The Y26 cow is as impressive Red Angus cow as we have seen. She is as long as a train with extra muscling and middle while keeping a feminine look to her. Y26 also has a production record that is hard to match. Her first calf as a bred heifer was the lot 2 bull in our 2014 spring production sale. Her second calf that was sired by Untapped 21z ended up being the pick of our bred heifers going to Mark Barenthsen of Barenthsen-Bullinger Red Angus in Powers Lake, ND, in our 2016 spring production sale. Her third calf was sired by Untapped 21z and was Untapped 5047 who was lot 3 in our 2016 production sale. 5047 we felt was the most complete bull in that sale. We have used 5047 as a heifer bull very heavily on our registered heifers, and is sire to the lot 2 bull in this sale. Calf number 4 was a heifer calf out of Runaway that we feel is going to follow in Y26 steps. She is one of the top bred heifers we have raised and is currently bred up AI. Calf number 5 is 7025 and was a calf we have debated heavily about keeping in our own herd. All 5 of Y26’s calves came first cycle, and both heifers she’s had caught AI on the first try.
2018 Y26 stood at Valentine NE flushing embryos, in May 2019 we put aprox 250 embryos in the commercial heifers. We flushed her to the very best Red Angus sires we could find, this is such an exciting opportunity and we can not wait to get some babies on the ground come spring. Stay tuned!
