He definitely sires more muscle than any other low birth weight bull we’ve used. We’ve now calved dozens of his daughters over several years, and can say that they make easy calving, attentive and trouble free mamas. Game Day is also one of the best udder improvers we have used in a long time.

Reference Sire C: GAR US Premium Beef reg. 14301014 GARPB

Premium Beef is one of those bulls that the AI studs don’t find “sexy”…he’s not the highest or most extreme bull in any one area. But the cattle are very profitable, with great carcass traits (Marbling, Ribeye Area and $Beef all rank in the top 20% of the breed). Direct Calving ease is good, and Maternal Calving Ease is even better. Premium Beef daughters usually come back from the desert fat, pregnant, and with a healthy calf at side. These are the kind of cows that make money for commercial cattlemen.

Reference Sire E: Sinclair Net Present Value reg. 14311951 Sinclair_Net_Present_Value

We have gone back to using this bull based on how his daughters performed. Back in the fall of 2010, we calved out our first set of two year olds on the Derrick Ranch near Fort Rock. While calving, the heifers grazed dry native rangeland with the mature cows. Many of the first calf heifers sired by some notable AI bulls failed to breed back. The daughters of Net Present Value bred back and remained in the herd. Net Present Value ranks in the top 1% of the breed for $W, and the top 20% for $EN. Net Present Value sires low birth weight, high marbling cattle with gentle dispositions, especially suitable for grass-fed or Certified Angus Beef branded marketing programs.
