We didn't originally intend to have any white cattle on the place, but our daughter decided that she has a passion for the white ones and I think we should always encourage our children's dreams. So we've embarked on a great adventure and added the white cattle to the place, and boy do they stand out. We strive for the same traits with our Charolais that we do with our black cattle. We want good mothers, solid feet, perfect udders, and maternal instincts that come in a smaller efficient package. Phenotype isn't the most important thing on our list but, it costs the same to feed a pretty one as it does one that's not so pretty. We feel we have a great start in the white cattle and we're excited to expand on our small program and make it the best we can make it.

This is a really cool Charolais heifer. We were looking for an outcross to get some hybrid vigor for our termal commercial program, and I think this heifer is a good start. She begain life as a bucket calf and boy did she exceed everything we hoped for for her. She boasted good growth numbers and exceeded our expectations. Time will tell, but she may be one that ends up being a donor. I was and am still grateful for the opportunity to have her. Not many breeders would've not only sold us a bucket calf but let us have the papers as well. They gave Emma her start in the white cows and we're always thankful for the opportunities we get. We're expecting a crossbred calf out of her and our X-tra Easy son. She'll be bred to DTR Mr. Brightside for a 2023 calf. We're super excited to have this opportunity.

Here is Emmas newest Char heifer. This is a really powerful heifer. She is very square hipped and has a lot of rib. She plans to show her this year and make some really pretty show babies out of her moving forward. When she's done she plans to make some really nice hybrid or seedstock cattle out of her. She may one day even earn her place in our donor pen. This heifer is a beast.This heifer will also be bred to DTR Mr. Brightside.

This heifer is not quite a showy as her counter part but she is a good solid heifer that we plan to show first and then move her to our budding charolais program. She is super femanine and should produce some really nice solid cattle for the kids moving forward. She will be bred to LT Landmark for a 2023 calf and then the sky is the limit after that. We're excited about this cross and can't wait to see what we get.
