The bull that is used as your herd sire makes a huge impact on your program. He accounts for half of the genetics in your entire calf crop. Make sure that good genetics are playing a role in your herd sire selection.
Last year we had a slew of High Caliber SRC calves. We have been very pleased with them. High Caliber is a bull we own in partnership with Mike MacLeod of Split Rock Cedar Ranch. High Caliber is Top Caliber x NN Sarita, a WS Jamakizm daughter. Sarita was a full sister to NN Texas Sunset, a cow we were able to acquire in 2016.
For 2017, we are looking forward to our Tuff Thunderbolt SRC calves. Thunderbolt is a Cowboy Tuff Chex x 7LS Miss Gambler. We should see these calved starting in May.
