Herd Sire Prospects
Stacking genetics of the best producing animals in the industry is the most proven way to improve your herd in the shortest time frame. Our Embryo Transfer (ET) program is designed with stacked genetics as the primary driver in our decision process. By utilizing the most elite bulls and combining them with some of the best producing cows in the industry, Buffalo Gap Longhorns is producing heifer calves with powerfully stacked pedigrees that promise the results we are looking for; horn and color.
Our first ET efforts were in partnership with Cedar View Ranch utilizing CV Cowboy Casanova and Cowboy Tuff Chex crossed to FL Rio Maxine. Those embryos produced CV Call of Duty, BG Cricket, and CV Tuff's Ruff N Rowdy. Both Call of Duty and Rowdy are projecting into the high 80s TTT. BG Cricket was 76.5" at 3.5 years.
In 2016 we implanted 12 embryos crossing CV Call of Duty and Hubbell's 20 Gauge with RC Pacific Mermaid. We utilized reverse sorted heifer sexed semen in creating these embryos, and 8 new calves were born in July 2017. Hubbell's 20 Gauge is a huge black and white 84" bull who is throwing beautiful colored up calves, and he is producing horn in his offspring.
RC Pacific Mermaid
RC Pacific Mermaid is arguably one of the best producing cows in the industry. She is only 9` years old, and she is only the second cow in history to produce 3 over 90" TTT offspring. She has 4 other offspring in the 80's. She is a Tejas Star daughter, and he is truly one of the best horn producing bulls ever. Mermaid is a consistent producer of big horned cattle.
Tuff's Red Rose
Our next ET donor is a 71.3" TTT three year old. BG Tuff's Red Rose is out of Cowboy Tuff Chex x Max's Red Rose. Everybody knows Tuff Chex, the 100+" longest horned bull in history. Max's Red Rose is 89"TTT, and she has produced an over 90" daughter, Rex's Red Rose. Now throw in Cowboy Chex, Peacemaker 44, BL Poco Bueno, BL Rio Cachit, Maximius ST, and JR Grand Slam and you have a stacked pedigree before you even select the sire for her ET work. Tuff's Rose carries the stacked genetics we are focused upon and, she is scheduled to have embryos collected and placed late spring 2019.
We know where we are going over the next three years, and we invite you to join us as we produce great calves from great longhorns.
