Raise the Standard

Online Bull Sale
February 22, 2022 | SC Online Sales

Welcome  to Sexton Cattle’s “Raise the Standard” bull sale featuring progeny of SXTN Empire 6S25D and Basin Payweight 1682. We greatly appreciate your time to look through our ChiAngus and Chi offering, and invite those interested to attend our open house February 19-20. These Empire and Payweight sons were raised and bred to get rid of problems, not create them. Starting at 12% Chi blood and reaching nearly 20%, this group opens the door for a wide variety of breeding options for any cattlemen. Note these bulls are as true as they come, scanned on 1/14/22, the thickest rib fat was only .59”. These bulls won’t melt once turned out on cows.


Empire is a high percentage ChiAngus bull who has laid the foundation to leave his legacy on the breed. At 20.37% Chi, he does a great job of making cattle that are going to be useful regardless of which avenue is your focus. The calves come with that extra shape and consistent style designed for today and tomorrow’s beef industry. To quote Dustin Hurlburt, CEO of the Chianina Association on a recent herd visit – “We looked at Empire-sired cattle from a week old to replacements in the heifer pen to first calf heifers with babies at side…they are good footed, smooth jointed, heavy muscled sound cattle.” Semen is collected and housed at Nichols Cyro Genetics. Sire to lots 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9.


We selected Payweight to complement our Wiggles line of ChiAngus females. 1682 sired calves don’t lack dimension to their center and fleshing ability, further proving why he is the gold standard for commercial Angus programs. Both sons have been used in our replacement pen of Empire sired females. Sire to lots 3 & 4.


Thanks again for your time and viewing,

What a way to start “Raise The Standard”. This Empire calf has had the “it” factor since he was ½ way out. He is a tank, wide from top to bottom, front to back and still designed right in his shoulder. Super quite disposition and from a cow that gets it done every year. 14.45% Chi with an adjusted WW of 730 lbs. and a weaning ratio of 126. He ranks in the top 10% of the breed for weaning weight, top 1% for milk. His scan data came back just as impressive with an adjusted REA of 15.6” and a % IMF ratio of 104. Easily one of the best calves we have ever raised except for his daddy. Don’t miss this stud…

Here’s a complete one, that we can’t fault. He’s sound structured, big ribbed, and takes a deep heeled step towards producing stylish, yet productive females. If he was not so heavily related to our herd he would have been used across the group. This super quiet bull is 16.94% ChiAngus, with an actual yearling weight of 1326 lbs, ranks in the top 5% for milk and boasts an actual % IMF of 6.19% as a mature bull. He’s right the choice for a set of commercial or registered cows.

Lot 3
Lot 3 - 0S19_edited.jpg

This Payweight son has a super solid pattern and design, with EPD’s that jump off the page. We used him to cover the ’21 replacement heifers and look forward to those calves spring of ‘22. Having 1682 as his sire and Eagle Scout and Wiggles 1P on the bottom side, the cow potential in his offspring should be off the charts. 9.26% ChiAngus. Actual yearling weight of 1323 lbs. He ranks in the top 3% of the breed for weaning weight, top 4% for yearling weight, top 10% for CED, top 2% for milk, top 5% for CEM and a 4% IMF with a 19.1 REA.

Lot 4 - 0S58_edited.jpg

We used this Payweight son on our ‘21 fall replacement heifers. He goes back to a Beckett cow that was 9 years old when we acquired her and she is still producing at 13 with a super well designed udder. When good bulls come from great cows, this one gets noticed. When you read his EPD profile, it is a pretty simple decision – he needs to be used if you plan on staying in the cow business. He is 19.80% ChiAngus with an actual yearling weight of 1265 lbs. He ranks in the top 2% of the breed for CED, top 4% for birthweight, top 10% for weaning weight and yearling weight, top 3% for stayability and top 1% CEM.

Lot 6 - 1S08.jpg

Here’s an Empire ChiAngus calf with all the extras, solid structured and well made with a great attitude. With several cow makers in the back of his pedigree on both sides, we expect him to make his mark on his offspring. 15.92% ChiAngus with a weaning ratio of 115. He also ranks in the top 10% of the breed for weaning and yearling weight, hitting the top 2% for milk.

Pattern – Pattern – Pattern, did we mention his pattern? These Empire calves have substance with design and this is just another great example. If you need something longer necked and squarer hipped then this Empire calf is it. It might have something to do with his mother having a National Champion on both sides of the pedigree (Tracking Norman & Wiggle 1P). He is 16.24% ChiAngus with a weaning ratio of 109.

Lot 8
Lot 8 - 1S25_edited.jpg

Here is a Chi bull that “gets it done” when you’re needing dimension and capacity. Moves great and should be one high volume dude as a mature sire. His mother works hard, and easily proves yearly that she gets to go another round. Better yet, he scanned the highest adjusted % IMF of the yearling bulls with a 4.01% while maintaining an actual rib fat of .21”. 12.77% Chi with a weaning ratio of 105.
