Since Renown sold in our 2016 sale to Ter-Ron Farms and Canadian Sires for $75,000, Renown has become a big time herd sire both in Canada and South America. His sons and daughters have topped sales across the land, including a $25,000 high selling bred heifer at MRL last fall. His sons are full of muscle and performance with foot and leg structure that is second to none. Renown adds one more stunning maternal cow to Reckoning’s pedigree! Envious 147X is a ranch and visitor favorite, that is in our donor program. His first daughters are now milking and they are big bodied, moderate females with the impeccable udders we expected. Use these sons with confidence for maternal advancement and performance.
Foreigner was the high seller of his calf crop at $73,000. He offers near perfect feet, frame moderation and extra muscle shape in his progeny. His dam is a favorite at U2, because she is an easy fleshing female that is still in production at 11 years of age. Foreigner offers an outcross pedigree that goes back to Anexa 333N, one of our top cows ever . The Foreigner sons are amazing footed, they come out small and then grow!
Entourage 282B is Reckonings younger full brother. He was our second high seller in 2015 to Weber Red Angus in South Dakota for $58,000 1⁄2 int. His calves have been awesome here and at Webers. Both Tim and Jason have stated the positive impact Entourage has made on their bull sale and their cow herd! Entourage will add performance, bone, length of body, muscle and will improve feet. Like his nephew Riff, Entourage enforces surprising calving ease for a bull with so much performance. His daughters are some of our top young producers laying down flawless udders and raising herd bulls of their own! Entourage ranks in the top 1% of the breed in WW , YW and TM
Malbec was selected by Genex in our 2017 sale for $46,000 . He is a moderate framed, very complete herdbull with generous depth , eye appeal and superior muscle pattern. He has established himself as a dependable elite calving ease sire with tremendous shape and performance in his calves. His dam is a very popular cow in our donor program. We are super impressed with his progeny and will be using Malbec in a big way in the future.
Heston is a herd bull Rob Holowaychuck selected for us at Howe’s sale in 2017. When Rob called it was very obvious how “taken” he was with this bull and his dam. We used him successfully on both heifers and cows. He has done a marvelous job siring his type and stamping his progeny with his impressive muscle shape, depth and character! His female calves look just as strong and he definitely adds performance as you will see in this strong sire group. Hesston provides an outcross opportunity to much of our herd and bulls our customers have purchased in the past.
Riff was our high seller in 2016 for $102,500. Semen packages went everywhere from Montana to Texas in the US and everyone we’ve talked to “love their Riff calves”. Y-Coulee’s high seller last year was a Riff son. Riff is as unique a herd sire as you’ll find with so much character and natural thickness all wrapped up in a super appealing dark cherry red hair coat. He surprisingly has amazing CE potential. His dam is a front pasture favorite that contributes her donor quality and balance to give the female progeny that cut above! The 2019 set of Riff sons has one problem, quantity – there’s not enough of them!
Our pick from our good friends at Y-Coulee’s 2016 bull sale where he was the high seller. After touring the cow herd and seeing his strong productive dam, Cole decided that 653C was the dark red Authentic son that we needed to own. Since then, we have been impressed with his breeding ability and blown away with the consistent bone, hip shape, big foot and Angus character he passes onto his progeny. Some of our stoutest bulls are in this sire group! His heifer calves appear to be cowy young females that will turn into easy-doing, broody maternal young cows. 653C is the herd bull we are going to continue the Copenhagen legacy with for years to come.
Another one of the Reckoning top sons who offers the same muscle, depth and hair coat with extra calving ease and style! He patents his sons with his small, correct Angus skull that customers love. His mother, a maternal sister to Mama’s Boy is a beautiful dam that adds to his appeal. Reverence was purchased by Ter-Ron, Bar-E-L and now Allison's. We are super impressed with the Reverence replacements calving now with their correct body design, and excellent udder structure, these girls are built to last.
Rendition was a feature Reckoning son that sold 1⁄2 int. to Bayou Creek, TX in our 2017 sale. His full brother Restore 294C sold to Westphal Red Angus, MT in 2016. Rendition is a herd bull that exemplifies the depth and quality of mating Reckoning to a top Copenhagen 3Y female. His progeny carry on the tradition of soundness, shape and balance with a little extra length of frame. Look to Rendition sons for both calving ease and performance in a very maternal, well balanced package.
High selling bull at the 2017 RSL bull sale where we selected Ice Man for his Outcross pedigree, sound shapely structure and calving ease potential. His first set of sons prove that Ice Man has done what we have expected and more... his calving ease seems to be bulletproof when used on heifers. His progeny inherit his smooth front end, small calving ease head, and dark red hair coat. Check out his sons for consistency, shape and Outcross pedigree.
Bono was a feature in our 2017 sale selected by Heart of The Valley Farms for $30,000. His flawless phenotype, structure and balance made him an obvious choice. He has sired consistency and type both here and at Heart of The Valley. His calves are all blood red, shapely and are nearly perfect footed. We like the completeness and consistency of his calves. His dam has been a solid earning cow raising three top replacements and the $52,000 Unanimous bull to Y-Coulee and Wheelers.
The Outcross Phenom selected by Rafa Ramirez in 2017! Yeti is a herdbull with loads of hair, bone and muscle shape. His dam is a stunning voluminous Ambush cow that is long and wide from all angles. She happens to be a 3/4 sister to Ambush 6T, the sire of Mama’s Boy. His sire, TKO, is a paternal brother to Foreigner. Use these Yeti sons for fresh outcross genetics to add phenotype and maternal strength!
Coalition has taken our black program to a new level. His sons are simply our best sire group to date. Front to back their consistency and quality is overwhelming. Deep ribbed and flanked, wide pinned with huge stifle and lower quarter, massive topped, proud, sound and full of hair. The year he sold, he was our black high seller for $32,000 to Spickler Ranch South in North Dakota. He is also a full brother to our 2018 high seller, Temptation 180E, to Freyburn Angus for $47,500. Their dam, Erelite 109Z is our top donor here and #1 black cow in all categories. She is admired by all visitors and now after calving the first set of Coalition daughters we can say she is the most influential cow to walk our pastures. Fancy fronted with depth of body, length, big hipped and perfect teat size and positioning these daughters have people talking. Coalition is now the lead black Angus bull for 360 Beef in the US. U2 is the only source for Coalition sons in Canada.
Temptation was a standout from when he was born! He is deep flanked, big bodied, stout boned, crazy good haired AND a full brother to Coalition. This $48,000 high selling black bull in our 2018 sale is out of the best cow family we have in our black herd. His dam, 109Z, is flawless in her phenotype and great uddered. 109Z, her dam and grand dam are three of our best looking and best producing black cows.
Prime Cut was the high selling bull at Hinman’s 2015 sale for $70,000 USD. We looked long and hard for over three years before finding this obvious herd bull candidate that stood out from the crowd. After viewing his moderate, deep bodied, beautifully uddered dam, we knew the search was over! Prime Cut was used heavily and successfully on a wide range of heifers and cows. He has provided us with reliable calving ease plus predictable performance and passes on his muscle shape, depth and perfect head carriage. We couldn’t be happier with his progeny, both male and female. Visitors again this summer were fascinated by both the broody, stout and fancy fronted heifer calves and the cocky, wide topped, thick butted bull calves. We are confident that these fresh pedigreed new generation genetics are a huge part of an optimistic future of our program. We now have our second group of daughters milking and they are all what we expected and more. Sound, beautifully uddered deep bodied females that will stand the test of time.
This guy stamps his sons with tremendous hair, big tops, and a smooth design. They are super soggy and thick made in a moderate sized package. A never miss calving ease bull sold to Blairs.Ag out of a top producing Pride daughter. The replacements are super broody and built the same way and have passed it on to their progeny!
This Premium Cut son is thick topped with loads of muscle. He was a standout from birth and his sons carry has same bone and muscle. He has several maternal sisters in our herd and his dam a CAA Legacy female, is a no miss, proud, big barreled cow that visitors always find. Purchased by Six Mile.
