Success Story from Heifer sold in 2010 Sale

We wanted to share the following letter we received from a past customer/friend.  Love hearing success stories like this and also like to hear how our livestock progress after they leave our hands.  Thanks for sharing, Karly!

"Just wanted to stop by and say how thrilled I am with the heifer I got from you guys a few years back! I believe it was the 2010 sale and she just had her second calf and took first time (has taken first try for all three breedings, so nice!) for her third due next spring. I believe she is a Heat Wave daughter and was sale #62 if I remember right! My name is Karly Kavajecz, a friend of Kera Giampolo, in Northern California and I bought two steers and this heifer from you a few years back. Anyways just thought I'd send you some pics of her new baby who is heading to the same fair with an FFA kid and I can't wait to see how he does! She is Chianina x Maine and the bull was registered Angus. Here's a few pictures of him and his momma. "

Hunting Weather & Good for Hairing up Calves!

We thought we'd better a clip a few of the calves again that we did early on.  They have really haired back up with the cooler weather, and man have they grown!  Check out the back view of one of our favorite "Red" boys..AM50.  You could set the dinner table on here.
And here's a behind shot of him & the Fancy Unstoppable Steer AX131.   POWERHOUSES!! 
These guys just want to go back to the field to eat again.
