The top selling bull of the 2018 Total Performance Production Sale to Swanson Cattle Company and Glover Cattle Company, Warwagon looks like he’s going to make a mark across three breeds. This highly fertile 1682 son put up 1,600 units of semen in about 3 weeks at stud and has continued as a breeding bull in the pasture (picture taken at Swanson Cattle breeding pasture). Both his Safeguard dam and Rocky granddam are beautiful moderate framed females that are highly fertile and consistently early calving. His combination of a 10 CED to 120 YW, a top 20% $B and exceptional phenotype make him a bull that fits a lot of industry needs and one we are excited to have calves out of.
When we saw the first calf crop out of this maternal brother to our foundation herd sire Upgrade, we knew that we needed to add this Cash son to our program. His calving ease and docility are second to none while his sons are making great commercial heifer bulls and his daughters will be front pasture cows. Owned with Moore Angus, Artesian, SD.
Semen available from owners. $25 straw/$50 certificate, call for commercial volume discounts.
One of the cowboys’ favorites at the ranch for his look, ease of flesh and his docility. His sons are making great curve bending sires for our commercial customers while his first set of daughters are our best uddered two year olds. The phenotypic quality he transmits is an extra bonus to the numerical figures he puts together with every economically relevant trait in the top 25% of the breed. His mother by Hoover Dam who produced Complete as her first calf just produced a $25,000 sale highlight this spring at Woodhill and is one of their up and coming donors.
Semen available $25/straw, $30/certificate. Commercial volume discounts available.
Added to the program as an elite curve bending sire, this son of the now deceased Plattemere Weigh Up has excelled in that role. We calved 150 commercial heifers bred to him this spring with zero issue. They come small with vigor and grow. The heifer calves out of him will make outstanding replacements. Owned with ADR Cattle Company, Fincastle, VA and Knoll Crest Farms, Red House, VA
Semen available $25/straw, $30/certificate. Volume commercial discounts available.
Coming to Wagonhammer as one of the highlights of the 2017 Knoll Crest Farms sale, this son of 1682 is out of a full sister to the Select Sires featured K C F Bennett Fortress. His full brother sold for $70,000 to Kolberstein’s in Colorado. Stockade impresses with the product that he puts into a sound package. He combines elite growth with moderate birth weight and calving ease figures that we look to improve as his first calf crop gets to weaning time. These will be highlights of next year’s sale. Owned with ADR Cattle Company, Fincastle, VA and Knoll Crest Farms, Red House, VA
Semen available $25/straw, $30/certificate

Kingsman was our selection out of the Zehnder-Waage Partnership pen at the 2018 NWSS where he was described by judge John McCurry as the most unique bull in the show. He combines that high quality phenotype with a great disposition and a balanced set of numerical figures. He was a favorite during his time at stud and has continued that trend among visitors to the ranch. His 2019 calf crop should be exciting. Semen available $30 straw/$30 certificate.
Foreman is the product of a proven mating designed for multi-trait excellence and is homozygous polled. His dam and grand-dam (dam to WR Travel Agent) both serve as donors in our program.
