This is our new Herd Bull we purchased from T&S Strnad Charolais in Kansas. He is a JDJ Smokester J1377 grandson and his mother is an LT Ledger 0332 daughter. He is Homozygous Polled with an 80 lbs. birth weight. He grew to almost 1400 lbs. for a yearling weight. We feel he will produce some outstanding females. His sons should be some of the thickest bulls around. When they scanned the bulls that day he had a 19.58 square inch Ribeye with a 3.10 IMF Score. His Ribeye EPD is in the top 1% of the Breed. We feel this bull has so many good things to offer to the Beef Industry.
LT Venture 3198 was one of the feature bulls sold in Lindskov-Thiel Ranch 2014 Bull Sale. His dam (9219) is a beautiful and very productive cow. He is a maternal brother to LT Sundance 2251. We have been using Venture 3198 for a few years now. We really like his low birth weight and good growth in his calves. He has sired some of our best set calves and most popular calves the last couple years.
WC Milestone 5223 was Wright Charolais high selling bull in there 2016 Bull Sale selling for $125,000. He was also a member of there 2016 National Western Stock Show Grand Champion Pen of 3 bulls. We have been using Milestone for a couple years now and we really like the eye appeal and performance he stamps in his calves. He has sired some of our best and most popular calves the last couple years. We will continue to use Milestone in our AI program.
LT Authority 7229 was the high selling bull in the 2018 Lindskov-Thiel Ranch Bull Sale selling for $160,000. This bull combines some of the best genetics from two of the top breeding programs in the United States (Lindskov-Thiel Ranch and DeBruycker Charolais). Authority has an outcross pedigree that works well on our whole herd. He also has a low birth weight with excellent growth from birth to weaning along with really good EPD's. We will be using Authority in our AI program for many years.
Ledger is the bull that attracted so much attention at the recent LT Bull Sale. He ended up leaving the ring that day as the highest selling bull in the breed in 2011 selling for a record $105,000. Ledger comes from the great Brenda cow family and they have recorded many Dams of Distinction. He is also sired by the great LT Bluegrass 4017 Pld. Ledger's attractive eye appeal, performance, scrotal development, and the cow family he comes from make it a really easy decision to use him in any A.I. Program.
