Thank you for taking an interest in our bulls. This is Jess and my second year developing our sale bulls here at home and we are always finding ways to hopefully improve. Our program is very similar to Dad and Will’s with some subtle differences. Our cows are bred in multiple sire groups and registered calves are DNAed for parentage. The cows are range calved, but we run through them several times a day to keep up with tagging and check for problems. Calves are weaned in October and around November, we sort off the bull calves into a smaller pasture to start giving them pellets while on pasture.
We are DEVELOPING bulls NOT FEEDING bulls. Just as mom and dad have been doing for years, our bulls are developed out on pasture and are not overfed. We feel this promotes better longevity and they shouldn’t lose condition while breeding. While wintered on pasture as calves, this crop of bulls received an average of 3.5 lbs of an alfalfa based pellet and approximately 16 lbs of processed hay daily. This year we had excellent moisture and these bulls as yearlings on pasture received only mineral and salt. Come fall, we brought them home and they received approximately 6.5 lbs of alfalfa pellets per day along with processed hay. We started this December 2, as it seems the spring storms put our whole year a little behind.
Guarantee & Delivery
We guarantee our bulls to be sound breeders for the first year, however we do not guarantee against buyers’ negligence or act of God. We are willing to discuss keeping the bulls longer than usual, but offer a discount for early delivery. We will offer free delivery for up to 250 miles, and negotiate on further distances.
We feel these bulls turned out nicely. Jess and I appreciate your support and we look forward to producing genetics to better your herd! Please call George at 406-853-3523 for any questions.

Introducing 125 x 225 Flushmates
A few years ago I decided to take the plunge and do some flushing. I felt I had ran the cows the way I wanted to for long enough to see which genetics looked like they were working the best for me and wanted to take advantage of the aging dams while I could. So this is how we have Huey, Dewie, and Louie in our sale! Three full brothers and if you don’t mind a little white, they are great looking bulls! One would be staying at our place, but we already have too many females related to them. We will be posting their actual data off the recipient cows and also the data of their full brother from last year’s sale, who was bred the same way as the flush mates, but raised by the dam. This is the data that should more accurately portray the performance of these bulls.
