A different kind of Angus, but the right kind for us.
We have chosen to focus on breeding straight Canadian Angus genetics because we have found these cattle to be predictable, consistent in type and kind, and offer balanced performance throughout the supply chain. They have extra length and capacity while keeping all the other great Angus traits that we know and love; they offer great calving ease, desirable maternal traits, longevity and vigor while still being easy to handle. These cows produce a high percentage of calves weaned despite being calved out extensively in early spring conditions and going to range with minimal observation. Calves with these genetics grow well on the cow on range and perform well in feedlots, finishing at 1500-1600lbs with a high percentage grading AAA with a yeild grade Y3 or better. They are low maintenance, sound, hardy cattle that work well at the ranch, in the feedlot and at the packing plant.
Our bulls are sold privately off the ranch each year and we are happy to have people walk through starting in January. If you're interested in our program feel free to give Jason a call!
This year we have 58 bulls for sale, born end of February through March with an unadjusted average weaning weight of 757lbs in early October. Our bulls were all born unassisted and spent the spring and summer on range. Take a look at our sire groups below!
