Sire: VCR Duke 914 M297007 Dam: BE Ashley 281 F629991
(bred by Boyd Endsley)
We call him our “everything in one package” sire. He was an AICA Multiple Trait Leader, an honor he earned from 2007 to 2010 & in 2012. He also was a Yearling Trait Leader in 2007, 2008, 2010 and 2011. Duke Stone is the bull we have worked to breed. He walked the pasture at age 10 and looked great. In 2013, we bred 68 daughters and 60 of his granddaughter, out of 180+ cows. We have permanately retired him and are using him AI. His calves’ birth weights made him a calving ease sire. Their weaning and yearling weights make him a performance bull. His daughters in production are proving him as a maternal sire. His dam was an AICA Dam of Distinction and out of one of our best cow families. See more about her in our female herd section. Duke Stone had a weaning weight of 770, index 117, and a yearling weight of 1319, index 112. He was polled with scurs. Semen is available from this great sire at $20 a straw and $25 signing fee.

Sire: Endsley’s Duke Stone 257 M641628 Dam: EE Veda 294 F951544
(bred by Eric Endsley)
We wanted to preserve the Duke Stone breeding and looked for a son that we thought would be as good or maybe even better. Endsley’s Stone’s Image 748 was an AICA 2011 Spring Mutiple Trait leader, following his sire’s footsteps. His dam is one of our best Abbe WCR A Gust of Wind daughters. She has had 6 calves with an average weaning index of 105.5. Her dam had an average of 105.9 on 9 calves and they are members of the “Elly” cow family mentioned in our female section. Stone’s Image had a weaning weight of 857, 111 index, and a yearling weight of 1446, 109 index. We retired him in 2013. Stone’s Image was polled.
WHITE’S DOUBLE VALUE V208 P M773968
2016 EPD’s BW 2 WW 35 YW 79 MILK 5 MTNL 23
Sire: Polled Divine S217P M723141 Dam: Polled Miss Value Mac F1046125
We purchased this bull out of the 2010 Michigan Cattlemen’s Bull Test, where he had the highest weight per day of all the bulls in this multi-breed test, at 3.66 pounds. He gained 4.15 pounds per day on test, placing him 6th over all. He had an adjusted REA of 14.03 with a 226 square inch pelvis. His adjusted weaning weight was 810 pounds and his yearling was 1376 pounds. Bred by Pat White of Allegan, Michigan, we found this bull’s potential to add to our herd was great. He was polled. UPDATE- Unfortunately, Double Value was injured during the 2011 breeding season. We had some outstanding calves that were born in 2011 and had a few born in 2012. We find his daughters are an asset to our herd.

Sire: LT Western Edge 4057 PLD M686616 Dam: Endsley’s Calida 418 F1001661
We are impressed with the Western Edge cattle we have produced, so we looked for a son to use on our Duke Stone line. Perfect Edge comes from one of our best cow families. His dam and granddam were AICA Dams of Distinction. His dam weaned 9 calves and has an average index of 104.9. Her dam weaned 10 and had an 105.6 average. His milk EPD is in the top 4% of the breed. Perfect Edge had a 760 pound adjusted weaning weight and his yearling was 1352 pounds. His calves are easy calving and have great performance.. He is polled. Update: We are more excited about “Ed” every year. The calving ease has continued and the growth is tops. His daughters are extremely easy keeping cows that are doing a great job for us. He passes his gentle temperment on to his off spring

Sire: LT Western Edge 4057 PLD M686616 Dam:Endsley’s Hadria 313 F976051
When the Polled Value bull got hurt, we again chose a Western Edge son out of a solid cow family. His dam weaned 8 calves for us and has a 103.5 average. Edge Guy had a 717 pound adjusted weaning weight and a yearling weight of 1211. His first two calf crops calved easy and are growthy. We had to decide between keeping him and the “Ed” bull. We decided to keep the bull we picked out 1st so the 2014 calves were his last. We are finding his daughters are good cows and will value him for that. He was polled

Mark had an adjusted weaning weight of 786 and his yearling was 1328. “Mark” has met our expectations with his calves. We retired him at the end of 2015. He was polled/scurs.

Sire: Schurrtop HCR Rancher M 474774 Dam: Endsley’s Carmen 022 F1116414
Cow families make good bulls and this young sire is out of one of our best. His granddam just calved at 13 and has always been at the top. His dam is following her with style. Carmen is a M6 Grid Maker that we love. Schurr Grid had a 723 adjusted weaning weight and a 1257 yearling. He got hurt late in the 2013 breeding season, but his 2015 calves came easy and then they grew. Carmen gave us a replacement – her 2014 calf is a full brother we used. Scurr Grid was polled.
