A little Swinging 'B' Beefmaster Ranch History

In 1997, we, Mackie, Norma Jean, Kent (our son) and Crystal (our daughter) Bounds moved to the little town of Axtell, Tx.  We were city folks moving to the country.  We had a few  tiger striped cattle, and white faced baldies we were running on the 215 acres we purchased.   Our children started in the Axtell ISD school, signed up for FFA, and the new ag. teacher Bill Radde, convinced our son that the only animal to show was a Beefmaster.  And the rest is history.  From one Beefmaster show heifer, we ended up getting another Beefmaster show heifer and then another.  We ended up dispersing all our other cattle, and started up in the Beefmaster Business.  With time, and years, and the help of Robert Williams, our past consultant, we have gradually worked on upgrading our Beefmster herd with better quality and higher genetics.  Take the time to look over our cattle.  We have specialized in Beefmster show heifers the last few years.    
Then we purchased Bullet Proof ...the next great polled Red Beefmaster Bull.   With the help of Mike Green, our consultant, we are advancing toward the great fields of the more superior Beefmaster Genetics.  With Bullet Proof as the premier leader in this field and advancing into the field of donor cattle and  embryo calves, we hope to make a more postive impact on the Beefmaster Breed.   Bullet Proof has become a Legend, and even though he has gone to one to happy hunting grounds, his offsprings still live on.  Bullet Proof has greatly influenced the Swinging B Ranch's program.  
We now have a new Herdsire, that we will soon be marketing.  Adonis is out of Dr. Love x DeJa Vu.  He has it all:  PRETTY, PERFORMANCE, & PEDIGREE.  Adonis left his stamp on the Swinging B Ranch, and has passed on leaving some great offspring in his place.
 The Newest Bull on the ranch is one we have raised SWB Luckenback.  We are excited about this bull.  He is out of New Dimension x SWB Autumn's Girl with some great data.  C1047176 ID# 08614 Top 10% WW,  Total Maternal, Calving Ease and Dollar M EPD.  Top 15% YW and Scrotal Circ. EPD.  Top 20% Dollar T EPD.  12.5 Ribeye, 3.52 IMF, RFI -1.94, 85.79 Dollar T, 25.56 Dollar M.  You can't beat numbers like this.  So we are excited to be marketing this bull now for $50. per unit.  Just remember This Brand is Value +.  
We are an official member of GO TEXAN.
Keep the Swinging 'B' Ranch in mind for your future Herdsires, Replacement Heifers, Donors, or Show heifers.  We look forward to meeting you.

Come on thru' our gates...and see what kind of cattle we have!

Our three grandkiddoes!  They are the sunshine of our lives!  Each have the sweetest personalities, but all so different personalities!

Just a another photo in the back of our Ranch.  I love this old photo.  There use to be a old shed on the back of our place, and the cattle loved to hang out around it.
