Sire Dam's Sire Date of Birth Sex Breed
MAB Ali x Jazz 4/6/17 Heifer Low Chi or MaineTainer

 

This heifer is a full sister to the Heifer that won Supreme Champion: Junior show, 4-H show and Open show at ACF last year.  She also was FFA Champion Heifer and won Illinois State Fair Senior Heifer.  This is a show heifer!  She has hair, bone, high volume, deep flanked yet all in a feminine package and walks like a runway model.   She is another embryo calf from our best donor cow and full sibling to two steers in the sale.  We would love to retain her and breed her ourselves.

All That Matters BPF Boomer 3/3/17 Steer Maine

 

This High Maine steer is sired by All That Matters.   All That Matters is the kind of bull that we haven't seen in the Maine industry for a long time and he was a crowd favorite at Denver in 2015.  This steer has the most center body of any steer we have ever sold. He is simply massive all the way through. He has tons of bone, look, and style with the hair to make him killer.  Land Of Lincoln Eligible

I Da Man Ali x Jazz 4/5/17 Steer Crossbred

 

We have three steers in the sale lot #3, #5 and 9 and all are Embryo calves, this one if from "different sire".  Sired by I Da Man, this calf is extreme. Head up,  smooth fronted, beautiful lines, great top and walks like a cat.  He is a bit greener than the other two.   This steer has that cocky show ring look and the way his head and neck fit into that smooth shoulder is awesome.   This should be a fun steer for some lucky show person.

BPF Mercedes Benz The Maine Man  3/14/17 Heifer Maine

 

I love this High Maine heifer. She will be a Super Show Heifer. She is a boss lady and she runs the show in the sale pen.  We showed her this summer at two county fairs and the Illinois State Fair and she held her own very well against the older January heifers. She has the rib shape, width, dimension, and soundness to produce females that make money. Her mother is one of the best show heifers we ever raised -  HF Aurora.  See her in the supporting picture.  Land Of Lincoln Eligible

Rodger That's dam, Hotty, is a full sister to the many time champion female Dotty, and is also a full sister to the popular Maine Man. It will be tough to complete with this guy come wintertime.

Angus (Upshot) PB Shorthorn  2/28/27 Heifer Shorthorn Plus

 

Now comes the calf that most people said should have been our #1 in the sale.  This is a shorthorn plus heifer sired by Upshot (Angus) and the Dam is What's up.  You have to appreciate the swope of her belly, her smooth front end, beautiful profile and big hip.  That little touch of white on her belly and end of her tail just set her off.   This heifer will be a judges favorite for sure.

HF Thor Shorthorn BPF High Definition Maine 3/24/17 Steer Shorthorn Plus or MaineTainer

 

Believe it or not, under all this thick black hair this steer is actually a blue roan. He is a very laid-back keep-it-cool kind of steer. He doesn't get too excited about anything and would be great for a young showman or show lady. He is extremely clean and extended on his front end, super deep-bodied, with a thick square hip.  He is sired by the 2013 Reserve Grand Campion Shorthorn Bull at the Illinois State Fair HF Thor. HF Thor is in the supporting pictures for this Lot. The dam of this guy has done nothing but produce high-quality calves for this sale for the last 4 years.  Ever since we purchased her from Bushy Park Farms, she has raised a calf every year for our sale and I think this is her best one yet. She is also pictured in the supporting pics.  This steer could be registered as a Shorthorn Plus or a MaineTainer.

MAB Ali x Jazz 4/3/171 Steer Crossbred

 

Last but not least of our three embryo steers.  This MAB steer has the most sheer muscle and top in him.  He stands on a big foot and leg.  He is going to be the easy doing, heaviest muscled of the 3 brothers.  You really cannot go wrong with any of these embryo calves, this cow has never disappointed with her offspring.

"This steer is one of the prettiest colored calves we've pictured for a long time" said Gary, who was our picture lady's helper in the pic pen, and boy is he right.  This guy has just the right combination of red and white hair and tons of it. He would also be perfect for a young showman or show lady because he will come right up to you in the sale pen and lick you to death. He has a top so wide you could land a plane on it and has tons of rib shape and dimension with a thick square hip. He is sired by the 2013 Reserve Grand Campion Shorthorn Bull at the Illinois State Fair HF Thor.

Brilliance Monopoly 3/21/17 Heifer Chi Angus

 

This heifer is definitely one of the most feminine in the offering but bit greener.  We hadn't pulled her into the line up until later and her dam is a first calf heifer.  She is really coming on.  Very feminine, that soft thick hair, long fronted smooth walking heifer.   When you picture a Chi-Angus heifer, she is the perfect image.  The combination of Monopoly and Brilliance is sure a hit, as seen in this heifer.

Fu Man Chu Chi/Angus 4/1/17 Heifer Chi/Angus

 

Sometimes, we clubby guys forget to check for good feet and legs as long as they have tons of bone and a huge rear end. Well, these last couple years we have really strived to find clubby bulls that are sound on their feet and legs and still have enough power to compete with the big boys. These next 3 Huber Lots 12, 14, and 16 are all sired by Fu Man Chu and soundness is his specialty. Fu Man Chu's feet and legs are square and it shows through in all 3 of these lots. The first Fu heifer is older and more mature in her make up. She is level from hooks to pins and has plenty of length from head to tail. Her Chi/Angus mother gives her that super clean and smooth front end. Her mother has been in our herd for 10 years and has raised a calf every single year. We have kept the last 4 heifer calves out of her so now we feel that it’s time to offer one to you.

No Worries Carpe Diem x Ali 4/19/17 Heifer Low % Chi

 

Very gentle, sweet disposition heifer good for a young showman.  No lie, this heifer was halter broke, washed and clipped in 2 days. Believe us, it is not usually that easy.   She has hair like a Yak and has been trimmed 3 times already.  Her hair grows back very fast.  She is deep sided, big hipped and has good bone and yet she is still feminine.  She is a sweetie.

Fu Man Chu Mercedes Benz MaineTainer 3/2/17 Steer MaineTainer

 

Lot 14 is the only Fu Man Chu steer we had this year, but I wish I had 10 more just like him. This guy is really freaky fronted. He is so clean under his neck and it blends perfectly back into his smooth shoulder. And again, Fu Man Chu gives this steer those perfect feet and legs straight forward. He walks right into it and sets up perfect every time and would be good for a young showman or show lady. His mother is so gentle we can walk right up her in the pasture and she lets you scratch her back. I think this steer could be the sleeper in my set of calves this year.

Fear This Driver x WMW/Total Play 4/3/17 Heifer MaineTainer

 

You want a great cow?  This is the heifer that is going to be a totally awesome cow.  Her mother was sired by Driver (Simmi).  When Hartman cattle switched to Simmental, they started with a base heard of 100 half-blood Driver daughters.  They consider Driver daughters to be fault-free, sound, neat fronted, moderate framed, high volume, with perfect udders and small teats.  The Dam of this heifer is our best Who Made Who cow.  The Heifer's sire is Fear This, who is old school Maine and a never miss for productive cattle.   Buy with confidence on this deep hipped, sleek fronted heifer, her pedigree alone is well worth the investment.

Fu Man Chu Angus 5/3/17 Heifer Chi/Angus

 

This is the younger Fu heifer in the sale offering. She is a May, but she can still hold her own in the sale pen. She is super thick ended, lots of width and dimension, and still very clean and extended in her front end. She is out of a massive brute Angus cow that can flat out produce. We kept her full sister Fu 47 as a replacement heifer last year, and Fu 47 looks amazing in the first calf heifer pen. Feel free to stop by and see what the future holds for this lot 16 heifer.

We are selling lot 18 as a market heifer. We believe she would show very well in this division. She is only a May, but she has all the pieces to be a good one. Her Grandmother is the best Monopoly cow on our farm and that is where she gets her awesome hair and killer look. Her mother is a maternal sibling to our best show heifer HF Aurora. She has a good square hip with plenty of rib shape. After you show this one as a market heifer, don't be afraid to take her back home and put her to work producing show steers for you.

BPF Hard Drive Son BPF Cotton County Chi 5/18/17 Heifer MaineTainer

 

Double shot of Bushy Park Farms genetics here people. We have always known this little May heifer was going to be something special since the day she was born. She always catches your eye in the pasture because she has such perfect lines when viewed on the profile. She is sired by a Bushy Park Maine Anjou bull we purchased in 2015. This is his first true calf crop and boy are they good calves. He makes them thick and stylish enough to complete while still having the maternal side that all cows need to produce and make it in the long run. We call her mother the 29 cow and she had a super good Benz heifer last year that we kept for the replacement pen, so we are offering this little heifer for the sale.

This Texas Tornado Heifer has been a stand out heifer since the day she was born. She has a really unique color pattern that’s almost tiger or leopard like. No matter where you were in the pasture you could always find this girl and it will be the same in the show ring. This heifer is super deep and soggy with a bold rib cage and she does not disappoint when you get behind her. She is very sound and will just glide around the show ring the summer. This heifer is the full sib to our high selling steer in the 2015 MWI Sale.

This steer is one of two Fu Man Chu steers we have to offer in our lineup. I really like these Fu Man Chu steers I wish I had a whole trailer load to offer our customers. As good as this picture is it really just doesn’t do him justice.  Check out his video you will see what I me mean. When we get this steer set up he looks like a darn good show steer. He is so calm and gentle another good steer for and young showman.  He is super clean fronted with that perfect head shape. He is super deep bodied and has tons of bone. The guy had so much hair in June we had to bring him in and slick shear him off because he was so hot in the pasture. You can tell he has a ton of hair from his video and he put all that hair on in just 4 hot summer months. I think it's safe to say you won't have any trouble keeping hair on this one at the summer shows.

Freaky Fronted!!! This heifer has a beautiful front end on her.  Her smooth shoulder ties in perfectly with her classy feminine look. She is super thick and big boned which I think comes from her daddy Searsboro. For those of you that do not recognize the bull Searsboro, he is named after the town in Iowa where supposedly all the good clubby bulls come from. Searsboro is a darn good Lautner Bull that doesnt get used enough. He is very sound and one of the best older bulls at the stud farm. This heifer's mother is darn good too. This cow family has great longevity in their bloodlines, lot 3 and lot 9, both have the same grandmother and they will be in your herd for a long time.

This is our second Fu Man Chu steer we are offering in this sale and honestly he is so good I could not decide which steer to sell first Lot 5 or this guy. This steer is made just a little bit differently than the Lot 5 steer this guy is still really clean and smooth in his front end but he packs in more rib shape and  if you can believe it is deeper through his center cavity and he still packs great muscle pattern. This guy is really athletic and can move around any showring you put him in.

Flashy!!! This heifer is super cool when you get her set up. Her color pattern alone will catch the judge's eye. But when she starts to walk around the ring that’s when the judges will fall in love with her. She has amazing athleticism and is so smooth and light on her feet. Her ultra-cool feminine look is to die for and she's got tons of body shape too. Lot 13 has cow power written all over her. After you get done showing her take her home and let her go to work making you money. She will produce some great show heifers. Her mother is 12 years old and I hope she will be on our farm forever.

Lot 15 is sired by our new Maine herd bull BPF Hard Drive son. We only used him to clean up a few cows so we only had 2 calves out of him this year. The first was a purebred maine bull calf that the Waner Farm claimed the day after he was born and yes he is that good. The second calf is this Lot 15 Mainetainer heifer. Dad and I went back and forth all year long on whether or not we should sell this heifer because she is going to be such a great cow. But we decided to offer her in our sale. Yes she is going to make a darn good cow she is super soft made for a Maine heifer and her feet and legs are perfect and in line. I am really excited to see what kind of maine calves this one can produce.

Sex: HEIFER
Consignor: HUBER FARMS

 

Lot 17 is another heifer I think we should be keeping for the replacement heifer pen. Steer Maker is what comes to mind when I look at this heifer and here is why. She is out of our trusty HF44 cow who calved our high selling steer in the 2013 MWI Sale and before that she had a killer heifer that sold to Matt Dearwester. Matt got along so well with that heifer he actually named her Steer Maker and he decided to flush her. He will have ET calves calving this spring. I am super excited to see what he gets.  This Lot 17 really reminds me a lot of that Steer Maker cow of Matt's she is moderate in her frame has a huge butt and strructurally is very sound. If you are looking for one that will be able to produce some great show steers this is the heifer for you.
