We believe that our females are the cornerstone of our program. Without a strong maternal foundation of mother cows, a cattle operation, whether it be purebred or commercial, will not thrive. We are very critical when culling for temperament, structure, and milk quality, based on the cows ability to bring in an exceptional calf from year to year. Our females are easy fleshing, feminine and consistent, and all are easy to work with. If they don't work, they don't stay. This has given us the ability to raise extremely consistent, strong quality calf crops every year, even when using a variety of different sires.
The Anne Cow Family
Red Riverdale Anne 571N has been our strongest foundation cow hands down. She is the cow that consistently does great, and so do all of her sons & daughters.
She was lost in the spring of 2014 but leaves behind the largest cow family here as well as many sons working in purebred herds.
Red JJL Fancy 72C
Fancy has been a knockout since the day she hit the ground. She was part of our Yards Pen at Canadian Western Agribition in 2015 where she garnered much attention. She easily earned her doner status, with her progeny hitting the top of the pen each year.
Owned by JJL Livestock & Wheeler Stock Farm
The Miss Deal
Powerful. The Miss Deal cows always bring in a calf big as or bigger than themselves every year and keep on calving first cycle every spring.
They are our no miss no matter what cows and the temperament of all their offspring is the best thing about them.
Red JJL Curve 39B
Red JJL Mclovin 68Z
Red Riverdale Princess 7P was an exceptional producer over the years. She has left her mark here with her exceptional offspring, and one of the strongest cows to walk JJL Livestock is her tremendous daughter JJL Princess 4W.
JJL Pricess 4W needs no introduction around here, she has consistently produced the right kind. Both sons and daughters out of this powerful doner have risen to the standards of many astute cattleman over the years.
Below are some of the progeny of JJL Princess 4W
Limited Semen and Embryos are available.
JJL Princess 4W & Red JJL Princess 51F
The MS Dynamics
Red Riverdale Ms. 3P was a favorite. Her daughters that remain carry her feminine structure and they can always raise a great calf.
A little cow with a lot of punch.
Brandy has raised mainly bull calves. Her calves always come in at the top of the pen & have sold to both purebred & commercial herds; her 4 daughters are also working in purebred herds.
Longevity and consistency in this cow family.
Red Riverdale Countess 485M & a sample of her bull calves over the years.
Originating from a black cow family we purchased from the Riverdale Dispersal. This group of cows is definitely unique. They are stylish, feminine and consistently produce.
Mati Cow Family
A favorite here, the dynamo cows are smaller framed but extremely correct. Many of our top sale bulls every year come from this line and many of the females have been selected and are working in purebred herds.
