Predator report from Wolfe.

Hi, Chad,

       I hope all is well with you and your family.  I simply wanted to let you know we now have a beautifully designed Predator heifer calf that was born this morning; her dam is a Witch Dr. x Draft Pick x Meyer 734.  It appears as though Predator passed his ability to sire bone, hair, thickness, and soundness, for this newborn heifer possesses those attributes.

I CANNOT wait for the other Predator sired calves to arrive.

Take care,


Thanks Pat and your confidence to use Predator on your great herd in Ohio.

Champion AOB Peru IN

Congrats to Maddie O'leary, WI and her half Char heifer at the Miami Co Classic. It's so exciting to see a young showperson take so much interest and pride in her heifer. The good times are just getting started.
This heifer was raised by Rick Frye and we helped Maddie find this heifer thru our calf locating service.

Predator and Immortal report all in one!

Chad ,
    Here's a couple of better pictures of that Predator X Immortal . His Mama in the one picture was my first Rising Stars purchase from you 3 years ago , boy was she ever cheap with calves like that out of her . This calf is going to be another stout steer prospect this fall . Just goes to prove you can't get much better when you have 100% Holtkamp genetics in a mating . Looking forward to flushing with that sexed heifer Predator in a couple of weeks , those ought to be some highly in demand females when they hit the ground !

Thanks Again

A view from around the program.

Here is a shot of the new pairs out on a strip of rye. Each fall we plant some rye so we can have a great place to put the cows on in early spring. This year with the unseasonable warm weather the rye has really taken off. Year in and year out this has worked well for us.
Watching new calves is a simply pleasure of life.
