King is the first bull calf sired by the highly sought after WL Genesis of Windland Flats Farms. Genesis is a Striking Silver Bull whose semen straws sold for $550 a piece and a young cow bred to Genesis sold for $25,000 in the March 2021 North Central Highland Regional Association auction.  King’s Dam is WL Georgia, Georgia is the daughter of Trafalgar Victor, who was a Grand Champion at the Denver stock show, and sired by the great Sunset Limited Edition. Georgia’s Dam, Prairie Grass Hills Sunsong is an impact dam sired by the past Canadian National Champion bull Du Boise Lecoq.  Georgia has passed on to King a very correct and proportional frame to go with his strong hooves and legs. King is the first bull brought into HRE as a prospect bull and future Herd Sire.  He is showing an excellent temperament and a very calm and docile demeanor. We have our first confirmed WL King calf on the way with Mellisa Dubh-Dundonald.  The expected due date is March 2nd.  King was just 13 months old at conception.  We are holding our other three cows until January for fall calves from King.

He exhibits the proud traits of the Scottish Highland Cattle Standard.  Magic is a calm bull with Correct and Excellent Level and Straight top line, strong Muscular neck, Low Wide horn set, Broad short head, Bushy Forelock down to his muzzle,  And a Thick Slightly Wavy coat. Magic was a planned breeding  for the purpose of spreading the incredible Maternal traits of his dams line and superior maternal traits of his sire throughout his progeny.  Magic's Dam's line have said to have tight udders, small teats, have 50-60 pound calves unaided, and their calves nurse unassisted almost immediately.

Lucy is dark red and full of energy and is growing at a nice rate, picture was taken Oct 6th and she has been in the weaning pen for 20 days.  We are keeping her as a replacement heifer and look forward to pairing her with WL King when she comes of age to breed.
