These are our Simmental Herd Sires. Calving ease is imperative at this ranch. We basically breed for; Half-Quarter-Quarter or Three Quarter-One Quarter of our selective breeds. We feel that we get the best Heterosis this way. Come see for yourself we welcome you to view our program anytime.
RIP Glock 2017-2021
WE ARE EXCITED ABOUT WHAT HE CAN ADD TO OUR COWHERD. LOOKS TO BE EASY KEEPING AND VERY SOUND.
He continues to impress us with calving ease and keepers. Deep body and thickness without giving up bone and depth of body!
TCL Habernos Huck 3071002 Half Blood Simmental Sire: Haberno Y81 by BMR Explorer son by Westfall Voyager. Dam: TLC 8005 W9104 ET Quarter Angus (New Day 8005) Quarter FB Braunvieh TLC Buds Betsy P4154 Donor OB51080
He was one of those calves that just stood out of the pack! His granddam TLC Buds Betsy P4154 was full sister to National Show Heifer of the Year TLC Buds Star R5150. So adding him to the herd meant keeping good looks and udder quality. He was an experiment in our breeding program to keep them half Simmental, quarter Angus and quarter Braunvieh. It has worked and daughters are keepers. Early maturing and easy keepers with those beautiful udders we hoped to get.
We have used in herd on several of our Simmental/Maine/Angus cows. He has calving ease and his calves gain well also. Keeping several daughters as replacement base herd. His daughters were bred to Flying B Cutter and WCS Glock daughters. He grew up to be a massive bull!
Huck is kind of stuck on himself and thinks he is the king of the pasture.

Comments: This Huck sired daughter is red and a spice girl in our granddaughters herd she is building. She halter broke her and used her in showmanship in 2021. Low Percentage Simmental 3/8 but what a way to start a program with her as her first heifer. She will be bred in Spring of 2022.

We used him with great success on some Cutter daughters, calving ease and thick sound calves. His first calves hit the ground and we also used him on several first time heifers with no problems. Very stout and sound babies! Come see them.
Rex on his dam just before time to wean and he had to creep feed here. Big stout calf that has turned into a very nice herd bull in our herd. Saving several daughters. Patty was 17 years old when we finally let her go to town. We have three half sisters to Rex in the herd and D6220 a Chop Sticks daughter is the dam of TCL Glock 11 H0413 we are retaining in the herd just because of this strong cow line!

Tops in them like we want flat and wide! Come see his first crop and then you will understand our genetics in work! The proof is in the pudding! Woody will go to Kentucky to a repeat bull buyers herd this fall. We know he will knock it out of the park for Tyson Rogers program.
