A Note from Frank:
I was visiting my friend Bob Loomis in the fall of 2010 with the intent of buying a few top-end cows. We were standing in his “A” pasture next to Cowboy Chex who was so calm that we barely noticed him.
Cowboy Chex had just turned four years old. When I asked about him, Bob said that he was producing the best calves that he ever got out of a young bull. Later that day, after much discussion, Bob agreed to sell me a 50% interest in Cowboy Chex. About a year later, Bob had such great calves from Cowboy that he agreed to sell me a 100% interest, provided that Bob could keep enough semen to breed later generations of his cows to this wonderful young bull.
Cowboy Chex has taken our program to another level. He has produced so many champion bulls and heifer calves that it is hard to keep count. He is a rare bull who out-produces himself on a regular basis. In another five years, it would not be surprising to see that he has sired more champion bulls than any other longhorn.
He has been bred to BL Catchit three times with unbelievable results. He is the sire of Cowboy Tuff Chex, the longest horn bull ever.
In 2014 we sold a 50% interest In Cowboy Chex to Hoosier Longhorns, one of the best breeders in the Mid-West.
Feel free to call me, Bruce Hazelwood or Justin Rombeck if you would like more information on what Cowboy Chex genetics might mean for your program. We offer his calves, his semen and other breeding opportunities.
