Semen: The surest, simplest & easiest way to start American Aberdeens (Lowlines)!

From great fullblood American Aberdeen (Lowline) bulls $25

From Belted Galloway and Belted Galloway by full blood crosses $25

From Jersey by Jersey full blood crosses $25
There are brief bios on all bulls, with fullblood bulls only one or two generations out of the Trangie Research Project that started it all.

There are two fullblood bulls excellent for first calvers and small heifers you want to calve safely. They are also great in reducing size, especially when used on full sized dams to get Aberdeen qualities in one pass.

In addition, there are two belted bulls. Belted Aberdeen/Lowline calves have been very profitable and share a wide market, but while the beef is supurb they are far too valuable to harvest.

We also have a Wagu bull. Consider putting the most expensive beef genetics in an animal or two.

Brutus (7M 9849) 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.

LTL Muggs exhibits a concentration of American Aberdeen (Lowline) power in a very small frame. University of Idaho ultrasounds show that, pound-for-pound, he has full American Aberdeen (Lowline) potential for large rib eye area, good marbling, and low back fat. LTL Muggs is ideal for size reduction without sacrificing quality in any breeding. Perfect for the small market, size reduction or small first calvers.

Brenton's Best (7M 46)
He has the size that is ideal to add American Aberdeen (Lowline) genetics to halfblood calves while keeping both size and calving ease. Perfect for the proven direct market of 1/2 blood American Aberdeen (Lowline) beef. He is also an excellent choice for American Aberdeen (Lowline) seedstock with beef production in mind.

His dam is S006, Matilda. She was ultrasounded at the National Western Stock Show. She had 1.5 sq. inches of rib eye per hundred weight and marbling of 6.52% (high choice) on grass feed only, as a yearling. His sire, Brenton, has produced a number of winners at the National Western Stock Show.

Brenton's Best
Cany Branch Bullseye (7523D). Don't miss this chance! Bullseye is a third generation small dun-colored Belted Galloway fullblood homozygous belted. He is a "good luck charm" with a high propensity for a belt and unique markings regardless of what you choose to breed to. Red dams give red calves and blacks give black calves. Whil Galloways are great beef, the belted calves have been way too valuable to kill.

$25 per straw
