is not a single trait bull, but doing it all well,
and being a cow maker may well be his best trait.
His daughters are proving this by producing some
of our best-looking calves.
6776’s calves are extra vigorous at birth
and the bull also has a good disposition. Early
in the 2009 breeding season he was injured and we
were forced to put him down. We continue to use
him as an AI sire.
Forte 6776 earned the Pathfinder Sire Award beginning
in 2016 for having produced daughters that qualified
for the Pathfinder report. To earn this award, MSAR
Forte 6776 has produced daughters that have met
the rigid requirements for early calving, regularity
of calving, and exceptional weaning weights outlined
in the Angus Pathfinder Program.

acquired this bull at the Cedar Top Ranch bull
sale. We purchased him primarily because of his
three-generation pedigree that is packed with
seven maternal Pathfinder sires including his
sire, Rito 054 GDAR, and grandsires CSU Rito 4114
and QAS Traveler 23-4. The dam of Rito 054 GDAR
is Blackcap Forever 485 GDAR; dam to the leading
herd sires Viking 977 GDAR and Traveler 1148 GDAR.
CTR Rito 5503’s dam is a QAS Traveler 23-4
daughter with AAR New Trend on the bottom side
of her pedigree.
CSU Rito 4114, QAS Traveler 24-3 and Rito 054
GDAR made such a positive impact in our cowherd
in the earlier years that the chance to find a
son so closely related was a significant opportunity
Following the maternal tradition, our first daughters
from Rito CTR 5503 are in production and they
are showing much promise of being a great set

Walk On 4 Traveler 584
Walk On 4 Traveler 584 was raised by Darwin Peckham
near Bristow, South Dakota. Walk On has a remarkable
pedigree wrapped up in one genetic package.

we have seen in years. He is extremely sound, has
a great set to his legs, and travels really well.

grand dam to GDAR Traveler 584 LT, Eileenmere Lady

Angus Ranch, being the same linage that produced
AAR New Trend and Oscar 711.
Barbara Perfection 4368 is the dam to Dars Walk
On 4 Traveler 584. She was born in the Sitz herd
from Montana, and is from the Barbara Perfection
family that produced sale-topping animals for the
Sitz program during those years.
though this cow family brought in much revenue,
Peckham was interested in Sitz Barbara Perfection
4368 because of her generational pyramid of good
cows stacked behind her. She has had eleven calves,
with Walk On as her last natural calf.
those of you who desire to stay on the maternal
track, Dars Walk On 4 Traveler 584 is a bull where
all the work has been accomplished. We believe Dars
Walk On will put fleshing ability and capacity into
his calves, and sustainability back into your herd.
He has those traits that have made the Angus cow

Right Time 7757
Right Time 7757’s sire, 24J, is known as the
Cow Maker. 7757’s daughters are following
this pattern, being moderate framed, sharp and feminine,
with excellent udders. Right Time 7757 is from the
Msar Proud Formera 1029 cow and a half brother to
our MSAR Forte 6776 bull. MSAR Right Time 7757 was
the high selling bull in our 2009 Sale to Darwin
Peckham at Bristow, SD.
Right Time 7757’s daughters are proving to
be good solid cows.

including his dam. She has a BR of 9/95, WR of 9/106

of CAR Chinook 786.
chose to use MSAR Chinook 9569 in our herd because
of his sire’s flawless pedigree and strong
performance on his dam’s side going back
several generations. Both his sire and dam have
generations of documented maternal strength.
maternal grand sire, Sitz Traveler 6802, is a
noted female producer. The dam and grand dam of
Chinook 9569 are consistently high producing cows,
having seven, and nine calves on record. The great-grand
dam, 890, is a N Bar Emulation EXT daughter. She
was a high producing, good uddered female as a
fifteen year old, with a total of 14 calves on
record. Her daughters are following this same
pattern of consistent production.
MSAR Chinook is very stylish and slightly larger
framed than our Forte and Right Time sires. Chinook,
like his sire, CAR Chinnook 786, breeds into his
progeny an excellent disposition with eye appeal
from start to finish. We have been pleased with
the daughters in production.

Wilfred 0041 is a larger framed bull that we retained
from our 2010 calf crop. We used MSAR Wilfred 0041
because of his several generations of strong performance
and documented maternal strength on both sides of
great-granddam, Msar Marshall Queen 234-524 has
eleven calves on record. She has interwoven into
both sides of her pedigree Rito 054 of GDAR, CSU
Rito 4114 and QAS Traveler 23-4. His granddam, Msar
Marshall Queen 0970, is double bred to DHD Traveler
6807 and she has produced three outstanding daughters
for our herd. His dam, Msar Marshall Queen 4100,
was a high producing cow with ratios of 6 calves
at 105 on birth; 6 at 106 for weaning, and six at
107 for Yearling.
Wilfred 0041 was named after Debby’s father,
who was a cattle feeder for over 50 years. With
carcass bulls included in the pedigree such as LT
598 Bando 9074 and Papa Forte 1921, we thought it
a suitable name for this bull.

Pedigree and Cow Linage

a prolific breeder, he easily maintains his weight
on grass during the breeding season. His progeny
are eye-appealing cattle with great dispositions.
Game Day 4042 has 10 Pathfinders in his three-generation
pedigree. There is a history of longevity evident

had our first calf crop out of CAR Chinnook 786
in 2009. We were first attracted to Chinnook’s
flawless pedigree and his generations of maternal
excellence. As an outside AI sire, he is one of
the most consistent bulls at weaning that we have
used in a long time. He consistently stamps each
calf with his good disposition, eye appeal and thickness

are pleased with Chinnook’s daughters in production.
The cows have surpassed our expectations. At the
present time our Chinnook daughters have the most
production in our herd. Their sons selling in our
annual sale are the stand out ones, and as people
view our heifers, the Chinnook daughters are the
first ones they ask about. It is rare to find a
maternal bull that sires both such eye appealing
daughters and sons.
Angus Ranch states that Chinnook’s progeny
scanned 100 IMF and 105 for Ribeye Area. CAR Chinnook
786 is a proven calving ease sire, his daughters
have plenty of milk, and an eye appealing style
that is all their own.

SD, and Master Angus Ranch, Chinook, MT, own Chinnook.
Chinnook was raised in the Connelly herd in Montana.

Emblazon 4086 is a proven calving ease sire while his
progeny exhibit excellent growth at weaning. MSAR Emblazon
4086 was purchased at our 2006 Bull Sale by Cedar Top
Ranch, Stapleton. Later we began using 4086 extensively
through AI on our heifers because of his outstanding
dam and grand dam. His progeny are attractive cattle
with thickness. They are easy fleshing, sound and structurally
correct, with his sons being tight sheathed. Emblazon
4086’s daughters have a more moderate frame size
with excellent udders.
Emblazon 4086’s dam has production records of
13 calves at 98 for Birth, 13 calves at 98 for Wean
and 12 calves at 99 for Yearling . The grand dam to
this bull, Old 827, has produced 17 calves with Birth
ratios of 100, Wean Ratios of 101 and Yearling Ratios
of 101. We think enough of this bull that we used
his sons exclusively as cleanup this last breeding
Emblazon 4086’s sire group was well received
in our 2014 sale, averaging $8444.

Papa Forte 1921; N Bar Emulation EXT and GDAR Rainmaker
Emblazon 2092 would rank in the “easy keeping”
and “easy fleshing” category. While
a prolific breeder, he maintains his weight on grass
during the breeding season.
