As many know I was not planning on having a sale this year. However, after several requests I put together this online sale. The cattle are pictured in their working clothes and were taken directly from the pasture; they are not clipped, dyed, or tranquilized for pictures. These cattle have not been fed for show or catalog shape. They are functional cattle and what you see is what you get. But you can be assured that they will work for you and not fall apart for lack of feed when you take them home.
Fairview Kingpin 57H was brought here from Canada topping his sale offering in 2021. He wasn’t cheap but he is worth the effort. I spent many hours reviewing sale catalog after another and monitoring the Canadian sales that year before settling on Kingpin. Settle is the wrong word; he has been a bonus. He was sought out for being homozygous polled and dark dark red. The bonus is that his first calves are the heaviest calves raised on the farm in many years, during drought conditions. Expect all of his calves to be thick, and dark red. No semen will be sold this year but there will be embryos and pregnancies available. In addition, semen will be available for each open heifer purchased.“65” (JS PL Cherie S5 65): Along with Kingpin, 65 offspring and descendants will be featured. Many of you have followed my posts in the past and know that much of my herd is built around this great cow. She is sired by JS Pluto (semen sells also), who is sired by JS Ares, a calf I bought from Vernon Hoffman many years ago. Ares’ sire, Iowa Darius G137, is the result of crossing Bold, Iglhoff, and Argonne, and he won several carcass awards in Iowa as a fullblood. Vernon was always proud of his carcass achievements, but he never sold any semen out of that bull- I was extremely lucky to purchase Ares. Ares’ dam is out of Zeus and a full sister to G807 and G809, Sir Arnold’s Image, and so on (Siegfried x Maureen). Pluto then adds another shot of Siegfried through a full bother to Siegfried’s Joseph (and IMO a better brother, Siegfried’s Jules). Pluto then brings in Pilot and Poncho through BGR Poncho (semen also sells). On her dam’s side she brings in none other than Great Guns Cherie, Bel Western Union 5Z, Romulus, and Hamlet. This cow simply never misses, and I have 6 working daughters in my herd out of 3 different sires. She is the dam of the high selling cow in last year’s Midwest Fleck Event sale, the dam of Adolf, and the granddam of the D203 donor cow at SOT, which produced the high selling heifers in the Back to Grass sale in Texas and another top-notch heifer in this year’s Magnolia Classic. There is a live lot (the featured Lot 1 granddaughter), embryos (sexed with Xpress), embryos (daughter’s with FSS Polled Hendrix), and semen (JS Pluto and BGR Poncho).
Lots are live now!
