    We purchased a controlling interest in Beral of Wye in the summer of 2011 — after using him AI for a couple of years. He is having a tremendous impact on our program. Beral is intensely linebred.

Beral is a small frame bull with tremendous thickness and fleshing ability. His birth weight EPD is in the top 1% of the Angus breed, while his energy value ($EN) is in the top 2%. At one year of age, Beral had 37 cm scrotal circumference, as well as 6.35% IMF. Beral is co-owned with Black Queen Angus Farm.

His birth weight and calving ease direct EPDs are both in the top 2% of the breed. Magua’s energy value ($EN) is also in the top 2% of the breed.

      When we show people our herd sires, we often refer to this bull as our “Longevity” bull. His perfect-uddered dam produced until she was 18 years old. Priority is a linebred bull sired by Pied Piper (born in 1979). He has Rito 149 and Rito 707, along with similar Wye breeding, on both sides of his pedigree. Priority had GREAT ultrasound scores and measurements — and should work very well in grass-fed beef programs. His $EN value is in the top 2% of the Angus breed.

     We still refer to Moderator as “The King of Calving Ease.” He is in the top 3% of the Angus breed for birth weight EPD. He has been used on thousands of commercial heifers with excellent results. Many calving ease bulls lack substance and thickness, but not this one. Moderator was a very deep-bodied bull. His energy value is in the top 2% of the Angus breed. Moderator will produce some efficient, low-maintenance, long-lasting females. He was still working at 12 years of age. Co-owned with Totton Angus Ranch.

   Machine is an extremely stout and powerful fullblood Lowline. Some refer to Lowline Angus as miniature Angus. I don’t like that term because it gives the wrong connotation. Lowline Angus are the real deal, and I believe they have a definite place in today’s beef industry. We have used Machine on our 6-frame cows to produce thick, easy-fleshing, 3-frame offspring — in one generation. That saves years of time! Machine is also being used to produce predictable, high-quality grass-finished beef. He is co-owned with Two Rivers Organic and Dakota Lowlines.

     Bruce is a fullblood Lowline bull that we have added to our program. I don’t think I have ever seen a bull of any breed with a disposition as good as this bull has. Bruce’s sire (pictured) is one of the all-time winningest Lowline bulls in Australian history. Bruce’s dam is a very structurally correct cow that was just recently imported from Australia. Bruce is a well-muscled bull with excellent feet and legs. He should work great to reduce frame size in one generation and/or in grass finishing programs. He would be an excellent choice for use on first-calf heifers. Bruce is co-owned with James Rogers from Wyoming.
