Soo Line Motive
AAA Reg. #: 16568189
Muscle expression, phenotype and calving ease traits 'motivated' us to use Soo Line Motive at Strommen Ranch. His daughters display the udder quality, calf-raising ability and fleshing ease we like.
Sinclair Emulation XXP
AAA Reg.#: 15355048
We evaluated XXP's progeny for several years before deciding to incorporate his genetics at Strommen Ranch. We are doing so now because we appreciate his ability to transfer length, IMF and muscle in an attractive package. XXP cattle excel in commercially important traits like calf survivability, fertility in a practical environment and they offer superior mothering ability. Of special note is the longevity of his dam - a cow that remained productive into her late teens.

OCC Juneau 807J
AAA Reg. #: 13627989
We utilized OCC Juneau 807J in our embryo transfer program to produce big-bodied, easy-fleshing, excellent-uddered females with good dispositions. Every calf born at Strommen Ranch will be directly out of our embryo transfer program. We will continue to utilize Juneau because of his ability to make exceptional females and bulls that have the capacity and muscle to be true beef bulls.
Hard-working, easy-fleshing, moderate-framed, maternally oriented ANGUS genetics.
SAV Resource 1441
AAA Reg. #: 17016597
Upon much research, evaluation and consideration, we decided that Resource needed to be a part of our program. This very moderate-framed bull is tremendously long, thick and stout, with as much Angus breed-character as you can put in one. He brings to the pasture the basics of efficiency and real-world fleshing ability with muscle, masculinity and superior feet quality. We evaluated many progeny and full siblings and liked what we saw. These cattle fit our ideals and philosophy on efficient, grass-based cattle production.
Connealy Capitalist 028
AAA Reg. #: 16752262
Select Sires says Capitalist is "unmatched in his ability to transmit mass and body width with as much visual muscle as you can ask for. [He is] king of the cowmakers; his daughters have perfect udders and raise heavy calves. [And he is] a proven Calving Ease sire who does not disappoint in terms of siring muscle and performance - a rare combination!"
Owned with Bruin Ranch, Upchurch Angus and Genex, CRI
AAA Reg. #: 18248293
We are excited to introduce Bruin Torque 5261. He is by the maternal and Pathfrinder sire, SAV Density 4336, and out of the dam of Bruin Uproar. This double-bred Right Time will transmit muscle, performance and maternal ability. Torque will be a perfect mating for daughters of today's popular sires that need more maternal function and power.
Strommen Ranch Sires
Chasing fads or using one-trait selection is a really good way to hurt the important traits we all need to survive in the beef industry: fertility, longevity, sound feet, legs and udders. That’s why we use proven, balanced-trait bulls that have daughters in production and have made Pathfinder status.
This decision gives us the opportunity to evaluate the bull’s calves and daughters in production before we use him. Many of the bulls we are using are still alive and producing semen at 10 to 15 years of age - a true sign of fertility and longevity that they have likely passed on to their daughters.
