Derrick Passey from Alberta, Canada frequently shares his photos with us all. Here is one of today’s contributions a line up of some of his favorites. Derrick says that from ” left to right is Coon Creek Rae, Queen Jera, then our herd bull Diego.”
The time has come to change herd sires, so now that I’ve secured his replacement, I’m putting BWS Captain Butler up for sale. He just turned 8 years old, DOB 4-18-05. He’s a Foundation Pure proven herd sire having multiple calves on the ground in the US, most of which I have pictures if requested. He’s a Sea Wolf son and out of O’Hara, which links him to Catskill Thunder and a double dose of Rambo, all great producers in the breed. Sea Wolf really gave Butler a lot of muscle that he’ll pass to his offspring, especially in the back end. I attached 3 pictures of him by himself, as well as his full pedigree I mapped out, and a comparison picture of him with a new born bull calf and my 3 year old (at that time) cow. The pictures don’t do him justice, he really is a large meaty bull, especially for a Watusi. His horns measured 69″ tip to tip & 23″ base circumference at the hair line on 7/30/12, and that was the only time he was measured at RRH. You can check my website for measurements on other cattle I own if you’d like to compare. Butler will add both body and horn to your herd, and he’s very good at his job as a bull. He’s located in East Texas and can be delivered anywhere for some fuel cost. I’m asking $2,500 for him, he comes with registration papers, and I can supply any info on Butler or his offspring via email, phone, or mail. Butler is a lot of bang for your buck, and I’m sure others will agree. Feel free to contact me anytime, and also feel free to spread the word around, I’d sure appreciate it!
