650M was our foundation Angus sire we purchased to use naturally on some of our best Braunvieh females to produce our first McBeef Builder Hybrids. He comes from a tremendous cow family and his sire was a calving ease and marbling leader in the breed. His daughters are some of our best Hybrid cows.
2T28 was the second Angus bull that we selected to use in our Hybrid program to continue adding performance and carcass merit. His offspring have continually been at the top of the carcass ratios and they are full of capacity. The daughters in our herd are big ribbed and some of our easiest fleshing cattle.
2323 was the first F1 Hybrid bull that we selected to use naturally on our first F1 heifers that were all sired by AI Angus bulls on our best Braunvieh cows. He has helped us get our Hybrid herd started on the right foot with his tremendous female producing ability. He is deceased, but lives on through lots of daughters in our herd as well as customers’ herds.
458P is a son of the 650M Angus bull and was one of the top ratioing Hybrid bulls in all categories in SELECTION DAY 2005 where an interest was purchased by Vista Genetics, Texas. Measuring a MGR 108 and IMF of 131, he has become our mainstay on calving ease in our first calf heifers through AI. He has shown his worth in extending our second generation F1 program (F2’s) while improving overall calving ease, maternal strength and marbling.

558R was a top performer and prospect in SELECTION DAY 2006 where Tacoma Cattle Co. purchased a 1/2 interest for his MGR of 105 and REA of 127. A product of an AI Angus sire and one of our very top producing Purebred Braunvieh cows, he is continually in the upper percentile in the Herd Sire Summary for several EPD traits and his offspring are some of the best doers that we have every year. We also use him on heifers through AI.

He is deceased but has left both sons and daughters that are benefiting several herds.
8384 is an outcross F1 bull that we chose to bring some new genetics to our McBeef Builder Hybrid program. His picture can not do justice to the massiveness and overall dimension of this bull. His calves are some of our best gainers and display the volume and depth of rib of their sire. His first daughters are coming into production now and look like they are going to hit a home run. His first bull crop will be in our SELECTION DAY Sale 2014.
