This is the time of year that we look forward to presenting you, our customers, the results of Aaron and his team’s efforts towards breeding the most complete line of cattle with the highest quality of genetics for your herd. When developing our program, we focus on three main factors: form, function and balance.
Form: the shape, visual appearance or configuration of an object or thing. As this pertains to our cattle, they should look aesthetically pleasing to the eye in all their physical make up. They should look like good cattle with the right proportions.
Function: the action for which a person or thing in specifically fitted for or for which a thing exists. When looking at the cattle in our program, this means they must perform. Females must have and raise a calf every year in their real-world environment. The bulls must be able to travel over diverse terrains to breed your cattle and be continually successful year after year.
Balance: a condition in which different elements are equal or in the correct proportions. We strive to breed cattle that have balanced traits and stay away from extremes that can only cause problems and difficulties in the end.
When making our breeding decisions, we keep these three fundamentals in mind so the cattle that we produce, will produce for you! This year we will be offering 130 first class females along with 140 top of the line bulls. We will cover all aspects of females: donors, heifer pregs, Spring ETs, Fall ETs, yearlings, show heifers, bred heifers, spring pairs, spring breds, fall calving heifers and fall calvers. Of our 140 bulls, we will start off by selling the 18mo CE bulls, 18mo growth Bulls, 18mo Simmys and finish the lineup with our yearling CE and growth bulls. We are extremely proud of the quality of cattle we have to offer, and truly believe that there will be something for everyone at our Production Sale!
We strive to consistently improve our programs genetics by producing the highest quality progeny possible; in turn, these improvements will implement a sustainable value to your herd by improving genetics that will result in increased production, higher quality performance, and overall improved customer satisfaction. As a top-quality Black Angus seedstock operation, we pride ourselves in providing traits that are beneficial to both our fellow ranchers and our consumers.
We look forward to seeing you on October 18th!
