FALL CREAM OF THE CROP BULL & BRED HEIFER SALE | 1 | MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2020…CRAWFORD, OKLAHOMA


Welcome to the Sale! IF YOU’RE IN THE CLUB CALF BUSINESS or are a commercial cattleman who likes them very eye appealing and medium sized with lots of depth, width and easy keepin, with all breeds and composites to choose from, we promise if you’ll make the trip to Crawford, you won’t be disappointed. Everything is extremely handy to look at, and if you are in our area prior to sale week, we invite you to stop by. The bulls selling will be leading AI candidates and turn out sires that you can build a herd around. They’re 18 to 24 months of age, semen, trich and genomic tested, vaccinated, wormed, and are completely ready to be turned out on cows. The bred heifers in this offering are going to make tremendous cows, many of which are donor quality. They should calve within a 70-day window to a nice set of high quality, low birth weight registered Red Angus bulls. You can’t afford to miss this offering! Please do not hesitate to pick up the phone and call or text Tyler, Phylli or me at anytime. Ultimately, our customer’s success is what we have built our business around since 1978, and we appreciate each and every one of you trusting in our program. Let us know your wants, needs and end goals, and we will help you pick out the best cattle for your program. Nobody knows them and their cow family history as good as we do. Give us a call anytime!

Let us know how we can make any troubles that may arise right, promote their progeny through our sales, or celebrate your successes! To my family, employees and neighbors, who keep the wheels rolling year round and help put this sale on year after year, many thanks is due to you all! I want to thank the good Lord for my wife, Gay, who is now referred to as “Moo” by the greatest addition ever to our place, Rheal Zel Roberts, the true Cream of the Crop.

FALL CREAM OF THE CROP BULL & BRED HEIFER SALE | 2 | MONDAY, OCTOBER 31, 2020…CRAWFORD, OKLAHOMA


C R E A M of the C R O P

Since 1978

When Kris was in the first grade, his grandfather Frank “Shorty” Gilliland gave him a purebred Polled Hereford heifer. Kris kept the females as replacements, and by the time he graduated, he had a small group of cows that were the original foundation of what is now Black Hereford Ranch. Shorty’s family homesteaded the acreage that was previously the Gilliland Hereford Ranch for G.L. and Shorty Gilliland. One of the original homes still remains in use today as a ranch house. Neighbors tell stories of helping Shorty load his tack and cattle onto train cars, riding with the cattle, traveling to shows as far off as the World Beef Expo in Kentucky. They put on a number of Polled Hereford production sales over the years. Unfortunately due to health reasons, Shorty had to disperse most of his cow herd. The year Kris graduated, Shorty had a stroke that left him handicapped. Kris put a halt to college plans and moved to Crawford to work for Shorty until his passing a few years later.

Hereford followed by a Tulsa Reserve Grand Champion Steer with a Hereford. He continued to add color to his crop, and in 1993 he had a black baldy Power Plant son that was Reserve Grand at Houston, raised by our late friend Frank Johnson. In 1994, Frank bought a Power Plant x Chi cow and called Kris to ask what to breed her to…a year later, Habanero was born. They were our first to break the $20,000 barrier, and 24 years later Habanero is still making a direct impact. Kris knows the ups and downs to starting out in this business and has thoroughly enjoyed helping people from all different

Kris began outcrossing Herefords and keeping heifers to build

backgrounds lay their foundation to a successful career in an

his cow herd. Two years later, he had a Houston Champion

industry that has been his main focus for over four decades.

SALE TERMS & CONDITIONS

C R E A M of the C R O P

TERMS OF SALE

FEMALE BREEDING GUARANTEE

Terms of sale are cash or check to the clerk at the conclusion of the auction. Animals are not to leave until paid for in full.

Safe in calf females have been examined by our veterinarians. All females declared safe in calf will have a projected calving date or date range printed on the sale day supplement. All projected due dates are best estimates only and not guaranteed. Please remember that it is normal to give birth throughout the two weeks either side of their projected due date. If a pregnant female proves to be open by a licensed veterinarian within 45 days of this sale and is returned to the seller within 60 days at the buyer’s expense, the buyer may choose between a full credit refund of equal value, to be used within the next year’s COC sales, or choose to keep the female with a $600 refund adjustment.

BULL BREEDING GUARANTEE All bulls in this offering have been fertility and trichomoniasis tested by our veterinarian, Scott Sturgeon, D.V.M., and are guaranteed to be breeders, with the exception of a) injury or disease occurring after the time of sale; or b) gross negligence or willful misconduct on the part of the purchaser. Any bull that settles cows by natural service is considered a breeder.

RETAINED INTEREST IN BULLS Ownership: Unless otherwise stated in the catalog, we are selling full possession, full salvage value and 2/3 revenue sharing semen interest. This means the bull is totally in your control as to how you want to handle him, as well as 100% of the salvage value of the bull. We are retaining 1/3 revenue-sharing semen interest. This simply gives us the right to 1/3 of the semen sales revenue from the bull, if at some time in the future semen sales become a possibility. If you sell the bull to anyone else, Black Hereford Ranch retains our semen interest and revenue sales. If a buyer is not interested in marketing the semen from a bull, then Black Hereford Ranch reserves the right to collect a semen bank on the bull at our cost and the buyer’s convenience within a timely manner. That semen would be 100% owned by Black Hereford Ranch for our use or marketing. Realistically speaking, the reason Black Hereford Ranch retains an interest in every bull is that we want to keep it simple, and we have great bulls throughout the offering. The bulls that do develop a market for larger amounts of semen can be very financially rewarding; therefore, as a breeder of some of the best seed stock in the industry, we want to share with you in these bulls. Even bulls that aren’t originally promoted can become popular at a later time, especially after calf crops prove successful. We want to be a great partner with you. Semen Rights: Buyers receive semen rights proportionally to the interest that is purchased. A 1/3 semen interest, and 1/3 of all semen sales, is retained on all bulls unless otherwise stated in the catalog or supplement sheet or announced from the block the day of the sale. Therefore, if you purchase 2/3 revenue sharing semen interest, you are entitled to 2/3 of the collection semen cost provided that you indicate that you want semen prior to collection. Future semen collections must be made known to all owners prior to collecting. The collections and cost will be divided according to each owner’s interest, unless otherwise agreed upon mutually by all owners prior to collection of said semen.

PROTECTING YOUR INVESTMENT We did our best to use the best low birth weight sires available on the bred heifers. We don’t have many calving problems, but we check them every three to four hours around the clock close to due dates. After they’re sold, they’re livelihood is now your ownership. We highly recommend you take out insurance on your purchases. This is a safe way to protect your investment on both females and bulls.

RETAINED INTEREST IN FEMALES Black Hereford Ranch RETAINS THE RIGHT TO PARTNER ON TWO SUCCESSFUL FLUSHES ON ALL COC FEMALES. A successful flush is defined as producing at least four eggs per partner. If you sell the female to anyone else, Black Hereford Ranch still retains our right to partner on two successful flushes. If a buyer is not interested in flushing the female, then Black Hereford Ranch reserves the right to two successful flushes on the female at our cost and the buyer’s convenience within a timely manner.

FUTURE HEALTH CARE RECOMMENDATIONS The stress of hauling and relocating your COC purchases can weaken their immune system, so we recommend keeping a good eye on them daily for the two weeks after you get them home. See page 16 for our complete herd health protocol. These 18-month-old bulls can be used with great success, but we recommend to turn out one cow per bull’s month of age for best results. These young bulls are still growing and losing their teeth and may need a little extra care at the end of their first breeding season.

BLACK HEREFORD RANCH RESERVES THE RIGHT TO COLLECT DNA FOR CLONING PURPOSES ON ALL CATTLE WE SELL.

right /rīt/ adj.: 1. morally good, justified, or acceptable. 2. true or correct as a fact. noun: that which is morally correct, just, or honorable. There’s plenty of commotion and headbutting going on in this country, seeming like “true north” has been lost. Most will agree that the “Right” and the “Left” both need takin behind the woodshed and reminded that what’s right in the “world’s eyes” and what’s right in the Lord’s eyes are on opposite ends of the spectrum. I’m sure if you’re reading this, you are some of the late, great, dying breed that were “RAISED RIGHT” and are ready for the great awakening that will return us to our roots. The kind that pioneer forward without losing sight of the history that sculpted us. Since 1978, we have maintained the goal to “raise em right”—cattle, business, crops and kids. Looking in the rear view, we know how fortunate we are to have witnessed this industry grow and branch out in many different directions at rapid speeds. We owe the good Lord and the cattle he has allowed us to be caretakers of over the years many, many thanks! Quite a few household name Hereford bulls that have left an imprint on this industry were raised and/or sold here. The type that were truly made “right.” Simply stated, Donor 8710 has proven herself. She doesn’t just make them right, she raises them right. She is old school COC bred and rings the bell to anything “Made Right.” In 2017, everybody was hungry for what she brought to the table. Her Battle Cry son was the $30,000 high seller in our Fall Bull Sale to Randy and Jarod Floyd and would later become “Astro.” Now she has done it again. If you’re familiar with the Hereford show steer industry or have followed our program for any amount of time, then you know the trail that our Made Right has blazed. Truly a legacy, including the road to the $70,000 half interest Battle Cry, who has gone on to produce major champions, high sellers, keepin kind of females, AI sires that are paving their own path, and most recently the 2020 Tulsa State Fair Champion Hereford Steer for the Sturgeon Family. When God creates things right, their apples tend to not fall far from the tree. Regardless if “Raised Right” is sired by Made Right or Battle Cry, this mixed flush lights our fire. “Raised Right” is the perfect blend of everything we deem “essential” and delivers all the incentives needed to break new ground and hold his own in the fast lane.

COC Easy Jett was born unassisted to a dang nice first-calf heifer in 2014, and her second crop produced our high selling Highway 33; she has produced a phenomenal set of females since then. Donor 1685 has been a no-miss profit maker that undeniably passes that trait on heavily. Half-interest in Easy Jett sold in our 2015 Bull Sale to Bradley and Jett Hale of Miami, Texas. Bradley and Kris both AI’d, flushed and cleaned up cows with him that fall and spring with confidence. He lived up to his Roger Mills County namesake and hit the fast track with more momentum than we ever dreamt! Easy Jett’s first calf crop of steers laid the foundation of everything we expected and then some. Every single Easy Jett steer we sold that spring, except for one, branded at a Texas major. Even on a minimal calf crop, he produced the SandHills Champion Polled and sired three of the four Hereford champions at Fort Worth in 2019. His daughters are nothing short of phenomenal. Unfortunately, in the spring of 2017, Easy Jett sustained an injury that most vets chalked up as a complete loss, but Dr. Gary Warner and his team of specialists at Elgin, Texas, took it head on. We are very fortunate to have him back in our lineup, but due to recovery, Easy Jett has not been able to produce semen as often. Until banks are restored, we are still not releasing semen to the open public market. He is a phenomenal looking six-year-old, even in his work clothes. Never have we ever had a sire group so deep, so quick, not even when the winningest Hereford show steer sire of all time, Made Right, who has been in the record books for 18 years, was in his prime production.

“Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young...” 1 Timothy 4:12 Don’t ever doubt a good young one, including good stock! This guy is the youngest of the whole bunch but when studied presents an opportunity in a green package that will make a mature bull you will be proud to own. He is good lookin, sound made and as complete as they come. He is sired by a big time bull backed by cow power that we used with a great deal of success. This summer Brent and Brennan Williams added “Olaf” TCC Ms Diana 01 (who takes the cake as one of the stoutest Carpe Diem sons to date) Maternal granddam of Lot 4 to their progressive program; he is one that you will want to watch for! When John Tucker leased him, he called concerned that he wouldn’t fit down his alley to load him on the truck back south. He liked the calves he got out of him enough that he leased him again! There’s a lot of good to this one, do your homework! Lot 4’s dam was a registered purebred Hereford that goes back to the great “Diana.” This bull’s granddam, great-granddam and great-great granddam all three were National Champions and some of the winningest females in the breed of all time for the Tucker boys.

“Burnin’ Daylight ” “Slap some bacon on a biscuit and let’s go. We’re burnin’ daylight.” — John Wayne This is the one we’ve all been waiting for. He’s bred way different and built against the grain. Wide enough to navigate the Titanic down his top. Deep enough to put the belly back on the cattle from the 80s. He’s as agile and mobile as Tyreek Hill. A simple Google search of “incredible fronted” will pull up his image. Marked to waltz through the Texas Hereford Classification Mafia. You can bet we won’t bat an eye or burn any daylight using him in bulk this fall!

From a great cow family, he is powerful, and we have gotten along well using him to inject growth, balance and a good shot of maternal on a wide variety of our cows. He produced “Loaded Up of Dolly” that highlighted our sale this summer at $24,000 to Ronnie Glover. In our June 2019 sale, he sired our $25,000 half interest Lot 1 “Renee” donor. These sons selling are equally impressive, and we are proud to offer them to you.

If you’ve followed our program for any amount of time, you know that we like offering you cattle that are “maternal with plenty of gas in the tank.” Kris got on a Simmi kick a few years ago, with the goal to offer elites to not only outcross but also improve our customers’ programs. This bull is as cool of a maternal made one of any color that we’ve ever had. He has a tremendous look and is loose structured, loaded with power and belly and then topped off with a neck like no other. He is huge footed and can get out and cat with the best of them.

Lots 8 and 9 are out of two of the stoutest, best lookin black cows on our place, and their progeny consistently rise to the top. Donor 1275 is not your typical Monopoly daughter; she took only the good attributes that he has to offer to raise the bar on what this great Sooner cow already offers. We wouldn’t trade this mother/daughter duo and the cow power that they back these sons with.

Lot 9 His granddam produced the ever impressive Lot 8, and he is a full brother to the extra fancy Lots 108 and 109 heifers in this offering. We mixed the semen and flushed Donor 1275 to Loaded Up as well as Front & Center; either way, he’s a good one in our books! Regardless of who his daddy is, he is built how we all like them.

In a nutshell, that is the only explanation we have for why some of the best bulls we have ever laid eyes on are bucket loads more impressive in person, including this fella. His mother goes back to one of the coolest lookin girls to ever come off the HooDoo Ranch and is still kicked out in our low maintenance pasture at age 14 — longevity production at its finest. Good reds are rare commodities in this day and time, but one like this can be categorized on the same list of mythical creatures as flying pigs, money trees and honest career politicians. We flat can’t sing enough praises or say enough good about this critter, so we will simply let him speak for himself October 31st. He is freezing semen, and we plan on using him heavily this fall.

HooDoos

the

HooDoo Phylli

For 10 consecutive years we made the trip to Cody, Wyoming, where George Brown allowed us the opportunity to have first pick of nearly 20,000 weaned heifer calves on the HooDoo Ranch. We got to hand pick out of 2,000 heifer calves a year, but there was never one quite like HooDoo Phylli. She was the stoutest of the 1,500 we bought and brought back to Crawford. She is the dam of Yellow Jacket, Polar Ice, J10 and many other outstanding progeny. The HooDoos ultimately influenced the turning point in the show steer industry from a black-hided world to the big surge of yellows, smokes and whites. Among others, Cream of the Crop HooDoo females have produced: 2004 Houston Grand Steer, 2006 San Antonio Grand Steer, 2007 San Antonio Grand Steer, 2009 Houston Grand Steer, 2011 Houston Reserve Grand Steer, 2015 Houston Grand Steer, 2016 Houston Reserve Grand Steer and 2016 San Antonio Reserve Grand Steer plus countless breed champions at the toughest shows in the country.

PB HooDoo selected by Howdy Tucker in our June 2017 sale for $28,000. She has paid for herself in progeny sales many times. 2017 Houston Reserve Grand Steer—granddam was a COC HooDoo cow.

2015 Houston Grand Steer—out of a COC PB HooDoo cow that we sold to our good COC customers at Parker Cattle Co.

2016 Houston Reserve Grand Steer—out of a daughter of a COC HooDoo purchased by Brian and Dennis Kennedy…the third Reserve Grand they produced with our COC genetics. You won’t find HooDoo genetics offered in volume anywhere else like in our sales.

Both of these outstanding heifer champions were out of our HooDoo donors. Congratulations to the Shaffer Family on the 2013–14 Charolais Show Heifer of the Year and the Grand Champion Heifer at the 2015 Charolais Junior National.

Sub Zero was our COC $17,000 straight purebred HooDoo-bred sire to Gray and Parker that has been a phenomenal versatile producing specialist. His progeny have rung the bell of our bull and heifer sale offerings in the past for a reason. He kept his work clothes on for 11 years and was still flat impressive.

He throws them how we like ‘em, and these sons should be breeding pieces that stand the test of time.

He got misplaced in the book but won’t be misplaced sale week. His dam rivaled Yellow Jacket’s dam to be the stoutest PB HooDoo ever.

“What’s that ‘C.Up?’” When we get into our later-born calves that are sired by our clean up bulls, the best we can do is write “C.Up” in the top of their eartag. Every year we have several guys who come early and ask, “What’s that C.Up bull? Those calves look good!” That’s because these aren’t your average turn out bulls. Our AI sires don’t live at the bull stud and go to work twice a week — we use them and put them to the test. COC 3 and COC 44 are the purebred maternal brothers to COC Renegade and the $25,000 half interest COC Sue out of Donor 5088.

Gnaw on this thought for a moment, Taz sired Heat Wave’s dam. Our Taz daughters are still phenomenal producers decades later, but think of what all that Taz daughter deserves credit for. We see a lot of guys in this business only studying the topside of pedigrees, only referencing parts of pedigrees for shorthand, but as we all realistically know, there’s a lot of power steering on both ends of pedigrees. Without that good Taz cow, would there be a Heat Wave? Without a Heat Wave, would there be a Monopoly or the hundreds of other sons? We all need to credit the cow families that get the job done and have made this industry what it is today. Our success stories are filled with customers who have received our catalog, studied it and taken home exceptional bred cattle that may have not been the high seller sale day but that they take back to the country and make a hand-over-fist profit.

RETAINED INTEREST IN COC BULLS OWNERSHIP Unless otherwise stated, we are selling full possession, full salvage value and 2/3 revenue sharing semen interest. This means the bull is totally in your control as to how you want to handle him, as well as 100% of the salvage value of the bull. We are retaining 1/3 revenue-sharing semen interest. This simply gives us the right to 1/3 of the semen sales revenue from the bull, if at some time in the future semen sales become a possibility. If you sell the bull to anyone else, Black Hereford Ranch retains our semen interest and revenue sales. If a buyer is not interested in marketing the semen from a bull, then Black Hereford Ranch reserves the right to collect a semen bank on the bull at our cost and the buyer’s convenience within a timely manner. That semen would be 100% owned by Black Hereford Ranch for our use or marketing. Realistically speaking, the reason Black Hereford Ranch retains an interest in every bull is that we want to keep it simple, and we have great bulls throughout the offering. The bulls that do develop a market for larger amounts of semen can be very financially rewarding; therefore, as a breeder of some of the best seed stock in the industry, we want to share with you in these bulls. Even bulls that aren’t originally promoted can become popular at a later time, especially after calf crops prove successful. We want to be a great partner with you. SEMEN RIGHTS Buyers receive semen rights proportionally to the interest that is purchased. A 1/3 semen interest and thus 1/3 of all semen sales is retained on all bulls unless otherwise stated in the catalog or supplement sheet or announced from the block the day of the sale. Therefore, if you purchase 2/3 revenue sharing semen interest, you are entitled to 2/3 of the collection semen cost provided that you indicate that you want semen prior to collection. Future semen collections must be made known to all owners prior to collecting. The collections and cost will be divided according to each owner’s interest, unless otherwise agreed upon mutually by all owners prior to collection of said semen.

2020 Tulsa Champion Hereford Steer Congratulations to the Sturgeon Family on making Western Oklahoma proud with your Made Right-sired Champion Hereford Steer at the 2020 Tulsa State Fair! Many thanks to Glover Cattle Co. for being volume Made Right semen buyers and crossing him on your best!

2020 Fort Worth Grand Champion Steer We would like to personally congratulate Ryder and the entire Day Family on an unprecedented win of a lifetime! It is one thing to win, but there is something even sweeter about RAISING YOUR OWN CHAMPION! The Day crew have been long time customers that we are proud to do business with. Many years ago, they purchased this steer’s grandmother as a $3,500 COC 30-06 open heifer. She has been a prolific donor within their program, with her first flush alone grossing $50,000. She has produced so many hundreds of thousands of dollars in revenue that they have lost track of her earnings record. P254 has produced champions at all of the Texas majors and has even been cloned. The Days have also been volume buyers of COC Made Right semen and have taken his genetics to great heights, selling many champions and high sellers sired by him and his daughters. However, the one that has recently received all the accolades was a cross of the two COC greats — Made Right x P254, who is the mother of the 2020 Fort Worth Grand. We’ve run this steer’s pedigree back 40 years to Mr. Incredible (AHA 17957073), just for family fun. It is truly amazing how far this industry has come! We are overwhelmingly humbled and proud that this champion was stacked top and bottom with many COC legends, such as Made Right, Donor P254, Carpe Diem, 4114 Made, Wasp, 30-06, Donor 9929, 4114, Dakota, Tank, Timex, Cannon, 351, Tequila and probably more than we kept track of. The unfortunate fact of the matter is that there’s never enough room or space to give everyone the credit that they deserve. (Please bear with our aging minds if we have missed anyone.) Please join us in giving due praise to some very talented, longterm Cream of the Crop customers, breeders and friends for having an invested interest in this champion: The Day Family, Stan and Weston Born, Tee Knox, Curtis Graf, Mike Mimms, Kelly Munson, Bradley Hale, Gerald Haseloff, Bill Taylor, Donnie Begalka, Kent Orrell, Korky Wise and (last but definitely not least) Brad Hook… all for doing your part to achieve things most deemed impossible!

2020 SandHills Reserve Grand Champion Steer Congratulations to the Patschke Family on your COC Battleship-sired champion! Congratulations and many thanks to Bradley Hale for breeding to COC Battleship with big results, including this champion, the San Antonio Champion Simmental and the San Antonio Reserve Hereford!

2020 San Antonio Champion Angus Steer Congratulations to Jett Hale for taking this COC bred, born and raised steer all the way! Thank you for optimizing his potential. Good luck with this year’s project!

2020 Fort Worth Reserve Grand Champion Steer We want to congratulate our friends The Thomas Family on a win that’s been long overdue in our books! We knew when you bought your first steer from us years ago that y’all went against the grain and were destined for greatness. Way to go out with a bang! Congratulations and hats off to our customers The Beach and Waldrip boys of Open Bar Cattle Co. and Bradley Hale for raising this powerhouse! He had in his pedigree COC greats Made Right, Carpe Diem and Outer Limits. Thank y’all for your continuous support and trusting in COC genetics!

2020 San Antonio Reserve Champion Simmental Steer Congratulations to Mason Smith on your double-bred COC champion! Thank you to Wade Shackelford for placing and managing this standout.
