The last three years we have been looking for females that are unrelated to the genetics we currently have in our herd. Our first purchase was Precious Z35. We own a half interest in her with Ehlke Herefords. She has been placed in an embryo transfer program. Three embryo transfer calves will be born in January 2020. Precious Z35 has an outstanding phenotype, is a complete outcross genetically and produces dark red offspring.
AI Sire Information
Bar Star Magnitude
The latest additions to our herd
Edna E160 is a half sister to Edna D157. She shows the consistency her sire, Hometown 322A ET, produces with dark red color, smooth top line, outstanding udder and docile disposition.
Fireplay E164 traces back to Harvie E MS Fireplay 19Z, one of Ehlkes's excellent donor cows. She is a large framed cow that is a complete outcross to our herd. As a bonus, the heifer calf she is carrying will be out of TH Frontier 174E, who is also a complete outcross as well.
Edna D157 was purchased in 2018 to provide
outcross genetics with more muscle mass and
dark red pigmentation. We expect her to
produce excellent bulls and show steers.
E332A Edna D157 is a very wide and long cow that shows great muscle development while still remaining very feminine. She has an eye catching bull out of Bar Star Magnitude born in January, 2020. Edna is the second super female we have purchased from Ehlke Herefords.
E T719 Precious Z35
Precious is a beautiful dark color, has an outstanding udder and will add eye appeal to her calves. We can hardly wait to see her embryo transfer calves out of Digby and her natural calf out of Bar Star Magnitude. We own half interest in Precious with Ehlke Herefords of Townsend, Montana.
Churchill Lady 7313E ET
Churchill Lady has a January, 2020 steer calf out of Bar Star Magnitude. If you are looking for a show steer, this could be the one! She is pictured above as a weanling calf at the Churchill Sale in 2017.
Foundation Females of the HCH Herd
H&S Donna Duramiss
The Hagen's had two cows named to the current Dam of Distinction list. The first cow is H&S Donna Duramiss who was born in 2012. She has produced seven calves. Four of these calves are daughters that have been retained in the herd forming the "Donna" line of breeding. In 2018, one of her bull calves sold for $7,750.00 in the WCA Bull Test and Sale.
H&S Dura Chick
The second Dam of Distinction is H&S Dura Chick who was born in 2013. She has produced six calves. Two of her daughters have been retained in the breeding herd forming the "Chick" line of breeding. Her three bull calves have sold to local buyers averaging $3,000.00. It is notable that both of these cows are daughters out of a bull called NJW 98S Durango 44U. Durango is from the nationally recognized herd of Ned and Jan Ward in Sheridan, Wyoming.
We use artificial insemination extensively to provide the very best genetics. Our goal is to produce high-quality animals that give us a good economic return and have an equally high value and economic return for our customers.
