Herd Sires
We demand more out of our bulls than we do our cows, for good reason. Bulls have a larger impact on the herd than a cow ever could. We expect to get 8 producing years out of a bull and 30-50 calves per year. That's an average of 320 calves over their lifetime. Even a very productive cow could only naturally produce about 10 calves in her lifetime. A bull's genetic merit has a much greater influence due to numbers. So it is with great care that we select our herd and AI sires. See our Semen Listing for available semen.
 Fullback at 3 yrs old during breeding season
Red Angus Registration 3892907 2018 100% Red Angus, 1A
Fullback was the high selling bull at the 2019 PCC Colorado Spring bull sale. He is the epitome of low-input, grass-based genetics. His calves come easy and are quick to nurse. He is an udder-improving bull. His dam has a perfect udder that is level, with small, evenly spaced teats. He is about a 3.5-frame bull that will moderate size and increase efficiency in his offspring. He has great thickness, muscling, and depth. He received 5-stars across the board for all the traits PCC scores for. We expect great things from this bull! Owned with Paul Landrigan, Wetovick Red Angus and Pharo Cattle Co. Semen is available.
Freedom at 3 yrs old in the fall
Red Angus Registration 4022772 2018 100% Red Angus, 1A, A2/A2, PAP 37
Freedom would have been the lead-off bull in the 2019 PCC Colorado Fall sale, but was held out of the sale. Freedom posses great fleshing ability and libido. He packs a little more power. He is about a 4-frame bull and weighed 1750 lbs as a 3-yr-old (pictured). He has great depth and looks like a barrel most of the time. Similar to our Roy bull, he gets put on a diet over the winter, or he just gets too fat. He is a 5-star bull with 4-star calving ease (I would argue 5-star after his first calf crop). Freedom will increase efficiency and add fleshing ability in his offspring. He has a great set of testicles and covers cows quickly. He was used with Fullback in a multi-sire group with 90+ cows as a 2-yr-old, and achieved a 95%+ conception rate with 85% bred in the first cycle. He slicks off early and has good fly resistance. Owned with Dry Creek Red Angus and Pharo Cattle Co. Semen is available.
Red Angus Registration 1569159   ASA 2706946   2011 75% Red Angus, 25% Fleckvieh Simmental, scurs
116Y is an exceptionally thick and deep bull we purchased from Tim Ohlde of Ohlde Cattle Co. This bull is sired by one of the well noted bulls from Roy Beeby: BB 5236 BBRED 6015. From what Tim said, 6015 was well received in South America with plenty of admirers for being forage efficient. In South America, almost all cattle are grass finished, so to be well known among already forage efficient cattle is quite an accomplishment. His MGS is OCC Hunter, whose quality is well know, and his MGD is a fullblood Fleckvieh (or Fleck, for short). Tim was able to hand pick a dozen cows or so from the Arnold Brothers before they dispersed, and 116Y's MGD was one of them. Fleck cattle are of German decent. If you know anything about German cars, Fleck cattle are just as well know for their quality. DNA testing showed that 116Y was in the top 15% for Residual Feed Intake. This was very apparent when throughout the winter we had to feed him straw and stems to keep him from getting too fat! He had a yearling scrotal of 37 cm and frame score of 4.3 at 1120 lbs. His mature measurements are 1950 lbs, 4 frame, and 45 cm scrotal. When semen tested, he received a score of 96% for motility and 97% for normal cells. Great genetics and forage-fed make a difference. He has a great disposition as well. See the videos below where Steve Campbell takes his linear measurements in the pen. We have high expectations for this bull. Semen is available.
Red Angus Registration 1594471  2013 100% Red Angus, 1A, A2/A2
Easy Kind is an Easy Red son out of an impeccable Right Kind daughter. He is moderate with a 3.7 yearling frame score and 35 cm scrotal. His semen test results have always been 95+ for both percent motility and normal cells. We expect him to be an udder improver with great calving ease. His first calves came easy and had great vigor. We have no doubt about his longevity, fertility, calving ease and low-maintenance traits, because he was bred that way. But it is nice to have EPDs that back up our claims, and his do. As a calving ease bull, he packs plenty of muscle and shape with a masculine build. He has an excellent disposition, and his daughters have been quiet and calm. He is homozygous for the A2 beta-casein (A2/A2).
 C11 at 2 yrs old during breeding season
Red Angus Registration 3483118 2015 100% Red Angus, 1A, A2/A2
Courageous is another impressive Easy Red son that packs a little more power and shape. His dam is a beautiful Cherokee Canyon daughter (X12) that we purchased in-dam from Buffalo Creek before they dispersed. She is a thick cow with a great udder. Courageous was born during a cold spring, that saw most birthweights about 5-10 lbs above our longterm average. He was on our radar since a calf, and we couldn't wait to see how he developed. He will add thickness and fleshing ability, while still maintaining purebred status. He scanned well for carcass traits. He had a 38 cm scrotal as a yearling, with a frame score of 4, and tested homozygous for the A2 beta-casein (A2/A2).
COOLER at 3 yrs old during breeding season
Red Angus Registration 1748249 2015 100% Red Angus, 1A. A2/A2
We purchased COOLER as a baby calf, along with his dam, from OCC. I saw a full brother in Tim's bull pen, and really liked him, but he wasn't for sale. Later that day we were looking through Tim's cows and I saw COOLER with his dam and the negociations began! COOLER is a smooth-made bull with extra capacity and plenty of shape. I liked the older Beeby pedigree on the top, and Eureka and EXT up close on the bottom. COOLER is a twin, but posted a heavy weaning weight and the highest rate-of-gain. He has a great disposition and is around a 4 frame. He tested homozygous for the A2 beta-casein (A2/A2).
 71L at 3 yrs old
Red Angus Registration 1482457  2011 100% Black-Red Angus, II  Video
We purchased 71L from Mark DeBoo at Diamond D Angus as a heifer bull. We were intrigued by his pedigree that combined genetics from Beeby, Beckton, and Diamond D. He is a grandson of Choctaw Chief 373, one of the great foundation Red Angus bulls. 71L is compact and well put together for a heifer bull, and he was developed without any grain! He had a 37 cm scrotal at 18 months and was a 3.5 frame. We look for some great replacement females from this bull. He tested homozygous for the A2 beta-casein (A2/A2).
AI Sires
Red Angus Registration 1622476  2009 100% Red Angus, 1A
We obtained semen on Easy Red from Tim Ohlde without ever having looked at the bull. Crazy, you may say, but I trusted Tim's representation of this bull, and when he recommended that I use him, I didn't bat an eye. When I was finally able to see him in person, boy was I glad I trusted Tim! Easy Red's thickness and depth are impressive. He represents everything that the OCC program stands for, just in a red package. Tim said he is just under a 5 frame, and I concur. Easy Red scored a 9 out of 10 for tenderness when DNA tested, making him an ideal sire for value-added marketing. He also tested homozygous for the A2 beta-casein (A2/A2). His calves have not disappointed. T&T Easy Red A-03.
 Cash Crop at 7 yrs old
Red Angus Registration 1017932 2004 100% Red Angus, 1A
Cash Crop is a moderate and efficient bull that was produced in the Pharo program. His capacity and thickness are commendable. His pedigree compliments what we were already doing: combining Buffalo Creek and Ohlde genetics. We look for his progeny to provide the next generation of functional and efficient cattle that have an edge when it comes to producing in grass-only programs. He tested homozygous for the A2 beta-casein (A2/A2).
