Connelly Capitalist 028 x TC Barbara 5016
Owned with Nic Harding Angus, ND
Huron exemplifies every breeding goal we have at Topp Angus. He stems from the high producing, predictable, never-miss Barbara cow family, where the first three cows on the bottom side of his pedigree have a combined nursing ratio of 20 at 107. With the problem-free calving history so deeply ingrained in Huron’s pedigree we decided to use this high performing South Dakota 402 son on both heifers and cows his first breeding season. We are happy to report his calves come easy, averaging 80 pounds on heifers, have excellent vigor, and early growth. Structurally this 6-frame bull is extremely wide-based, with a huge chest floor and full heart girth, deep flanked with a square hip that carries all the way down to his excellent feet and blends it together into a balanced, extremely attractive, proud herd bull look.

Poss Easy Impact 0119 x Poss Ellunamere 0170
Owned with Poss Angus, NE
ATM comes to us from the same program and a ¾ brother to the heavily used Poss Maverick. ATM brings us the low birth predictability and positive marbling traits of the infamous Basin Payweight 1682 with a longer hip, larger frame, and better epd profile. Placing in the top 30% on claw, 10% on angle, top 1% on pap, top 15% on marbling and top 20% on all $value traits, whether you believe in numbers or not this is a bull that is difficult to ignore. This guaranteed calving ease sire is a big middled bull that is full through his heart girth with a very large, correct foot, and balanced traits throughout. ATM is an outcross for our program but breeds the same balance and functionality we require from all of our bulls.

Sitz Dash 11100 x TC Ruby 4076
Owned with Chuck Magill, ND
Binford is the real deal and is being used extensively in our program. He is extremely long, with excellent muscle expression, wide based from top to bottom with great feet, and the amount of bone that is needed in the angus breed today. Best of all his dam Topp Ruby 3753 is an incredible pathfinder cow (as are two additional sisters) with extra milk, strong attachment and perfect teat placement. We use Binford for power, performance and maternal. Binford placed in the top 1% in weaning and yearling on his epd profile and with the shear thickness and length of his first calves on the ground it is very obvious this number will hold true.

Owned with Hamco Cattle Co, MB Canada
Drive is our resident bomb-proof, calving ease sire. Drive has extreme length of body, a strong topline and full heart girth which he has stamped into his first progeny. Drive’s maternal predictability and the broodiness of his first heifer calves has us excited about the set of cows he will leave us with. His first calf crop came easy and weaned off well, ratioing a 97 at birth and a 102 at weaning. Drive has maintained his condition very well throughout six natural breeding seasons in the first two years.

Owned with Janssen Angus, IA
Republic is a high performance, gentle natured bull that recorded an individual IMF ratio of 110, 924lb 205-day weight and an impressive 1430lb individual yearling weight in our program that prides itself on not overfeeding bulls on test. Out of our very influential herd sire The Donald 4030 and the grandson of one of the foundation donor cows of the Topp Angus program Republic’s pedigree is packed with the most elite bloodlines Topp Angus has to offer. We love his extra frame, wide base, long body, and superior foot quality. Republic is long strided, free moving with a herd bull presence. If structural soundness and phenotypic balance is of importance to you as a breeder, then Republic deserves a hard look.

Owned with Hamco Cattle Co, MB Canada
Hamco Raptor 3F was sold to Hamco Cattle Company, Glenboro MB Canada, in utero to the heifer Topp Peggy 6055 during the 2017 Topp Angus Female Sale. Upon seeing Raptor at the Hamco sale in March of 2019 we instantly decided to purchase part of him. He stood out for his performance, length of body, bone, and overall width. His excellent docility came very naturally and made it very easy to evaluate him. The predictable performance stemming from the Peggy cow family along with his calving ease attributes and huge ribeye make him a bull that not only provides us with lots of mating flexibility but gives us a go-to sire to improve upon all balanced traits. Top 20% CED, 2% WW, 2% YW, 10% RADG, 10% angle, 2% REA.

We purchased back breeding rights in United from Jake Hegland, Oberon, ND, after he sold in our 2020 production sale. We could not ignore the mating flexibility, efficiency, and excellent profile that United possesses. There is maternal predictability and productivity built into his pedigree combining Musgrave Aviator with Blackbird 6078, the maternal sister to Topp Barron 6148 and a full sister to SAV Pioneer 7301. We expect great things from this young calving ease sire.

Topp Barron 6148 is a true performance bull that cannot be ignored. After Barron sold to Nic Harding Angus, McHenry North Dakota in the 2018 sale we decided to purchase part of him back for in herd use.

Barron possesses extreme length of body, supported by a strong topline, incredible muscle expression, a full heart girth and extra bone, all being carried on a big, solid foot. No different than his sire The Donald, Barron stamps all of his bull calves with the same power and performance as himself and his daughters with a strong, balanced build coupled with femininity.

Freal was brought in as a do-it-all sire.
He was purchased in February of 2017 and soon after put to work breeding the newly developed spring herd. He has proven himself to be able to stand up to the rigors of two breeding seasons a year and continues to hold up.
Freal has the moderate birth, high growth, extended length, maternal and carcass that we strive to produce. His added docility and perfect foot are traits that we require and that he excels in. His calves continue to come unassisted and are capable of withstanding the harsh environment that North Dakota has to offer.

Owned with Sauk Valley Angus, IL
The Donald came to us in our pursuit of a bull that can balance the genomic and EPD profile that we desire with the absolute structural integrity that the industry needs.
The Donald quickly became a ranch favorite at Topp Angus. Whether it is his ability to sire performance in the form of extreme length, depth of body, and stoutness all in a moderate frame size or his quiet demeanor that he breeds into every one of his calves it is difficult to determine which part of him we love more.
With their flawless udders and broodiness his daughters have yet to disappoint. We look for the Donald daughters to have a lasting impact on our cowherd for many generations to come.

Mogul was purchased for the Topp Angus program as a unique outcross sire that could sire short gestation and lower birth weight yet pack on the pounds quickly to assist those fall calves going into winter. He added some frame along with performance.
His sons produce the type of calves that feeder operations crave. They have the added frame to improve yield grade and a lower dmi/RADG ratio.

Wolf Creek came to us as the genetic gem of the 2012 Mohnen Angus Sale out of White Lake, South Dakota.
After touring the Dave and Yvonne Hinman herd in Malta, Montana and witnessing firsthand the base of cows that HA Image Maker provided I was set on owning a son. Soon after I met with and toured the Mohnen Angus operation and set my sights on Wolf Creek.
Combining the maternal predictability of Image Maker and the herd bull producing capabilities of Jilt 1283 it was a surefire guarantee that Wolf Creek could provide us with the genetic consistency we were seeking.
Wolf Creek has gone on to sire some of the finest producing females in the Topp Angus program.
They are the exact functional females that we all desire – they out produce themselves and never miss.

Hancock was the first natural calf raised by TA Marcia 0616 who went on to become one of our top donors in our program. She produced broody, heavy milking females and stout, wide based sons.
Hancock has proven to be a reliable calving ease sire. His calves were born unassisted with lots of vigor. He produced sound, feminine daughters with flawless udders and well balanced, free moving sons.

Rito 1I2 of 2536 Rito 6I6 x Baldridge Erroline L540
Owned with TC Ranch Inc., NE and Vin-Mar Cattle Co, NE
Focus In was brought in as the initial walking sire when we bought the original TC fall herd. He was our introduction to a new way of viewing what a calving ease sire can be; massive. This bull was big-topped, big quartered, massive ribbed, with lots of bone, and a large, sound foot.
The pure mass of this bull made calving ease look improbable. However with his short gestation and moderate birth weights we were able to consistently use him on heifers without issue.
With our foundation herd calving mainly in the fall on grass problem-free calving is something that we cannot ignore. Calves need to be born unassisted with excellent vigor.
We look for moderate birth, growing into mass and power with all of our herd bulls. This is exactly what Focus In was able to offer to the foundation herd as good as anyone could ever ask for.
