Predator keeps on proving himself.

Here are some pics of our First born baby! This is a Preditor X Dr Who. First calf heifer. Delivery was awesome, She did it all on her own! Calf weighed 72 lbs. Very healthy calf was standing up in about 4 minutes after delivery. Calf should be 50% Maine. Very happy with the Preditor bull! Calf is just 2 days old in pics!  Thank you

Predator picture at Denver never released before.

This is a picture of Predator we took in the Yards at Denver when we displayed him. We never used it for an Ad. It does a good job of showing his softness and smooth shoulder.

Trip to Nichols Cryo Genetics.

I picked up Predator yesterday from the bull stud. Predator has absolutely the best attitude. He was excited to get on the trailer because he knew it's time for the real thing. He jumped on the trailer faster than Winston our dog jumps in the truck and looked back like lets go.
This is Fully Automatic hanging out at Nichols. I walked out there and he struck a poise and I took the picture. He looks really really good. I guess that's why he is selling out.

Thanks to all the bidders and buyers of the online sale.

Thanks to everybody who participated in our online sale. Lots are going to 10 different states. Nice job by cwcattlesales.
