Red Doc Top Shelf 1342is a cattlemen's dream, combining true hardiness and purebred eye appeal.  Lots of thickness and natural muscling, with a clean sheath and an easy keeping constitution, not to mention gentle disposition and lots of libido; it all comes together with this bull.  His calves are consistently good - easy keeping, early maturing heifers and heavily muscled, clean sheathed bull calves.  Check out his son pictured below, Hefte Ranch C02 who we will be using as a herd sire next year.
