More Information on this Bull

 

The bull full of surprises.

When the 76 bull was born, he walked right up to me. I petted on him for a minute and then stabbed him in the ear. He has been mad at me ever since. I was surprised at his 90 pound birth weight. The Clova 27 cow always had little jackrabbit calves. As he grew I was surprised at the natural width he had and the extra length. He carries more bone than his maternal brothers and is very smooth in his joint structure with a tight foot and extra heel. { JMC 428 } He moves out like a stud horse, flows over the ground. A big long stride that tracks out well.

I was concerned about his disposition, so when working the bull calves I pinned him in a corner a couple times and he never ran over me. I figured if he was going to blow it would be at the AI stud, but Scott assured me he was a perfect gentleman.

I was shocked and unprepared when his calves started showing up 14 days early. I had no idea he would be a short gestation bull. His birth weights were a lot smaller than I anticipated, 60's and 70's. He did throw weight on cows with more birth weight, so I still don't trust him on heifers yet. The 2 heifers I used him on had birthweights of 68 and 70. . . . . Read More

Paturn 810 of JMac 422

Paturn 810 is a JMc 5137 son out of a Paturn 05 daughter - Clova 4B22 - who is a maternal sister to Paturn 76. 810 is a very deep long bodied, heavy built bull (a little extreme). He has a big slope to his hip structure- like an elk or bison. His daughters will calve in seconds not minutes. I used him on some lighter built rawboned type cows to add flesh. To a couple of pencil gutted cows to add capacity. A few heifers and a group of cows I haven't bred a bull for yet.

I considered him a throw away bull. By branding I was so impressed with his calves that I completely rearranged my breeding plans. His sons were the top performing sire group at weaning in 2020. They have better balance than 810. His daughters are very well balanced in their structure and not extreme in any way. Deep bodied, angular, with decent flesh. They are going to milk a little heavy and hopefully not get too big and inefficient.

I am going to change 810's name to Mickey D because that is where he is headed if I can't keep him home. He has this idea that he is supposed to breed every cow on the place and he is not going to let a fence stop him. Huge Libido.

810 is a good heifer bull. Excellent disposition. His sons will produce easy calving, easy keeping high powered daughters.

Paturn 825 of 7013 36

+1.5 +28 +48 +18

 

An ET calf from Jack McNamee's Shoshone Encore bred bull HBR 7013 out of my Clova 36 cow. The 7013 bull is known for his high quality females. Jack is using multiple sons, grandsons and ET brothers to 7013. The Clova 36 cow was the top cow in my herd for most of her life. Just like her mother and grandmother. Her full sister Clova 21 was the dam of the Paturn 56 bull. The Clova 36 cow was the mother of the Clova 27 cow, the dam of Paturn 76. She is the granddam to the Clova 422 cow, the mother of Paturn 810. Did I mention that the Clova Pride cow family is my best? The 8 n Quarter bull is the seventh bull I have used from the Clova Pride cow family.

The ET calves went thru a bad drought where they were raised. No grass and bad water. They looked like crap when I picked them up. They didn't look much better as yearlings. I dumped all the ET bull calves, no one was going to buy them, and just kept 8 n Quarter and his brother. Luckily I got a heifer that grew out well. When people go through the herd they always find her. Their first response is always “Oooh who is she!” The 8 n Quarter daughters are very nice. Deep wide angular with nice feminine heads. I was disappointed in his sons at weaning. Below average in the group, nothing special. By January 2021 his sons had grown up and bloomed. They are nice long, deep bodied thick bulls that are moving toward the front of the group.

The JMac bulls I have been using seem to produce fuel efficient easy keeping cows. They are great mothers with excellent feet and udders.

8 n Quarter is a good heifer bull with an excellent disposition (pet). His breeding group finished calving first.

More Information on this Bull

The next bull in my linebreeding program. This bull widens out my genetic base by bringing in the Paturn 56 bull and the Horse Butte 162 bull. The Paturn 56 bull was the most powerful growth bull I raised. I saved a son, sold 56 and then the son got hurt so I lost this paternal line. I now am bringing it in on the maternal side. The most important thing this bull does is bring in the Primrose 4-8 cow. The 4-8 cow comes in twice though her son Paturn 45 and once through her only daughter Primrose 711. The 4-8 cow had 12 great calves while she was here and her daughter is better than she was. The 57 bull carries that extra length with a broad barrel chest and the best foot of any of my bulls. He was a pet as a calf and is very easy to work with. He will be a good heifer bull with added growth and with 4 of my best cows up close in his pedigree his daughters will be excellent.

More Information on this Bull

A Paturn 05 son I kept to continue my line breeding program. I saved him based on the power of his dam, brothers and sister.

His dam, Emula 812, is a Paturn 45 daughter out of a double bred Jorgenson Ideal 033 cow. I had doubts about him and my breeding program until his calves started hitting the ground. Long masculine sons and clean feminine daughters. He adds length and balance to his calves and his daughters are more refined than their ancestors. 

Every generation of line bred just keeps getting better than the last. Calves have excellent dispositions. He worked well on heifers. Birth weights in the 70's and low 80's. I never touched a calf. In fact, I haven't touched a calf in years.

More Information on this Bull

The best bull I've ever raised and the best bull to ever walk my pastures. A medium frame bull that is wide deep and long. Excellent bone, body structure, balance and doesn't have the faults of his ancestry. He is lap dog gentle and transfers that to his calves. He is linebred five generations which makes him highly prepotent, extremely fertile, and genetically superior to most all other cattle. He will dominate a mating on birth weight and is a true heifer bull.

He is an aggressive, but efficient, breeding bull - breeding 25 as a yearling, 43 of 44 at two years old, 54 of 55 at three years old, and 45 at four years old, with only a handful past 30 days calving.

Daughters: At calving his daughters were ALL calm and soft in their disposition. They were ALL excellent mothers who laid out with calves for 3 days, and they ALL had perfect square udders with 2/3 little finger teats. On the downside they milked down a little harder than I thought they would. I believe they have enough milk to take advantage of any extra rain or grass. I calved 14 daughters with 1 dink calf. The best 1st calf heifers I have ever raised. Call if you have any questions. -Paul

 

J Mc 5137 of 3434

Another Shoshone bred bull from Jack McNamee to continue my second bloodline. JMc 5137 is a tightly linebred bull tracing three times up close to the True Bess 1945 cow, and carries 50% of her blood. Jack has identified 4 superior cow families on his ranch. The True Bess and Sweet Sarah are 2 of them. This bull intensifies the genetic goodness of the 1945 cow. In my experience linebreeding, when you stack them up the good ones keep getting better and the rest find their way into the cull pen.

The bulls I've gotten from Jack are very athletic and smooth moving. They have extra length and great structural balance. One thing I like is their tight foot with extra length in the heel. Like my bulls, they have a strong libido. I expect him to be a hands free heifer bull and to produce low input, no maintenance true range cows.

Proud – Arrogant – Vain. This is how I would describe Paturn 320. He thinks he's quite the stud muffin.

Paturn 320 is a son of the JMc 428 bull and out of the Manor 7009 cow. The JMac bull is a Shoshone Encore bred bull that I lost in 2013 with a broken leg. Manor 7009 is a granddaughter of the great Sitz Manor cow at the Oxbow. I compare all cows' mothering ability to the Manor cow. She is calm and attentive and stays out with her calf for three days. (Side note: I now own her mother and sister.)

The Encore bred cattle are known to be low maintenance, low input cattle. The JMac daughters mothering compares almost equal to the Manor cow. The JMac daughters seem to be more fuel efficient and have higher quality milk. The Manor cow is very heavy milking and the Outcross 364 daughters seem to milk heavier and longer into the fall.

I never intended to keep the 320 bull but he was so good I couldn't sell him. As a calf he had a nice wide stance and good depth that carried his full length. We all know that height equals height, but length equals weight and 320 adds that extra length. His calves have nice structural balance. Daughters are feminine and clean fronted with good depth and width into the hind quarter. I was concerned about disposition but his calves all seem to be pretty docile. A good heifer bull – weights in the 70's and low 80's. I never touched a calf.


JMC 428 - Herd Sire

J Mc 428 of 7013

+0.4 +31 +47 +11

A Shoshone Encore bred bull I purchased from Jack McNamee from Miles City.

The Encore cattle are known to be medium frame, highly fertile, low maintenance and problem free. 428 is larger framed than most Encore cattle and is bigger in his bone structure. He is athletic and smooth moving.

I am very pleased with his calves. He seems to add balance to my heavy cattle, adding length to the hip, shoulder and neck. He smoothed them out some. His first daughters in production are excellent mothers, as good as the 05 cows. Good dispositions and great udders, and they also laid out with their calves for 3 days. The 428 cows stayed in good shape this summer. They seem to be more fuel efficient and I believe they have higher quality milk. 428 broke his leg so I only got 2 calf crops from him. The last 2 years I have been doing embryo work with his sire HBR 7013, and plan on getting a brother to 428. He will be the base for a second line of cattle here at Turner Angus.
