Guardian first captivated the attention of Brangus Breeders when he sold through the Nov 2, 2009 GENETRUST @ Chimney Rock Cattle Co. sale for $30,000 to Ray Johnston, Johnston Farms, Letohatchee, AL. He later sold, through a private treaty transaction, for 1/2 interest and 1/2 possession to John Milam, Draggin’ M Ranch, El Dorado, AR. His first calf crop stamped him as one of the elite young sires of the breed and his popularity has continued to increase with each calf crop. He has worked exceptionally well on Brangus females; plus, equally as well on Angus females in the production of Ultrablack progeny. Guardian sires moderate birth weight cattle with exceptional growth as he ranks in the top 20% of the breed for both weaning weight and yearling weight. He also consistently improves carcass genetics in his progeny as he ranks in the top 15% of the breed for IMF and the top 35% of the breed for REA. Guardian’s progeny also possess excellent dispositions. His daughters are attractive fronted, straight top lined, feminine females who are making productive, functional cows with exceptional udder quality. His data ranks him in the top 10% of the breed forMilk and M&G; plus, he should add early puberty as he ranks in the top 1% of the breed for scrotal. His progeny have seen excellent demand as Ultrablack females sired by Guardian averaged $5,000 through the 2012 GENETRUST @ Chimney Rock sale and a total of 21 progeny through that same sale averaged $5,100. He has been one of the leading bulls for semen sales through GENETRUST for the past several years and is the number 2 ranked bull for GENETRUST through June of 2013. We feel that as more of his daughters come into production that his popularity will increase. Therefore, semen sales both domestically and internationally have an excellent opportunity to increase over the near future. Guardian has serviced cows naturally in the fall at Johnston Farms and spring and summer for Draggin’ M for the past two seasons. He is an excellent bull to handle and does a great job of covering cows in the breeding pastures. This sale presents itself as a suburb opportunity for a breeder to invest in a great proven breeding bull in the prime of his life with a great future in front of him. Progeny from proven AI sires consistently command an increased sale price of $500 to $800 above our average. Guardian’s natural service calves should add the same type of value to the new owner’s program. In November of 2013 Robert Yates Ranch spent $60,000 to purchase 2/3 semen interest and full possession plus 50 straws of domestic semen for in herd use and 100 straws of domestic and 100 straws of CSS approved semen. Draggin’ M and Johnston Farms each retain 1/6 interest.
