Since our inception we have used Line One herd sires from other top Line One breeders including
We have also never been afraid to use our own home raised sires. We are firm believers in the adage: “If we can't produce one good enough for us, why should you trust us to produce one good enough for you to use?”
L1 Domino 16020 Reg # 43772871 (right in photo)
Is a bull we purchased off the research station in Miles City, Montana based on the power of the cows in the top and bottom half of his pedigree. 16020 is a dark red bull with fantastic scrotal development. He has good muscling that carries well down the lower quarter. He is an up-headed bull that carries himself in the pasture the way that a genuine herd sire should. We are happy to have him and are excited to get our first set of calves in early 2019. (Co-owned with George Wooley, Stephenville, Texas).
L1 Domino 16020 Reg # 43772871 Is a bull we purchased off the research station in Miles City, MT
L1 Domino 15245 Reg # 43656418
Was another bull purchased directly from Miles City. His pedigree is filled with a veritable "who's who" of Station bred cattle. His cow line is filled with the royal matrons of Miles City. 93466 and 96911 both produced herd bulls for the famed Carlson Hereford herd. 99374 and 06486 both produced herd bulls used by Holden Herefords and both ended up in Holden's donor pen. 10549 produced a herd sire used at the Station as well. Other notable cows on the bottom side include 99455 and 97325. On the top side there is 96893, 00532 and 02439. Just an incredible set of cows. Physically the 15245 bull has as much skeletal width as any Hereford bull that I have seen. He also exhibits extreme length of body. A physical brute of a bull. 15245 also had very nice weaning, yearling, and carcass scan ratios. Owned with George Wooley, Stephenville, Texas.
L1 Domino 14038 Reg # 43496172
L1 Domino 14038 is our senior herd sire here at Chitwood Herefords. He is another bull right off the research station. He has a very unique pedigree in that his sire was born in 1953. We believe that many contemporary Herefords and cattle in general, have lost a lot of the old time “doing ability”. They lack the stoutness, dimension and fleshing ability of the cattle of prior generations. 14038 is a moderate framed, thick bull that stands on a wide base. He is as structurally sound as any bull that we have seen anywhere. He has exceeded our highest expectations as a sire. He is siring beautiful, moderate daughters and his sons have been very popular with our customers. His first daughters will calve in early 2019. We have used him for 3 seasons and anticipate using him again next Spring.
GC Prairie Domino 709 Reg # 43820128
709 is a home bred and raised bull that we retained out of our 2017 calf crop to eventually replace his sire 14038 in our program. He is a very thick bull from end to end and top to bottom. He has a very strong loin and to quote an old time breeder, “he has meat on top, where it ought to be”. He is moderate framed and almost perfectly proportioned. His first calves arrived in early 2019. Pictured at two years of age in the breeding pasture.
A little history. You might just say ‘he started it all’. Only sired 2 calf crops but every L1 Hereford will trace on the top line to him. Prince Domino Mischief at 4 years of age just days before he dies of an infection on Christmas Day 1924.
