About Us

Our Program

Thank you for taking an interest in our bulls. 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. 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.

 

Bull Development

Between the spring of ’22 when these bulls were born and the winter of ’22-’23, it’s safe to say this calf crop has seen a lot of winter! Their gains were not as good as we have had in the past selections, probably due to the weather but they matured to be some nice 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 lbs of an alfalfa based pellet and approximately 16 lbs of processed hay daily. Then when we brought them home this fall they once more got alfalfa pellets and hay.

Embryo Bulls

 Again we have two embryo bulls in the '24 sale, however they are not flush mates like last years were. We’ve included the actual data off the recip cow. More notes on them listed below.

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 will offer free delivery for up to 250 miles.

We feel these bulls turned out nicely. Jess and I appreciate your support and we look forward to producing genetics to better your herd!
