Clicking the tattoo number below brings up the EPDs!!

DCH C170
homozygous polled
heterozygous black
DCH C170
A standout in the summer pasture and an exceptional calf at weaning; she continues to impress us daily. A pleasure to work with, she is already halter broke and ready for the show ring or breeding pasture. Ideal phenotype, excellent disposition, dam has a perfect udder with plenty of milk, outstanding maternal pedigree, and …….the list of positive attributes continues long past this footnote. One of a kind, hard to part with, and you will run the wheels off your pickup looking for a better female.

DCH B118
homozygous polled
heterozygous black
DCH B118
A standout since she was a calf! Moderate birthweight and weaning weight ratio of 111. Performance plus with an excellent set of EPD’s. She is in the top 1% of WW, YW, TM, and CW!!! Ultrasound confirmed she is AI bred to DCH Hille Wow W287(1120705), a breed trait leader in CE, BW, and CEM. Due Feb 27th with bull calf

DCH B160
homozygous polled
homozygous black
DCH B160
It’s always hard to sell females from a strong maternal line. Her maternal granddam N109(Dam of Distinction every year since 2012) has just retired at over 12 years of age after sending multiple offspring to past ND state sales. Chris asked for the dam (X114) to be in a previous state sale, but I declined to save some of granddam genetics for myself. With this being X114’s 3rd heifer calf, I am ready to share the wealth. This is the second set of females to calve out of the Upgrade bull, and we were thrilled with the first set. This heifer is destined to be a breed influencing female! Ultrasound confirmed she is AI bred to DCH Hille Y109(1199670) with a heifer calf due Mar 2.

DCH B248
homozygous polled
heterozygous blk
DCH B248
B248 always catches your eye in the pasture. A stylish and well balanced female backed with a solid set of EPD’s. Pure Power, Kodiak, and Atlas put a solid foundation under her pedigree. I’m excited for her calf out of the Leverage bull that was only offered for semen sales at the 2015 National Gelbvieh Sale in Denver. Ultrasound confirmed she is AI bred to CCRO CAROLINA LEVERAGE 3214A(1281559) with a heifer calf due Mar 2.

DCH B317
heterozygous polled
DCH B317
A powerful female! She is a thick made heifer with extreme depth and muscling, but still keeps her feminine look with a smooth head, neck and shoulders. She is an absolute dream to look at! Ultrasound confirmed she is AI bred to DCH Hille Red Dirt Road B166(1295671),high selling red bull in our 2015 bull sale, with a heifer calf due Mar 9. As always Chimney Butte guarantees service sire and fetal sex on all Golden Rule offerings.
