Jay George

Sharing top selling bull honors was Lot 5, KC L1 Domino 08037, commanding a $6,250 bid from Lonnie Vandervorst of Akaska, SD. Well muscled, bold ribbed, rugged and complete, this high performing April 2008 son of C1 Domino 648S was out of a top CL1 Domino 0123K "Dam of Distinction" cow. His record: 205 wt. - 736; 365 wt. 1,286; and EPDs of BW 2.2, WW 52, YW 87, Milk 21 and M&G 47.

Carmichael Herefords built their reputation as a seedstock breeder with a program driven by the basic economics of the commercial cow business. That means balanced performance, efficiency and problem free stock that produce and perform in western South Dakota ranch country. Founded by the late James Carmichael, one of the region’s most respected Hereford cowmen, the herd was built upon the principles of performance testing, a keen stockman’s eye and breeding Herefords that were true range cattle.

Keith and Bryan Carmichael and mother Dorothy presented the family’s 40th annual sale at the ranch near Meadow, SD. This year marked the 100th anniversary for Dorothy Hartman Carmichael’s family to operate at this ranch location with Keith and Carol Carmichael now headquartered there. A capacity crowd of ranchers dominated by some of western South Dakota’s most astute cowmen were at ringside to appraise a strong offering of well developed, high quality, uniform two-year-old and yearling bulls.

The Carmichael name stands for mother cow efficiency, function and production, and is backed by time-tested, total trait Hereford Line One genetics. Winter grazing, range calving, early breeding, sound udders and weaning a big calf with no creep are the criteria upon which the program operates.

This 2009 sale was one of their strongest yet as cattlemen continue to discover the true performance and maternal value of Carmichael stock and the heterosis and breeding power that comes from Hereford bulls. It was a good day for a family long committed to breeding the best in high performance, range country Herefords.
