As a producer you develop expectations within your cow herd. Reaching a balance between all of the industry demands and producing cattle that meet those demands can be somewhat of a full time job. One of the greatest rewards as a breeder is finding the right combination between the old and the new. BEA 0003X is an example of that specific combination of powerful genetics that this breed began with and the more modern direction of industry standards. This is a female that defines the word “combination”; she is sound from the ground up with a big foot, has a long square hip, loads of natural rib shape and is long and feminine fronted with an unmatched amount of eye appeal. 0003X has a big birth to weaning spreads and an EPD profile that will create a lot of different breeding options. We purchased her sire, Pie Deweze 6292 from the Pieper Ranch several years ago and the combination has been outstanding, the bulls are consistent in type and kind (long, big bodied with a big foot and high gains) and the daughters are making superior cows. They are deep bodied easy fleshing females that have heavy milking with great udder attachment and teat placement. BEA 0003X’s dam 2207M has a powerful pedigree as well; her grand dam is PRTY Moonlit Splendor 540D who was a past national champion that has had a big impact on the Gelbiveh breed; producing high volume females with loads of maternal strength. Other highlights in 0003X’s pedigree are LNR Traitmaker, Belgrad, DGA Cowboy, LNR Minnesota Belgrad, BEA Polled Midnight and numerous other bulls that founded and helped to shape the Gelbvieh breed throughout the years. BEA 0003X has a bright future ahead of her and is potentially a breed changing females that combines the “old with the new.” 2010 Fall EPDs: BW 0.9; WW 39; YW 79; M 16 and TM 35.

FHG Flying H Lacey 209X ET’s first outing off the ranch was the Nebraska State Fair back in September where this phenomenal heifer calf tried to sweep the house and she came mighty close winning reserve grand champ female honors. After attending several state fairs this past fall, we think the Nebraska State Fair was one of the largest/toughest shows and this phenomenal heifer whipped a heap of super females. Lacey is the kind that can handle any type of competition in the show ring but her real value will be in production. Her super Polled Gizmo donor dam GFI Ms Gizmo 835H was honored as a Dam of Merit female in every year of eligibility. And at 13 years of age donor mama 835H is still producing babies and boys, she sports a ripping 108 weaning weight ratio on those babies. Breeder’s, this is one phenomenal homozygous polled heifer calf and you might note she sports top 15% EPD strength for weaning weight, yearling weight and milk. 2010 Fall EPDs: BW 0.8; WW 43; YW 84; M 22; TM 44 and GL -0.5. Flying H Genetics is retaining a 25% flushing interest in FHG Flying H Lacey 209X ET...Flying H knows the great ones and they want a share of this phenomenal heifer calf.
