Captain Morgan was the talk of the Simmental breed when he sold for a record $190,000 in the Sunny Valley Bull sale.  We are excited to have acquired an in-herd semen interest and he will see heavy use in our program.  Captain Morgan is a powerful herdsire with a ton of rib shape, testicle, and is extremely sound.  Not only is he a great individual but he is backed by a productive and powerful dam with a great udder.  We are excited to incorporate this great herd sire into our program in a big way.

Wheatland STOUT 930W was our pick of the 2010 Wheatland bull sale where he was the $34,000 second high seller. STOUT blends a modest 84 lb. birthweight and weaned off his 2-year-old dam with an adjusted weaning weight of 940 lbs. We believe he is a valuable genetic package and offers a sterling pedigree backed by generations of predictable cow families. He is sired by the outcross sire Wheatland Bull 680S, his dam is a full sib to the $44,000 Wheatland Red Ace 747T and his grand dam is Wheatland Lady 902J who has averaged $18,807 on 13 sons sold to date.  Stout set records when he was only the second bull in history to win back to back Canadian Western Agribition Grand Champion bull titles in 2010 and 2011 and was also the 2011 National Champion bull at the National show at Farmfair International.  At the 2011 Agribition sale 10 units of semen sold for $1,000/straw to Sun Rise Simmentals.
