The base of our cow herd are daughters and granddaughters of Endsley’s Equity 362 (M389440). He was a son of HCR Senator 9052 out of our “Elly” cow family. His dam, her full sister, and their dam were all AICA Dams of Distinction. He was an AICA Milk Trait Leader in 2005, 2006, & 2007. He was used natural service until he was 10 and really left his mark on our female herd.
We have used sons and a grandson of Serendipity-Bond-007, the grandsire of the great NF Agatha 9851. His son, NF Elliot 9515 (M427806), was an AICA yearling Trait Leader in 2002 & 2003. Elliot’s son, Endsley’s Lazer Stone 182 (M617251), was also a Yearling Trait Leader in 2005, 2006, & 2007.
We have used LT Wyoming Wind 4020, AI, and a son of his, Abbe WCR A Gust of Wind (M485984), natural service. We have also used TW/Link Bud My Guy 002P, a RC Budsmydad 225 son, AI. We like his daughters so well that we have used two of his sons. Endsley’s My Hi Spade 329 (M662671), out of a Gust daughter, that was an AICA Dam of Distinction. And, Endsley’s High Mark 628 (M725109), out of a CJC Trademark H45 daughter, that is an outstanding cow. We purchased a semen interest in HF Buds Perfector KB433P (M606049), another Budsmydad out of an LHD Mr Perfect Y416 daughter. His daughters are some of our best females. The Budsmydad female line is making a good cow base for us now.
We have used Baldridge Kojack 29, AI and have several daughters in production. They are very good cows that are positively contributing to our cow herd.
Our Senior herd sire is now Endsley’s Duke Stone 257, a VCR Duke 914 son. He is out of the dam of Endsley’s Lazer Stone 182, BE Ashley 281. She was an outstanding cow that produced until 11. She had 10 calves with an average weaning index of 106.4. That qualified her to be an AICA Dam of Distinction. She came from our “Suzy” cow family that has been one of our top families. Her dam had an average of 101.3 on 4, next dam back 107.5 on 11, next one back 102 on 13. We now have 64 Duke Stone daughters in production and they are very impressive. Read more about this AICA Multiple Trait Leader bull in our Herd Sire section.
Over the years, we have had 55 females qualify to be an AICA Dam of Distinction. When you consider the fact that we only run about 135 cows, this is an impressive fact. We use our performance record extensively to keep the kind of a cow herd that can produce four AICA trait leaders in the last ten years. Please feel free to come and visit us and see what we think is an outstanding herd of Charolais cows.
