Building the DCCI BueLingo Foundation Sire Program

In 1986 the first efforts by the Dickinson family were started to develop a quality Buelingo herd. It was difficult to start due to very few Buelingo available and less for sale. Each breeder was in the herd building stage and would not sell quality cattle.

The foundation Buelingo cattle were registered with one Buelingo parent and numerous breeds were blended early in the program.

In the late eighties, DCCI was well known for being serious producers of registered Salorn, Salers, and Texas Longhorns. The DCCI Salers (many French imported embryo transfer cattle) and Salorn were bred to either a Dutch Belt bull or registered Buelingo (mostly Hammer Jack of FX). DCCI had purchased a small herd of registered Black Angus and they were also bred belted.

With this humble beginning, 150 beautiful Buelingo breeding females are now producing at DCCI. Some of the highest quality Buelingo are available for purchase year 'round. Folks wanting to start a herd can now call DCCI for breeding cattle, and/or frozen semen from the best genetics.

With each generation and each new sire selected for the breeding herds at DCCI, critical evaluations were implemented. Every bull was weighed at birth, 205 days, 365 days, and annually. Conformation, pedigrees, disposition, milk production, and mothering ability was evaluated. Today the DCCI herd is a successful result of these 20 foundation sires building one generation after another on the best of the best quality stock.
