Domestic American Aberdeen (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 American Aberdeen (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 Angus Registry (formerly American Lowling Registry) which permits registration of animals that are 50% American Aberdeen (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 Belted Galloway by full blood crosses. 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. American Aberdeen (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, Jersey by full blood crosses, 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 American Aberdeen (Lowline) 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.

Brutus Ltl Brutus is a smaller, linebred Caesar American Aberdeen (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 American Aberdeen (Lowline) research project that separates American Aberdeen (Lowline)s and Brutus from the rest of the herd.

Brutus is the perfect choice to start American Aberdeen (Lowline)s or small cattle. His progeny can be registered as American Aberdeens (Lowline). Now you should have American Aberdeen (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
