD profile with 9 EPDs in the top 15% of the breed. He should add both growth and carcass traits to his progeny. Asset is going to mature to a bigger frame than his sire while being lower birth weight. With more neck extension than most Resource sons, his daughters should be feminine. We used Asset heavily this spring, as did Sitz Angus and KG Ranch. The calves are excellent in all three places. Owned with Sitz Angus and KG Ranch.
Top Seed - or X, as we like to call him - is a moderate framed, low birth weight Upward Son with excellent feet. His daughters are pretty-fronted and powerful, and his sons are deep and thick. He continues to be one of the top selling sire groups in our sale, and for good reason: he is a top calving ease sire that provides the thickness, depth and efficiency we are proud of. Owned with Minert/Simonson Angus, Sitz Angus and Lindskov-Thiel.
Phenotypically, Regions is one of the best bulls we ever bought. He has tremendous shape, a big hip, straight back and exceptional feet. We used him right down the center of our herd. Some of our best bred heifers are sired by Regions. This bull is QUIET!
Investment is a growth bull and a breeding fool. We use him to cover lots of cows during our natural breeding. This large scrotal bull will add frame and dimension to his progeny. At $158 $B, he has excellent carcass EPDs and should sire excellent feeder cattle.
Judgment sires extremely deep ribbed, low birth weight cattle. He is an easy-doing bull; when we pull him out of the cows he is as deep and thick as when we turned him in. His daughters are some of our best cows. Owned with KG Ranch.
Calvary 3205 was our top pick at the 2014 Mytty Angus sale. His sons have been well received by our customers, and he has proven himself a calving ease heifer bull. We like the thickness and depth of his progeny. Owned with Mytty Angus Ranch.
Parker, an Aberdeen son off of a tremendous 004 bred cow, was our pick at the 2014 Lindskov-Thiel Ranch sale. This quiet, high rib eye bull will add dimension and looks to his progeny. He also has good, quality feet.
