Unusual, Unique, Economical, and Maybe Brilliant

DCC Ranch e-News #271 - 3-18-22

by Darol Dickinson

Everyone who owns a bull wants to sell semen for $200, $300 or even $1000 per straw. Don't let these exorbitant prices cause discouragement for using AI for rapid herd improvement. Everyone has alternatives. Here are some economical, different, and possibly smart directions to go with sire selections that are a little off the main grid.

Jubal Jangler

Jubal Jangler Semen $25. He is sired by the excellent-type sire Over Kill and out of Shadow Jubilee ($120,000) one of the first over 90" cows. Only a few straws available. He has sired Joe Kid and some over 100" steers. https://www.texaslonghorn.com/reference/index.cfm?con=reno&Reg=I-251023

Recon So

Reckon So $50. He sires the tallest calves of any bull used at DCC for years. He is a Winchester Futurity winner, weighs over a ton and measures 86.5" T2T. https://www.texaslonghorn.com/reference/index.cfm?con=reno&Reg=I-269121


Showman semen $100. He is homozygous black. Every calf he sires will be black or black and white. If you want black and it keeps escaping, he is a black-trap. https://www.texaslonghorn.com/reference/index.cfm?con=reno&Reg=I-286387


Shadowizm semen $35. Only a few straws left. Every calf he sires will be a half brother or sister to the all time famous Jamakizm. A trip back into history could bring back another Jamakizm -- well worth a try. https://www.texaslonghorn.com/reference/index.cfm?con=reno&Reg=I-224581

Westward Ho

Westward Ho semen $15. He is a favorite for show calves. He sires excellent conformation and black all over the arena. He is the last great son of Jet Jockey out of a huge thick-beefy Senator daughter. Not much semen left.

If these unique genetics, some old and some new, don't strike your fancy, all the great bulls are listed on this order form. https://www.texaslonghorn.com/inventory/semen/semen.pdf
