The Bulls



The following 3 bulls will be our herd sires for the 2018 calf crop.  We are very excited to see what they produce for us.


Flying V Rampage 22D

2/10/2016 - AAA # 18576546

Quaker Hill Rampage 0A36 x Flying V Sarah 11B


"Alvin's" first calf crop will arrive Spring 2018.  His numbers show a bit stronger weaning and yearling weights, and we are excited to cross him on our Bully & JD daughters.  His sire, Quaker Hill Rampage combines calving ease with some impressive growth and performance.  We hope his son will follow in his hoofprints!  Flying V Rampage 22D was purchased from Flying V Angus, Cleveland, ND.


Expected EPD
+13 -.5 +70 +117 +30



Topp Capitalist 6050

2/4/2016 - AAA # +18639488

Connealy Capitalist 028 x Mohnan Erianna 2576


"Theodore's" first calf crop will also be arriving Spring 2018.  His sire, Connealy Capitalist, is a known cow maker, with known calving ease - that adds body mass and width every time.  His dam is out of Leachman Right Time - a known cow maker, producing easy fleshing, moderate framed cows.  We are looking forward to retaining some nice daughters from this bull in the future.  Topp Captilaist 6050 was purchased from Topp Angus, Grace City, ND.


Expected EPD
+11 -.6 +43 +71 +23


Topp Captilaist 5398

9/11/2015 - AAA # +18438165

Connealy Capitalist 028 x TC Peggy 5092


"Simon" was sought out due to his slightly older age.  We wanted to add a bit more of a mature bull to the breeding line-up.  He is a 1/2 brother to "Theodore", above, through their sire.  Simon's dam is TC Peggy out of the known TC Angus line down in Nebraska.  Her sire is TC Freedom 104, a bull that sires thick, good hipped calves in a moderate package.  Topp Capitalist 5398 was purchased from Topp Angus, Grace City, ND. 


Expected EPD
+5 +1.8 +49 +86 +27




  Bully & JD have served us well, but they were sold Fall 2016.  Their final calves will be born Spring 2017!  It is time to move on to new genetics and we have too many of their daughters in our herd. 


MCD SF Bismark 1309

3/28/2011 - AAA # +17045963

SAV Bismarck 5682 x SBP Rita 5127


"Bully's" first calf crop arrived Spring 2013 and we are very pleased.  Moderate sized calves with good growth rates and gain that are easy to handle and work.  Bully, himself, is a pretty easy guy to have around.  We are excited to add his daughters to our cowherd with his strong lines.  "Bully" is an own son of SAV Bismarck 5682 - who was the breed's #2 registration sire in 2012 - and is a popular calving ease sire that stamps his low birthweight, early gestation progeny with extra ribeye area, muscle shape and style.  SBP Rita 5127 is a daughter of Bon View New Design 1407, a calving ease sire known for producing pathfinder females with eye appeal.  MCD SF Bismark 1309 was purchased from McDonnell Angus.


Expected EPD
+11 +.3 +50 +91 +31




Flying V Upward 136Z

3/14/2012 - AAA # 17359008

Sitz Upward 307R x Stevenson Zara 28T3


We have yet to come up with a name for 136Z, but we are excited about his addition to our herd.  We will be expecting his first calf crop in 2014.  He is a good sized yearling bull, with some great genetics and EPDs backing him.  His sire is Sitz Upward 307R, a strong sire with near flawless EPDs and a pedigree packed with proven production power.  Stevenson Zara 28T3 is a daughter of 21AR Coal Bank C014 who ranks in the top 10% as a calving ease sire and his progeny are known for being deep bodied and good gain.  136Z has a good expected EPD spread and strong calving ease - a bit stronger in both areas than Bully.  He is easy to handle and can be quite vocal especially around the ladies.  Flying V Upward 136Z was purchased from Vandeberghe's Flying V Angus. 


Expected EPD
+13 -1.1 +56 +110 +34

REFERENCE BULL - 2015 AI Bull (for 2016 Calves)

Connealy Right Answer 746

1/13/2007 - AAA # 15832750

SAV Final Answer 0035 x Happy Dell of Conanga 262


With many of our 2 herd bulls' daughters making replacement heifers in our herd, we wanted to breed them out while still being able to keep our boys a bit longer.  We chose Connealy Right Answer 746 for a few reasons.  One, this line is supposed to cross well on SAV Bismark daughters (which we have a son of).  The second, we liked the spread of his EPD's for crossing on our heifers.  We were also looking for 2 similar bred bulls to use on AI for the next 2 seasons to plan for when we need to replace our herd bulls.  We are very excited to see our first AI calves arrive in 2016!


Expected EPD
+12 -0.4 +67 +122 +29



REFERENCE BULL - 2015 AI Bull (for 2016 calves)

MAR Innovation 251

2/3/2011 - AAA # 16983331

Connealy Impression x MAR Final Kahuna 856 (daughter of SAV Final Answer 0035)


This bull we chose to try AI on a couple of our cows.  We chose a bit stronger of values in the weaning and yearling weights while giving up a bit of maternal value - as his get still rate his as far as docility.   He brings a lot to the table while still supporting some of the traits we love about our cows.   And, still being of simliar lines to our other 2015 AI bull.  He is another we are looking forward to seeing calves from!


Expected EPD
+8 +2 +83 +131 +15




REFERENCE BULL - some of our 2014 calves are by this bull.

Flying V Aberdeen 157Z

3/21/2012 - AAA # 17499663

TC Aberdeen 759 x Flying V Pride of Angel 72W


Due to a minor injury that will keep Flying V Upward 136Z out fo the breeding pen for a bit, we had to pull in a back-up bull.  Thankfully, Vandeberghe's Flying V Angus had a replacement we were able to borrow for the remainder of the breeding season.  He is not as strong as a calving ease bull, but has good numbers and is backed by some strong genetics.  His sire TC Aberdeen 759 is a know calving ease bull with low birth weight numbers.  TC Aberdeen 759 has been used to enhance outcross pedigree, calving ease, carcass value and maternal strength.  Flying V Aberdeen 157Z's dam has a lot backing her, as well.  She is an own daughter of Sitz Upward 307R and her maternal line goes to Schaff Angus Valley stock - S A V 8180 Traveler 004 is her maternal grandsire.  We are pleased with our fill-in bull on paper and in person - and anxious to see what he puts on the ground next spring!   Excuse the pictures - I realized just before returning him to Flying V that we didn't have any pictures of him!


Expected EPD
+8 +2.8 +61 +105 +33
