Herd Sires

The search for the right Angus herd sire seems to get tougher all the time. We spend a lot of time searching through AI Stud catalogs to find the right bulls to breed our cowherd to. The real joy lately is finding that you've bred or own a bull that you like more than what's available in the studs. Below are the bulls that we have recently bred or acquired that have seen or will see heavy use in our program. We are excited about these leading Angus herd sires and the impact they have left or will leave on our program.


Kesslers Commodore 6516
Registration Number: 18545936
Sire: Connealy Comrade 1385
Dam's Sire: Summitcrest Complete 1P55
Our 2017 high selling bull to MR Angus Ranch, Wheatland, WY who eventually joined the lineup at ABS Global. Commodore calves are born at a consistent birthweight just below or at calf crop average and in our herd they've been the largest sire group and heaviest average weaning weight in the bulls every year that we've used him. As he sees more use across the country his sons are weighing at the top of their contemporaries and are right at the top of sale reports. His daughters are becoming great young cows. He's a calving ease bull whose calves smash the scales at weaning and are packed full of carcass quality - that's hard to compete with anywhere. Semen is available through ABS.

Kesslers Foundation J049
Registration Number: 20154534
Sire: Tehama Patriarch
Our 2022 $27,5000 high selling bull. He's a heifer safe option that's got great feet and is one of the widest made Angus bulls we have seen in awhile. We are excited to use this bull in future breeding projects here on the ranch. Owned with MR Angus, Wheatland, WY. Semen is available.

SITZ Resilient 750J
Registration Number: 20011059
Sire: Sitz Resilient 10208
Dam's Sire: Sitz Upward 307R
Our pick of the Resilient sons in the 2022 Spring Sitz Bull Sale. We found him to be the most complete "no holes" type of bull in the pen. He's deep-sided with a huge hip while maintaining a clean-made, balanced herd bull look. His dam is an absolutely gorgeous 12-year-old cow that's still in production. We hope to feel the positive impact of 750J on our herd for years to come. Semen is available.

SITZ Inspire 729J
Registration Number: 20003665
Sire: SITZ Stellar 726D
Dam's Sire: Poss Achievement
An extremely massive, wide-made bull that we couldn't stop thinking about after going through the bulls at Sitz. We think he was the best Stellar son in their 2022 Spring Bull Sale and look forward to how his soft-made look will complement our cowherd. 729J is owned with Birch Creek Ranch and Triple L LLC. Semen is available.

Kesslers Frontman R001
Registration Number: 15180461
Sire:
Connealy Front Page 0228
Dam's Sire: TC Rancher 056
Frontman is a solid calving ease bull with moderate frame, heavy muscle, and great feet & legs. His sons have been standouts in our sales and have topped sales across the country. Frontman daughters have gorgeous udders, great structure, and have proven themselves to be one of the elite sire groups in our herd. We are simply in love with the Frontman/Ten X mating and find those to be some of the best cattle in our herd.

KR Cash 5212
Registration Number: 18238021
Sire: Barstow Cash
Dam's Sire: Lemar Windy 43S
We purchased Cash 5212 in the 2016 Krebs Ranch sale. He was the leadoff bull in the 2016 National Western Reserve Champion Pen of 3 and was the heaviest yearling weight bull of the Krebs Ranch bulls in Denver. The Krebs Ranch crew found him to be one of the stoutest built, highest performing, biggest numbered sons of Barstow Cash to sell in 2016.
