Each year we welcome a new class of calves that are a result of both our artificial insemination and internal breeding program.
2018 AI Calves
Black Friday (TLBA #: CAI313126*) is a 6 month old heifer calf that is the result of breeding our own Charlotte Leigh and one of the industry’s most famous homozygous black bull Saddlehorn. This all black longhorn calf was born on a Friday and we couldn’t resist giving her a name representative of her color and birthday.
Southern Whisper (TLBA #:CI313125*) is a 6 month old calf that came out of blue roan predominately Butler cow acquired at the 2018 Eddie Wood Sale. Her sire is the colorful bull LAR Smoke’N owned by the Azinger / Carpenter Partnership. This calf is 20% larger than our other two calves born at the same time and her white patches are roaning out making for a beautiful color. We are excited to watch how this outcross calf will grow in the coming years.
Rain Slicker (TLBA #: BI96421* ) When we acquired the elite KC Jubilee, she was definitely bred. The question was “Who was the sire?”. We let the science of DNA answer this and the answer confirmed we’d put this bull calf in our prospect program. Rainslicker is a homozygous black over a wild gene bull calf who’s sire is the homozygous black over a wild gene bull HL Ebony Son of Zeus. This sire is young featuring great genetics and a very flat horn structure. We are hopeful Rainslicker’s horns will follow the rest of his traits and become another bull in our program.
Pantuflas (TLBA #:CI311687*) is a 10 month old CV Call of Duty heifer calf whose dam is our own Silver Harriet. Her sire is a multi HSC championship winner and produces stunning roan cattle. Born white with subtle roan socks, she has roan’d out completely. Those socks are the basis of her name.
Schneewittchen (Schneevy) (TLBA #:C308919) is a 13 month old Colonel 50 heifer calf whose dam is our own Coach Reflection BW Silver. We are adding her to our predominantly Butler out-cross breeding program when she becomes of age. Her white coloring has slightly roan’d and her horns are very thick and lateral.
