The Captain Morgan calves have created a great deal of interest when they are presented to the industry. They rank among the top individuals in their respective owners' herds. The industry has been excited to see them at the major shows and to have opportunities to invest in Captain Morgan genetics. Sun Rise Simmentals' and JP Cattle Company's Captain Morgan sons were highly sought after at the 2015 and 2016 Proudly Western Bull Sales.
Captain Morgan progeny continue to have a major influence on the breed. They show up as high sellers and show winners at major events and serve the commercial industry well, siring calves with the conformation and pounds to bring top dollars.
