One of the standout females in our 2012 calf crop. Study her picture, you will not find another Shorthorn in the country that is so extended through her front end, so good in her shoulder, massive in her rib, yet perfect from hooks to pins and good at the ground. This heifer sets the bar for which others will be measured by. Her mother is a maternal sib to our 2010 high seller that was campaigned successfully by the Nikkel Family, KS.

One of my personal favorites… She is not as far along as some, however if you evaluate cattle on quality and potential this heifer will be on your list. It is so hard to build cattle with the quality she possesses. Lot 7 is sweet fronted, great built, awesome in her rib shape and powerful while maintaining that perfect stride and awesome hair we all seek. This female will compete at any level and make you look super smart next summer. Tough to make them this complete.

Show Heifer Supreme!

A breeding piece with show stopping good looks. This Augusta Pride female is outstanding. She offers massive bone, stoutness, look, rib and structure in an awesome roan package. This female will undoubtedly show and win her fair share but when it’s all said and done she will raise the right kind and make money for her new owners.

This is the wildest fronted, coolest made female on the sale. You literally cannot make them any more extended through their front 1/3, any cooler in their look, keep them any bolder in their rib and still be so stout at the ground. This female has that unique type that will allow her to show and win early and then show up at state fair and be that one the barn is buzzing about. Land of Lincoln Eligible.

DJS SCSP Chelsie 828 Dam to lot 12 - Many Time Champion in 2009 - Maternal Sib to Lot 10 A true great one… This female was raised in partnership with our good friend Kevin Heath. And, before we had a chance to head to Cody, NE to see her we had heard reports from far and wide of just how good she was. Needless to say, the hype she had to live up to was high. But when they are this good it’s not hard to exceed expectations. Chelsie C 210 will win early and run at the majors. The unique qualities she offers are second to none. Especially when you consider how freaky necked, big bodied, stout hipped and good structured she is. This one will without question hang banners and create memories that you will never forget. Her donor dam, Chelsie 269M, is no stranger to raising the good ones. She is the dam of Wendell Dunn’s and Dean Kephart’s AI Sire “Buddy Love” as well as Scott Campbell’s AI Sire “Free 4 All.” And, Samantha Pallas’ many time Champion ShorthornPlus Female from the 2009 show season. All three resulting from her first flush. Without a doubt Chelsie C 210 is the most impressive animal we have had the opportunity to associate with. If you are serious about winning shows and demand a female that will go-on and become a lead donor, this is the female for you. Registered 7/8 ShorthornPlus & 1/4 MaineTainer

2012 will be a coming out party for MAV Charisma. Now with his second calf crop on the ground we can say this is the bull the Shorthorn breed has been needing. He is not only TH & PHA Free but he will add muscle, bone, body and hair to any cow carrier or not. MAV Charisma was purchased at the top of the Iowa Beef Expo in 2010. He was selected for his phenomenal build, killer profile, huge bone and stout hip. He works well on a wide range of cows raising heifers, bulls and steers with very good marketability.
