Our females are a major factor to our herd ... a solid base to build our program around. Over the years we've only kept what we consider to be the best ... and now we have some pretty awesome cows. They're wonderful moms ... raising quality calves!
Our Majesty sired females ... have turned out to be nice big framed females, that have thrown a lot of performance in their offspring. The cross with "Secret Service" gave us some pretty amazing cows.
"Hi-Valley Tess 82S" (sired by Majesty)
Our Secret Service sired females ... are a little more moderate in size, and are proving to be very fertile. The Princess influence runs through our herd now ... and we couldn't be happier!
"Miss Hi-Valley Legacy 84Y" (sired by Secret Service)
Secret Service's dam ... "Ivy's Polled Princess 1P" made Show Dam of the Year for 2009 and again for 2010 ... that's two years in a row. She also was the dam of "RPY Paynes Elvis 34X, who made Reserve Champion Bull at Agribition in 2010. In the junior division, she was the dam of "Paynes Princess" who won 1st place. In the senior division, 1st place went to "Ivy's Polled Sweet Touch 4S" ... who was sired by TMF Napolean 734N (Secret Service's sire). Our bull has some pretty good credentials ... and it shows in his calf crop!
Multi-Time Winner ... "Show Dam of the Year" for 2014! That's four times in six years!!!
Dam of "Paynes Derby".
In the fall of 2010 we checked out some fullblood cows that Stuart Chutter had for sale ... and we're glad we did. We brought four of them home shortly after! They're beautiful cows ... two are polled ... and they're all bred to a polled Bar-Dale bull. They're Bodell breeding ... with Harvest Olympus in their bloodlines. Good breeding and good lines! Here's an example of the offspring ...
"Miss Hi-Valley Dusty 83Y" ... sired by Bar-Dale Tyler!
"Miss Hi-Valley Radiance 134Y" ... also sired by Bar-Dale Tyler!
"Miss Hi-Valley Special 34Y"
And special she is ... right from the beginning. She's turned into a real pet. Sired by "Secret Service".
"Miss Hi-Valley Sable 89Y"
This girl is a real favorite of mine. On her mother's side she has "Goldenview Krugerrand 750K" in her bloodline.
Her sire is "Secret Service". She's turned into an amazing cow!
Sable is all grown up now ... and the mother of "Shades". She's still a pet ... and very quiet, a real pleasure to be around. She's bred to "Wulfs Xtractor" for a "2016" calf.
"Miss Hi-Valley Shades 1B" ... shown here as a yearling. She's got the best of both worlds ... "Princess" in her Mom's pedigree, and sired by "CJSL Time Traveler 7051T" . She's a wonderful part of our program now, and delivered a handsome bull calf this spring of 2016 ... sired by "Bossman". Should be a good one!
