Lenth Herd Sires - Present & Past

Here at Lenth Herefords, we have continued to keep up with the times to be able to offer breeding bulls and replacement females that will be productive for our purebred and commercial customers – and also allow us to keep rebuilding our own herd with a variety of bloodlines to continue meeting the needs of our many ‘repeat customers’.   That means finding and using Herd Sires that complement our Cowherd, introduce strong new bloodlines, build on their strengths, and offset any weaknesses.

If your priority is to find Sires with strong calving-ease traits, we have Herd Sires with excellent EPD’s and actual low and moderate birth weights.  Our Polled Herd Sire Victor 31X was a son of the well-known Victor 719T.  He was added in 2011 specifically for calving ease.  With a CED of +8.0 he was in the Top 1% of the Breed for calving ease, and still top 15% of breed for both WW & YW growth.  We have several of his daughters in our herd and our last calf crop from Victor 31X is on the ground in 2015.  We also have several Cows in our Herd sired by our Past Herd Sire Marshall T111 who was in the top 1% of Breed for both WW & YW, and also cows sired by Burley 444 and Homebuilder 706 that are particularly strong on the growth sides.  Crossing those cows with Low BW bulls have produced super calves for us.  Due to customer demand, we’re working towards a predominantly Polled herd, using all Polled herd sires now, some being tested homozygous polled.   In 2014 we added four new Polled Herd Sires, each from strongly recognized bloodlines and their calves on the ground now in 2015 show how successful those matings were.  They have sired solid offspring that will allow us to continue to expand the bloodlines that we can offer to both our new and repeat customers in the future.

Victor was purchased in 2011 from Topp Herefords in North Dakota, and we’ve been very pleased with what he’s brought to our operation.  Our goal was to cross his extremely strong calving ease and low birth weight traits (still with good growth) with the frame and growth already existing in our heifers and cow herd.  Particularly, we were looking to cross his traits with the top growth and size from our Marshall T111 polled daughters.  The stage was set – and we were not disappointed.  His calf crops have attested to the calving ease with light and moderate BW’s in both heifers and cows, with 150 calves sired by him at an average BW of 74 lbs.  Their growth has been strong, with many spring calves weaned with Adj205 weights above or near 700 lbs., and many raised by 1st-calf heifers.  Calves are mostly dark red with a lot of pigment - bulls are very thick and the daughters are very feminine with beautiful udders.  Particularly strong matches have been the Victor bull calves out of Marshall T111 daughters.  His last crop of calves are on the ground in 2015 and will be offered this Fall, but over 25 of his daughters have been retained in our Herd too.  His influence will be felt in our herd for years.

Another strong Polled Bull that we added to our Herd Sire group in 2014 is this extremely thick and wide topped bull out of the noteable SHF York 19H Y02 sire.  We purchased him from the long established BAR JZ operation in South Dakota, with the hopes of producing thick and deep ribbed calves.  He also boasts impressive EPD’s, every one being significantly better than breed averages with significant strength in calving ease and growth areas.  With an impressive yearling REA of 14.17, we used him as a yearling on a group of small-to-moderate framed cows that could benefit the most from that boost.   With his first crop of 14 calves on the ground in the spring of 2015 we were totally impressed with what we’ve seen.   Thick, deep ribbed, heavily muscled, and very consistent, all with an 81 lb. average birthweight.  Success!  Take a look at his calves – we think his bulls will particularly go fast.  We used him again in the Fall of 2015 on a group of cows, and he’s running with another full pasture of cows now in 2015, already working on his 2016 calf crop.

A homozygous polled son out of the well-known AI Sire ‘Redeem’, our own Redeem 1305 is a total package!   He was an impressive bull calf at weaning when we purchased him, and we continued to be more and more impressed as he grew through a tough winter to a yearling weight of 1,262 lbs.  He was used as a yearling on small group of our top young 2-4 year old cows and in the Fall of 2014 on a group of cows.  He maintained his condition easily and continues to grow.  His first calves are now on the ground in Spring 2015 and they are dynamic!  The only problem is – we wish we had more of them.  With nine beautiful heifers, but only four bull calves, there is a uniformity in them that is easy to see.   His calves averaged 81 lbs. actual birth weight and were all born unassisted.   There will be more of his calves coming this Fall, and he is running with a full pasture of cows in 2015.   We are looking forward to a long run of his calves in our operation.

This new addition to our 2015 Herd Sires is a son of the popular National Champion Trust, and a flushmate to the Trust 224A bull we used last year.  Every one of his EPD’s is substantially better than breed average, with not only low BW, but high marks for growth and milk. His own mother is a super young Dam-of-Distinction.   He is homozygous polled, like his sire, strengthening the polled blood in our herd.  Having seen this year’s calves that we have from his flushmate 224A, we are excited to add his bloodline into our herd.   He is running this summer in 2015 with a group young cows, as well as clean-up on some females that we A.I.’d first.   We purchased him from the well-known Bar JZ ranch in South Dakota, and are anxious to see his first calves in 2016.

A son of the increasingly popular sire ‘Cracker Jack’, this deep red herd sire is also making a strong impact on our herd.  Added as a yearling in 2014, he was used on the majority of our heifers that summer, we moved him late to a pasture of larger cows, and we also used him on our Fall heifers later in 2015.  He certainly did his job in the pastures, and his calves now on the ground in 2015 are exciting!  Siring eight calves from our own heifers and cows, and many from the heifers we sold, they are extremely active and vigorous at birth.  Our two bulls averaged 82 lbs. and six heifers averaged just 74 lbs. at birth.  Many are deep, dark red like him, and all are growing quickly.  With such good results, he is running with our yearling heifers again this Summer in 2015.  Some of our repeat customers have specifically requested that their next heifers ALSO be bred to Cracker Jack 1313, which we are doing.

Shadow is an extremely long-bodied horned bull that brings a strong outcross into the horned side of our program.   His Sire, GH-Adams Shadow 144S, was a Canadian calf champion and he is still on the Upstream Ranch ‘Herd Sire’ listing.  Shadow has a very wide top and deep hind quarter, with excellent WW & YW numbers – both in the top 10% of the industry.  We purchased Shadow in late 2010 as a bull calf, and his first calves hit the ground in the Spring of 2012.  They were also thick, muscular, long-sided, full of energy, and following in their father’s footsteps.  We’re using him more extensively for both Spring and Fall 2013 calf crops, focusing on matching him with many of our best ‘horned’ cows, to offer an even larger group of his calves in future seasons.

In order to continue developing a strong Polled line option within our herd, Marshall was added in 2008 as a yearling bull. His growth and natural thickness were both what we were looking for in a new Polled herd sire, and his first calf crop in 2009 showed immediately that he is passing along both traits to his calves. While still on the cows, his first calves quickly stood out as some of the largest framed calves, with tremendous natural muscle and growth. Marshall was used on a small group of cows as a yearling, moving on to a full pasture of cows the summer of 2009, and both Spring and Fall cows in 2010. We’re excited to now be offering his calves, mixed with our own polled and horned foundation cows, which are always exciting crops of calves to watch. His first two crops of calves had tremendous gains, with 3.0-4.0 weaning ROG’s the first year and 2.5-4.0 weaning ROGs the next year on a larger set of cows. If you’re looking for Polled bulls or heifers – offering size, growth, and a lot of meat – take a good look at his offspring. Owned by Lenth Herefords.

This thick, solid bull is being used in the summer of 2013 on our polled Victor heifers.  With his actual birth weight of 78 lb., and 3.7 BW EPD, he is a great fit for young heifers.   He also has a strong backing for maternal traits and growth.  His sire is from the UPS Odyssey line, and his Dam has extremely strong ‘Lenth Herefords’ roots.   Her sire was Homebuilding 706, our first Sire-of-Distinction, and her mother LH MS DSIGNR 221 had many of our top calves over her 16 years, including several State Fair winners.     We’ve been impressed with this young Herd Sire’s growth, and are excited about what his calves will bring in the future.

This son of the popular National Champion Trust was used in 2014 on a group of heifers, some that we kept and some that were sold as breds.   Every one of his EPD’s was substantially better than breed average, and his calves are showing that those were good indicators.   With only a handful of calves out of our own replacements, we have been very impressed with their conformation and early growth.  At least two of his limited daughters will definitely be added to our own herd as replacements.  Even though we offered him to another herd, we purchased another flushmate of his as a replacement to him (Bar JZ Custody 422B ET).

This powerful bull has quickly become a dominant herd sire for us. His natural muscle, deep rib and rear quarter, soundness and overall growth rates are all being passed on to his offspring. Line bred out of our foundation JJL1 Homebuilder 706 sire and LH MS Dsignr 414 dam, his calves have been the first-picked bulls and heifers sold each year since we’ve begun offering them. The calves are consistent and extremely uniform and can easily be picked out as ‘his’ offspring. Burley has been used for both spring and fall calving crops, and still maintained his weight while on full pasture feeding. We are very excited about each new crop of calves, both as herd replacement animals, and to be able to offer top quality bulls and bred heifers for our customers. Owned by Lenth Herefords.

RH STANDARD LAD 0313 is a line bred we produced which is a sired by our 0024 bull and out of RH MARKETTE 034R which is a BBH MARK DOMINO 918 grand-daughter we raised.  This moderate frame bull is loaded with red meat.  He had a 16.01 ribeye measurement that adjusted to a 15.5 yearling score.  He also has the proven marbling our cattle maintained for many years.  The 76 lb. actual birth weight is another asset he offers, before we even start to talk about the many powerful cows behind him.  This is 034R’s first calf and she has proven that she gives it all to the calf.  You will see that in her first heifer calf which was a 2004 sale feature and sale top selling female.  The 034R cow comes from a foundation line of cows that have done well for many years.  The sire side of the pedigree is also loaded with many powerful milk cows with great udders.  This line of cattle has a lot of guts to them.  They have big fuel tanks that they can keep full of fuel to cover the ground each day.  If you don’t have a big fuel tank these days, you won’t get too far.  This bull traces back to AGA 105 STANDARD 13IW four times plus many other great sires like SR MARK I J215.  The breeders that have seen 0313 leave many compliments.  He is a near fault free sire. The Hereford breed needs sires like this that are an all-purpose sire, strong female with good milk and udders, low birth weights, extra ribeye area, the thickness that everyone wants, with that show eye appeal.  Owned by Reynolds Hereford and Lenth Herefords.

In 2009 we added this Herd Sire that we raised out of the RH Sandman 034 sire. We are using this yearling bull on heifers both because of his moderate frame and his low birth weight expectation. ‘Moe’ as we call him, is actually a triplet. His Dam LH MS DSIGNR 258 had all three calves on her own, and raised two of them (Larry & Curly) herself. Moe was moved to a surrogate cow and thrived, developing into a blocky little bull, full of natural muscle and thickness with a deep rear quarter.

This dark red, goggle-eyed bull was home bred and raised from crossing two of our foundation herd lines.  We combined LH DSIGNR 328 (a son of JJ L1 Homebuilder [SOD]) with LH MS DSIGNR 212 – a Dam-of-Distinction who was also the daughter of our very first Dam-of-Distinction.  The maternal deck was stacked when you see his pedigree and how many Dams-of-Distinction and Sires-of-Distinction were on both sides.  With a YW of 1,800 lbs., Bandit showed super growth and heavy muscling.  We used him the first two seasons on heifers, then on to some of our mature cows.  His calves had plenty of red, many with red eyes, red-to-the-toe and red necks with very little white.   This bull was used by Lenth Herefords.

Homebuilder 706 is a bull that left a very solid foundation in our herd, both in the females and sires that he produced.  Because of his strong daughters, and the number of them reaching Dam-of-Distinction level, in 2012 Homebuilder 706 reached ‘Sire of Distinction’ level in the American Hereford Association, just like his own Sire and both Grand-Sires.   His sons LH DSIGNR 048, LH DSIGNR 328, and LH DSIGNR 444 (Burley) and his grand-son LH DSIGNR 620 (Bandit), were each used for several years, passing along Homebuilder’s traits.  Future generations continue to carry on the tradition of high production cattle through the many Homebuilder daughters and grand-daughters still in the herd today.  This bull was used by Lenth Herefords.

LH DSIGNR 048 and his calves set new standards to work from.  048 put the pounds on the scale with a weaning weight of of 820 pounds, a 365 day weight of 1385, and a two year old weight of 2320.  His calves at weaning time were consistently grouped in the upper weight brackets. His mother LH MS Dsignr 414 was a standout in the herd - a red-eyed red-neck medium to large framed cow with lots of flesh.  She was a cow that when she walked by you, you would notice her milk and her big thick butt. 048’s calves were mostly dark red necks, with very little white.  His calve’s disposition only had one minor problem, they were almost too gentle. This bull was used by Lenth Herefords.

This Polled bull sired many meaty, growthy polled calves while he was used in our herd.  His deep rear quarter and medium-to-large frame added another element to our herd, giving us good crops of Polled calves that we sold as both breeding bulls and bred heifers, as well as keeping some to deepen our own herd.  Look at that Birth Weight EPD of 1.7 – that’s the type of calving ease we all look for.  Used by Lenth Herefords.
