Cut'n Dried, by Cowboy Tuff Chex

Her 2016 son, Cut'n Dried, by Cowboy Tuff Chex, was a choice breeding bull for the 2017 season. Although he was quite impressive, there are a lot of forks in the road for young bulls to be proven great. Even with his good size body, his birth weight was a tiny 64 lbs.

After breeding season, at 19 months

After breeding season, at 19 months he continued to show stunning promise.

27 months old and working 55 cows

Once again back with the cows he is now 27 months old and working 55 cows. He was halter trained as a calf and always shows friendly kindness. He has not been trained in gender correctness, but understands all about it.

Cut'n Dried enjoys clover, timothy and birds-foot-tree-foil grasses.

He enjoys clover, timothy and birds-foot-tree-foil grasses. Slow leisurely walks at the end of day with his favorite cows is normal routine. His horns are growing day and night so fast you can almost hear a slithering sound.

Cut'n Dried at 30 months he is wrapping up the breeding season.

At 30 months he is wrapping up the breeding season. He is now a GOLD STAR bull having exploded beyond the 80" X 30 month bench-mark with nearly 3" extra horn.

Today, Cut'n Dried is in international quarantine at Hawkeye Breeders of Adell, Iowa being collected for real and sexed female semen. Semen orders are being shipped for real flush-quality currently. Sexed female semen will be available in about one month.

The price on Cut'n Dried is $125 per straw, real or sexed.

At DCC a graph chart is used to evaluate all the major sires in comparison to DCC sires. The real numbers tell the truth. Popular sires are evaluated against DCC sires for careful data improvement. The DCC goal is getting great conformation, size, color, horn and all the historic Texas Longhorn value traits on every animal, especially important on herd sires. Cut'n Dried is by far the best semen investment in the industry for quality and price.

The months between age 20 and 36 tell the tale.

The months between age 20 and 36 tell the tale. Before 20 months it is a guess and after 36 the jury should already be back in the box. (All data is published in Arrowhead.) The dots on graph lines are measurements of public record. Although there are other GOLD STAR bulls more than 12 lines can clutter up the graph like a bird's nest.

All Cut'n Dried semen is shipped from DCC. Place orders now to avoid the seasonal rush. DCC has been providing one owner TL semen since 1972. This isn't DCC's first stampede.
