For three generations our family has pioneered the purebred business in Idaho. Starting with Herefords and now with Angus and Red Angus genetics, every day is spent improving our herd in their natural environment. As a registered seedstock operation, we are dedicated to producing quality, performance cattle based on multi-trait selection.
Our cattle have evolved from an intense AI program that focuses on proven genetics. We don’t just multiply cattle, we selectively mate large groups of half and three-quarter sisters to hand-selected sires with proven characteristics such as Muscle, Depth of Body, Structure, Maternal, Udder Quality, Fertility, and Fleshing Ability. Add to that Performance, EPD Profiles and Feed Efficiency, and you’ll find we strive to produce fault free cattle for our customers.
Knowing how well our cattle convert feed is an essential piece of the puzzle. For the past 5 years we have had the opportunity to send our fall bulls to a feed efficiency trial, which utilizes the Grow Safe System to collect data including average daily gain, residual feed intake, and feed conversion. This information is not only used to improve our own herd but offered to our customers, allowing them to improve their cow herd and bottom line.
As leaders in the purebred industry, we are committed to producing the best cattle in the breed, and are dedicated to quality customer service. It would be our pleasure to show you our operation. Visitors are always welcome!
