Hilldale Commander was bred by W. T. Bennett who owned the Hilldale herd of Connell, Washington. He was never defeated in a show—as a 2 year old he capped his show career by being named Grand Champion bull at the the P. I. show (Pacific International) in 1959. One of his sons (Hilldale Commander’s Hero) was Grand Champion National Polled Shorthorn in 1965. Cattle out of him were top gainers and good carcass cattle. He sired many champions at major shows and consignment sales. His daughters were big cows that made tremendous brood cows—smoothly muscled, and great milkers with good clean udders.
