FOUNDATION HERD SIRES

We have always selected Herd Sires that represent what we think the most important traits are in the Hereford Breed and in the beef industry.  The most important trait is fertility, of course, and having enough performance to keep you at the forefront of the industry is second in our eyes.  The cow side of any Herd Bull's pedigree is very important and her phenotype is of great value.  She must be fertile, feminine and have good udder structure and plenty of milk.  We do not chase fads and only strive to raise the very best cattle we can and put that in a package that will keep you, our customer, in the beef business for generations.  Here are pictures and footnotes of our current Herd Sires and some we have built our foundation on.  As you will see, our base is Line One, but we throw in an occasoional outcross when we see something in a program that we really like.  The bull pictured above is Monument L1 9841 (40071522).  His is sired by the landmark Hereford sire CL 1 Domino 386 and is out of a Yampa Dominator female.  The 386 line gave him his length of side and hip and puts plenty of milk and performance in his offspring.  The Yampa Dominator brings the fertility, hardiness and efficiency that Herefords are noted for.  His daughters and sons are outstanding. We partner with Bookcliff Herefords, Russell, KS on this foundation sire.  We still use him AI and have also used two of his sons.  The females are special and the sons add performance and style in the herds they serve.  He is a Sire of Distinction and also a Trait Leader in Milk, Milk & Growth, Fat, and Ribeye Area.
 
 G Domino 442 (42534749), another one of our Herd Sires brings performance and depth of body into our program.  He is straight Miles City breeding and goes back directly to 96943 and 920454, reference sires in many herds.  He is owned with Dvorak Herefords, Lake Andes, South Dakota.  He is a Trait Leader in Marbling.
 

UU Special 5248 (42574451), an outcross sire that we own with Bookcliff Herefords, Russell, Kansas.  His calves exhibit length and scale, really grow and exhibit excellent carcass merit.  More ribeye and marbling.  He came from the Van Newkirk herd in Nebraska.  This bull's pedigree traces back to 386 and 804 (well known Line Ones) and also 80S and Yampa Dominators.
 
-G 444 Domino 854U (42949670) is a calf that we raised and are expecting great things from.  His sire is from the Gene Meitler program in Lucas, Kansas.  Gene is known for great, highly maternal and intensely line bred cows that give a lot of milk and have beautiful udders.  854U's mother is a 9213 daughter we raised that has done real well here.  His daughters are working well and are all we thought they would be.  Semen is also available.
 
 
CO L1 Domino 148Y (43190582) came from Ken Coleman and looks like he will give us performance, pigment and strong maternal influence. We went to the Coleman operation because Ken believes in the same things we do. Strong maternal genetics, pigment, and structure, without sacrificing performance.
 
CO L1 Domino 106Y (43190541) also came from Coleman Herefords and for the same reasons. We have used him on heifers with success last spring and again this fall. Both of these Coleman bulls are out of tremendous cows, which is what we expected from Coleman's. Linebred for predicatability, they should do us good and that is what we expect.
 
G22T MAX'S 196 (43178728) From the Gus Gustafson herd at Junction City, KS, 196 was purchased just ahead of Denver last year. There are no finer Canadian cattle than at Gustafson's and they run them like a commercial herd, just as we do. We occasionally like a good outcross, and we think 196 is the one for us. He is out of a very athletic, big bull in 22T and what we think is one of Gus' best young cows. She is very maternal and great uddered.
 

 
152 is the next in line here at Granzow Herefords.  Out of the great 742 cow and our 5248 bull, he is just a fall two year old in 2013.  We will have calves this spring and used him again this fall on registered cows and also on some BWF females that are qualifiers for a Black Hereford program.  He is enrolled in the ABHA sire list.  We have semen available for sale.  Inquiries are welcome.
