She needs to be a special kind of champion to make it to the Donor Pen at BSG. Cow family name is not the ticket, so pedigree is out. Physical attractiveness only gets one so far in life, so that’s not the exact avenue either. It’s production. It’s how she produces and how that production is measured in value that makes one a great cow. They must have had some skin in the game, and their efforts needed to have counted for game-winning points. Not every donor is a carbon copy of production, either. We have customers who want more power and pounds out of the calves they wean, while others are looking to maximize calving ease and shorten the growth curve of their herd; but regardless donors in our battery are consistent for one thing; genetic profit. Take a look at the females below. If you are interested in investing in embryo’s call Phil. He is always happy to share about matings for sale. Limited number are available for export.

Rarely does one come across a cow so balanced and well-rounded in EVERY SINGLE category for donor-pen analysis, but 458B hit nearly every single target on the bullseye. Phenotype, Outcross Pedigree, Unmatched & Proven Production Record, EPDs, $Value Indexes, Fleshing Ability, Color, Docility; you name it and 458B gets an ‘A’ every time. The dam of our power sire, RUSHMORE, 458B is writing her own chapter in Shorthorn history quietly. Watch for more progeny at BSG and Spry’s in Australia.

The day we came across 2024 in the pasture at Rensselaer, I whispered to Phil, “Game Over.” I have never seen a Shorthorn cow in the flesh as impressive as 2024. Ever. The true Power Cow of the American Shorthorn population today, and one of the most unique performance females of the entire 20 million head in the IGS Multi-breed Genetic Evaluation. This is why we don’t just flush her Shorthorn, but to bulls of other breeds as well; her genetic value is of interest of anyone wanting to maximize the profit of beef seedstock, regardless of breed. Think of everything a Power Cow should look like and 2024 does it; stout-boned, huge-hipped, massive barrel, but also jerk-fronted and feminine. Some of the wisest stockmen we know have invested in 2024, that’s why you can find her influence nation-wide in the USA, up in Canada, over in Europe, and down in Australia. She is getting up there in age, inquire early about her influence, and don’t be afraid to reap the benefits of her ShorthornPlus contribution.

BSG CHERRY PENNY 711

Owned by Spry’s Shorthorns, Wagga Wagga, NSW, Australia. The Cherry name is the most prolific at BSG in terms of sheer numbers; what producers they are. 1833 surfaced as one of the most unique in some time being in the Top 1% CED and spreading that to the Top 15% YW. She ratioed 118 for WW and 117 at YW. All of this being said, she is in the Top 10% for $BMI and Top 5% for Australia’s All-Purpose Index (API). Being jam-packed for calving ease with Conquest and Task Force, but a hell of a pounds-added performer with the original 4R03 showing back up, made her a logical choice for Spry’s Shorthorns. Type & kind wise, well, Gerald found her pretty quickly, if you know much about his eye, you can trust she is a great one. Contact Gerald Spry for genetic opportunities. https://sprys.com.au

Owned with Schafer Angus Ranch, Orland, CA. 1244 has always been at the forefront in our eyes as one of the really good daughters produced by Stampede. Being a Rosewood, she has Stayability built in; that cow family has been in the herd for all 25+ years we have had the Shorthorns. She is the dam of the great BSG Stayability at Leveldale who produced some of Les’ high $Value brood cows in his time. After beef quality? This cow is a genetic freak for Marbling, being one of the breeds very best. You can find progeny from Indiana to Iowa to California. Look in if you want to add quality look, brood cow design and carcass merit to your program.

She has been the pick of many visitors over the years, and because of her daughters has recently entered the donor program.

“The Dam of Great Sires” as Dr. Bert Moore put it. 73R’s story is best told through her sons like Task Force, Banjo, Mapleton Earl, Profitwise, Maximus, Wise’s Great Plains and others around the country. A cow that looked like a $Million every time you turned around and produced the high profit kind. A diverse portfolio of production, her son Task Force still ranks of as one of the breed’s Trait Leaders for Calving Ease and Profitwise maintains as a Trait Leader for Weaning Weight, while both being extraordinarily high for $British Maternal Index. She had it all, and we miss her roaming the hills in east-central Indiana. Few embryos left, but some still available.
