Hundreds of animals named Battle Intense. Most born between 1957 and 1959. Without a registration number or the full name, you'll never track it down.

Wiese and Sons had some of the last Battle Intense bloodline cattle that I remember seeing.

The Battle Intense cattle went much the way many other Hereford bloodlines did from that era. When the Line 1 cattle became so popular, they were diluted and lost via outcrossing.

We had several good herds of Battle Intense based Hereford cattle in this area(Stephenville, TX) in the 60s. but those breeders are all dead now and their herds long dispersed.

I believe the original bull was Battle Intense (3920000), born in 1941.
