Tool Man is the grandson of a Peppi Langegger bull named Junior. We purchased Tool Man's mother in a group of cows from Gary hill. Gary had rented a son of Junior from Jerry Perkins for breeding in 1995. This breeding has resulted in a number of good bulls for Taylor Elk Ranch, including Tool Man and Amos.
Tool Man grew an impressive set of spike antlers and was used to backup our A.I. cows in 1997. The next spring as a 2-year-old, he cut 12.16 lbs. of velvet.
He was again used for breeding that fall, bred 100% of his cows and proceeded to cut 19.11 lbs. of velvet. In the spring of 2000, Tool Man set a new benchmark for the Taylor Ranch by cutting 30.8 lbs.
As the photo shows, Tool Man exhibits the traits of a great bull, excellent velvet weights and the obvious potential for incredible hard antler scores. Tool Man has huge, long tines in his lower antler and very large velvet tops.
Tool Man's personality is about as good as it gets. He is not an aggressive bull, yet is an exceptional, proven breeder. He can be fed from a bucket during the rut. Tool Man is a joy to handle as he calmly enters the chute and walks out nearly every time.
