to the last round up at Goldrush Genetics. Just a few short years
ago I thought this event would be a long way off. The cows and the
ranch was my life long dream, but its just time in my life to
explore a few different trails. The cow herd has been
built around the best carcass sires in the beef industry with the
commercial man and the final purchaser Ėthe consumer in mind. Iíve
been A.I. ing for nearly 28 years in this herd and everything in
this sale worked for me or its not here. You canít believe how hard
it is to sell some of these cows which Iíve been genetically
engineering for 28 years. Several years of thought and planning have
gone into every generation of this herd, and every one will be
offered here. I believe the genetics offered contain the leading
edge of technology not only from 28 years of a comprehensive A.I.
and E.T. program but a leader in the industry in DNA and carcass
testing. My most rewarding accomplishment as a seedstock
producer is watching Goldrush Genetics cattle perform well for
others. It has been gratifying to see the bull sales emerge as one
that fits the needs of both progressive purebred and commercial
cattlemen. Some of the most respected and progressive operations
have selected Goldrush Genetics to add to their genetic pool. I
appreciate each and every cattleman who has put their trust in
Goldrush Genetics. Iím sure Iíll miss the cattle, but without
a doubt Iíll miss the wonderful people Iíve met through the cattle
industry. Some of the finest people Iíve ever known Iíve met through
the cattle industry. I sincerely hope you can attend the ďLast
RoundupĒ on November 1st. But for those who canít attend Roger and I
will do everything possible to assist you with a sight unseen
purchase or view and bid over the internet.
very much and I hope to see you sale day.
Sincerely, Mike Hynek
To all my cattle friends,
It had always been a dream of mine to
own a herd of purebred cattle, so in 1981 I decided to make it come
true. I let Fred Gosch talk me into raising Gelbvieh, and it sure
was not a mistake. That winter I went out and bought 12 head of 1/2
bloods, 3/4 bloods and purebreds from several breeders to calve in
the spring. That summer I used AI bulls and have used mostly AI
since. I have met many wonderful purebred and commercial
people over the years and that is what makes the last 26 years so
great. For a man who knew nothing about genetics, I think I have
been very lucky. My goal was to raise cattle that had a lot of
growth. The average 205 day weight on my calves selling on November
1 is 704 pounds. I hope the people buying my cattle will get as much
enjoyment from them as I have.
