Open Range was purchased as an outcross sire who could maintain the overall performance and muscle we expect while adding a bit of extra quality. He is so level in his design and ideal in his pattern and we believe it is these traits that quickly identify his offspring.  Where he has pushed the curve is his exceptional growth and performance in cattle that are extremely massive in their design.  He has been the perfect piece to the puzzle that is continuously being assembled.

785B was selected as the popular high-seller from CK Cattle in Alabama where he stood out as a power bull in one of the most competitive contemporary groups in the breed. He is an exceptionally well-balanced and correct bull with the additional length, scale, and muscle shape needed to drive true growth and feedlot performance. He compliments this by offering a truly unique combination of maternal and carcass traits. He will be offered a cross section of our herd in the summer of 2017 to identify where he fits best in making the next generation of performance genetics.

Big Iron was acquired from Higgins Farms in TN in an effort to preserve the Chianina Influence in our females for years to come.  He is a full sib to our pick of the Higgins cowherd and represents exceptional balance, correctness, and his first calf crop would indicate growth as well.  Our hope is these traits breed true and his genetic profile will reflect this in time.

Sarg was sold in a previous sale and reacquired after seeing him mature and develop into a near ideal beef bull.  He combines what we have found to be the best of Chianina genetics with what have been the best Angus bloodlines we have used.  He was admired in the showring, but we are optimistic he will excel as a herd sire with both sons and daughters of equal quality.

Momentum exemplifies the strength and purpose of a modern composite bull. This 40% Chi sire has built his reputation on providing maximum power in one generation. His sons have set the standard for growth and performance, out pacing some of today’s most popular Angus bulls. He will add bone, muscle dimension, and overall mass to cows of any shape or size. However, we feel his reputation will be etched in his daughters as a sire who improves udder quality and teat size in females that are moderate framed and deep bodied. His combination of maximum early growth and moderate mature size will is unrivaled.
