JAD PRUDENT LAD 6157 is the first of several maternal half sibs out of SHOSHONE PRUDENCE 6157 that will be used in our herd to intensify the maternal goodness found in the Shoshone Angus strain. As an individual he was simply superb. He was always a perfect gentleman and respectful, he never cared about fighting but he posessed tremendous libido and was as masculine and virile as any bull I’ve been associated with. A true breeder bull he exuded quality from his beautiful Angus head to his perfect feet. He was slick-haired, clean sheathed and structurally excellent. His sons are stamped in his image and one of the finest displays of mothering ability I’ve witnessed was by the first Prudent Lad daughter to calve this spring. We have used 8 sons back in our program and are planning to add at least 3 more. Prudent Lad is deceased and semen is not available.
OCC EMBLAZON 854E Sire of JAD MATRIX M604
JAD MATRIX M604 Matrix is co owned with Pharo Cattle Company of Cheyenne Wells, CO and Evan Bligh of Martin, SD. He was the top selling bull in the Fall 2003 PCC sale at Burlington, CO. We brought Matrix back into our herd through A.I. because of the strength of the cows behind him, his structural excellence and his masculinity. He has done an excellent job. Matrix is a sire of calving ease and tremendous performance in a well balanced attractive package. He is a producer of very high quality semen. $15/straw $30/certificate.
EXTRA has been a perfect fit to go along with our ‘less problems more profit’ mantra. He’s not an extraordinary sire in anyway but he just quietly produces cattle that work time and again. He is a real calving ease bull with 225 calves reported at a 98 ratio. He has 225 calves at weaning with a 99 ratio and 126 calves at yearling with a 101 ratio. Two herds have 50 daughters with 149 progeny that have ratioed 101 at weaning. He was an exceptionally quiet bull that you could walk up to and scratch any time any place and his progeny display that same disposition. Extra is deceased but semen is available at $15/straw and $30/certificate.
POCO GRANDE is co owned with Pharo Cattle Company of Cheyenne Wells, CO and George and Cathy Sandberg of Roseburg, OR. He was the top selling bull in the Spring 2006 PCC sale at Harrison, NE. He was outstanding as an individual. He posessed a great combination of structural correctness with muscle and masculinity. His dam is one of our favorite Cole Creek bred females. We were only able to collect a small amount of semen before he got on the truck heading for Oregon. Semen $15 Certificates $30.
We never got a good picture of FULL RUT. We bought him sight unseen based entirely on Greg Golden’s high opinion of the bulls mother who is the 909 cow that has gone on to distinguish herself as one of the all time great Cole Creek cows. She is youthful at 18 years of age and being flushed. Full Rut sires real beef cattle with performance, rib, and muscle and quiet dispositions. He and his little sister have been great additions to our program and illustrate the value of buying cattle from someone who knows their cows and lets the environment sort them. FULL RUT is deceased and semen is limited $20/straw. $40/certificate
This bull is fertile, prolific, balanced, and sound. His mother is a model cow in her type with a strong maternal ancestry. His calves are 97 at birth 102 at weaning and 103 at a year. We used him on heifers in 2010.
SK10 is the bull I intended to carry on the Extra line here. He is a calving ease bull. With good early growth and thickness. His first heifer calves are excellent and his full sister is an excellent cow in our herd. We used him two seasons and then sold him to Jon and Stephanie Cogdill of Chadron.
Lad S2164 is one of several sons we have used out of the Lucy 2164 cow. They include his full brother LX-T2164, his inbred son LUSK U2164, and his maternal half brother LUKE W2164. He is the largest framed of the Prudent Lad sons. He is a very clean made attractive bull. We have only calved two daughters but I am pleased with them.
Last year 6306 rose to prominence in our herd because of his progeny. I expect that this year will be 6150’s turn to step into the spotlight. He is the ‘beef bull’ of the Prudent Lad sons siring that extra volume and muscle that turns grass into pounds. His mother was an excellent cow. She had the perfect quantity and quality of milk to raise a big bloomy calf while taking good care of herself at the same time.
