TDF Huck 1104
Huck was the reserve champion as a calf at the 2011 World Beef Expo. He was Reserve National Champion at the World Beef Expo in 2012 as a yearling behind our bull calf KT Mac 1203.

Huck is outcross genetics out of Debeavoir Huckleberry Finn from England. He is a growthy long bull. He weighed 1,500 pounds when I picked him up from breeding 16 heifers for Megan Maas this summer. He was in excellent condition for the show this fall considering he was working up till two days before the show.

Huck had a 95 lb birhtweight and weighed 1218 lbs at 11 months of age. Ken Maas said he was gentleman at their place also.

​Semen $30 per straw
​Mac is an easy calving sire with an average calve size of 72 lbs in 2012. He is the sire of National Grand Champion KT Mac 1203

Mac is a frame score 6 bull. Mac sires structurally correct calves that are easy fleshing and adds thickness. He tends to throw calves marked the same as the cow. Use him on those TH postive club calf heifers for smaller calves that are really flashy in the show ring. Most have come out at linebacks in black cattle. He is in limited supply and 2018 may be the last year semen is available.
