Herd Sires

We have assembled a tremendous group of herd bulls for 2017 to move our program forward. These bulls have all been selected to compliment our newly expanded cow herd and produce calves that will make our customers money.

Prairie Hills Gelbvieh is excited to announce the addition of Two New Sires to our lineup. BABR Dominance 4280B, and WRS Silent Stan 20S.

 

RWG YIKES 1512

We purchased RWG Yikes 1512 as the record high selling bull at the 2012 Canadian National Sale. We were impressed by the rib shape and thickness he presented, while allowing us to infuse our own genetics back into the herd. After seeing his first calf crop, we are very pleased. His calves come very easy, and then hit the ground running. The calves are soggy, deep ribbed, with an excellent hair coat. His first daughter sold in the Canadian National Sale for $7,500 as the pick of our show string, and have since averaged nearly $5,000 on any daughters sold.

COLB MR XAVIER X812

COLB Mr. Xavier X812 was purchased out of the stalls at the 2011 National Western from Collin Berkley. He was second in class to the eventual National Champion Bull. This February born bull blew away the competition with awesome structural correctness, being big topped, long bodied, and posting a NWSS weight of 1280 lbs and scrotal of 40.5 cm. In his first calf crop, he sired the 2013 Breeders Choice Futurity champion – PHG Rockin the Bakken Z17, as well as bulls working for seedstock and commercial breeders in the US and Canada. Xavier has been proven as a wonderful breeding piece on heifers, as well as mature cows.

BABR DOMINANCE 4280B

We purchased Dominance as one of the high selling bulls out of the 2015 Beastrom Ranch sale. He was a member of their Reserve Champion NWSS Pen of Three bulls. After seeing him in Denver, we appreciated the softness and structure that he offered, while still being a performance oriented bull. Our first set of Dominance calves his the ground in the spring of 2016 and we are very impressed. As a group, his bull calves offer awesome thickness and performance, while his daughters are always the first ones spotted in the pasture for their depth and capacity. We’re excited to see what the future holds for this great bull!

DVE DAVIDSON JACKSON 26A

When we purchased Jackson from Davidson Gelbvieh in 2014 we were looking for a new red ‘power’ bull. We ended up with much more. Jackson is proving to be more of a multi-purpose tool than originally expected. His first year he was used exclusively as a heifer bull and averaged 76 pounds. We then bred him to a mixture of heifers and cows, and his 2016 calf crop is truly impressive, with his bull calves averaging 859 pounds at weaning! One of the biggest trademarks of a Jackson calf is their disposition. As a sire group, every one is curious and easy to work with. Jackson is looking like an excellent outcross to red genetics common in the United States.

WRS SILENT STAN 20S

We were lucky to have the opportunity to purchase Silent Stan from Fladeland Livestock in 2015. We typically wouldn’t take a gamble and purchase a 9 year old bull, but after seeing so many Stan calves the past few years, we decided to roll the dice. Stan calves have been dominant through out Canada, with sons and daughters hanging banners at every level. Stan sons are long, thick, and still very smooth made. His daughters are feminine, yet powerful, and have made great mothers with excellent teat and udder size and shape. His first group of sons will sell in our 2017 sale, including 2 very rare black sons. Stan sons averaged 83 pounds at birth, and 835 at weaning!

DTKF EMOTIONS SUCKER PUNCH 116Z

Sucker Punch was purchased out of the stalls in Denver in 2013. We showed him as a 2 year old, and then again as a coming 3 year old. He is probably one of the coolest big bulls we’ve shown. Sucker is one of the freakiest fronted purebred Gelbvieh bulls we’ve son, but combines it with a hip and quarter that blow you away. We’ve used him successfully one heifers and cows, and the result is always the same – moderate, clean, powerful, and cool. His first sons sold in our 2016 sale, including the high seller to Jen-Ty Gelbvieh in Alberta. His first daughters calved in the spring of 2016 and showed awesome udder confirmation and development. We’re excited to see how these females mature and develop.

PHG PAYCHECK C24

When Payday got hurt in 2015, we started looking for a son to retain to replace him. Paycheck quickly rose through the ranks as the stand out of the Payday sons. This bull drove a lot of people crazy during sale season in 2016 – no matter where we tried to hide him, people kept finding him. Combining Payday with a Fearless daughter we purchased from Beastrom Ranch, he is the right combination of thickness with style. As he’s matured and covered cows, he’s retained his softness and is truly impressive. His first calves will arrive in the spring of 2017 and we are anxiously awaiting their arrival!

DVE DAVIDSON PAYDAY 59W

Our senior herdsire was DVE Davidson Payday. We purchased Payday from Davidson Gelbvieh in Canada in 2010. He is possibly the deepest chested Gelbvieh bull we have seen and passes this trait to his progeny. His daughters have proven to be phenomenal mother cows with near perfect teat and udder structure. His sons have consistently been on the top end of the bull sale and are the perfect solution for the commercial or seedstock breeder looking to add depth and thickness to their cow herd. We lost Payday to an injury during breeding season in 2015. His final group of natural sired sons will be offered in our 2017 sale!
