2019 Calves

The 2019 calf crop was pretty salty!!  It did lean a little more towards the bull end of the spectrum.  Here are a few snapshots of the crop

Bull calf we are keeping.  He's out of a cow we bought in the Minnesota State Sale from Doug Bruns.  He's a JDMC Standout times Big Sky momma.  Double bred Bonanza!

He's pretty thick!
Here's the other bull we are keeping.  DMH Cherry Fillet back to a Saskvalley Warrior daughter.  Soggy red and polled!

TS Ben Cartwright times Deerhorn Fresh Prince.  She was sold to Kaitlyn Rux. Thanks Kaitlyn!!
Here's a Fall calving heifer back to DMH Maverick.  We have 15 calves out of him and they all came easy and are pretty stout.  Tough Fall with the weather but they seemed to push through it.
 

We moved all of our Red Angus females to the Fall herd.  I also own a Regulator Son from Nordlund Stock Farm with Rob Tate and Dean Taylor.  Here's the oldest calf out of him.  Her mother is out of an NBAR Hamley son.


Busy Summer!!

It was a very busy summer!!  It started out with Pre-school Graduation for Brenden.
It was his idea to wear the tie!! I'm told he graduated with honors!

The next venture was T-Ball
If you can't pick it up from the picture he's all left handed!
We then let the genie out of the bottle for Brenden's show career with some showpigs from Steve and Jill Resler.  Tiana added a couple of gilts to the mix too.

With her Elsa dress on Loralei didn't look back on the first day of pre-school!

2018 Heifer Calf Crop

Hope the winter season has been treating everyone well!  It looks like the cold and snow are settling in for a normal winter.  I was very fortunate to be able to connect with a cattlemen from North Dakota this past Fall and market all but one of my spring born Shorthorn heifers as well as a couple of Fall 2017 heifers.  I did want to post some pictures of them as I am very proud of what we produced.



Most of the calves were sired by TS Ben Cartwright.  You can see an updated picture of him on the sires page.

Because of the sale I didn't have any females to consign to the Minnesota State Shorthorn Sale.  We do have a nice set of Fall 2018 purebred heifers if anyone is interested.

2018 Cattle Offering

Normally I would be posting pictures of bred and open heifers we were consigning at the Minnesota Shorthorn Sale.  This past year was very successful in terms of marketing females so I didn't have many open heifers to make into bred heifers!  Good problem to have!  We do have some 2017 born  heifer calves mostly sired by TS Ben Cartwright (Bonanza Son)  Here are some examples:

Ben C. times Fresh Prince
Ben C. times 80c
We also have a nice set of Fall born heifer calves out of a bull which originated with Haumont Shorthorns in Nebraska.  They are still on the cow so I will post pictures later.
