Cows

Quality over Quantity

We don’t have many cows but we try to have the best cows we can own that fit our program. Like our bulls, they need to excel in many traits especially growth and carcass traits. Obviously we ask them to have all the functional maternal traits like fertility, udder quality, fleshing ability etc., but there number one job is to produce highly productive, efficient and high quality Charolais bulls.

DUBUC BELLA 430B

Registration Number: PFC406566
Date of Birth: January 15 2014
Sire: Shelco Made Easy 512R
Dam: Dubuc Xabina 3X

We are extremely excited to introduce you to Bella 430B, our most recent acquisition from Dubuc Charolais in Canada. Bella currently ranks as the number three marbling cow in Canada. Bella has 4 calves with an average weaning weight ratio of 109 and 4 calves with an average yearling weight ratio of 112. She ranks in the top 35% for bw, 10% for both weaning and yearling, 4% for carcass weight and ribeye area and 1% for marbling. If you sort using those percentages in the U.S. no cow comes up. Bella is one of those unique cows that checks all the data boxes with a semi outcross pedigree and exceptional phenotype. We are very excited to work with Bella here in the U.S.

Sire of DCR Ms Silver Led F136

DCR MS SILVER LED F136

Registration Number: F1266938
Date of Birth: February 18, 2018
Sire: WCF Mr Silver Gun 467
Dam: DCR Ms Ledger C43

The current #1 TSI female in the Charolais breed. When we started looking to add Silver Gun genetics to our program, we naturally went to Doll Charolais Ranch in ND. F136 was our pick of the Silver Gun daughters and we couldn’t be happier. She’s a really nice young female, with a tremendous udder, great disposition and doing a phenomenal job with her first calf. We feel like Doll Charolais Ranch females are one of the best kept secrets in the Charolais breed.

Sire: M6 New Standard 842 P ET
Dam: MS Cooley S Duke 1107N60

2138 is a maternal sister to the popular performance sire Cooley Royce 1107T39. Many discriminating cow men have said 2138’s dam was the best Charolais female they have ever seen. 2138 was our pick of her flush at M6. Her flush sisters sold in the M6 dispersal for $11,000 and $19,000. 2138 is the perfect cow for our environment. She’s deep, soggy, easy fleshing and can consume large amounts of low quality forage. She is a powerful female with great feet and a great disposition.
