TMCK AMERICAN MADE
We are very excited to be a semen interest owner in American Made. He is homozygous black, homozygous polled with excellent EPD’s. American Made is a possible curve bender with a moderate birth weight EPD of 1.7, and he is in the top 2 and 4 percent respectively of the breed for weaning and yearling weight. Wrap up great growth EPD’s with his high ranking maternal EPD’s, not to mention top 20% for marbling and a mainstream terminal index in the top 15% of the breed and you have a top notch purebred Limousin bull that turns every calf polled and black. American Made was the top selling bull from the Tubmill Creek Limousin pen during the National Western in January 2017.
This is one of our herd sires TMCK Cassius Clay and granddaughter Ella. She loves the cattle. Here at Brehm Farms we put a huge emphases on docility. Clay was purchased in January 2016 from Tubmill Creek’s Steel Foundation’s Online Bull Sale. We are looking forward to his impact on our calf crop in late 2017. He ranks in the top 1% for both weaning and yearling weight, but it is his personality that has really impressed us!
AN ICON AND HERO
The Junior National Limousin Show this year was in Lexington, KY at the Kentucky Horse Park. It is a beautiful place and well worth a stop if you ever make it to Lexington. While we were there, I took the opportunity to head over to Louisville and visit Churchill Downs which was a highlight of the week. The real excitement came with a visit to Claiborne Farms in Paris, KY. Claiborne Farms were gracious hosts even letting us take pictures with Orb the 2013 Kentucky Derby winner. For me, I got to see my hero Secretariat. It was only his grave, but definitely something that I have wanted to do since 1973 when he won the Triple Crown. There may never be another as good has Secretariat. I checked one item off of the bucket list!
SBLX Carbon Copy
SBLX Carbon Copy. This exciting new herd sire for Brehm Farms will be dual registered as a LimFlex and a Catagory III Red Angus. He is in the top 1% of the LimFlex breed for marbling and mainstream terminal index and top 15% for yearling weight. Carbon Copy will be the herd sire for our Red Angus and Red Limousin females.
Jefferies Ms Bonnie
JEFFERIES Ms Bonnie A400 was purchased from Jeffries Red Angus in Checotah, OK. Bonnie will be part of our red LimFlex program. She is a 2/13/13 daughter of Basin EXT 8926 and Jefferies W603. She has an amazing set of EPD’s being in the top 5 and 7 percent of the Red Angus breed for both weaning and yearling weight respectively. Bonnie is bred to Andras JLJ Smart Choice R263 an April 2014 calf.
RCK Stand Out X001
Stand Out is our Angus Herd Sire. We purchased him after we has seen numerous calves sired by him at the Greenbriar Dispersal Sale in November of 2012. He sports a low birth weight EPD of -.6, a weaning weight of 61, and a yearling weight EPD of 111 along with a 36 milking ability. He is seen here is his working cloths and still very handsome!!
Here is something we haven’t seen here in South Texas in quite some time. These bulls are grazing in grass that is actually covering their noses! And check out that back ground! We are very grateful for the rains we have had. The drought is not over, but things are certainly looking up. These bulls are for sale. Check the “Cattle for Sale” page for more pictures and prices.
Our newest herd sire Zorba was the Grand Champion AOB bull at the 2013 Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show in March.
Lovie RGVLS 2013
Lovie has proved herself again and again. We are very proud to have raised one that just keeps getting better. This time she was named Reserve Grand Champion AOB heifer at the Rio Grande Valley Livestock Show in Mercedes, TX in early March 2013.
