This guy is a 3/4 blood Maine that has that big bodied, moderate frame on top of being super stout, tons of muscle and big footed. He is out of the Swoosh cow the Martin Family was so successful with in the show ring and sired by the popular Unstoppable bull. He should work well to produce sound, Maine influenced cattle both heifers and steers. He also offers outcross potential along with his completeness.

Complete ~ this is the one word that comes to mind when you see this Eye Candy son. A little more extension and frame on a very sound skeleton and big foot. All that along with an unbelievable hair coat that’s a given with any Eye Candy progeny. What excites us the most about this bull is his mother. She’s a Who Made Who daughter out of the famed Hunter’s Ruby cow family. This is what, in our opinion, makes this bull a true “Maternal Legend”. This was our pick of the John Sullivan herd this summer and we feel Luxury Tax will leave his mark at a very young age. Put yourself in a new tax bracket this coming year with Luxury Tax.

Truly the most complete Eye Candy son we have found. This one is a must use bull. Chain Reaction was one of the most talked about bulls in Denver 2013. Many top breeders said he has it all. He was one of the highest selling club calf bull prospects in 2012 commanding $67,000 for 3/4 interest. As a 2 yo bull, we are very happy that he has developed and stayed true to the look he had as a yearling. Make Chain Reaction a one stop shop for your club calf operation.


Sire: Walks Alone Dam: Eye Candy’s Full Sister DOB: 3/1/12 BW: 90 lbs. THC/PHAF Bred by: Trausch Farms Raised by: Depies/Goehring, WI Owned by: Trausch Farms Semen: $30

This bull has demanded such excitement since he was on display in Denver. Throughout the year, he was on everyone’s order list. The calls have been coming in and he is still commanding the same excitement. As one breeder said, “his Sugar Rush calves are the best he has ever raised”. He is a “freak of nature” was a comment made to us. Sugar Rush is adding bone, hair, muscle, and body mass, with a rocket front end. He needs to be used on medium to moderate framed cows. We feel the excitement will continue throughout the Fall as we sold semen to over 22 states in 2013 and look forward to the 2014 orders that are pouring in fast and furious. So call early and get this guy on your breeding list as a must use bull as he was and still is, one of the most popular bulls in the country.

He seems to be working on a wide variety of cows adding a ton of hair, bone, thickness and style to burn. There are so many good parts to Nasty Habit, it’s hard to put a hole in him. Order semen early, it is going fast!

Here’s a full sib to Master of Puppets and Monopoly. Same genetics, tremendously predictable bulls. Hurley does not disappoint. He’s big boned, big footed and loads of style. Hurley can be bred exactly like his full sibs. He was turned out to pasture at Trausch Farms last spring and got the job done. We are very excited to see his calves later this spring. The bull will not disappoint.

This bull has a ton of performance and growth, loads of body, is big footed, sounds as a cand and has all the right parts to make some really functional cattle. He was extremely well received in Denver 2011, as a bull that you really can’t put a hole in! Use him with confidence, if he is anything like his mother, his legacy is just beginning!

The word “breeding tool” is the term used by many across the country to describe this Char cross bull.

To top it off, severall semen companies and many customers have said he is one of the best smokey bulls they have seen in a long time. We are selling semen across the country on this bull.

The blonde bombshell. Cattlemen from all walks of life fell in love with 90 Proof in Denver 21012. He is just so eye appealing. He possesses the great ability to produce great show calves as well as awesome replacement breeding stock. With that show steer look, 90 Proof was such a hit with everyone who saw him, that ABS picked him up right away in Denver. “This one should make the slick shear steers we need in Texas” as said by a reputable cattle producer. While another cattleman from Wyoming said, “he is more interested in the females his bull could produce.” This bull just hits all aspects of the cattle industry. Whether it’s breeding cattle or show worthy livestock we feel this dual registered individual brings a lot of quality to the table and will produce the right kind for todays times.

This bull should produce the same type of calves that were winning all across the country. His name says it all... style, swagger and oh so cool.

Blueprint’s mother was a standout show heifer for Winegardner’s and so has Blueprint since he hit the ground on the coldest day in Ohio. Blueprint has 2 of the hottest pedigrees behind him in the club calf industry with Breathe Easy and Eye Candy. So with that being said, we feel Blueprint is going to be a sure bet with his cool look and balance that he possesses. Mate your cows to Blueprint and get yourself a “Blueprint” of a calf.

Wow! Talk about a cool lookin’ dude! He may be “Young” but he will definitely make you some “Money”. This is by far one of the neatest Eye Candy sons to surface and we are pleased to say we not only raised him, but now have the opportunity to promote him along with his other owners. If you like them chubby, big topped, cool colored and as shaggy as Justin Bieber’s haircut, this bull is what you have been waiting for. His mother is a Shorthorn powerhouse that has been a “no miss” female in terms of production.

It is hard to find a double clean bull with this much mass.

Chore Boy

Finally a TH Free & PHA Free bull that can show you the power! His calves come with lots of hair, bone and mass. Hired Man quite possibly might be the one we all have been waiting for. To top it off, we have seen quite a few baldy calves out of him. Hired Man calf reports have been between 85 to 95 lbs. and are very consistent. Hired Man works great on Heat Wave and Heat Seeker cows, as well as Angus and Shorthorn cows. We’ve found that using Hired Man on those shorter spined cows that need to be powered up seems to be working the best. He has sired many great bulls and show calves across the country and his calves have topped a lot of sales. There is no where to go but up with this bull. He is definitely living up to his reputation of being one of the great sires.

Original sin

We are so excited to be part of this bull. We feel he fits perfectly into our current bull lineup with impeccable genetics. He offers so much mass, hair and bone. Hulk is a son of the popular Smilin’ Bob X the great WAG Hairietta cow. No doubt his dam probably has more prominent son’s out there in the club calf bull lineup than any other Who Made Who in the country. Smilin’ Bob also has great cow power behind him as well with Foxy Moxie. With these two great females behind him, this bull is sure to produce powerful calves both steers and heifers. We highly recommend use of this bull with confidence.

Well we finally have what we have been waiting for. A double clean, black Eye Candy son. He possesses so much body, muscle, and bone with a big foot that strides out perfectly. Add to that his thickness and hair and you would believe him to be a carrier. Original Sin was bred by Gabel Farms (CO) and was bought in 2012. The first calves have been outstanding and were the top selling sire group at Rushley Bros. Fall Club Calf Sale. His calves are so consistent and marketable we can’t say enough good things about what this bull has to offer. Sired by Eye Candy and out of a great cow, there is sure to be plenty of maternal power on top of everything else he has to offer.

Here is a coold baldy, 1/2 bood Simmental bull, sired by Eye Candy, out of Black Bear dam, that possesses all the characteristics to leave a great set of replacement breeding stock in your herd. Not to mention the show calves he has the ability to produce given his pedigree. With the milk, structure and added hair that Eye Candy passes on, combined with the Simmental characteristics of Black Bear, this bull is sure to be a hit.

This bull is huge footed and big boned for being double clean and throws extremely good hair as well. His sire is an Ali out of Smilin’ Bob’s mother called Big Dog that has been a very consistent producer for Gartens in Kansas. If you are looking for a consistent bull with a different twist to pedigree this one will raise show cattle that are easy to sell all day long...he’s already proven that!

A bull all of us have been waiting for. His dam is the $82,000 valued record-setting top seller of the 2005 Frozen Gold Sale. She is a foundation Habanero X Draftpick cow that surpassed the $150,000 mark in sales. Northern Ice has a sister named PUPS Dream Girl who is one popular young lady and already off to a good start in her early career with a Tyson heifer who sold for $6,000 this past fall and a flush that sold for $7,2000. Northern Ice calves come small, with vigor and grow rapidly. What a calving ease bull in a TH free and PHA free package whose calves become stout, hairy and sound that can be sued in clubby, maternal or commercial herds. He will produce progeny that will work and be profitable. Show’em, sell’em or keep’em - you won’t go wrong. Did we mention proven?

Naughty Pine is swiftly leaving his mark on the club calf industry. His calves are the most consistent of any bull we have ever used. He flat out works on every type of cow we have bred him to. Naughty Pine is becoming a must use sire to produce calves that sell high and win shows. His calves are very consistent with loads of hair and bone, puttin together the killer look that everyone is looking for. Use him on your deeper ribbed, softer flanked females and you will be producing champions.

This simmental bull is destined to be a breed changer. Cookie cutter calves is a term we associate with Muhammad’s calves. His progeny are long fronted with tons of hair. This TH & PHA Free bull is being used by many breeders with carrier cows from border to border. Plus, he’s a great out cross for Dream on genetics. Muhammad has sired the Grand Champion Pen of Three Percentage Heifers, 2007 NWSS and the Reserve Grand Champion Pen of Three Percentage Heifers, 2008 NWSS. Muhammad’s daughters are making awesome cows, with beautiful udders, consistent birth weights and style to burn. This bull can do it all, from the show ring to the pasture. He is the one to try for 2013. Plus, Muhammad’s sire, Mr. MT and his dam, Nichols Julia F34 have both written their success stories right here. Both his sire and dam have passed on the ability to transmit genetic success at a highly consistent rate in both male and female progeny.

Here is an Angus bull that is too good to be true. We find he works real well on 2 year old females and also has the ability to make very marketable, complete steer calves. His calves have topped sales across the country in the past few years. He is one of the most used purebred Angus bulls in South Dakota. This bull puts a big foot, bone and loads of hair in his calves. Cowboy Troy has been a very successful part of the Trausch Farm breeding program, as well as many top herds across the country. Finally, here is a Purebred Angus bull that has the ability to make show steers on clubby cows.

TFR High Cotton should have the ability to transmit genetic success at a highly consistent rate in both male and female progeny.

A different twist genetically with one of the most consistent producing Hereford cows of all time. Here is a bull that possesses a great amount of natural muscle and balance. Use Paparazzi on Hereford females needing extra style and power and you will be more than impressed.

Cyrus is a son of BR Moler, the national Champion Hereford Bull, 2005 NWSS. He is backed by the very successful show heifer for Luke Schroder, CRR D03 Cotton 356. Cotton has wrote her own chapter in history. As a calf she was named the Champion Polled Hereford Heifer, 2004 National Jr. Hereford Expo, the American Royal and the NAILE. Cyrus has the rare ability to transmit genetic success at a highly consistent rate in both male and female progeny. More importantly, what excites us the most is the fact that Cyrus is a great bull in his own right. Here’s what breeders are saying, “The Cyrus calves we have on the ground are the most consistent, stoutest Hereford sire group I have ever had.” “This bull is definitely going to sire show steers and show heifers consistently.”

TFR Cyrus

Bentley has become one of our more popular Hereford bulls here at Trausch Farms. He has style, soundness, tons of rib and loads of hair. Bentley was named Division Champion Horned Bull for Kaden Wilson at the 2009 Hereford Jr. Nationals in Tulsa, Oklahoma and has done nothing but get better since then. Truly one to keep an eye on.
