From the Road APRIL 11, 2013
It’s been a rainy couple of days here in Indiana, but that hasn’t stopped us from seeing some great cattle and chatting with great breeders! Today our travels took us from Goshen, Angola, Avilla, Churubusco, and Muncie.
We started the day at Mark Kritzman’s in Goshen, Indiana viewing the “Duck Dynasty Calf Crop”, which included Willie, an I-80 Heifer, and Uncle Si, a Full Brother to Heat Wave.
In the words of Uncle Si: “HEY! Listen here, Jack! Them Things are Good!!”
Our travels lead us up to Mark Henney’s, the owner of “Goose” the Dam of our 2012 Popular Sire “Walkie Talkie” Mark had 2 really good Monopoly x Goose Bull Calves. Both were stout, shaggy and soft footed. Goose also had an I-80 son natural that was soft made and hairy as can be! (check out the video we took on this one!) Goose Strikes Again!!
Larry Ott had an impressive set of I-80 Heifers and Monopoly steers. Ron Smithson, from Churubusco, had a real fancy I-80 heifer out of a Monopoly Dam that looks to have an impressive future. Also in Churubusco, Ryan Ott had a great set of Unstoppable calves – Big Bellies, Big Butts and Lots of Hair!
Down in Muncie, Indiana, Tom Borchers had a big time Unstoppable bull calf out of an Imprint cow. One of the hairiest animals we’ve seen thus far. Also from Muncie, Brad Butler had a week old, red Unstoppable bull calf that looks very promising!
