MAY 2016 BULL SALE
LOT #1 TRIC C-NOTE 001B (HUNDRED X TOAST)
Birth Date: 2-19-14
Birth Wt: 89
C-NOTE is an easy choice to lead off the sale as he has been a standout since birth. Massive thickness, bone and depth of rib with a great disposition. His pedigree is stacked with maternal strength for carcass and performance by the likes of Abigrace 7730 and Lass 8238. His dam is a donor cow daughter sired by Toast, the low birth weight son of Mullberry26P. We expect this sire to deeply impact our breeding program and are retaining 50% interest in this bull.
LOT #2 TRIC 747 023B (DOOLY X BOEING)
Birth Date: 4-1-14
Birth Wt: 98
In the beef business pounds pay and this impressive DOOLY son will sire a calf crop that weighs down the scale. Backed by a great Boeing daughter, 747 is heavy muscled and loaded with power while remaining very functional and smooth walking. He will replace his sire in our breeding program. We are retaining 50% interest in this bull.
LOT #3 TRIC LAST CALL 064B (LAST CALL X CANYON REB)
Birth Date: 5-6-14
Birth Wt: 86
064B is a combination of our top herd sire LAST CALL and Toryanna 9243, the dam of DOOLY. He is a great example of what stacking proven maternal lines and performance can do. His mature frame will be moderate and easy keeping. Daughters of this bull will be ones to watch for as they come to production. This bull has long been a favorite of mine and we are retaining 50% interest in this bull.
LOT #4 TRIC EXIT 098B (EXIT X NEW TREND)
Birth Date: 4-4-14
Birth Wt: 88
The differences in the very top bulls in our offering are very subtle and the truth is our order often comes down to pedigree and how much we can use a bull in our own herd. 098B is the only 2 year old bull we have to offer this year from his sire, EXIT 2628. We actually bought him back at weaning after selling his dam as a bred cow and are glad we did! Top growth and moderate frame built from a pedigree developed on convenience traits. This is a very good bull and one of my favorites.
LOT #5 TRIC RIDER 028B (RIDER X BOONE DOCTOR)
Birth Date: 4-6-14
Birth Wt: 89
This bull got a "WOW!" comment from our ultra sounder Dr. Shawn Nicholson as he laid the transponder on his back. This bull combines several donor cows in the pedigree and his dam is a maternal sister to C-NOTE's dam, our lead off bull. Nice length of body and stylish head cap off a great phenotype.
LOT #6 TRIC DOOLY 024B (DOOLY X SILVER BULLET)
Birth Date: 4-2-14
Birth Wt: 82
The second of three DOOLY sons in the offering, 024B blends some calving ease with growth and performance into a nice package. His dam Bieber Lass 294S is a donor cow daughter and is also the dam of our herdsire TRIC BOONE DOCTOR U338.
LOT #7 TRIC DOOLY 032B (DOOLY X CHEYENNE)
Birth Date: 4-7-14
Birth Wt: 80 TWIN
032B is the last DOOLY son in the offering and carries his trademark thickness. He is a twin and a combination of calving ease and growth. His Cheyenne dam has done a nice job for us.
LOT #8 TRIC HUNDRED 016B (HUNDRED X COMM)
Birth Date: 3-26-14
Birth Wt: 84 TWIN
This is another twin bull that has really developed a long and great profiled body. Please note that he is a commercial bull as his dam is not registered and he has a small tuft of white hairs on his forehead.
LOT #9 TRIC BOONE DOCTOR 073B (BOONE DOCTOR X ROMEO)
Birth Date: 6-8-14
Birth Wt: 103
This bull has the most length and frame of any in the sale. His birth weight is a bit surprising and we attribute that to the fact that his dam spent almost 45 days longer on a TMR ration before calving. She was mated the same way the previous three years ranging from 84 to 89 pounds. He is a very solid bull.
LOT #10 TRIC MAKE MIMI 071B (MAKE MIMI X RAMBLER 1000)
Birth Date: 5-29-14
Birth Wt: 91
This is an embryo transfer calf from the 9141 donor cow who has produced three herdsires for Biebers in Xception, Gunslinger and Boeing. His full sib sister is our very best first calf heifer and she was born at 73 pounds.
LOT #11 TRIC HUNDRED 036B (HUNDRED X TC FRICTION)
Birth Date: 4-10-14
Birth Wt: 52
036B is a BLACK red carrier bull. He is a very moderate framed and easy fleshing stud that will stand up to heavy use in a heifer breeding program.
LOT #12 TRIC LAST CALL 052B (LAST CALL X CHEROKEE CANYON)
Birth Date: 4-22-14
Birth Wt: 47 TWIN
Another great calving ease bull coming from a powerful ET donor cow dam 10051. She has an MPPA of 108, an ideal udder and a moderate correct frame. His disposition is outstanding and comes directly from his sire.
LOT #13 TRIC LAST CALL 069B (LAST CALL X RAMBLER 1000)
Birth Date: 5-25-14
Birth Wt: 62
Recommended for calving ease and heifer breeding, 069B also comes from a donor cow dam. Blending Tilly 9557 with LAST CALL stacks two high performing dams in the pedigree. He is the most docile bull in our offering.
LOT #14 TRIC 9X 096B (9X X MRM LANCER)
Birth Date: September 2014
Birth Wt: NA
We sell our fall calving cows and this bull's dam was one of them. Fortunately, we are able to buy back most of the calves to offer in our sales. We don't have a birth weight on him but are very confident recommending him as a calving ease bull. His dam is a great Bieber cow from the Topper line. He has always been a favorite of mine.
LOT #15 TRIC 9X 097B (9X X TREND SETTER)
Birth Date: November 2014
Birth Wt: NA
This fall born bull is another great choice for calving ease. His dam is an ET daughter from Green Mountain Red Angus of Montanna. His sire is a top bull that we sold in 2011 sired by Brown GOOD ONE.
