2019 PTP Sneak Peak
     
 
LOT 60
– See lot 27 from the 2018 below – lot t60 is the 565 cow’s second try and it was a home run – again! This high chi herd sire was fortunate to incorporate the best pieces of each side of his pedigree. He has the muscle and power we would expect from the top side of this pedigree, with the performance of the Open Range line, and that truly unique look we have come to expect from this Cara cow family. A top 3% yearling growth sire with endless phenotype!
  LOT 57
To simply put it – he has it all! Power, width, depth, style, and structure. Every time he breeds a cow he will make the next generation better. He is an illustration of why we are so excited to start incorporating the 2018 Denver champ, Unanimous, into, our program. Add in his super fault-free dam that gets it done, with his to 4% growth numbers and you know he will work.
     
 
LOT 66
It is easy to say one is special, but this one is truly like no bull we have ever raised. We flushed the 7032 cow (mother of Northern Advantage) to Classen hoping for that standout show ring phenotype. What we got were two special heifer calves being shown by the Bush and Petersen families, and this guy. We have never made one with this much style, structural correctness and tie it with so much power and performance in one package. He has “it” plus top 4% growth.
  LOT 48
This bull is the kind we strive to make. He is the kind of ChiAngus bull that commercial cattlemen flocked to buy for decades. He brings balance and power in a clean made, large-framed package. We have been sampling his sire, a past sale highlight, and are ready to continue moving forward with him in a big way. He hit a big number for yearling weight in the most environmentally stressful year our cattle have ever faced – he did not miss a beat! He is a top 2% growth bull with power and balance.
     

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE 2018 PTP SALE...
 
LOT 27
Sired by Advantage this low birthweight sire is out there in terms of look with a championship pedigree, he also lands in top 10% of the breed for calving ease, 25% for growth and 2% for milk.
  LOT 1
Sired by Open Range he puts everything together we would ask for from a herd bull.  Fast growing, sound made, and big testicles he ranks in the top 2% of the breed for growth and Igenity identifies him as a standout for Stayability, Docility, ADG, and Tenderness!
     
 
LOT 6
Another standout from a sire group that did not miss!  He gives extra growth and power with a little more of the Chi style.  He is a top 2% bull for growth with high marks for ADG and Muscle from Igenity Gold.
  LOT 11
Sargent is a new sire group that was not matched for performance here this year.  Bulls that grow like this in the contemporary group don’t hurt, he’s bred ChiMaine on the bottom side – this fast growing bull is top 5% for growth EPDs.
     
 
LOT 15
For those that truly appreciate what the Chi gene does, you will love this Sargent son.  Out of the best female we have ever owned from the Higgins operation – he is a top 5% YW EPD bull with over 20% Chi.
  LOT 17
Don’t sleep on the Big Irons – he will add more Chi, more look, and more quality than most – he sired a National Champion Female after only breeding about 10 cows his first year.  This guy is extremely big footed, long bodied, and perfect structured with to 15% growth.
     
 
LOT 29
If this one doesn’t get your blood pumping, check your pulse.  This bull from a first calf heifer is absolutely flawless.  Big framed, nearly 20% Chi and top 5% growth EPDs – Tie on!
  LOT 31
There a couple of these Brilliance sons that are high type and calving ease, this one’s mother is bred so well and a sib to some of the most prominent ChiAngus winners of the last few years.
