Lover Boy’s Genetic Line

We went to the Denver Stockshow and wanted to buy the Simmental Purebred we liked the best. We looked at about all of them there. There are so many bulls of all breeds that have bad feet and a lot of people aren’t paying any attention to it. Their hooves are either too small or many of them have outside back toes that curl under or else they toe out on front. We have tried to watch this very closely because our cows have to walk and trail the year around as many of yours do. We finally found one at the last minute. He looked good every place you looked at him with no holes in him and the best feet we had seen on any bull in the show. We had to catch a plane to go home and we gave them a check for $25,000 for him about 3 or 4 minutes before he was to show and left for the airport. HE WAS PICKED GRAND CHAMPION SIMMENTAL OF THE SHOW! He is one of the deepest made bold ribbed Simmentals we have encountered.

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.

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!

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.

When I had the opportunity to walk through the ’15 Werning offering Fully Loaded 654B was the stand out higher percentage bull to sell. He is bold in his design, loaded with meat and muscle, and sound as a cat on his feet and legs. He is a highly productive son of the curb bending $47,000 Lock N Load. He had an 87# BW, 850# WW, 1,426# YW, 38 Scrotal. His carcass data was equally impressive. The combination of phenotype, performance and carcass combine to make Fully Loaded a must have package.

Whirl of a Dream was the pick of our Simmental bull calves five years ago. He’s big topped, large scrotaled, with bone and great muscle shape. His dam B75, has been a top producer for us. She raised this calf at 17 years old. He weaned off at 712# with no creep and she was fat when she came home. A wise cattleman once told me if you love the cow, breed one of her sons and you’ll replicate her. There is performance with power in this pedigree. We couldn’t be more pleased with the daughters he’s left us. They are functional, big ribbed, thick made cattle with performance. A couple years ago his calves averaged higher than any other sire group, averaging over $7,000.
