As you study the pedigrees in our program, you will find that the majority of our females offer multiple generations of the breed’s most proven AI sires. These pedigrees also offer genetic uniformity, which helps in providing stout bulls that will transmit that uniformity to their progeny. All of the sires we use and many of those found in our foundation genetics represent cattle that possess what we believe to be the most important economic traits:
- Calving Ease
- Elite Growth
- Superior Carcass Merit
- Unmatched Maternal Traits
- Ultimate Structure and phenotype
