Snowshoe Cattle Co is located along the Yellowstone River at Pompeys Pillar, MT.  The river bottom provides excellent protection during the winter and through calving.  After they have been AI’d, the cowherd is moved to summer pasture in the Wolf Mountains on rugged pastures.  They are expected to forage in tough country and wean off calves that can do the same.  Heavy pressure is placed upon correct feet and legs, udder structure and quality, volume and mothering ability.  The cows must have the phenotype to carry them into the rocky hills to reach the short hard grass and still make the long trek back to water. They must also be genetically pre-disposed to good health, as this country does not lend itself to coddling.

Snowshoe 719T Katie Y27

 


Son: Snowshoe X51 Bannack Y27 19C

Katie Y27 has been noteworthy from the moment she hit the ground.  She has exhibited added volume and length of hip in an easy fleshing, great uddered package.  She is sound footed with both precision and fluid movement in her step.  It is hard to say which strikes you first upon viewing her: her wide table top or her expansive middle.  Both features only add to her total feminine maternal package.  She has been earning honors both in the show ring and in the pasture.  As a calf she earned Champion Female at the Northern International Livestock Expo (NILE) and was awarded the opportunity to appear in the Supreme Beef Challenge at Agribition.  She and her dam were also named Champion Cow Calf multiple times including the NILE.  Her trips out as a bred heifer were equally rewarding.  Now, as a mature cow she has continued to “Wow” us with her ability to produce outstanding calves.  She demonstrated this best at the JNHE this summer earning Reserve Champion Standard Cow Calf with her X51 sired bull calf at side.  She passes along her shape and design to her calves in a powerful and eye appealing package.   She will have a tremendous impact on the future of our program.

T44 is out of another donor female in our program, DRF Selena S133 K6 (photo below). She offers lots of volume in a sound dynamic package. She passes these qualities to her offspring with predictable consistency. Her first calf, a Spud daughter, was named Supreme Champion Female at the 2010 Montana State Fair. She and her maternal sister have both been retained in our herd. The most recent calf produced by T44 was a key member of our 2013 Denver pen. Snowshoe 31U Rogue T44 36Z has displayed outstanding performance both in growth and carcass. He has a weaning ratio of 111, a yearling ratio of 110, our largest Rib Eye Area scan with 15.88 in, and an IMF ratio of 115.

Grand daughter, W11
Supreme Champion Female - Montana State Fair
Her sire, Headline S133 is a maternal legacy in the breed. K6 has proven that she can produce both outstanding sons & daughters, one of which, T44 is pictured above. She is broody and massive, yet feminine. She offers a solid sound foot that can cover the rugged summer pastures, and produce the kind of sons that will work in tough country. Her granddaughter by Spud is the 2010 Supreme Champion Female at the Montana State Fair.

Snowshoe 31U Tuff 31S 42Z
This young sire has drawn our attention every time we viewed him in the pasture with his dam. As our Lead-off bull in our Denver Pen, he carries extra thickness down his top and through his lower quarter. He offers genuine red meat, carrying only a 0.17 inch backfat with a 14.28 Rib Eye Area. He is correct and wide based, smooth shouldered and smooth polled. He has given us the performance we sought in a very tough year of drought and heat. His dam, 31S has earned Dam of Distinction honors for good reason. She has a weaning ratio of 114.6 on 5 calves and a yearling ratio of 108.5. At seven years of age she is in the prime of her production and her udder is the same: level, square made, well placed and ideal sized teats. She produced the dam of the Champion Carcass Steer/Class Winner for Lauren Prill at the 2012 JNHE. Her offspring have consistently been at the top of their calf crop. With all of this in mind, TUFF will be playing a very instrumental role in the future of our program. His first calves are very exciting!
His first calves have been exciting.

Lego is now walking the pastures at Snowshoe Cattle Co.  He is an exciting addition to our program.  As a trait leader for low birth weight and calving ease, plus REA, Lego is complementing our program well.  He is Homozygous Polled.  We will be calving our first daughters by him this spring.

This Rib Eye son is quickly becoming an integral part of our program. We used him on our heifers and calved out his first offspring this year. The calves came easy yet thrifty and are growing out nicely. We felt so strongly about him that we have used him more extensively this year. His dam is out of one of our foundation cow families and is very correct with plenty of volume and a faultless udder. 6Z was purchased in our 2013 Bull Selection Day by Bill Kuehn and now resides in Nebraska. Two 6Z sons topped our 2015 Bull Selection Day.  We are eagerly awaiting his first daughters in production Spring 2016.

We were fortunate to be able to purchase Refresh, a flush mate to Redeem, the high selling bull in Jensens 2011 sale, when ½ interest sold for $50,000. Full sisters also topped the Jensen sale that day. Refresh offers a little more overall size, but to date, the moderate birth weights and calving ease. Our first calves are on the ground here and are vigorous at birth and are performing equal to the Redeem calves.

We are excited to have Bill & Bobbi Dunn, Cochranton, PA as partners.
