Cattle for Sale
Why Shorthorn? The most obvious answer is if you have commercial cattle and you are not cross breeding you're losing dollars. As many of you know incorporating red, white, and roan genetics into your herd enables you to increase longevity of your cow herd, improve mothering ability, and wean heavier and healthier calves.
A Bonus: If you retain ownership of your Shorthorn cross calves, it will allow you to go for higher quality grades without sacrificing yield grade.
If you have read the “About Us” on our website, you know we are a closed herd. We decided in 2010 to challenge the existing herd with only limited outside influence; that influence being the use of selected AI sires. Prior to 2010 we used extensive embryo transfer, and we will probably use it in the future. With that said, we presently choose to make our cows do the work of raising calves.
We will be offering six bulls, and they represent Shorthorn genetics from around the world. All were assembled and raised in a cost effective manner, with no creep, limit fed, heavily analyzed, and culled rigidly. Our farm market beef allows us to analyze our bulls between the ages of 12 and 17 months and harvest bulls that don't pass standards we believe are important in the selection process. Some of the standards that we set are as follows: structure, masculine characteristics, toughness, and disposition, along with adequate performance and EPDs.
