The history of any herd can never be separated from the current and signature bulls of the herd. The Flying V Beefmasters is no exception. The Flying V’s original Hereford herd bulls from the 1970s like Mischief and Junior, gave way in the 1980s to a long string of signature pure bred Beefmasters herd sires, some acquired from the Lasater Ranch, some Flying V Bred and some AI bred to Lasater Ranch bulls.
The Flying V Beefmaster tradition started with one bull, “Tom”, a tall, fast moving bull bought at the 1980 Lasater Ranch Field Day, and followed by an even more select bull “Gary”, shorter, broader and heavier with a very gentle disposition, brought to the ranch in 1985. Later “#9″ in the 1990s was one of the first Flying V raised AI bulls to make the grade over Lasater Ranch acquisitions, and since then Flying V Texas bred, AI bred, and retired Lasater herd bulls have competed.
Through its history the ranch selected for the Lasater 6 Essentials, with a extra keen eye towards gentleness and workability, and ability to handle the Texas heat, with a slight bias toward polled cattle. The herd is routinely improved through AI, and select acquisition of herd bulls and cows, almost always straight from the Lasater Ranch.
We’ve brought together a brief pictoral history of some of our favorites, and those whose genes anchored our herd, and several of the current bulls.
