Our Sires

Fieldstone Braunvieh has a history of producing Great Sires and the performance results to prove it. In the two years that Fieldstone Braunvieh competed in the Canadian Braunvieh Bull Test, we have won and finished at the top both years.

Our Results

1996 - Canadian Braunvieh Bull Test

Fieldstone Esquire was the #1 bull of 43 bulls tested. He outperformed all other bulls in Performance and Carcass Evaluations. He was sold to Brazil and has gone on to sire many great progeny.

1997 - Canadian Braunvieh Bull Test

We entered five bulls into the test that was split up into two groups accordingly to their age.

In Group 2 - Fieldstone Forerunner was the #1 bull of 21 other bulls. He had an Average daily gain of 3.96 pounds compared to the second place bull in Group 2 of 3.43.

In group 1 - Fieldstone Fuery and Fieldstone Full Tilt tied for second place of 20 bulls for combined performance in Average daily gain and weight per day of age. Fieldstone Forerunner, Fuery and Full Tilt have all been proven in my own purebred herd and their genetics are ready to be shared with the world.

We have began genetic testing our sires to evaluate for the following genes. Each animal can be Homozygous for each of these traits, Heterozygous or do not carry the gene at all. Since these are traits we are looking to develop, a homozygous carrier is most desired.

  • Leptin gene - associated with energy balance and fat disposition
  • PMCH gene - associated with tenderness and fat disposition
  • IGF2 gene - associated with rib eye area growth
  • CRH- gene - associated with stress response on appetite and growth

FIELDSTONE ESQUIRE ET

1996 Canadian Braunvieh Bull Test.

Esquire was born March 14, 1995 and is a son of Starline Imperial FLE 9X, out of a Delfin granddaughter. He has a birth weight of 103 lbs. and an actual weaning weight of 762 lbs. (adjusted to 205 days to 768 lbs.).

In an effort to raise the awareness of "Braunvieh" and gather valuable performance data on pedigreed animals, a bull test was undertaken at Cattleland Feed Yards, Strathmore, Alberta. As well, a Steer trial was also set up with 49 Braunvieh cross steers.

Cattleland is Alberta's biggest performance testing center with hundreds of bulls of all breeds being fed and tested.

In total, 43 Braunvieh Bulls were tested. The test began Nov. 2, 1995 and ended 145 days later, March 26, 1996. Esquire completed the test weighing 1339 lbs., with the highest gain per day on test of 3.80 lbs. per day (the test average was 3.04 lbs. per day). Keeping in mind we had one of the longest and coldest winters on record this year, we were pleased with this result.

Cattleland also provides a Carcass Evaluation based on ultrasound measurements. Of the 43 bulls evaluated, Esquire's measurements were at the top of all bulls measured. Esquire had the least back fat of 3.1 mm (0.12 in.); he had the largest ribeye measurement of 13.23 sq.in., and his marbling score was the highest at 239 (AAA). The bull with the next biggest ribeye had a ribeye measurement of 12.78 sq.in. (0.45 sq.in. smaller than Esquire's). Esquire had the highest Lean Meat Yield of 63.4%. The ultrasound measurements were made at 11 months of age and if adjusted to the normal 12 months measurement age would be even better.

His next test was semen evaluation which he passed with flying colors. His scrotal circumference was 35 cm.

From the time Esquire was born he has been a very "eye catching" bull. His disposition is terrific.
