We have semen on our Senior Sires, Ranger 11R (PB53600), our fullblood 3W OB73264, Mr James P6 (AS50405) and our newest proven black sire, 77ZA Beefmaster (PB 72446). Ranger 11R is $25 a straw and James is $20 per straw . 3W is also $20 per straw. Beefmaster 77ZA is $15 per straw.
Our newest purchased herd sire is Xerox X002 (PB82446), owned in partnership with Alexander Farms. He is arguably the best low birthweight bull in our breed (we sure thought so). His calves are very fancy, clean fronted. He does particularly well on powerful females. He has produced many show champions, if that is your interest. He is a TERRIFIC heifer bull. His semen is $30 a straw and we have plans to jump him in winter of 2018 for sexed semen as well.
All these bulls are very thick, big butted, big/sound footed bulls. They all weigh about 2000 pounds. All four bulls have exhibited consistent low birth weight prodigy, and could be considered heifer bulls (3W has averaged 83# on all his prodigy). All bulls also show great performance at weaning and yearling weights. Ranger homozygous black and polled. Click here to see pictures.
To give you even more control of your breeding program, we are currently have sexed semen on three bulls available in both 1 million and 5 million per straw. James and 3W have both sexes, Ranger11 in male only. It seems to be the conventional wisdom that you have a lesser conception rate with sexed semen. That HAS NOT been the case for us! Please call to discuss sexed semen.

Yancy GLB 8143 (OB25992) $20 This is one good fullblood. He is in top 1% of breed in WW and top 4% in YW (if EPD’s mean anything to you) We have had no birthweight issues with him. He puts fantastic volume in his cattle and his females are especially good. Did I mention he is the sire of our Sire, Mr. James? We bred this bull heavy in Spring 16, look forward to the results. There is a good story as to how Phil Kimmerer got this bull from Golden Link. Let it suffice to say he was to be a herd sire for Golden Link and they owed Phil a favor….he got one good bull!
