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:

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:

Many thanks to Lisa & Mike Hunt of Rockin H Ranch in Schulenberg for purchasing my entry at the Miss South Texas Futurity at the South Texas Beefmaster Breeders Buccaneer Sale in Corpus Christi. Also, thanks to Billy Welkener of Kenedy for his purchase of my heifer by Catalyst. The sale had some excellent cattle and was a very good sale. It was also a great time for all who attended the party on Friday night. I still have twelve registered Beefmaster heifers left to sell. They will be turning one year old next month. Let me know and I will send you their weaning weights and copies of their registration certificates.

We will have three of our top Beefmaster open heifers for sale in the South Texas Buccaneer Classic Sale to be held in Corpus Christi, Texas on Saturday, October 9, 2010. All three are outstanding heifers, but one has been nominated for the Miss South Texas Heifer Futurity and her picture is shown. She is out of Captain Lucey and RTH 14/7, a Forty-Four daughter. She was born on 11/08/09 and weaned at 640# on 6/19/2010. She is one of the best heifers of this year’s class. Come see all of them in Corpus or give me a call if you have any questions about Beefmaster cattle.
