The Queen mother lode donor of all time. Her influence comes to us via her three most outstanding daughters. Kerstin and Krispy Kreme both by Hafke and also Gibbons Lilly by Romulus. No cow has had a greater impact on the breed and our herd as Lilli-Marlen.
We have 27 cows in our herd that are decendents of Lilli-Marlen
Lilly (Romulus X Great Guns Lilli-Marlen)
Lilly is one of the last living daughters of the immortal Lilli-Marlen.
Pictured as an open heifer when she commanded $45,000. We were extremely fortunate to aquire the top picks from her flush with the timeless Romulus. CFFS Romulus and Classy Lady have had a major impact in our herd. After seeing their contribution we have added the top two picks (females) from Kerstin’s flush with Westdrums Andrew who is known for producing great females.
Kerstin has an outstanding 2014 bull calf sired by Solway Adonis.
CFFS Classy Lady
Flushmate to CFFS Romulus. Sired by the timeless female sire: Romulus and out of Kirsten. Daughters in herd by Exodus, Razz Matazz, CFF Romulus and PRL Houston (3). Classy lady’s influence will be felt here for years to come.

May be the best cow that you've never heard of.
1st Calf Stargazer and her daughter Dorthy Jane wrote history in Dan Skeels donor pen.
2nd & 3rd Calves both sired by Universe sold to Arnold Bros and produced several high sellers including "High Five" . Pretty remarkable when you consider Arnold Bros. ran over 1700 cows.
4th Calf Universal Enhancer - Herdsire for Kulyk's great herd at North Battleford.
5th Calf The most highly coveted of all the terrific 7Z daughters; "Fairy Tale" topped the DD&E Dispersal at $14,800. Donor cow for; DD&E McDougal, Dale Storebo, Sterling Shaw and Vaugh Gibbons.
6th Calf Female by 36R retained by Delbert Enns daughter.
7th Calf Female by Universe that sold to Eagle Ridge for $4900.
8th Calf Female sold to EDN
9th Calf Female sold to Carter Steer
BSBL 7Z had nine all natural calves without missing a calving. Every calf she produced sold to a breeder. It's pretty phenominal that one cow could produce several donor females that in turn produce more benchmark donor females. We were very lucky to be able to acquire Fairy Tale 71S. The pick of Fairy Tale's flush with Jahari.
Jahari has proven to add muscle, weaning weight, feet, color and disposition. Add that to an already superior cow family and you feel pretty comfortable. 71S Flushmate brother just produced a $47,500 bull for Westgold. Added proof of the genetic power of this cow family
Fairy Tale 71S is a welcome addition to our herd.
Fairy Tale 71S was flushed to Seismic (Solway Adonis x Demby Herlinde) 11 embryos were planted 6/8/13.
Miss Impact 120P
- Another welcome addition to our herd.
1st Calf bull sold to Dempsey Land and Cattle
2nd Calf bull by Appollo sold to Doug Trotzuk
3rd Calf bull Mr. Apollo 11W $17,000 son of 120P that sold to Little Willow and Murray Hoegl
4th Calf bull Mr. Apollo 11x $8900 son of 120P that sold to JNR
5th Calf heifer by Apollo retained in herd.
Has 2 Spring born Apollo bull calves. Full brothers to Mr Apollo 11W and Mr Apollo 11x.
120P's 6th calf Mr. Apollo 405Z sold to Crossroad Farms for $8,000
Miss Impact 120P last three bull calves have averaged $11,000 What's even more impressive is the long time, highly respected breeders that have purchased sons of 120P. Little Willow, JNR, Crossroad Farms who last Spring sold 88 bulls for a $6,016 average! And Murray Hoegl who's sale sold 67 bulls that averaged $7,180! With Mr Appollo 11X sons averaged $8,900!
These Cowboys are the best of the best.
To date all five of 120P calves by Appollo have been blood red and you can clearly see that her calves can elevate quality in top herds.
We will be flushing this "herdbull producing machine" to Appollo and we are anxious to see the full sibs to the above mentioned herd sires.
