Today starts a new chapter at JT Moreland Farms and we couldn’t be more excited about it. We took delivery of 43 young stabilizer cows from the Rieger family in Plevna, Montana. The Rieger’s have been with Leachman Cattle of Colorado raising maternal Stabilizers for 20 years and raising composite cattle for over 40 years. They’ve bred many great AI bulls including Leachman 18 Karat and Leachman Big Gene. These cows come from open country in Montana where cattle have to work hard. They will further solidify the quality of genetics we can supply to Leachman Cattle of Colorado and give us more outstanding genetics to build on.
A legend is gone...
We are sad to announce that A&T Renegade 124 was put down. He was almost 7 years old and the only thing wrong with him was he did too many things right. He improved literally every single trait in everything we bred him too. Whether it was Shorthorn or SimAngus cross genetics he took them and improved them. In one generation he turned around every trait in a cow from udder quality to mature weight to calf vigor to mothering ability. As the rest of the breed chased growth and ribeye Renegade created the optimal type of Shorthorn female. The female you would want to grow a herd around. The decision to put down this bull was tough but we have to move on. Thankfully we move on with a lot of influence from this great bull that are crossing extremely well with Stabilizer genetics.

Apostle as a yearling bull
A very successful day yesterday at JT Moreland Farms. Pregnancy checks came back with 93.5% confirmed pregnancies. 100% heifer pregnancy and those that were open were older cows and several we wanted to get rid of anyway. About 95% of those bred were confirmed bred either AI or the next cycle. So overall we are very happy with those results. Our Herd bulls are Leachman Apostle U021B, Leachman Excalibur X828D. AI sires are Leachman Accelerate, Leachman Courageous, Leachman Visionary, Leachman Judge, Leachman Escalade, and A&T Renegade. Lot's of AI calves coming but just as excited about our Apostle and Excalibur calves.
Leachman 18 Karat.
