Black Bonus is a registered 75% Tarentaise bull that was still working at age 13. Like his sire, Energizer, he is black and polled. Black Bonus is an extremely heavy-muscled bull with a tremendous amount of depth and spring of rib. We are using Black Bonus to produce some very functional and popular PCC Composite cattle that are 3/8 Tarentaise. He is co-owned with Toby Foland in Wyoming and Dennis Hoyle in South Dakota.

PCC Breed Selection

Not every breed has the type of cattle that can meet the requirements established by our philosophy. We have studied many different breeds to find cattle with the biological type most suited to our environment and our philosophies. Our focus has always been on low-maintenance cattle with strong maternal traits. Our seedstock program includes Red Angus, Black Angus, Hereford, Tarentaise, Mashona, as well as Composites of these breeds.
