Domestic Lowline Semen Sales

The choice of semen depends greatly on the direction you want your breeding program to take and what you will do with the progeny produced. All Lowline-based calves do very well in a number of situations. There are many choices.

Semen from full blood bulls allows the registration of calves in the American Lowline Registry which permits registration of animals that are 50% Lowline or greater. Using full blood bulls, it is possible to breedup to 7/8 % or purebred status. Percentage bred animals are in good demand since they offer so many possible directions, (beef, seed stock, pets), and sell at a partial price of full bloods. Here smaller, with good quality, is better. Choose Ltl Muggs at 32 ins.

The next choice would involve either Bullseye Jr. or Oreo. Both of these bulls are Lowline and Belted Galloway. Since the belt is dominant, there is a 50:50 chance of small belted calves. They are brothers and their dam was a 33 in. Lowline bred by Caeser. Here you win either way. High novelty appeal and value for either sex, and great pasture to plate beef potential.

Last, but far from least there is Hershey Lowline and Jersey, produced by our smallest animal, Ltl Muggs. "Jerlines" are the result of research we did for local dairies to solve the Jersey bull calf problem. These have so low a value that many are killed at birth. The cross produces an animal that is full bodied, with great beef potential for the males and an all around female with out any peers. The ultrasounds and taste tests prove superb beef and milk potential in the same package. They are far beyond the potential of Dexters and others bred for dual purposes. This is the ultimate "All Around" cow.

We believe strongly in quiet and gentle bulls. We have selected carefully for these traits along with the qualities that make Lowlines a breed apart for their proper niches. Simply choose your direction or directions and "Go for it". All semen is $30 per straw with no minimum. We have made ordering as simple as a phone call. Call Hoffman A.I. at (435)753-7883 and you will be cared for quickly and professionally. Doug Coombs there can also give you his views on the bulls since he has had them there in quarantine for the collections.

WRR Fritz FM 17349 Fritz is a classic, registered, fullblood, Lowline bull. He weighs 1090 pounds.

Fritz was sired by Trangie Roustabout, a mid-sized favorite that came direct from the Trangie herd. At the time the research was completed the herd was dispersed.

Roustabout reflects the best of the many dollars and years spent on improving returns to Australian beef producers.

Fritz's dam has both Brambletye Utah, (FM731), and Brambletye Union Pacific, (FM74), in her pedigree.

He shows high marks on his Ingenity profile for marbling, yield grade, and calving ease, and favors a heifer pregnancy rate.

Brutus Ltl Brutus is a smaller, linebred Caesar Lowline bull with the best certified ultrasounds we have seen to date on any animal (see additional information below).

Both sire and dam are very easy going and smaller in stature. Brutus will breed true.

He is a return to the qualities produced by the original Lowline research project that separates Lowlines and Brutus from the rest of the herd.

Brutus is the perfect choice to start Lowlines or small cattle. His progeny can be registered as Lowlines. Now you should have Lowline size, quality, and efficiency with 1/2 blood calves from any reasonable sized female. He is ideal as a sire for smaller heifers (safety with quality), and as an alternate for Ltl Muggs to reinforce all the good stuff. He is ideal for breeders who want smaller, high-quality, even-tempered cattle.

$30 per straw with quantity discounts available

Jerlines, JLOs, or Jersey by Lowline crosses
Jersey by Lowline crosses offer the "best of all worlds". They are one of the best outcrosses of our smaller Lowline bulls. These smaller, gentle, easy-going calves offer the best pasture-for-plate beef because of the positive marbling and a lower seam fat gene inherited from both sides. The high-milk-potential heifers mother great, fast-growing, calves with enough extra for an additional calf or personal use. They are pets, beef, seedstock, and value in one small package.
