ON BEHALF OF BRANDON AND THE BIRD FAMILY...

Welcome to a powerful offering of club calf genetics! This is without question one of the deepest sets of

cattle to sell anywhere across the country and it has been derived from countless hours of Brandon’s efforts and years of operation. You will find elite donors and good young cows that have their entire future ahead of them. Many are A.I. serviced and many sell bred to a powerful herd bull battery of successful, proven sires. Brandon’s decision to sell these cows, has been talked about over the last two months by many. The drought of the last few years is one that continues to hang on. It is now one of the epic weather events of our lifetime and will likely be remembered, no different from the days of the dust bowl. If you haven’t been to west Texas lately, you should visit it, just so you can appreciate your likely more abundant feed resources and green grass. This is a hard place for cattle, and without water and help from above, the ability to keep large numbers of cows is a tough proposition. The need to reduce this herd by a large number 1) because of drought and 2) because of Brandon’s growing business endeavors, became a large reality. Many hours have been spent in preparation for this large event. Special thanks to all the crew that spent time clipping and picturing. These cows have come on a great deal in the last month, with the departure of winter. Brandon knows these cows well and is second guessing this herd reduction. The prices of cattle and a demand for the good ones continues to increase every day. These cows have made a large impact on this program, many are proven producers. In April, as we walked through the cattle, Brandon knows each and everyone and what they are. He doesn’t need a paper or a tablet to tell you their record or their pedigree. These cattle will generate big return for their new owners. They are bred right and offer a great deal of possibility for many operations. Make plans to come to Lubbock for this “happening” weekend. We appreciate your time and interest and hope to see you there. Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help facilitate your trip or interest.

She has consistently generated top sellers and good replacements. This is one of the biggest hipped, neatest made females in the offering. She is a powerful donor candidate in the prime of her career. Last year D-24 produced a $16,000 half interest Troubadour daughter that sold to Swan Cattle. A pregnant recipient carrying a full sib to that mating sells as Lot 148. There is a great deal of representation in this cow family all the way through this sale.

THE LEAD HEIFER IN THE FALL HEIFER CALVES

Here’s a great one! Perhaps, in time, this heifer calf, could have as much value as any in the entire offering. Her full sister sold for $18,000 in 2012. She’s super stout, thick, sound and will no doubt be a leading donor for any progressive outfit down the road. Her dam is sired by 804. 804 is also the sire of the exciting cow offered as Lot 6. Many know the 804 line of Airhart cattle. This is a very special heifer calf and one that many people like a great deal. Her value will likely increase tremendously with time and age.

Open Heifers – Lots 201–230

This is an extra nice set of open heifers

that speaks volumes for this operation and this set of cattle selling. There are some good finds

in this set of open heifers! As bred heifers, many of their values will likely double. There are donor prospects and many good cow makers in this group, all backed by tremendous genetics.
