HH ADVANCE 5095C ET
AHA NUMBER: 43579267
OWNED WITH: Coates Ranch of Mertzon, Texas
This year we have an outstanding set of son’s in the sale out of 5095C. We loved this bull when we found him at Holden Herefords 2016 sale and made him one of the top sellers to get him to Texas. His dam is possibly the most productive cow in the Holden program in the last 10 years putting herd bulls all over the country. We like to have herd bulls with that kind of cow power behind them. His sire is an outstanding son of CL 1 Domino 860U. As we have weighed cattle over the last year it seems that the 5095C progeny are always the heaviest. He brings lots of length and growth, but also lots of muscle and pounds. We have another powerful group of 5095C calves
in the 2018 group and will keep his genetics in our herd for years to come.
IMR 3128A ADVANCE 5008C
AHA NUMBER: 43582243
We kept 5008C to use on heifers but he has proved to be much more than just a heifer bull. He is one of four bulls that we added to the program in 2016 and he might be the most complete of the group. He has been one of the best calving ease bulls that we have ever used, but his progeny have average ratios of 100.1 at weaning, 102.8 at yearling, 106.2 for marbling and 100.8 for rib eye area. He was the first calf out of his awesome, young mother who is heading towards our embryo program. She is moderate, deep and easy fleshing with a great udder and lots of femininity. We can’t wait to get 5008C daughters into production and the sons should really build replacement heifers wherever they work. When you look at this bull you will be impressed with how stout, muscular and deep that he is and how well he holds his flesh.
IMR L1 177R DOMINO 5025C ET
AHA NUMBER: 43603505
5025C is another of our outstanding set of young sires here at Indian Mound Ranch. He may be the best looking bull of the group. He is extremely attractive, smooth made, with a long and clean neck. He is still muscular and really expressive in his design. We wanted to keep a herd bull out of his great mother and he really fit the bill. His dam is a full sister to the Cooper Herefords, herd sire, HH Advance 3113N. His sire is the great Gino Pedretti bull, GB L1 Domino 177R. 5025C is straight Line 1 and full of maternal strength. He has proven to be a calving ease sire and we have used him successfully on heifers. The last two years we have given him a strong set of cows and are excited about the future.
CL1 DOMINO 5183C
AHA NUMBER: 43575930
5183C was our pick of the Cooper Hereford Ranch sale in 2016. He is a real tank, deep, thick and powerfully designed. He is also out of a tremendous, power cow, CL 1 Dominette 9140W 1ET, who is the dam of the $160,000 herd sire CL 1 Domino 105Y. He has been good for calving ease and his calves are moderate sized, thick designed with good rib and depth. His progeny have really excelled in Marbling with an average ratio of 108.2. Owned with Coates Ranch of Mertzon, Texas.
IMR HEIR APPARENT 4028B
AHA NUMBER: 43473851
4028B is a proven light birthweight bull that has one of our very top cows behind him. His dam, IMR 8542 Dominette 2052Z, is a big and beautiful cow with a great udder. She had seven popular sons in our 2017 sale and will continue to be a major player in our embryo program. The first daughters of 4028B have calved and they are among our favorite, first calf heifers. They have awesome udders and are really attractive with long, clean necks and are really expressively muscled.
CMF 59Z CONFIDENCE 204C
AHA NUMBER: 43658389
Confidence is a powerful addition to our Polled division bull battery. We purchased him from Candy Meadows Farms in Tennessee and he is doing a great job for us. He is a very long bodied and attractive bull who still packs plenty of muscle. His dam is a perfect uddered, dam of distinction, out of Revolution and going back to Dateline. This pedigree is full of performance and great females. The first calf crop out of Confidence will be weaned in the fall of 2018 and they look really strong.
SR SPOT ON 1214B ET
AHA NUMBER: 43486724
We purchased Spot On from Stuber Hereford Ranch in Bowman, North Dakota but he is straight bred with the best of Ned and Jan Wards genetics. His sire, 88X, has been a force in the Hereford industry with sons working all over the country and his dam, 78P, has an amazing 122 calves registered at the AHA and has been flushed by NJW Polled Herefords as well as Stuber and Upstream Ranch. Spot On is a total meat wagon. You won’t find many mature Hereford bulls with the thickness that he has and passes on to his sons. We will calve his first daughters next spring and we are excited with how they look.
NJW 33TB 100W TRUST 167Y
AHA NUMBER: 43214415
167Y is one of those rare bulls that does everything well. We picked 167Y at Ned and Jan Ward’s sale because he was above average in their herd for weaning, yearling, REA and Marbling while still being very attractive with good thickness and depth. We hoped that he would breed that same total performance into his calves and he has even exceeded our expectations. He sires light birth weights and has an average birth weight ratio of 97.6 on his progeny to date. His calves have plenty of growth and outstanding carcass data with an average REA ratio of 100.3 and an average Marbling ratio of 108.5 on all of his progeny so far. We calved his first daughters this spring and they look terrific with very nice udders. We recently leased 167Y to the Genex Cooperative and they will begin to market semen on him in the fall of 2015.
IMR 408 HARLAND 9038W ET
AHA NUMBER: 42994272
SEMEN FOR SALE: $25.00 per Straw and $50.00 per Certificate
OWNED WITH: Ryan Bullinger, Henrietta, Texas
At the end of the day a strong argument can be made that 9038W is the best bull ever used at Indian Mound Ranch. He is incredibly balanced and does everything well. He is a proven heifer bull and has an average birth weight ratio of 98.7 on his progeny. His calves grow quickly and have an average weaning ratio of 101.7. He has been very strong in the carcass department with his progeny posting an average REA ratio of 100.3 and an average Marbling ratio of 104.1. His daughters are something special with loads of eye appeal and excellent udders and they have posted an average weaning ratio of 101.7 on their calves. His sons have topped our sales for several years and have been extremely popular with our customers. He can do it all!
HH ADVANCE 2037Z ET
AHA NUMBER: 43281591
OWNED WITH: Rocking Chair Ranch, Fort McKavett, Texas and Ledbetter Cattle Company, Wheeler, Texas
2037Z is a powerful individual who is full of muscle and depth. We gravitated to him at Holden’s because he was so complete and we felt he was the stoutest Line 1 bull we had seen in some time. His calves have followed his pattern and are very attractive while being tremendously thick muscled and easy fleshing. His calves have been above average at birth and although we would not recommend him or his sons for use on heifers, we would not hesitate to use him or his sons on mature cows. We will calve the first set of daughters in the spring of 2016 and have very high expectations. 2037Z’s dam is a full sister to the outstanding maternal sire HH Advance 8050U. In summary, 2037Z will add muscle thickness, fleshing ability and overall ruggedness and has a top maternal pedigree.
L1 DOMINO 08542
AHA NUMBER: 42915174
SEMEN FOR SALE: $25.00 per Straw and $75.00 per Certificate
OWNED WITH: Coates Ranch, Mertzon, Texas
The best way to describe “08542” is that he gets better and better with time. We always knew that he was a tremendous individual who is thick, big ribbed, attractive and well marked. Each year that we have used him we seem to just get better calves. His son’s have been popular in the sale because they are so stout and muscular. His daughters are moderate framed with beautiful udders and have posted an average weaning weight of 108.4 on their calves at weaning. Another bright spot for his progeny has been carcass traits with an average REA ratio of 100.1 and an average Marbling ratio of 103.2 on his progeny. We will have many daughters in production and so he will play a large roll in our herd for many years to come.
CL 1 DOMINO 955W
AHA NUMBER: 42982422
We were one of 7 breeders to buy an in-herd breeding interest in 955W after the Cooper Hereford Ranch Sale in 2010. In 2012 we sold our first sons with herd bulls going to two of the top Hereford operations in the United States, GKB Herefords in Waxahachie, Texas and Dudley Brothers in Comanche, Texas. The “955W” cattle combine showring quality phenotype with the stoutness to go anywhere and perform. You will continue to see the “955W” influence at Indian Mound Ranch for years to come.
