Commanders Place is using two beautiful bulls right now - PCC Run Away Gray, a big horned bull with a beautiful silver color; and General Lee Texa, a good thick bodied black bull. Both of these bulls have progeny on the ground and we are looking forward to what the next calf crop will bring. Besides HCR and Rutledge's Dinger lineage daughters, we are excited about what daughters of our previous bulls, First Command and Hustler, might produce. Both of these bulls have won trophies in horn competitions and their progeny have performed well at halter.
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'!
