Pro-Char Captain Morgan x TRI-N Buffy (TRI-N Payday)

Homo Polled, Homo Red.

2014 Canadian National Reserve Junior Champion Bull. A bull we are extremely proud to of raised. As we owned the sire and raised his mother we knew he was going to be great! Captain Morgan holds the record on our farm for the highest weaning weight ever recorded here (1060 lbs on October 1). As a yearling many perspective buyers came to purchase him with the question, “Is he in the sale?” Our answer was simple “NOPE!!” What a great decision we made! Captain Morgan stamps his calves by all being polled and red and having his extreme depth of body and his “kitty cat” temperament.

FFBB Red Buckle x Beaver Creek Ginger (Dim Creek Revenue)

Homo Polled, Red

Our newest addition and a bull that has a bright future here! When our former sale partners Beaver Creek Charolais dispersed their herd in 2013 we happened to be looking for a new calving ease bull to use predominately in our heifer pen. After watching how successful Gord was in marketing the FFBB Red Buckle sons throughout the years we figured we would grab the opportunity and purchase his best son. His first sons were well received in our 2016 bull sale.

LAE WICHITA 911W x TWN Sable 33S (Rockland Nolan)

A bull with incredible EPD’s that has proven himself in our herd. Here’s a bull that clawed his way to the top from starting in our commercial herd to becoming our predominant herdsire in our last 2 bull sales. Yangster sired the high selling bulls the last 2 years. He is a bull that offers extreme growth without sacrificing calving ease. Watch for his sons this year they are impressive!

In the spring of 2011 we were in search of a homozygous red, calving ease bull to use on our heifers and we found Whistler. Whistler has been everything we expected and more. He has proven himself to be a very easy calver and consistently sires calves with vigour. Whistler is possibly homozygous polled as all calves have been polled to date.

Cracker Jack topped the Cattlemans Classic Bull Sale in 2009 selling for $12,000 to Valleys End Ranch and Bremner Charolais. He was admired for his depth, incredible length and overall fullness of his loin and hind quarter. Not to mention the incredible calving ease that he possessed. Over the last several years we have Ai’d many heifers to him and have had minimal calving difficulties.

The bottom side of his pedigree consists of one of the most predictable cow families on our farm with his mother and grandmother both being in the top 1% of the breed for milk. Cracker Jacks mother, grandmother, great grandmother and great great grandmother are still in the herd today. Two full brothers sold to Steele Ranches and Cleveland Charolais in South Dakota. Cracker Jack is now working at Wells Charolais in South Dakota.

He bred both our entire commercial heifer pen alongside with several purebreds until the spring of 2006 when he got injured. We never had any calving problems to date.
