Gilliland Ranch News-- May 2016
Hello Fellow longhorn Breeders,
The McNight/ Filip/ Gilliland Partnership had to say goodbye to CV Cowboy Casanova- a bull who has served us well over the past several years by “Producing Premium Progeny” in our herds. His new home will be in Indiana and North Carolina with Bill Hudson and Tyson Leonard. We thank Bill and Tyson for their purchase and know that they will be pleased with his production. His legend will live on in my herd with the 25 females with Casanova DNA in their genome and we will continue to use his semen to artificially inseminate our best cows. Please contact Bill or Tyson for semen purchases in the future. As a replacement, the Gilliland Ranch recently purchased RC Tsunami 2 (Concealed Weapon X Pacific Mermaid) who reached 80" TTT @41 months. We look forward outcrossing him to our females with Casanova, Archer Texa and Monaco Chex in their pedigrees . In the meanwhile, we will continue to search for another herd sire prospect to continue to strategically stack horn producing pedigrees in our herd. We are committed to the scientific principle of increasing heritability percentage of horn production in our progeny by stacking genetic outcrosses to our core herd.
Thanks for visiting our website. Updates in the herd are made 2-3 times per week so keep coming back!
