A few illustrations of our breeding program

Herd bulls, breeding heifers, foundation females, a sample of our program over the years is shown below.

While we have evolved in our search to produce subjects best suited for current markets, we still appreciate the many genetic contributions added to our program since we started.

A superior bull will improve the herd, but a good cow will always produce a good calf, even when the bull used that year is not up to par.

Our goal is to combine the maternal strengths of our fondation cows with the paternal performances of top sires to produce outstanding calfs each and every time.
