What good does it do to have a nice herd of miniature cattle if you don't have a great bull. We are always on the lookout for a small bull. While size is important, we also would like to have conformation and disposition in there too. Splash on some color and you have it made.
Simple and easy....RIGHT!? Not hardly. It seems like it is getting harder to find bulls we like better than the ones we already have. I know they are out there, everyone just hangs on to the good bulls.
2014 Breeding Bulls
Red Hot, born in 2012, is pictured above as a yearling. He is real flashy. He won't be the smallest bull we have used but he is a looker. We are going to put him with cows for 2014 breeding season.This guy is really put together.
Future Herd Sires
Since we are trying to raise the smallest and healthiest miniature cattle, we are always looking for small bulls. If we can't find them, we raise them. All of these yearling bulls were in with cows for the 2014 breeding season. We can hardly wait to see what happens.
TMZ, a 2013 bull calf. A Sugar Cain son out of a 34 inch zebu cow. If he stays under 36 inches, this guy will do wonders for our herd. He is solid. Deep bodied and well put together. We would like more color but if mated to colored cows, should throw some good ones. Just have to wait.
Woody is another 2013 bull calf with alot of potential. He is out of Sugar Plum by Rascal. He is one of the oldest bull calves we kept and still the smallest. No picture does him justice. He is a great little bull. Again, a waiting game.
Woody on Sept 17 2014
Choncho is another 2013 bull calf we are betting on. He is solid, nice bone and great conformation. He is out of a great cow line with his mother, Sugar Bottom, only 35 inches, and Rascal. We are keeping an eye on this one.
Choncho, Sept 16th. Running with a few cows.
Tyson's TKO, had to change his name....since he is turning into a knock out. It will be tough waiting on this guy. He has great conformation, color and size...his sire is Rascal (29inch) and his dam Pepper (33inch). This guy will be small, just have to wait for him to mature. His speckles and points are brindle. He was the last bull calf born in 2013, but he is totally unrelated to our females so he will make a great out cross on some super heifers. He should throw nothin but color.
Tyson's TKO, Sept 2014.
Hombre, this brindle spotted bull is now hree years old. We need to update the picture, above is his yearling picture. He is really filling out nicely. He has the color and conformation I like. It is fun to watch these bulls grow out. He is 38 inches tall. He is our clean up bull for 2014. He is in with the majority of the cows. He had some great calves in 2013, but we didn't breed with him so no calves in 2014 from him. He sired a wide variety of colors in 2013, no a single solid colored calf. He has been sold to New Mexico.
