When Scott Hughes arrives at the ranch, and says he is hunting a special bull, it is a long drawn out deal. He wanted to see every adult herd sire, the cow herd, different aged young bulls and their sisters and brothers. Scott is not a new comer to the Texas Longhorn business and has traveled the nation and kicked tires at a lot of ranches. After looking all over the Appalachian pastures he said he would be back. And he did. He came a second time after the bulls had developed a few months and looked some more.
Scott Hughes, of White Pines Ranch, Rutherfordton, NC, has owned a lot of good cattle. He has a quick eye and a quick wit. At Dickinson Cattle Co we were honored that he selected our young bull Tuff It Out to purchase. We are more honored that he has searched the country-side for months for the right bull, and we were able to provide him.
Tuff It Out is a son of Cowboy Tuff Chex out of Winning Smile by Winchester who is out of a Fielder daughter. He is an embryo transfer result of 14 embryos recovered and 9 calves raised. Tuff It Out is long, tall and has excellent horn and gain data. Good things will happen from this bull's genetics.
Early this morning Tuff It Out stepped on the new 32' trailer and headed to Rutherdfordton. It is a new world to him. He will do well.
Galen Eberly who has made valuable deliveries for DCC for many years had just purchased a new 32' Eby trailer. Tuff It Out was the first critter to christen this spotless brand new trailer, and he will. History is made again for all the right reasons.
Thank you, Scott.
