3 exceptional Foundation Bred Beefmaster bulls. Bulls are of straight Lasater breeding and their sire and dams are directly from the Lasater Ranch. First 2 bulls are 3 year olds and the third is a 2. We've personally used them on heifers and cows - they'll sire good growthy steers and you've love their heifers for replacements. 18oo and we'll guarantee the semen and trich test. Bulls are at Wagoner Oklahoma. Hopping Brothers Livestock 918-637-5590.


Some of the yearling heifers we have bulls with at this time.


We're in a small area that's received hardly any rainfall at all this Summer. You might say we're in our own "mini-drought" and we've thrown our sheep and cattle together in the pasture rotation to make our grass go farther. Hopefully we'll get a rain soon!


This past week we were very busy sorting 225 replacement ewe lambs off their mothers and destined for their new homes. Some stayed in the local area but one group went as far North as the Missouri/Iowa state line. With us being very dry I'm sure their mothers will enjoy a break from them for they were starting to show how hard they've been working for a living. I'll have to admit they did a good job this year for they raised a beautiful set of lambs.


Later this week a couple customers will be taking delivery of 225 Spring born replacement ewe lambs they spoke for way back when. Our lambs look really good this year and I'm sure they'll be very pleased with them.


Here are a few of the 14 month old Mashona/Beefmaster cross and Tuli/Beefmaster cross yearling bulls we retained to breed to their heifer mates. They're pictured in their "work clothes" for we're dry, dry, dry and we've been grazing them on some reclaimed coal mine land and they've had no special care whatsoever. We'll be turning them out with the heifers September 20th and I'm sure they're looking forward to the day.


We would like to thank the following people that purchased and picked up yearling bulls today - Glen L. Mangels of the historic Lowry-Mangels Ranch at Lenapah, J&S Cattle Company ( C.a. Jones and Jerry Spencer) and Lynne Smith. Good luck with your bulls and your business is very much appreciated!


Yearling Mashona/Beefmaster cross and Tuli/Beefmaster cross heifers loving life here in Northeastern Oklahoma. Our heat and humidity, fescue pastures and drought conditions have not set them back one bit - a testament to them having heat tolerance and nutritional adaptation. We'll be turning the bulls in with them in another week and we're already looking forward to their first calves.


We have a good selection of ram lambs for sale. They were born in our 35 lambing season that began April 20th and they are out of nice ewes and were raised as twins. Most are tan or off white in color and all of them have good dark colored hooves. They're priced at $250 each.


We have a good selection of 14 month old breeding bulls for sale sired by Mashona and Tuli herd sires and out of Foundation bred Beefmaster females. These bulls are pictured in extreme drought conditions and have not been pampered in any way. If you would like to add heat tolerance, nutritional adaptation and some very good maternal traits to your herd this would be a good place to start. They're priced at $2,000 on a first come - first serve basis.


We had an excellent Winter and our cows made it through with no supplement and we only fed hay during a few days of inclement weather. We've had good Spring rains and we've grown a lot of grass of late. Our cows are putting on weight and they should be in excellent body condition when our calving season begins June 20th. We feel that the time of calving is the most important decision you can make when it comes to managing a set of brood cows for body condition score at calving is the biggest factor determining conception rate. They better be in good shape when they calve to get them rebred!

Dr. Bruce Shanks and his Ag Students from Lincoln University in Missouri will be visiting our Porter farm this afternoon. Looking forward to their visit ............


Arrowleaf clover on some reclaimed mining land on our farm at Porter.


Jeremia Markway - I imagine the spotted ram you bought from us a couple of years ago is the grandsire to the baby lambs pictured here. Our ewes are just getting started lambing good and in a week or so there should be several hundred babies on the ground ..........


Charlie's a young Komondor and here he's pictured out in the big pasture guarding sheep on the first day of his "real job". Until yesterday he'd been up in a smaller area bonding with some lambs. Let's wish Charlie luck in all of his endeavors!


Big'n on guard at the Porter Sheep Farm. You can't beat a Komondor Dog for guarding livestock. Hopefully we'll have a couple of litters of Komondor puppies before the year is out. We've had a lot of people inquire about them lately.


We've been fortunate to have some good rains here in Northeastern Oklahoma and we've got lots of grass. Our ewes will start lambing just about any day now and I'm looking forward to it - for there's nothing any prettier than a big set of ewes and lambs on Spring pasture ..........


This is the first picture I've taken in a long time that showed any water standing here in Northeastern Oklahoma - and it's a welcome change. Rain is a good thing - especially if you're in the livestock business. It's sure hard to grow any grass without it.


We had a few inches of snow here in Northeastern Oklahoma. One thing about it I've never seen the sheep yet when the snow or cold seemed to bother them ...............


Here's a pretty little Komondor Female that I picked up in Southwestern Oklahoma yesterday. We'll soon have 4 Komondor Females. They're excellent Livestock Guardian Dogs and they're really hard to come by. If everything goes as planned there should be a lot more of them around before long ...........


I stopped and took a picture of a friend of ours cattle the other day. They're all on leased pasture, moved daily and he tries to have plenty of grass for them. That's all they get and they look pretty good. Sometimes I think we need to take lessons from who we mentored ....... for he knows no other way than what we taught him - and he isn't about to change. Seems like we're the ones that get off track sometimes.


Happy New Year Everyone!


Here's a picture of the mother of the puppies that we have for sale. She's 3/4 Anatolian (where the black comes from) and 1/4 Pyrenees. She's a really good Livestock Protection Dog - stays loyally with the flock of sheep that she guards, gets along with the other dogs, keeps predators out and with her raising 10 puppies in a hollow log she's got to be a great mother too!


We have some 5/8 Pyrenees - 3/8 Anatolian Livestock Guardian Dog Puppies for sale out of working parents. There are 10 of them and they should be ready for their new homes in Mid January. They are $100 each. Several people have inquired about pups so if you want any send us a $25 deposit per pup and we'll save whatever you want of them for you.


I've always envied people that have one big piece of property where they can run all their livestock - the kind you should be able to manage with only a 4 wheeler and a stockdog. We're pretty spread out and it sure gets expensive driving from pasture to pasture. Our (new to us) Chevy S-10 should help some with our expenses - for anymore it seems like it's easier to save a dollar than to make one.


Cowdog pups - Willie, Tuffy & Jill. They're a little over 4 weeks old now. Jan's their grandmother on both sides - hope they make good dogs.


Heres "Wally" standing in the pasture all bowed up like a big bear daring one of the other guardian dogs (or a sheep) to get the feed that I've just poured out for him. It's been wonderful clear weather for the animals but we are in serious need of some rain - and we're not the only ones. It's dry across a big part of the United States.


We worked some big calves today off some cows that came from the "Four Winds". All of the calves were either Blacks or Charolais and I was thinking about how much more uniform cattle are now than they were 20 years ago. Then the calves would have been every color and kind and if any two would have been alike they would have been sired by a Red Limousin bull. How times have changed ...........


We'll be turning the ram lambs that we retained for herd sires in with our ewes Thanksgiving so our ewes will start lambing the latter part of April. We've always had success lambing at that time - lots of green grass, pretty weather, birds singing and it's just a great time to be alive. We feel that it's Nature's Way - for Spring is when nearly all of the animals in the wild reproduce.


Our Komondor Dogs Big'un and Little'un weren't real crazy about about a stranger showing up to take a look at their sheep friends today.


A writer with the High Plains Journal came down from Dodge City and visited with Hoss and I about our livestock operation today. There will soon be an article in their paper about how we graze our cattle and sheep together. I'm anxious to see how he puts down into words what he saw today ..............


As Eid al-Adha (the Muslim Festival of Sacrifice) nears these ram lambs and their buddies are contemplating a road trip to Florida - but it may not be all fun in the sand and sun for them. Muslims prefer an intact lamb with no blemishes for this holiday - which is October 25th this year.


A Tribute to one of the Greatest Breeders of Livestock the World has ever known - Tom Lasater. Mr. Lasater set out during the Great Depression to raise "more beef for less money". His quest later led to the formation of the Beefmaster Breed of Cattle - a cross of the Brahman, Shorthorn & Hereford breeds which he bred for only economically important traits. He was the Master.
