Captain is the #1 most popular AI sire of 2021 for BRC. A upcoming legend for his moderation, natural muscling, and soundness. Never a show bull, what you see is what you get with Captain - and people LOVE him. Quickly becoming a go-to choice for real world cattle with excellent phenotype. Backed by 191/7 and the great Jennessa cow family, Captain represents a multipurpose sire for every situation.

The "Captain" Story
M2 BRC Captain 518/1 was raised by Steve and Nancy Martin of Wichita Ranch in Texas, as a result of embryos they purchased from us in 2015 during our Houston stall specials. The dam of these embryos - +Miss V8 645/6 - is from  Steve Martin's all time favorite cow family from us (Jennessa). When he saw these embryos for sale, he jumped on them. 645 was a former show female for Rachel, and is the mother of the famous Bulls Eye Prada (purchased from a flush from us) and Mr. V8 277/7, the popular bull we sold to Colombia to Ganadera 2R. Everything out of 645 just flat out works. Longevity, fertility, and great maternal strength are loaded here in this cow family.  

Fast forward to early 2018, we were visiting Wichita and looking at calves and we spotted Captain in the pasture. Initially, we thought it was maybe 306, since they are both so dark pigmented. We said - 'Who is that bull Steve?" So he drove over and showed us, and we were blown away. He said it was the bull he raised from the embryos. Being show oriented - Rachel said, "Steve, you need to call James Daniel and get this bull halter broke - he could win Houston!"  Steve laughed and said no, he wasn't interested in halter breaking a 2-year old bull that had never been fed a lick of show feed. But the bull definitely made an impact on us. 

In the fall 2019, the Martin's daughter Elle posted a picture of Captain on her Instagram. Rachel saw it, and immediately texted Steve again: "who is this bull?" He explained once again it was the bull from the embryos. Knowing he was out of our great cow, Rachel asked Steve to sell us an interest in the bull. We felt he was exactly the 'missing link' our specific new BRC program was needing. We have a lot of Noble and 380, but had been looking for something to breed these daughters to, and Captain is the answer. 

So in the spirit of friendship and cooperation, the Martin's sold us half of Captain, and the rest is history. He will likely be the #1 most widely used AI sire in the USA for 2020 because every progressive minded breeder has used Captain. He works on red and grey and reverse sorts like a dream.

I know sometimes people say, don't do business with your friends. Steve has always said "If you can't do business WITH your friends -then who can you do it with?" Every moment of this partnership (and all our partnerships with the Martins) have been just 100% true pleasures. This bull - and the Martin's friendship - are huge blessings to our family and BRC and this partnership has been nothing short of a dream at every level. Both of our families and ranches are proud to see the M2 / BRC genetics being so widely used around the world for the benefit of many ranches worldwide.
