Have you used boulder in the past? I like our GC son a lot he's almost two. I just bought two more GC heifers from Todd. I've also got one GC heifer that I'm getting AI'd to new vision right now.



I have not but a just bought a bull last fall in the Blackwater sale. I think Boulder is a great sire, he progeny has already topped two sales this year. SVF and BWCC @ 50k each.

BWCC Boulder 192D13 (great performance and has 8 epd's in top 10%) Going to put him on some cows this spring.

I have some GC embryo calves due next month, they are out of a Summit Real Deal cow, looking forward to them!

I’m going to be using
Connealy v-eight
Connealy United
Var discovery
Var eldorado

Still undecided on what to use on heifers. Was going to use confidence plus. These are on my list
RR easy express
Connealy comrade
Fortress


Genex rep told me Confidence Plus stopped producing. Our first calves of Confidence Plus just hit the ground a week ago and they have more bone and width than I expected for a +14 CED bull, but most of ours have not been short gestation, full term mostly. Very pleased so far with them. I was at Connealys sale when United and Comrade sold. Looked over the United bull and liked him very well but never have used him. Didn't look at Comrade. What are your thoughts on United and Comrade?

My neighbor has used Chisum and they grew very well but he wouldn't retain any. Used him as a terminal bull, his herd is all Ohlde based but Chisum crossed very well. Do you have any milking daughters? Udders?

Used Westwind on some registered angus cows to produce limflex and wanted to keep double homozygous and keep 50/50 blood. The oldest cows/bulls are 3 now and have been very pleased with the structure, feet, udders, and mothering. Do you reccomend any other purebred double homozygous limousin bulls? Would like to get another line started to cross together.

Well Runl Stetson is a darn good bull but not carried by major ai studs you can get him from Grassroots genetics. From major AI studs King Wulf from ABS is probably one of the best in the major studs. I do know Stetson has Cole Wulf Hunt in his pedigree as does Westwind, King Wulf would be my pick for you. Hope that helps, Joe

I would not recommend United for heifers as my rep suggested me. On my gelbvieh heifers I had some around 80 lbs. the head and shoulders were shaped nicely, but still a little bigger than I want my heifers having. The oldest one is right at 1 month, so can’t tell much. So far the are my most impressive calves. Incredibly thick, and stand outs over the other calves. I have reknown, eldorado, and chisum calves on the ground around the same age.
I have some bred to comrade, but none on the ground. I plan on breeding quite a few cows to United in April.

Haven’t ordered anything yet. SS Niagara, possibly Fortress or Combination, Broken Bow on heifers. If I AI cows we will most likely go with Connealy Mentor and Connealy Spur.

We have some new stuff this year, based solely on finishing them out.

3F Epic and Byergo Blackstone.

Our flushes, for maternal will be MGR Treasure (sexed) and a SAV that we haven’t quite pondered hard enough yet. I’m waiting to get the Genomics back on one of our heifers. Her EPDs aren’t all there. May flush her to our Styles Up N Coming because he makes some nice looking females too.

Have some other stuff we bought a few of. Some from Game On, SAV Sensation, SAV Resource, etc... because we’ve used them in the past and like their calves. I know the stop at Herbster, on way down to Byergo resulted in some other Semen purchased but I haven’t seen what was bought yet.

Still doing some research, but this is the list I'm pondering so far:
LD Capitalist 316 (Heifers)
Connealy Legendary
CTS Remedy
TEX Playbook (looking for a Payweight son)
Ellingston Homestead

Need to look up these bulls a little more and see what they are producing out there.

I may also use a freightliner. My favorite herd sire ever was out of freightliner. I know he's not a huge name but I loved that herd sire out of him. He was awesome. He finally got old and I held onto him a year too long and he lost it. Broke three gates and went nuts. I still miss him to this day.
