First Generation Bull:
WNH DMPH Optimum 9531
9531 is the only animal in this pedigree that was not the top indexing calf in his or her respective calf crops. 9531 was second highest indexing bull in his contemporary group. 9531 is a moderate framed bull with a nearly perfect phenotype and nearly perfect markings, with pigmented eyes and scrotum. He was Reserve Intermediate Champion at the 74th National and has been siring some of the most attractive calves produced anywhere. He has a great topline with a lot of thickness and muscle. He is co-owned with Dennis and Marie Bohanon.
9531 sired a class winner at the 1998 Junior
for Dennis Bohanon. With more use, we expect his birth weight EPD
to come down some, which is his only weakness. Our two linebred
- 9833 and 9834 - both appear to have fallen on the lower end of his
weight curve, as they weighed 82 and 94 respectively.
First Generation Female:
WNH Ross Optima 9501 (the calf in this photo)
9501, like her dam before her, had the highest
weight for a 1995 heifer. She was second in class at Denver, and
her first calf at 6 months of age was in the top 5 at the Junior
9501 is a thick, large volume, high growth and very heavy milking
As a calf she was sold to Ross Walker of Tennessee. Ross agreed
allow us to flush her for the purpose of completing our breeding
We are grateful for his cooperation and generosity. 9501' s
second calf was a bull by Lonestar David 294 ET. 9501 was
purchased from Ross Walker by Caldwell Hereford Ranch.
