Steadfast Boaz T71

Steadfast Boaz T71
 
  
 Co-owned with John C. Oswald & Sons of Hutchinson, Kansas
 
 
Boaz has been tested free of the Ostepetrosis gene.  He is OSFBoaz is a 2/25/2007 double-grandson of TR Julian LT142.  Since semen on LT142 has become nearly non-existant some are looking at Boaz as being LT142's successor. We feel so strongly about Boaz that we consigned what LT142 semen we had left to the Bet On Red sale in Reno, Nevada in November 2011. Rhodes Red Angus bought it for $1,200/straw.  We would not have let go of our LT142 semen if we didn't have Boaz.
 
Here is a home video of Boaz taken April 11, 2012.
 
Boaz calved unassisted at 75# out of a first calf heifer. His dam, a daughter of LT142, was the high-selling open heifer at the 2006 Mushrush-Beckton joint sale. Those that have seen her have commented favorably.  To say that she knows how to stay in shape is an understatement.
 
We feel so strongly about Boaz and his dam that we mated Boaz back to his dam.  The result made us smile larger every day.  He was born October 10, 2009 and was named Steadfast Lazarus W94.  He was purchased by a commercial cattleman when he was 9 months old. We set up the same mating again and received another bull calf on September 5, 2010 and was named Steadfast Bailor X06.
 
Boaz is sired by a son of LT142, Mushrush Rocket P016, the high gainer of his contemporary group and the high-seller in the 2005 Mushrush-Beckton sale. Unfortunately P016 sired only a few calves before suffering an injury. We are fortunate to have a son of P016.
