Born a herdbull, everyone who has seen Treasure Island throughout his growth curve has fallen in love with him. He has the soft eye and dominating presence of a great Fleckvieh herdsire, with his loose-made depth, length, and natural muscling. His mother has not missed a beat. She has raised only herdbulls and a daughter that will never leave the farm. With her first son working for Richie Joynt, the length, color, and overall eye appeal is something that is dominant in her progeny. These are the first Bellagio sons to sell and this smooth polled powerhouse is a great start to our first ever sale book.

This blaze-faced Bellagio son is rolling in style and hair. His mother also has the blaze face and she offers some old power fleck blood with throwbacks to Western Union 5Z, and Houston. Great hair, high maternal, fertility and longevity, and performance without sacrificing too much calving ease; these Bellagio calves have great feet and are smooth travelling individuals that really have exceeded our expectations.

One of my favourites, this is unique blood here!! High Country is lonnnnggg spined. Five extra ribs longer and it shows in his weights. One of my top replacements is a black baldy tamarack daughter, and her length proves this is a dominant Tamarack trait. High Country also has that added black pigmentation in his googles, front hooves, ears and tail just makes me giddy as a breeder who loves to breed fullbloods to blacks and reds. This cow hasn’t missed; raising a weaning weight champion herd bull for Jo Walker and two black baldy bulls for Terry Dayholos. The value of a herdbull is often determined by his daughters and nothing is truer for Hugo, his daughters are workhorses that promote great color, performance, and that prized masculinity in addition to the polled gene. High Country is top of the line styling and genetics you could build some serious females around.

A big crested, smooth polled Graphite son. His Mother is a proven producer; who raised a high-selling son to KSL Simmentals, and she is a full sister to the mother of Treasure Island. As we continue to develop our herd, it is the cows that successfully raise these types of uber masculine bulls that are the most valuable. In addition to the power of the Baron female; Graphite progeny have been extremely marketable with their moderate birthweights and breeding versatility. We sold a polled Graphite son last year to Mike Didych, and high-selling female to David Grey last fall. These Graphite progeny are widely accepted and highly functional and make for easy buying and breeding decisions.

I love my Nighthawk progeny. They calved easily, and while you have to wait until they are about 5 months old, the jet fuel hits and it’s an explosive growth pattern from then on. 10G possesses a strong stack of calving ease genetics; offers a bit cleaner front, and a smidge more style than his brother, AJB 6G. His grandmother is one of the top Red Rock females here; raising two high-selling herdbulls. One for Jason Teeple in 2017, and our high-selling bull for 2019 to Luv-N-it Cattle Company. This cow family is extremely high-volume, consistently dark red, and good haired. Off a powerful first calf heifer who follows in her mother’s footsteps, Black Stealth is stacked with calving ease and maternal power.

M*A*S*H is just a touch thicker than his brother and offers a bit more rugged charm. Easily the biggest set of testicles in the pen since summer, the level of fertility in this bloodline is evident. He comes from a great cow family that you will see throughout the catalogue, going back to the 16Z fullblood cow, the mother of Lot 4. Layering the Red rock with the Nighthawk is like doubling down on awesome with the depth of rib, and soft-sided appeal. I had his mother on track to go to shades, but couldn’t bring myself to sell her. She has the makings of a herd matriarch with her lineage, extra dark red color and just visually stunning phenotype.

This is a full-quartered Whiplash son with some power that is hard to ignore. Long bodied, clean made without sacrificing the calving ease I depend on in my operation. With a such a strong focus on hands-free calving, we are just as careful to ensure we don’t lose our maternal calving ease. This is a long proven trait of Laredo and the BLCC 155S bloodlines, both carry extraordinary maternal strength; in their mothering abilities, longevity and udder structure plus rich milk quality. This bulls mother displays an exquisite udder, is large bodied with tons of natural rib shape. 23G also displays above average testicular development and hasn’t missed a beat since birth.

A black baldy son of Whiplash out of a gorgeous Triple R cow I bought a couple years ago. Her first calf was a high seller last year to Hanford Simmentals. This cow continues to impress me as she ages; I love her larger styling and great udder structure. AJB Barn Vodka is so easy to take, smooth, he will make a great breeding piece; offering a balance of frame and calving ease, with outstanding maternal potential and performance.

The youngest of the Whiplash sons, this red baldy calving ease prospect is a real gem. Whippersnapper is so mellow and soft made, he has a great balance of length and thickness. He is a touch smaller framed than the pen average; his mother ended up being the bonanza buffet of her pen last year, so this guy reflects her giving nature, although he has now almost caught back up to his ½ siblings. Layering multiple proven heifer calving ease bulls in one pedigree here; Big Sky, Red Rock, Laredo, 155S…this is a stacked fun house of Calving ease and Maternal superpowers. His maternal lineage is one of our more famous lines: His Grandmother being Ruby, this bull carries a lot of her identifiable traits; the gut, the length, the easy-going swagger.

Here is another AJB towering pancake stack of calving ease!! Goldmine is another generationally proven calving ease bull off of one of my favourite cows, a dark red blaze faced Laredo daughter off one of my highest volume Red Rock females. I kept her son last year, and used him in my own herd on heifers with great success. When I ai, I try to pattern these bulls to offer outstanding calving ease, growth, maternal power and longevity. I find comfort in things that are proven; this bull is a stack of proven bloodlines that have worked on heifers for more than a decade. This bull will also have the added value of giving his offspring an amazing hair coat; both sides of his pedigree have exceptional hair.

Looking for something a little outside the fray?? Something completely unique and special?? Mercury Rising is one of kind; His mother is one of my top Red Rock females that has great dark red hair year-round: She is the kind of cow that looks amazing at any angle. She has raised numerous females and one was a high-seller to WLB Livestock a couple years ago another is the mother of AJB 21G. The sire is a bull I played with a bit and was intrigued by the power of the old pedigree. If you are looking for something with a little more jam…this is your guy. A little bigger bw, but still calved hands free; Mercury Rising is big bodied, great haired, so soft made and gentle.

Here is a red baldy, half fleck prospect. A little younger, he offers some powerful genetics with amazing cow power behind him. His mother had old school hip and top, and a pie plate sized foot; the kind of cow you can only put two of in the front of the trailer. This cow family has proven highly productive, dark red as you could possibly want, wooly haired and so easy keeping. Her first daughter raised a bull for Big Sky Simmentals, a daughter for Downhill Simmentals, and I kept her son last year to try and add more of her amazing traits in the herd. Sadly, I had to move his mother last fall due to an udder injury at pasture which reflects in his lighter weaning weight.

Crusader is real testament to the power of high quality milk; the youngest calf in the offering he hasn’t given up any frame or performance to his pen mates. His mother is a proven Red rock female that hasn’t missed a beat: her daughter was a gorgeous high seller to Glasman Farms, and her son was a highseller to Walter Brydon last year. Crusader’s grandmother is a proven cow you have seen highlighted in the catalogue: AJB 16Z. His sire, Rocko, is a bull I bought to layer onto the Red rock daughters and his first daughters are calving this year and they are exactly what I aimed for; easy-keeping, explosive-ribbed females with exquisite udders and haircoats made for Manitoba. Rocko progeny are unparrelled for vigour at birth; I don’t touch a Rocko calf…ever. The vigour and type is so appealing that I used two Rocko sons last year to double down on the strengths of this bloodline.

This wooly haired Big Sky son is a great cross-section of red genetics. A cow purchased from Shades a couple years back, her first born has impressed and she has really fit into the AJB program. Tommy Boy is a well-balanced bull that is soft sided and easy keeping; he is attractive, long spined, and an easy choice for someone looking to make some red females, as Big Sky made some of the best. Goes without saying for a bull to be born in 1992, and still be in the top 2% of the breed for calving ease and maternal calving ease gives a little street cred to some very old blood, so while you may not know or remember ER Big Sky; his mark is indelible.
