Interesting stuff. I live about 10 minutes from what was the Triple C farms. A good friend actually rents the second farm for his cattle now. My sister's grew up showing against both of the Allen kids.... County fair was a bit tougher in our neck of the woods lol! Oddly enough, though this isn't necessarily big time cattle country, I can name quite a few nationally known programs that are or were within a 30 minute drive of my house...
I last saw the Allen's in 2008 at the simmental national classic in Wichita Falls, Tx. Sat with them for the awards banquet. I think Roger and Kade are back in Illinois and I believe Sam and Koty are in Tennessee. Nice people.

Yep. Roger has probably one of the best eyes for evaluating stock I've run across, and the kids were some of the best showman I've seen. We only now understand how lucky we were to have Roger teach our little 4-H team how to judge.

I live literally 4 miles from Goodrich Place, just across town from Saftners Golden Maples (hereford, most recent NAILE champion bull), a stones throw from Cloud 9 (former Triple C, Damar), 20 minutes from Lamb Brothers Herefords and about 25 minute from Fred Larson Herfords, and many more. I consider myself blessed to have some of these operations nearby and know most of them on a personal level.

I purchased a semen tank last year with a nice variety of Triple C semen along with some foundation black bulls like 600U and only 2 bulls with Dream On genetics. Looking forward to what some of it will do.

Had my hopes up but still a very good calf.
I always keep an extra bull so i will keep my hopes up.
The last 600U bull I owned i picked the mating and was lucky enough that it was a bull calf.
When he was about 30 months old I had to have colon surgeries and sold most of my cattle. Still waiting for my next one.

Simme,
I had a halfblood Generation III daughter(out of an Angus cow) that stayed here 'til she was 17... and only left then because she aborted her last calf (Neospora) mid-pregnancy. A very sound ol' gal, with a good udder and great disposition... was a diluted, mousy-brown blaze faced cow... think every daughter she left in the herd was that same brown color... that color dilution gene is hard to breed out.
