Reflected R Ranch, owned & operated by the Curtis Russell family, is dedicated to producing Simmental seedstock that is:

  • Moderately framed;
  • Heavy muscled;
  • Very easy calving;
  • Will help you make money! Since most cattlemen retain their own heifers for replacement females, one of the ways we seek to improve your profitability is by breeding cattle that will make outstanding cows.
We raise our cattle on our ranch in the short-grass country of Southeastern Colorado, just a few miles outside Sugar City.

Our Simmental-influenced herd is a moderate-framed cowherd with an emphasis on calving ease and fertility.

Our bulls go through several culling steps before making it to the sale pen. The rest are turned into steers, with the top heifer mates of the calf crop kept for our own herd. We expect our females to breed early and have a calf every year. If not, they get a one-way ticket to town.

Likewise, disposition must be rated gentle for our family operation.

Our cowherd is  predominately  solid-black, with the addition of solid-red SimGenetics cow in recent years, due to customer's request. They are maintained on roughage year-round, either pasture or low quality baled feed such as corn stalks or cane hay, free choice mineral and only some protein supplementation as calving season approaches.

Cattle are summered on our nearby private pastures and/or grazing shares and brought home to winter pasture before calving in February & March. Nearly all calves are AI-sired or from Embryo Transfers.

RRR Cattle Services now available

mix30
Curtis & Susan Russell have reclaimed the sales of Mix 30 liquid feed and Select Sires semen in southeast Colorado, under the name RRR Cattle Services, LLC.
For liquid feed, we offer the popular high-energy Mix 30. This 16% protein liquid feed is one that we personally use free choice for our own cowherd during the winter and pre-breeding seasons as a protein supplement. It is a great energy source, and easy on your pocketbook. Some customers also use it as a ration conditioner.
We sell it by:

  • Full tanker loads (about 24 ton) delivered directly to your operation.
  • A trailer load (about 6.5 tons) delivered to your operation and put out into your feeding tanks.
  • An option to check out our gooseneck liquid trailer, with you doing the hauling and returning the trailer back to us.
  • Filling your liquid shuttles or containers from our storage tank, which are currently located in La Junta, CO.

For semen services, we are pleased to again be a part of the Select Sires MidAmerica team as your regional sales representative for semen and AI supplies, as well as your liquid nitrogen provider for your AI tanks. Market analysts predict a positive price forecast for cow/calf and seedstock cattlemen in the next few years. Select Sires continues to have outstanding sires to enhance and improve your herd. We would love to visit about what will best fit your program.

    We offer:
  • Liquid nitrogen, where we fill your semen storage tanks and keep them charged. To get on one of our routes, contact us today.
  • Select Sires semen. A great selection of outstanding sires. We also try to group shipper orders to make it more economical for you.
  • Artificial insemination supplies, such as gloves and an assortment of styles of sheaths.
  • Setting up fixed-time AI programs for replacement heifers and/or your cowherd. We can also help with breeding arm service.

We had offered the liquid feed, liquid nitrogen, and semen sales services for nearly 20 years. We sold the business, WW Feed & Supply, and these services to two key employees who took over these areas for a few years. With the recent closing of WW Feed & Supply, Inc. by the Ryan Davis estate, Curt & Susan Russell have come out of semi-retirement to resume offering these key services to southeast Colorado. At this time, fills and deliveries are currently by appointment, with fixed hours of operation to be determined.
For this portion of our business, please contact us at: 719-469-2857 or [email protected].
