Bull Selection

 All bulls offered for sale were raised in a totally grass fed environment with no access to grain or hormones.  Conservative estimates suggest increased weaning weights of 100-150# more and yearling weights of 250-400# more if grain is fed--this should be remembered when comparing our weights to those of other bulls.

*We can provide advice regarding bull semen selection for matching a specific bull to a buyer's Shorthorn needs and objectives.  Initial contact can be via email or phone, but any subsequent follow up will need to be done by phone since email tag just does not work efficiently in discussing what qualities you are seeking to add to your herd.*

Purchase & shipping information

Thunder is a rugged, thick, stylish bull that is extremely docile.  His calves have been vigorous, moderately sized, and flashy.  His dam is 10 years old and looks only 3.  She is one of our original cows that we have purposely retained.  She is a great milking cow and her udder is still perfect.  Thunder's sire, Whisper Sparky, was recently sold to Rolling Hills Shorthorns of Ohio.  Sparky was a well muscled bull that was structurally sound and that bred cows easily on the hills that make up our farm.   We have kept many Sparky daughters in our herd. Thunder has a lot to offer in a Modern Shorthorn bull.  We will continue to use him in our own herd and are retaining several of his daughters that will add to our genetic pool.
