A Performance Tradition


Cow Families

These are the foundation Angus and Red Angus cow families of the GPI herd. For over four decades and through many generations, we have selected for great dispositions, non- forgiving fertility and mothering ability along with the most elite curve bending genetics we could find each breeding season. Our herd has become what it has been selected to be. Generations of easy fleshing, voluminous matrons with the ability to produce breed leaders in most all traits. These are the mothers to numerous test station leaders, herd bull prospects and foundation females for many herds in the upper Midwest. We have visited many of the top herds in the country, and we come home even more proud of what many visitors claim as one of the most elite performance Angus herds in the upper Midwest.

The Blackbird Family

G P Blackbird 239

The founding member of the Blackbird tribe is Ankony B999 Lass 28073 (437N). She was purchased in 1981 as our pick of the Corbin influenced Emulous bred females at Ankony Shadow Isle Ranch of Minatare, Nebraska. Her grandam is Blackbird of Coalgate 21, the dam of Gaines Lady. Gaines Lady was arguably the most influential female from the Murray Corbin herd of Connerville, Oklahoma. This cow family has been extremely productive, fertile and long lasting. The highlights of our Blackbirds are:

The Faith Family


The initial member of this cow family is LSF Faith LA416. LA416 was purchased in 2001 from Ludvigson Stock Farm of Cushing, Iowa. We feel that LA416 was the best Marias daughter to sell in 2001. This cow family has been extremely prolific, producing many great herd bulls. The Faiths are some of the top matrons in the breed. Some of our most impressive Faiths are:

The Katinka Family

The founding member of the Katinka tribe is Ankony B999 Lass 35824 (824R). 824R was purchased in the fall of 1974 from Ankony Angus Corporation of Bloomfield, Iowa. As a senior in high school, my best friend and future wife, Claudine, and I ventured to Bloomfield to add some Dynamo daughters to our Angus herd. As young seventeen-year-olds, we were overwhelmed when we found ourselves selecting through over 400 heifers. The Katinka family is one of our originals and has stood the test of time. Despite selection and hard culling over the last four decades, the Katinkas are still some of the most prominent females in our herd. Short gestation with superior growth and maternal traits best describe the Katinka females. These are some of our most prominent Katinkas:

The Lexy Family

The founding member of the Lexy family is Lexy 1199 S D G. 1199 was purchased in 1999 from Steven Goodfellow of Bruce, South Dakota. We were looking to add a new cow family with breed-leading growth and style, and 1199 was what we thought to be one of the top heifers to sell in the fall of 1999. The Lexys are just that — tremendous growth and extremely eye appealing. Some of our best performing Lexys are:

As a senior in high school, Claudine and I ventured to Bloomfield to add some Dynamo daughters to our Angus herd. The Prides are the basis of our herd.

The Princess Family

G PP rincess 125

G P Princess 125

The founding member of the Princess family is Ankony Miss Emulous 510H9 (Y700). In the fall of 1989, we ran a computer search to find the top WW and YW EPD non-parent females in the breed. Y700 was in the top ten in both areas. We purchased Y700 from Ankony Shadow Isle Ranch of Minatare, Nebraska, after spending almost three hours searching the lots for Y700, not wanting the staff at Ankony to know what we were looking for. Y700 descends from Miss Emulous 243 who we owned before selling her at 19 years of age to Vintage Angus of California. Miss Emulous 243 is the dam of Emulation 31. These females have produced many of our high-indexing bulls each year. The best of the Princess family are:
