We all know that there is both a real and perceived calving ease problem within our great breed of cattle. To that end, we have been trying to create cattle with more manageable birth weights and larger pelvic areas without sacrificing any of the breeds gains in muscularity and carcass efficiency. Greater documentation within our herd and genetic base has begun to develop more consistency and basic knowledge of how our cattle are going to respond in their environment. However, we still needed that one extra step to not only expand on these traits, but to present name recognition and validity to the unmatched importance of calving ease and calf mortality. What better way to achieve all these goals in one package than to purchase Prestige 0665 from Loving Farms. The Loving name ensures generations of cattle bred for real world practicality and function while the Proud Jazz lineage is industry accepted as a high quality Shorthorn calving ease option.





Waukaru Benchmark 4014
Registration Number: 4209145
Sire: Waukaru Goldmine 2109
Dam: Waukaru First Kiss 2094

BW: 71 lbs. • WW: 589 lbs. • YW: 1087 lbs. • SC: 37cm
Frame Score: 5

Rib Fat: .11 REA: 11.00 IMF: 5.63

Benchmark is the rarest combination of genetic predictors in the breed today. He combines exceptional calving ease, fantastic growth, and breed leading maternal value. By ranking in the top 10% of the breed for CE, WW, YW, MM, and MCE, as well as the top 15% for BW, Benchmark's EPD's place him at the top of the ASA's database for this exclusive combination. Benchmark is not a "show" bull but we feel there is significant value in his ability to provide another calving ease option without Jazz influence while generating herd and breed leading females with the genetic and physical traits necessary to increase efficiency and profits. His smooth build, near ideal skeleton, and impressive IMF measurement simply add to his utility.




Hill Haven Cognac 39B
Registration Number: 4212254
Sire: SBF Hennessy 32Z
Dam: Hill Haven Vera 18W

BW: 100 lbs. • WW: 761 lbs.
Frame Score: 6.5
Canadian Percentage: 95.4
Rib Fat: .28 REA: 13.2 IMF: 5.43

Top 10% of the ASA: WW, YW, MW, CWT, $F

Cognac was purchased from Hill Haven Shorthorns in order to further our ambition to create better beef animals. We were attracted to his fantastic body mass on a proportional and sound frame. His rib shape and depth, square and wide hip, and stout features are attributes we feel are needed to take the next step in continuing to create low maintenance cattle with great maternal performance and improved carcass traits. His outcross genetics, yet similar phenotype to much of our herd, should aid in the production of more efficient progeny performance. As an added bonus, Cognac is an exceptionally eye appealing bull with a smooth shoulder, trim neck, masculine, cocky head, and soft, manageable hair. Due to all these outstanding characteristics, Cognac has been widely accepted in the show ring as well winning Spring Bull Calf Championships at the 2014 Royal Agricultural Fair in Toronto and at the 2014 U.S. National show at the NAILE.



DPH Contender SP2104
Registration Number: 4081869
Sire: Studer's Pretender 96th
Dam: SAH Roseanna 300HR

BW: 86 lbs. • WW: 723 lbs. • YW: 1274 lbs. • SC: 37cm
Frame Score: 6.4
Canadian Percentage: 87.5

Top 10% of the ASA: WW, YW, CWT, FAT, $F, $BMI

Contender has been the centerpiece of our breeding program over the last few years and will remain so due to his daughters’ ability to maintain flesh, milk, and produce marketable offspring. He is also the first sire used here that we actually hope for sons. His bull calves are widely accepted for their masculinity, rugged construction, and profitable carcass traits. We will continue to feature Contender through AI and ET work and utilize his sons to further propagate his genetic ability. His genetics will only be available through his offspring. Semen is not for sale due to his death.



MJH Frazier C806
Registration Number: 4107796
Sire: DPH Contender SP2104
Dam: HAHN Wynonna NL504

One of the first sons of Contender, Frazier continues  to make a lasting impact on our herd's ability to produce moderate, easy fleshing cattle with improved carcass quality.  Although deceased, his service continues through AI and through sons in order to build on increased IMF, earlier maturity patterns, and lower input costs.  Average birth weight on 59 calves has been 81.2 lbs. with an average calving ease score of 1.15.   16 of his daughters scanned 5.03% IMF at 410 days.
