We have 4 fall yearling bulls for sale that will be ready to breed cows in November . The two Balancers are half brothers and nearly “peas-in-a-pod”. Their EPDs are very similar and both being over 50% Gelbvieh, they are perfect for some high % Angus cows to get a tremendous hybrid vigor kick. The two Angus bulls are both calving ease bulls that should be used on heifers. Calves will come easily make calving season a breeze. Click on the “For Sale” tab for more details.

I have worked with beef producers as a herd health veterinarian for over 30 years and these producers have taught me what is important to them. Our cattle are bred with these goals in mind.

   – Calving ease                                    – Calf vigor at birth

   – Excellent disposition                     – Plenty of growth

   – Moderate milk                               – Moderate frame   

   – Fleshing ability                              – Superior maternal traits   

   – Tremendous carcass                                                                 

In my “day job” I see numerous “problem” cattle. I do not want any of these problems with my own cattle.
