For 2010 Calves:
LT WESTERN EDGE 4057 PLD M686616
2016 EPD’s BW -0.1 WW 35 YW 70 MILK 19 MTNL 36
Sire: LT Western Spur 2061 M645786 Dam: LT Duchess of Mac 7076P F792993
An AICA Yearling Weight, Maternal Milk, and Multiple Trait Leader. He had a 834 pound weaning weight and a 1469 yearling. He is Homozygous polled. We visited the LT Ranch in South Dakota in 2008, and were very impressed with the uniformity of the cattle. We decided to add the LT genetics to our herd through AI. Western Edge is one of the few bulls that could match our Duke Stone for EPD’s in all categories. We have used two of his sons and their daughters are great. Our Perfect Edge sire is his son.
M6 GRID MAKER 104PET M633377
2016 EPD’s BW 0.5 WW 31 YW 63 MILK 17 MTNL 33
Sire: WCR Sir Tradition 066 M318119 Dam: VCR Miss Mac IV 317 F665163
An AICA Milk Trait Leader and has been a Multiple Trait Leader. His daughters are gaining a reputation as outstanding brood cows, there are 1170 of them in production. We find this an important trait for us to look at because of our relatively small herd. He is also an outcross pedigree for us. He is the sire to Endsley’s Carmen 022, the dam to our two Rancher sons.
For 2013 to 2016 Calves:
We continuw to use AI to get out of herd genetics. We have been using the following:
