We are developing a program that emphasizes slow, natural development and focuses on maternal, moderate, and easy fleshing traits. Replacement heifers are chosen based on how they breed up in their cycles, size, fleshing ability, and overall visual confirmation. In our environment harder doing cows naturally fall out of the herd.
"A Different Kind of Test"
Our coming two year old bulls are grown slowly and naturally so they maintain condition during breeding season and won’t fall apart on you. They will also breed more cows over their lifetime. These bulls develop through a different kind of “test” or selection process. As yearlings they spend the summer on native Sandhills grass. Three months before the sale they receive 6 pounds of a corn distillers mix alongside pasture and free choice native grass hay. All bulls in the sale have passed breeding soundness tests and are easy fleshing.
