Do you have any Torque calves on the ground? If so what's your impression thus far?

We don’t have any on the ground yet, I saw the bull last year when he was at Strommen Ranch in North Dakota and was really impressed with the bull.

how many Durango daughters do you have? Do you still have that bull?

I think me AI tech might still have a couple straws in the tank I might see if he will hold them for me but I'm not sure how long it will be tell I'd like to use him again because both my heifers are sired by him and if I've only got a few straws to use I don't want to use them on a cow

Just the one all the rest were bull calves. Yep will probably use him as clean up on the commercials this year as his last year then I'm putting a fullblood on all the cows. I'd take a close look at Tested A250 looks like a pretty good herf

I just picked up Broken Bow and Hickok. I was told that because he stopped producing for a bit, the demand may make him hard to come by, come spring. I had to grab Hickok today for my donor cow (letting her calve to him). So I just grabbed everything we’d need this next breeding season. I also grabbed an Aviator son to try out. With everything else still in tanks, we should have all our semen for spring. I feel like I’m winning at the moment.
