Our Commercial Herd
Merging our farm lives together in 2013, we are proud to bring forward a Hereford/Angus commercial herd. We are working hard to prefect a herd that is maternal, strong boned, easy fleshing and most importantly mindful. A lot of thought has went into the genetics of our herd through the last 3 generations of our family to get us where we are today.
"The future belongs to those of us, still willing to get our hands dirty."
In 2019 we pushed our cows hard, the last group to calve were the heifers. They started in May, we turned the bulls out in June for 60 days. Anything that wasn't bred we shipped. Our philosophy behind that was we knew that the second year of calving is always the hardest for a cow, if we cut our bottom end out there is no reason that each and every one of these cows can't last 15 or more years. 2020 we had bred the herd to create as many bald face calves as possible, when calving was said and done, 84% of the calves had the bald face. Breeding season in 2020 was set up the same, the only difference was we added more bull power and performance to the herd, we could not have been happier. With pastures being on slim growth through the drought we utilized rotational grazing and were able to add an average of 20lb per calf come weaning.
