Our herd sires must possess superior performance traits for birth weight, weaning weight gain, and yearling weight, as well as being backed by generations of EPDs that support these traits. All this has to be in a package that also promotes easy fleshing with even temperament.
The strong influence the herd bulls play is in part the reason that, over a period of years, 95 percent of the herd carries their genetic makeup. It is imperative as we change in our herd that we do not lose sight of the overall completeness and usefulness of the animals we are creating. We are proud of the heritage of the bulls that stand behind the cow herd. We feel it is surpassed by no one in the industry. The totalness in their performance, their semen quality, fertility, temperament, and disposition — overall net worth to the beef industry must be unmatched.
We are proud of the fact that all the bulls on this page are used in our program, but more importantly, they all went through our “BUSINESS BULL” mentality. These bulls have done well for other owners and are making a large contribution to the Angus breed and the entire beef industry.
If you have any questions about these upcoming herd sires of ours, please contact us.
