Over the last few years we have added some serious performance to our walking herd sires by adding sons of LT Ledger, Pleasant Dawn Chisum, and Pleasant Dawn MVP to our herd. We are really looking forward to see how each of these sires will complement each other and impact our herd with their performance, docility, and polled traits.

In addition to our walking sires we also selectively AI to a number of sires to achieve specific matings and diversity within our herd including Circle Cee Legend, Pleasant Dawn Chisum, High Bluff Diesel, and more.

We purchased Gatsby in 2020 to bring some outcross genetics into our herd to breed with daughters from our senior herdsires. He boasts a proven pedigree going back to Silverstream Geddes on the top side and a 14 year old LHD Cigar daughter on the bottom. Gatsby is an eye-catching bull with tons of natural thickness and a wide top on a great set of legs and a gentle disposition.

This exciting herdsire comes straight from our own ET program, combining the proven genetics of our CEE 125Y donor cow and our walking herdsire Clover 1C. In 2018 we had 3 bull calves born out of our donor cow CEE 125Y – the dam of Circle Cee Legend. We chose to keep this guy around for natural service and AI use within our own purebred herd while the other two half brothers were the two top sellers in our 2019 bull sale. He was a standout since day 1 with his length, depth, and thickness and we are very excited to see what this powerful 3/4 sibling of Legend can do in our herd!

In 2018 we went looking for a very specific bull and Easy-Boy was the answer we were looking for. We wanted a new calving ease sire that we could confidently use on heifers or heavier birthweight cows, with a good temperament, without compromising on performance. We wanted a bull with a proven pedigree and eventually landed on this Pleasant Dawn MVP son from Turnbull Charolais. MVP has proven himself with staggering numbers being in the top 4% of the breed for calving ease and top 1% for weaning weight, yearling weight, milk, and total maternal! We knew we wanted a son of his and believe Easy-Boy has the potential to check all the same boxes as his sire.

Classic combines all the traits of a great performance bull and has the numbers to back it up, falling into the top 2% of the Canadian Charolais herd for weaning weight and yearling weight EPD. Throw in a great disposition, thick hair, solid feet, and top it all off with being homozygous polled and you can see why he was the high seller at the 2016 Pleasant Dawn Charolais annual bull sale and has been a consistent producer in our purebred program for years.

We purchased Clover as a calf from the Jordan River dispersal sale in December 2015. Clover combines the proven genetics of TR MR Firewater and LT Ledger who have both had a tremendous influence on the Charolais breed. As a calf Clover stood out to us as a thick, well-muscled, and docile bull and he continues to impress with his stoutness the older he gets. Over the last few years Clover has had a greater and greater influence in our herd due to his proven ability to provide calving ease without sacrificing performance which can be seen in our new herdsire Saddleridge Freighter 1F.
