DRC 101VM “Dover” for short, comes from the noted Sindelar Shorthorn herd (Dover Ranch Corporation) of Billings, MT. These cattle have long been selected for their low birth weight, calving ease, and easy fleshing ability. Dover Ranch Corporation is truly a low input operation featuring solid red, polled, moderate framed cattle.
Dover is proving to be a calving ease sire. All his calves to date have been born unassisted and are very vigorous calves. His calves, out of various dams, have had much lighter BW's than other well known sires have thrown on these same cows. Semen is now available at $35/unit, $15/certificate. (Commercial discount available).
With mixed emotions, we also would like to announce that we sold full possession and 1/2 semen interest in this sire to Jungels Shorthorn Farm in North Dakota and Shady Maple Farms in Illinois.

Masculinity and correctness is the only way to describe these moderate BW bulls by “Dover”. We only keep the bulls that we would be happy to use ourselves. These photos were taken 11/22/08.
