The herd that we acquired from Robert & Trina King in February, 2008, is the result of a selective Butler breeding program spanning over 25+ years, which focused on productivity, conformation, and horn. The success of that program is evident in the animals we purchased.

The foundation of this herd was 3 very impressive longhorns –
Oneil 2, O’Neil 12, and K Trina Graves.

To breed these females, the Kings primarily used these herd sires -
Dode Graves FM962 (Welfare RG 921 x Miss Pauline RG935) &
Tom Horn (Coach x Ace's Dixie Danielle).

In addition to daughters & granddaughters from these 3 awesome Butler females, we also acquired Folsom Butler Bell BW23 and Nike 130, both of whom were purchased by Robert & Trina at the first Butler Breeders Invitational Sale in 1998. Offspring of Oneil 2, O'Neil 12, and K Trina Graves as well as Folsom Butler Bell & Nike 130 are profiled below.
