Commanders Place senior herd sire, Hustler, is a beautiful golden LC Bladen son out of a Roundup daughter. With grandsires of Hunts Demands Respect and Roundup, and carrying the elusive grulla gene, Hustler is bringing some outstanding genetics into our herd. Additionally, he has brought home six bronzes from Longhorn World Championships and Horn Showcases with a current total horn measurement of over 107".
We strive not only for LONG HORNS but overall substance and quality as well. Horns are an important feature in our program, but unlike the early days of the breed on the wild Texas plains, they won't ensure the survival of the species. Reproductive soundness, milking ability, calving ease and longevity are also key traits that make Longhorns unique among other breeds. They are part of the total package animal that our herd sires have begun to produce. Two 2012 calves made a big impression at the 2013 National Western Stock Show. A son of Hustler 969, Nacho Cowboy CPL, won Grand Champion Haltered Bull. A daughter of First Command CPL, Aloha Cowgirl CPL, won Reserve Grand Champion Haltered Female. We couldn't be more pleased with these 'products'!
Some of the cows and heifers currently carrying calves by Hustler are sired by such greats as Roundup, Peacemaker 44 (confirmed by ultrasound to be a heifer), Hunts Command Respect, M Arrow Wow, Wiregrass Smokin 44, Star Regard, Rowdy's Temptation, ZD Kelly and J.R. Quixote. Additionally, we have unexposed heifers sired by First Command, Hustler, Top Caliber, Fiesty Lee Jr., and Respect Me.
In addition to Hustler 969, the sires of our current calf crop and the new arrivals expected next season, include great bulls such as Saddlehorn, Zeus, Cowboy Cassanova, Jamakizm, and Drag Iron.
