2018 Production Sale AI Reference Sires
Steadfast Boaz T71
We sampled Boaz a couple years ago and came to use him again after we saw his daughters' production capacity. Boaz is an udder improver with the ability of his daughters to wean off a high percent of their body weight. They were also very feminine with adequate depth of rib. Combined with ranking in the top 15% of the breed for CED, BW and Stay and acceptable performance and correct feet and legs we have been pleased with what he has added to the herd.

5L Advantage 3267-221Y
XO Crowfoot 0102X
We thought long and hard about using a black/red carrier but saw too many of XO Crowfoot 0102X first set of calves did not disappoint us. The 2016 calf crop marks his second set of calves for us and he again did the job. His is a moderate frame 5 bull with perfect feet that consistently puts extra rib and top in cattle.
Impressive is another balanced EPD bull with EPDS in the top 30% or better for HB, GM, BW, HPG, Stay, MARB, and REA. He traces back to a number of highly maternal cattle in the Red Angus breed. Progeny are dark red, moderate in frame and very functional.
