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:

Thank goodness for the rain and good cattle prices October 2014

It is hard to believe that I have not entered a post for a year – my apologies.   It has been a tough year in the brush country of South Texas, but we have finally had some good rains the past few weeks and the grass has turned green again.  Also, cattle prices are higher which has been encouraging to all of us who are in this business.  I have sold all of my open heifers that were born last winter and only have three twenty-two month old bulls left to sell.  Two are at the ranch:  one is a Fabulous Las Vegas son and the other is a son of Colonel Tom, one of our herd bulls.  I also have a Logan son that will be in the Collier Farms Bull sale in November.   I am enclosing some pictures made in August 2014 of some of my heifers and the Fabulous Las Vegas son #6/3 before the rains came.  Please notice the scarcity of grass.

 

 Should you ever have any questions about the bulls we now have for sale or our Registered Beefmaster operation at Rancho Tres Hijos, please call me on my cellular, 713-898-8044.  Thanks, Bub Epley

July 2013 – Young Beefmaster bulls ready for sale

Surely seems like it was just yesterday that I was writing this blog, but it is now almost a year.  We have survived the severe South Texas drought and have recently had some good rains.  The grass is green again and the  cattle are happy.  I have 4 excellent Beefmaster bulls around 20 months of age that are tested and ready for sale.  Please look at the pictures below that I have taken recently of three of the bulls.  Look up the performance pedigrees on the BBU website, and then give me a call at 713-898-8044 to talk about these bulls..  If you are looking for a really good Beefmaster bull as a herd sire, you should look closely at these bulls.

Thanks go to Gary Schmidt and his family for purchasing our Beefmaster bull #10/19.  This bull is a son of Catalyst 729 who has done an outstanding job of producing good Beefmaster cattle.  We hope that the bull will be happy in his new home and do an outstanding job for Gary as he builds his Beefmaster herd.

Registered Beefmaster Bulls for Sale

Originally posted: April 28th, 2011 by Bub

I have two good bulls for sale at the ranch.  One is a three year old that I used last year and kept as a spare for this year.  My breeding season is almost complete and I have not needed him.   He is a son of Sierra Forty-Four which we purchased from Rocker Ranch.  His registration is #C962534 and he is a solid red with a white star face.  I also have a solid dun bull that is 2 1/2 years old that I also held back.  He is really outstanding and is a half brother to Forty-Four Magnum.  His registration is #C981916.  Both bulls have been ultrasounded at one year of age and are guaranteed to breed.  You can look them up at the BBU website,  www.Beefmasters.org or please give me a call at 713-898-8044 or an email at awe3@3hijos.com for more information.
