2019 Heterosis on the Hi Line Bull Sale

Welcome to the 2019 Golden Triangle Breeders Sale

Welcome to this year's sale. I hope you are doing well. I run a survival of the fittest type cow herd. My average annual precipitation is less than 10 inches. Drought is common, wet years rare. My cows and heifers calve together out on pasture with no assistance from me. Years of culling for mothering ability and shipping all the stupid dingbats has resulted in a herd of highly intelligent cows with a strong herd instinct and superior mothering. They have become easier to work with. Saving time and money. The downside- they do not like to be isolated. I had no idea when I started, that I could breed a herd of hands free cattle.

University studies have shown that weaning weights have stayed flat for the last 20 years. I know my weaning weights are based on rainfall and pasture management. The only way to increase profit is by reducing expenses or increasing pounds produced per acre. That's where I come in. Use these bulls to produce low input, no maintenance, hands free cows. My cows, on average, are medium framed, in that 1000 to 1200 range. A little smaller cow means less inputs, a higher stocking rate and more total pounds sold. They have also proven to be exceptional heifer bulls, producing more live calves.

I practice line breeding in my herd. When you line breed a population you balance out at the average of the ancestry. All my herd bulls and all the bull calves in the sale are a 20 plus milk e.p.d. I do not care what the Angus Assoc. says. Their e.p.d.s have become more insane every year. The numbers on the paper should match the cattle in the pasture and they do not. All the calves in the sale have great dispositions, except where noted. And their dams all have excellent feet and udders, except where noted. I will tell you what is right and wrong with these bulls so you will not be surprised. Please call if you have any questions.

I have a few coming 2 year old bulls in the sale this year. If you need a little more bull power these boys should cover 50 – 75 head pretty easy. The yearlings 30 – 40. Past buyers have gotten good longevity from my bulls. The old 05 bull is still here at 9 and ready to go.

I have some photos and videos of the herd bulls and the cows thoughout the website, if you want to see what my cattle look like out in the pasture. Thank you for your interest in my program. I hope to see you sale day.
