Convenience was a crowd favorite while on display in the yards in Denver, and was second in his class in the hill bull show. He puts together two of our favorite cow families on the top and bottom side of his pedigree. He was only the second natural calf out of his young dam, 413B, and after seeing him and his full sister, we decided it was a no-brainer to put 413B into the ET program here at the ranch.

We believe this bull checks all of the boxes when it comes to his complete design, stout muscle pattern and soundness on the move. He also provides a balanced EPD profile with outstanding numbers in BW, Calving ease, Udder Scores, Sustained Cow Fertility and Scortal measurements. As a yearling, his scrotal measured 41 cm.

We used him heavily this year on our cow herd, and are excited to see his first calf crop in the spring of 2019.

This bull needs no introductions! Carlee Meeks has shown him many times this year, bringing home some purple banners. He was recently named Supreme Champion Bull at the Nebraska State Fair to wrap up the summer. Sensation mixes the calving ease, vigor and growth potential of Churchill Sensation, with the powerfully made Ladysport Dew cow family from Ward's cow herd. The udders in his pedigree are flawless, and we are excited to see what this bull will do produce!

We bought Vincent as a yearling calf to breed our yearling heifers. After seeing his first calf crop in 2011, Vincent got to breed a lot more than just heifers this year. The calves are coming really nice, and we have been quite pleased with his first and second calf crops. He was out breeding fall cows, and I was able to catch him in a pose with my phone for this picture. As you can see, for running with so many cows in the last 12 months, he is definately an easy keeping, athletic bull. Vincent's mother was one of the feature lots in the KJ sale last October, and sold to Hoffman Herefords in Thedford, NE. We are proud to own her first calf, and think this cow family has a great future.

We found Jed on a trip to Colorado, and boy was that a worth while trip. Jed is out of a standout cow from Ned and Jan Ward's herd, and a really good Boulder son. We have very high expectations of this young sire. He is complete out-cross for us, and has the style, correctness, performance and markings we are looking for. Look for a nice fall heifer calf out of Jed that sells March 29, 2011 in the Tegtmeier Sale.
