RED is our first Canadian Bred Purebred Red Charolais herd sire we purchased from Wilgenbusch Charolais in Halbrite, SK. RED is a very docile bull with an exceptional hip and correct body type and added calving ease. His pedigree is stacked with great red charolais genetics. His dam is LANG'S RED HEROINE 5H, the dam to Canadian Red Charolais Calving Ease sire LANG'S RED SOLDIER 22S. Red was turned out with cows on tough mountain pasture this spring and summer where he held his condition very well, never taking a lame step. We are excited about RED'S future and will be posting pictures of his progeny as they hit the ground this spring.  


(Please note that RED does not currently have EPDS with the AICA. Since he is a Canadian charolais bull, his AICA EPDS will be built as calves are registered and production data is entered.)

Cowboy Wind was our Senior herd sire by the great LT Wyoming Wind 4020 PLD. He was raised on the ranch out of one of our most fertile productive cows that is still producing at 15 years old. Cowboy Wind is very correct, he has a straight topline, big hip and a huge set of testicles. He is a medium framed bull that adds thickness, longevity, and fertility to his calves. His daughters have big even udders with good teat size. He has been used on the range for 7 years and has never taken a lame step. He has big wide based short toed hooves with good bone providing him the toughness and durability to travel and cover cows in the steep rocky cascade mountains.

Cowboy (pictured at 2) was ranch raised and used in our purebred herd until 2012. He was one of the most athletic bulls I have seen. Cowboy was super long with a powerful big hip extending down to his hock. His feet were wide short and large allowing him to travel the rough country with ease covering cows never taking a lame step. His dam is one of our better cows that is still producing and has excellent udder quality.  His daughters are feminine, sturdy, straight, good milkers and fertile.
