We decided a few years back that it would be a great asset to the Red Angus breed if we could implement the great HF Tiger 5T. We flushed the mother to Fully Loaded 540R to Tiger and came up with Park Place 18Y. Park Place has actually exceeded our expectations. He is siring soggy, soft made offspring who have tremendous hair coats, growth, soundness, and are structurally correct. When you walk into the bull pen you can easily pick out the Park Place calves whether they be black or red. The birth weights are moderate… several of the Park Place calves are suitable for heifers. These genetics are new and fresh, and the cattle are right for the times. The way that Park Place has bred really excites us about the impact he will have on the future of the breed. Red Carrier.
One of the most unique bulls to come out of Ter-Ron in recent years. Real Deal has everything we are looking for in a herd sire. Depth of body, stoutness, very good footed, structurally correct and has a dark, rich hair coat. Sired by 2009 Canadian National Champion, Red Ter-Ron Reload 703T. His grand dam is the famous Brandy 11C cow, who we could write volumes about. Also, check out the sire to his mother – the DMM Flex bull, from Miller Wilson Angus. Outcross genetics here. Real Deal has had quite a show career in ’09 and has never been beaten as of yet.

Energizer has done everything we expected from him. He was our high selling bull in our 2009 spring bull sale at $26,000 for 1/2 interest to Heartbar Cattle. His moderate 86 lb birthweight is one of his greatest attributes, but when you analyze how long, wide topped, smooth shouldered and stout Energizer is, all we can say is it is amazing. All of this on top of tremendous feet and legs. Judge Colton Hamilton at Farm Fair 2009 described him as “the most Fault free bull”. Energizer has had quite a show career as well.

We could write pages about what this Red Angus bull has accomplished in his short life to date. We knew “Fully Loaded” was something special when he was just a calf. His first appearance was at the Red Round Up Show & Sale in 2005 where he was named the Bull Futurity Champion. Later that fall he was Reserve Champion at Farmfair International and Canadian Western Agribition as just a calf. The excitement he created was amazing leading up to our spring 2006 Get-A-Grip Bull Sale. When the smoke cleared “Fully Loaded” sold for $50,000, for a ½ interest and ½ possession to Six Mile Angus.
In 2007, we decided to sell ½ interest in “FullyLoaded” at Red Round Up. After the hammer fell we had new partners… many thanks to Vikse Family Farm, Top Grade Red Angus, and Dennis Bjelland, who paid $70,000 for their share of our Red Angus bull. Winning the Red Angus cattle show at Farm Fair International and Canadian Western Agribition in 2007 allowed “Fully Loaded” to qualify for the biggest all-breed Supreme event in Canada at Canadian Western Agribition. Above all of our wildest imaginations, he was named the Supreme Champion Bull over all breeds. The best part of all of this is not only is this Red Angus bull a champion in the show ring but, a true breeding champion.
The best part about “Fully Loaded” was soon to come; his first calf crop born in 2006. Calves sired by “Fully Loaded” are like no others we have had as a group. They are big-hipped, deep-bodied, long-spined, with loads of hair and lots of style. The first “FullyLoaded” calf we exhibited was Red Ter-Ron Shocker 186T. He was named 2007 Alberta Futurity Champion at the World Angus Forum show, and then named Champion Bull Calf in the Alberta Angus Association Gold Show held in Olds, Alberta. At Red Round Up 2007 another calf, Red Ter-Ron Reload 703T was named Futurity Champion and Club Red winner.
After being named Champion Red Angus Bull at Farm Fair International 2007, “FullyLoaded” repeated at Agribition and three calves sired by him were also Division winners. Red Ter-Ron Reload 703T was Junior Champion Red Angus Bull, Red Ter-Ron Shocker 186T was Intermediate Champion Bull and Red Ter-Ron Thunder 818T was Senior Champion Bull. Not bad for “Fully Loaded’s” first try!
