Fall Calves

Postby Boot Jack Bulls » Tue Aug 22, 2017 8:31 pm

We started fall calving on Aug 4th and are off to a great start! All calves are sired by JFCC Silverado, our NBAR Hamley son.

There were 2 more bulls born on 8/20 that I have to get pictures of yet. So far, all have been vigorous and energetic calves. All were 75 to 90 pounds with no assistance required. We are pretty pleased with how Silverado is crossing on our Limi and Angus matriarchs.

Now we just need to find the next red Limi bull to put in our rotation! The red angus experiment is working so far, but we still want to have plenty of red Limis around and don't plan to go all to Lim-flex....

Super cute buggers. Glad you're not going all limflex or black which seems to be getting more popular. I've got a fullblood heifer coming here in a month due in march pretty excited about that.

We were managers of a multiple breed farm, including Red Angus, "Sunrise Farms" years ago. My husband went to a Red Angus convention?? and visited with a Boot Jack Red Angus farm - is that you? Ken was really impressed with your cattle.

The reds are still our bread and butter, and are my personal favorites. That's part of the reason we decided to take a leap of faith on this bull. We like the Lim-flex females, but this way, we can keep them red (most of them anyway!).

That would have been Boot Jack Ranch. They were a bigger deal in the red Angus, and dispersed in the early 2000's, just before we got into the registered Limi deal. We have a lake on our property named Boot Jack lake, so that is the only reason we went with the name. We mostly stick to our Limis and have a few select Angus to cross with them. Really, if the Angus did not cross so fantastically with the Limis, we would not have the Angus either.

Around here, we consider fall calving starting 9-1 - but, that is also reflected in the show ring. "Senior" calves' ages range from 9-1 to 12-31. June, July & August are considered summer calves.
