It is our goal to produce seedstock that will produce progeny with low birth weight and tremendous growth potential. Our customers success is very important to us, we know that the most important part of selling seedstock is the guarantee to our customers that you have purchased very high quality cattle that you can depend on moving your cattle operation forward.
We all know it starts with the cows, the maternal side of our operation has a been the focus since we began. We originally purchased 40 bred heifers in 2005. Since then we have grown our herd to over 200 cows. We have also purchased elite heifers and cows from very prestigious herds such as Peterson Angus, Mogck and Sons, Johnson Family Cattle Co and Marda Angus.
A little more on the maternal side, we have focused on retaining females that calve in the first 42 days of the calving season through this practice we have found a direct correlation between granddam, dam and daughter calving intervals. We see it year after year when the dam calves at a 365 day interval the daughter will as well, often times we have granddams, dams and daughters all calving with days of each other. This is exceptionally important to our customers who want uniform calf crops and great fertility in the dams.
We also focus on udder quality and feet and legs because along with fertility they become some of the most important factors in longevity of our females. Also, with having 4 young children that are often along for calving checks and pasture walks, docility is of utmost importance.
