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 great little bull out of Sugar Cain and a 34 inch zebu cow. He was born April 7, 2013 and was 18in/23lbs. He has turned black but still filling out nicely. He looks all bull, just waiting to see how he finishes. 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 a great one. We think he is the pick of the litter. He is out of Rascal (29 inch zebu) and our great cow Sugr Plum. He was born April 30, 2013 and was 20in/23lbs. His mother has given us some of the nicest calves. They are all still in the herd and great producers. We hope he produces as well as his sisters. He was only 30 inches tall at 1 year old. Pictured as a calf above, and at 17 months old below. 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 awesome. That is all I can say. Awesome. He is out of Rascal (29in zebu bull) and Sugar Bottom (35 in). Born June 22, 2013, he was 21in/28lbs. He is super fleshy. Great muscle and great color. He is really going to look awesome next year at 2 yrs old. He has a full sister born in 2014 that is just as nice as him. She has a little less white but also awesome. We are keeping an eye on this one.
Choncho, Sept 16th. Running with a few cows.
Tyson's TKO, really came on this summer. He was a little rangey as a calf but has filled out nicely. 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). He was born July 6, 2013, was 22in/21lbs. 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 will be sire to alot of calves in 2015. He has been sold to New Mexico.
