Beefmaster heifers for sale at the ranch – November 2016

solid red Fabulous Las Vegas Heifer #C944935

 

We have now weaned, culled, and sorted all of our 2016 calf crop, and have 11 very good heifers for sale at the ranch.  We also have plans to enter several additional heifers in Beefmaster sales in San Antonio and Houston in 2017.  All heifers are registered, have had all of their vaccinations, and will be ready to breed in late spring of 2017.  I am attaching a few pictures of some of them to represent what we have at the ranch.  I have priced them beginning at $2500 each so I don’t believe they will last long.  If you need some good replacement Beefmaster heifers, please call me, 713-898-8044, or email me, awe3@3hijos.com, and I will send you a complete list of them with their BBU registration numbers. You are always welcome to visit the ranch 5 miles from Tilden, Texas, and take a look at them.  You can also see our herd bulls and the dams of the calves.  Thanks, Bub

Beefmaster Bulls for sale at the ranch – July 2016

2016 has been a great year in South Texas.  We have been blessed with rain and our cattle are probably in the best shape in years.  We kept 18 bulls out of our 2015 calf crop that we felt were good enough to keep and develop.  Of those we sent 6 to Cain Cattle Company in Mississippi for their bull test.  They will be sold in the Cain Cattle Sale to be held in Pickens, Mississippi, on October 8, 2017.  We also sent 6 bulls to the Beef on Forage Bull Test in Central Texas.  So far, only one bull has been eliminated from this very strict test, so we are hopeful that the other 5 will make the final cut and sell in the annual Beef on Forage Sale to be held in Brenham, Texas, on October 15, 2016.  That leaves us with 6 Beefmaster bulls that are about 18-19 months old and that we have raised mostly in the South Texas brush at our ranch. The bulls were sent to the Livc Oak Performance Bull Test in June of this year and performed well.  They have all been fertility tested and certified to be good breeders.   We now have them back at the ranch and they are for sale.  If they do not sell before January 2017, we will put them in the Live Oak Bull Sale at Three Rivers, TX.  If you are looking for a good young bull, with excellent genetics, outstanding EPD’s and ultrasound data, please come by our ranch where they were raised and take a look at them.  We will also be able to show you the dams of the bulls as well as our herd bulls.  Please give us a call  or email to send you the details about the bulls and answer any questions or to schedule a visit. Below are pictures of the bulls at the ranch:

Fabulous Las Vegas

I was fortunate to obtain some Fabulous Las Vegas semen before he went to Mexico.  I have been using it very successfully for the past three years and have sold two of his sons at the past two Houston Futurities.  I have retained one son, named Lucky Las Vegas,  and put him to work as a clean up bull in our breeding program.  I plan to collect him after this breeding season.  I  have five sons that will be for sale this summer as 17-18 month old bulls.  If you do not remember seeing Lucky Las Vegas on the cover of the March 2015 Beefmaster Cowman, a picture is below:

Beefmaster calves at Rancho Tres Hijos

We are pleased that we have had 100 Beefmaster calves within the 60 day calving interval from December 12, 2011 to February 11, 2012.  We were pretty busy at the ranch during this time.  Approximately 60% of the calves born were AI calves that were all sequenced to be born on December 21, 2011.   We are very pleased with the quality of these calves which were sired from semen from Logan, Rushman, Fabulous Las Vegas, CF 224/5, Jack of Diamonds, Pride Two, High Country, El Duque, and Encore, as well as the 40% which were sired by our herd bulls, Brush Country, Duke’s Son, Rojo Bueno, and Orr 916.  We invite you to visit the ranch and come look at these calves and their Beefmaster mother cows.
