WHR Registered Black Brangus

WHR, managed by Don and Sue Williams, has a small herd of Registered Black Brangus Cattle. We plan to stay relatively small so that we can better manage the quality of Brangus that we raise. We usually have a Fall calving season and a Spring weaning, however, this year things have changed and we now have a Spring and Fall calving season. All animals are kept on a strict immunization and deworming program.

In 2007, we added AI to our breeding program in order to upgrade our herd. At that time , we had Mr Brinks Sundance 94S as our herd sire. We chose semen from Csonka of Brinks and Newt of Brinks. We kept 2 heifers out of Csonka of Brinks and have several calves out of them and Sundance.

We continued our goal for quality in the 2008 breeding season by going back to the old foundation bloodline of Geronimo of Brinks and using his son from the 789 cow family. The 2011 Birth Weight EPD of their bull McMullen's Geronimo Hotline Registered BRangus Bull McMullens Geronimo Hotlineor "PaPa" was Top 15%. PaPa is a maternal bull and has produced only 4 bull calves in all the years he has been used as a herd sire and he was 11 years old in October of 2010. Of those 4 bull calves, 2 were produced in the 2009 fall calving season at WHR. As a footnote, upon PaPa's return to EBR he proceeded to produce 2 more bull calves. I guess WHR changed his perception of things!

Mr Brinks Sundance Registered Brangus BullMr. Brinks Sundance's Birth Weight EPD is Top 5%. The weaning weights for his calves is 625-800 lbs. These Sundance calves are on their feet quickly. However, the most important trait that he passes on to his offspring is his gentle disposition.

In 2012 we added WHR Geronimo's Transformer 661W (son of "PaPa" who is the son of the original Brinks Geronimo) to our breeding program and have had a 50/50 split of heifer and bull calves out of him. He is a very easy going bull and loves to be hand fed. He is pictures below on the right.Registered Brangus bull and grandson of Summit Sire Geronimo of Brinks

Registered Brangus bull WHR Sundances Ditka 30A2014 was a busy year and some changes have occurred at WHR. We sold Mr. Brinks Sundance to another ranch and have turned his son, WHR Sundance's Ditka 30A, in with his cows. In the picture on the left, he is 3 years old.

All is going well running 2 herds. It is busy, but it works.

2018 finds us trying to cut back to 1 herd, so we are working to do that. We have only 3 bulls at this time. As they are pictured oldest to youngest, they are 2 years, 15 months, and 12 months. Our calf crop last year was mostly heifers, this year it is mostly bulls. We will sell bulls as weanlings, yearlings, and young bulls ready to breed. If you are wanting to save money, you can buy a weanling and raise him yourself.
