Here at Lenth Herefords, we work hard to keep up with the times and to offer breeding bulls and replacement females that will be productive for our purebred and commercial customers, and also allow us to keep rebuilding our own herd with a variety of bloodlines to continue meeting the needs of our many “repeat customers”. Sound structure and good feet and legs in all animals, good udders in the females, are of utmost importance.
Over the past several years, we have used Herd Bulls that have both been purchased and raised ourselves. Sons of many of the top A.I. sires have been utilized, including 719T, Trust 100W, Redeem, Cracker Jack, Revolution 4R, OnTarget 936, Prospector 145Y, Churchill Red Bull 200Z and KT Built Tuff 1010. In recent years we have utilized A.I. for the first round on many of our females, followed up by our strong group of herd bulls. For 2019 and 2020 seasons, some of the A.I. sires utilized include /S Mandate, Frontier 174E, R Leader, Cuda, RN York 5083, Built Tuff 1010, Encore Z311 and R Excitement. We have been impressed with the calves already on the ground from these sires, and look forward to the calves coming in future crops. Take a look below at our own Herd Sires being used currently, and those that have made a recent impact on our Herd.
This super high calving ease, low BW, homozygous polled bull is our primary ‘Heifer Bull’ for summer 2020. Sired by the increasingly popular R Leader bull, and out of a very impressive first calf mother out of our Donor Cow 127Y Sierra, Laredo is dark, thick, deep bodied, and has two big red eyes. It will be exciting to see his calves in the spring of 2021.
