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 recently sold for $22,000 to Riverbend Ranches in Idaho.

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.
This Black Granite son out of an Active Duty back to the X212 donor cow has been a stud since we weaned him. A top performance bull, he proved his true value as a breeding bull in the pasture. We use multi-sire pastures and Obsidian had 3 times as many calves as any other bull he bred with. Libido is hard to measure but it pays dividends when you find it. His bull calves on test are outstanding and his daughters will be front pasture cows. They’ll both highlight our 2020 Total Performance Production Sale.
A highlight of the Slagle Angus sale, this Arsenal son has been working on heifers for us for 2 years and has done a great job making soft easy fleshing cattle with more hip and top than his sire. He’s had to be more up to the cows this fall as he’s matured into a phenotypic standout. Stop by the ranch and check him out. His sons will be highlights in the fall division.
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
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.

Semen available from owners. $25 straw/$50 certificate, call for commercial volume discounts.
Added to the program as an elite curve bending sire, this son of the now deceased Plattemere Weigh Up has excelled in that role.

Owned with ADR Cattle Company, Fincastle, VA and Knoll Crest Farms, Red House, VA
Semen available $25/straw, $30/certificate. Volume commercial discounts available.
Selected as a highlight of the 2019 sale at Krebs Ranch after being the anchor bull of their Fall Yearling Division Champion pen of bulls, Outlier has done nothing but impress.

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.
Icon was our selection along with Leachman Cattle Company of Colorado as the top selling bull of the 2018 Wienk Charolais sale. Icon combines a tremendous phenotype with one of the most unique set of EPD values in the breed. The calving ease has been stellar on his first set of calves!
