  • Muirhead & Bohrson Welcome Welcome to the 11th Annual Muirhead Cattle Co Bull Sale. We will have 72 bulls on offer that represent the Muirhead program strongly with large sire groups. Muirheads have built their cow herd around easy calving, structurally sound, strong uddered females that go out and work hard in the real world with minimal pampering. The cowherd is strictly evaluated from the Muirheads and you can be assured there is a strong and productive female behind each and every bull. This years offering is slightly lower in numbers with the quality as strong as ever. The black bulls are fea-tured by Three Sixty (2011 Muirhead High Seller) sons and what a great job he has done. 680S has really clicked on the Muirhead program and it is evident as he has direct sons along with grandsons from Three Sixty and 96X. The In Dew Times are an impressive group along with many calv-ing ease bulls on offer from Odin, Kosmo and many more. The red division is highlighted by a good group of Red Bull sons that are big topped and performance oriented. There is a 96X son that is a feature red bull along with strong sire groups from Buckeye, El Dinero and Winchester. The 2 Year Old Bulls have been a highlight over the past years and this will be one of the most consistent and sought after groups of extra age Simmental bulls to sell all year. The bulls can cover more ground, more cows and are intention-ally bred for this marketing avenue. The Muirhead family has once again brought an exciting group of bulls that they stand behind 100%. Feel free to contact them at any time about the offering and if we can be of any assistance to you, feel free to call us and we will represent you in a professional manner. See you in Shellbrook on February 25!

    Welcome to the 2013 edition of our annual bull sale. We would like to start by extending a sincere thank you to our customers for your loyal patronage! We feel very confident that you will find a bull to fit your needs that is backed by customer service you have come to trust. We are excited about the offering and are impressed by the growth and development on both age groups. The majority of the bulls will be black hided and we have 22 bulls that are spring/summer born 2 year olds. As we expand our commercial cow herd we understand the importance of functionality and use-ability that our customers demand. The offering is big and stout, heavy haired and sound. We continue to expect our cows to work hard, producing pounds at weaning while maintaining condition and re-breeding. We continue to think that our cows should work harder than us! Commercial calf prices continue to remain strong and more than ever it is important to have a high quality bull who produces consistent market topping calves! We look forward to welcoming you to the ranch on February 25th. The bulls are always available for view-ing prior to the sale and if you have any questions on the offering please do not hesitate to call!

    Three sixty is a bull that we were pretty high on as we watched him develop as a calf. We were excited to purchase part of him back to use as a large part of our black program. He impresses us with his overall mass and performance. His offspring are very consistent, stout, hair and extremely functional.
