DMR ADMIRAL 535K13 was our $75,000 selection at the CDP Brangus annual sale held in El Dorado, AR. It was easy to choose Admiral as the next bull to lead our program as we thought of him as the best Brangus bull to sale in 2023. A multi-generational Brangus herd sire that is backed by proven genetics, he’s the epitome of the Brangus breed. Few cows in the Brangus breed can rival the herd sire producing ability of MS DMR CORONADO 535A8. Bred to a wide variety of sires, she is responsible for making both UB’s as well as multi-generation Brangus sires that have positively impacted the Brangus world. Cash Flow, Kingdom and Windfall are her three oldest herd sires produced, and every single one of them has sired a highlight bull in this offering. Pretty impressive for any cow, but after these sons, she went on to produce the $110,000 Top Gun bull whose first calves are OUTSTANDING, as well as the $30,000 Relentless bull that is a flush mate brother to 535K13. The top side of his pedigree needs no introduction as Never Surrender has continued to sire front end progeny everywhere he’s been tested. From a phenotypic standpoint we really have to admire the overall thickness and power that DMR ADMIRAL 535K13 possesses but in a soft made, free moving package and from the ground up he’s sound structured and correct. Draggin’ M Ranch thought enough of this great young bull to bring him home as a yearling to clean up a set of their registered females and he did his job well and came back in great shape. Call us today to introduce Admiral in your herd.

Semen: $50/straw with a commercial discount available
Contact for Semen Purchases: Adam Hicks: 903-426-4556 or GenePlus: 877-436-3877

Suhn’s Pathway 331J57 was our $62,000 selection at the GenePlus November 2022 Bull Sale in Conord, AR. Dubbed as one of the greatest Brangus herd sires to ever walk through the storied ring at Chimney Rock, he is unbelievably constructed from every angle. He packs so many attributes the breed is seeking into one package unlike any Brangus sire that’s been seen in years. Massive in his body and dimension, he is huge in his rib cage with exceptional spring and shape, depth of heart and depth of flank. He’s bold in his top and in his pin width, carrying the expression all the way through his stifle. While he’s good in person, he is equally impressive on paper with his incredible data collection ranging from his top 10% on WW, YW & SC, top 15% for BW & REA, top 20% for CED and top 35% for IMF. He arrived at a 79# BW and went on to ratio 111 for WW, 107 YW, 105 REA, and 102 for IMF with a 40.4 SC in an extremely competitive Suhn herd. Calving ease numbers with breed leading growth and carcass; a maternal base that is proven in calve raising and herd sire department and a bull that actually has true red meat and substance from head to tail. Pathway is the bull we feel will continue to lead the Brangus breed in the right direction!
