This fancy ½ blood was Grand Champion Simmental bull wherever shown at the Nebraska State Fair, Iowa State Fair, The American Royal, Kansas City, North American in Louisville, and the greatest of all stock shows the National Western in Denver. He’s about perfect in his phenotype. My good friend Stan Sears from California and I were watching them judge the show and when he won we decided to buy him. He is by Steel Force out of an OCC Legend daughter. He had a 64# birth weight so we bred him to quite a few heifers. He cost us $15,000. He really held his flesh well after we turned him out to breed.

Clear Vision C266 has been a stand out and a favorite from day one. His blaze face, great neck extension, perfect hair and curve bending numbers with his massive depth, width, and bone make him a true outlier. C266 is sired by deceased Shocking Dream, who is also the sire of STCC Long Haul, and out of a stand our first calf heifer. C266 had an impressive 793#WW.

Yardley Gib is the real deal all the way around. He’s named after the legend himself, my dad, Gib. He has the look, the potential, and the pedigree to produce the show stopping kind. He is sound as a cat, big topped, big footed, with plenty of look and style. Search the nation over, you just don’t find purebreds this good! His elite and highly productive dam has averaged over 700# WWs on five calves, with a weaning weight ratio of 106.

Joy’s Elegance was Grand Champion in Denver in the Junior show and matured into as picture perfect cow as she was show heifer. A true test of a great show heifer doesn’t come in the showing, it comes in her ability to produce and transmit the same look and quality in her offspring. Joy’s produced $106,000 in progeny sales this past year on four head with one of the most consistent flushes ever produced at Griswold Cattle. The two yearling heifers produced are proving to be as competitive in the show ring as their great dam. Nickels n’ Dimes is big topped and complete with plenty of rib, dimension, style and power with a killer look. This is the kind of bull to change a program with!

Y1 High Regard was the $30,000 high selling bull in our 2010 sale to John Goken and Dale Werning Families of SD. Sired by Yardley Impressive x Y1 Pinion. The calves sired by High Regard are stout, cool made, and consistent. He is siring sale toppers across the country demanding as much as $100,000. Another daughter was just crowned Grand Champion at the prestigious and tough Simmental Junior Nationals, the American Royal and Denver. High Regard hails from generations of good uddered, broody made females. They are real world cattle that will work in the show ring and we know will work in the pasture. As a complete outcross to Dream On he is the go to sire for functional, consistent quality.
Yardley High Regard is powerful the whole way through, but keeps the soft look through his rib and muscle shape. He’s a big footed stomper that fills in his step, super sound and correct on his front and rear wheels. He had a 17.1 ribeye area, 3.67 % IMF, and 40 inch scrotal as a yearling. Zane Yardley has AI’d our cows for over twenty years. M211 on the bottom side of this pedigree was one of his favorite cows. Outcross pedigree with power and style make this bull a favorite. He was the $30,000 high selling bull in our 2010 sale to John Goken and Dale Werning Family. He was a crowd favorite with many contending bidders.
We consider this bull one of the best we have ever raised. I am as critical a bull buyer as there is in the country and there isn’t a single thing I don’t like about Utah. He has perfect phenotype every place you look at him. I don’t like high tailed. I want them square over the tail head and he is. We consider his dam to be the perfect built, moderate sized cow and as pretty and good as any cow we own. His beautifully designed maternal grand dam was a stellar $7,700 feature in our sale that sold to Greg Kroupa of White Lake, SD. Utah has experienced great success in our program and at Wernings in Emery, SD with several calves selling for over $15,000. A daughter of his was crowned Champion at the West Virginia State Fair.
