CRF Maggie May- kap viking shafer x poe miss dee

ear Grove Beef is offering the choice of flushes between two of Bear Grove Beef’s most proven cow families to the bull of buyer’s choice, or double the bid to flush both. Option #1(Lot 5) is the opportunity to flush CRF Maggie May. Maggie is out of the legendary Dee cow, who we lost last year at the age of 14. Dee’s last two calves were Maggie and BGB Ben Dover. Maggie was division champion at the 2014 Iowa State Fair and American Royal and the 2015 National Western Stock Show. Ben was reserve champion bull at the 2015 Iowa State Fair and division champion at the 2015 American Royal and 2016 National Western Stock Show. Dee was a cow with no KAP genetics in her pedigree that stamped Maggie and Ben with tremendous depth of body and overall mass wrapped around sound structures. Maggie’s heifer calf, Dee Dee, looks like she’ll continue the legacy of the Dee cow family. If you’re trying to put high quality cows in the pasture that will make you proud every time to check the herd and still give you a fighting chance to put some in front of the backdrop, this is a one time chance. We will not offer flushes to Maggie again after this sale. By the way, Dee was 13 when she calved Ben and she raised him with a perfect udder. We all know this breed could use a lot more of that. Maggie is following in her mom’s footsteps in that department, too.

ption #2 (Lot 6) is a flush to KAP Lil Rockin Becki. Becki is the dam of BGB Cannonball. Cannonball was reserve champion bull at the 2016 Iowa State Fair. He’s a breed changer of a bull, ultra square on all four corners, truly unique for the breed in how his neck ties into the top of his shoulder, and massive topped. This guy also strapped on a pair, if you know what we mean. We believe great bulls come from great cows and Cannonball is built like his mama. Becki is extremely level through her topline and hip, cool fronted, and has some nice pigment, to boot. We think this cow is just hitting her stride in making her mark on the breed. She comes from some throw back genetics whose time has come again. Like Option 1 (Lot 5), we are offering this as a one time flush opportunity and will sell no more flushes to Becki after this sale.

2016 Grand Champion Female NAILE - Louisville, KY

T

he story begins at the 2015 NAILE. Jen and I were talking about potentially getting a mini Hereford heifer for our

son Hudson in the near future, so we decided to go watch the show. We quickly realized what a great bred it is for the young kids to get into and how well tempered the calves are for them. As the show progressed into the Open Show we noticed this heifer “Mini Mama”walk into the ring. We looked at each and had to walk down from the stands and get a closer look. There was something about her that made her stand out from all the rest. Maybe it was her striking profile or her flawless design or maybe her sweet personality. Most likely all those qualities were the reason she really stood out. So after her winning her class and division we asked if she was for sale. Their response was “Yes”. After a little thought we decided to purchase her. Soon after that she went back in for over all and was selected reserve champion overall as a calf. Needless to say we were pretty excited! “Mini” has been an absolute blast to own. We were fortunate to be sitting there that day and find her. The Breeders of “Mini” have been an absolute pleasure to work with! Now fast forward to NAILE 2016. “Mini” was selected at Grand Champion Mini Hereford Female. Back to Back Banners for this Great Female. Everyone that has seen her falls in love with her. She has made many people want to get into the mini bred. If your looking for consistent championship results then make this flush a must buy.

What is the Premier Consigner? The High Selling Lot will be awarded this custom made buckle that reflects their committment to making the inaugural Mini Mafia Denver Sale the Nation’s Most Elite Offering of Miniature Hereford Genetics.


The Mini Mafia 2017 Denver Sale.......how it all began When Jeff Bash and C Jason Spence met at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo in March of 2016 it was by pure accident. Spence had been considering the Minis and liked what he saw at San Antonio. While in Houston, Dee Braman of JB Show Cattle had asked Spence to read pedigrees for the sale. When OSG Roscoe entered the sale ring, Spence thought to himself, “that steer is too good to let anyone steal”....and when the hammer fell, Spence was in the Miniature Hereford Business. Following the show the next day and after a couple of conversations the friendship grew. Spence’s 4 year old son, Spencer, took to “Roscoe” and his show career was launched. Jeff called and checked on the progress of the steer throughout the Summer and from their converations they kept coming back to the idea of a sale. During the Texas State Jr. Hereford Show in the summer of 2016 they decided that the Mini Hereford breed needed a better avenue to market the elite genetics. What started out as a conversation soon became a focus and then reality. It was decided after their backdrop photo with OSG Roscoe winning the Reserve Grand Champion Steer -- we will be producing a sale at Denver in 2017.
