We have been building our herd over the past ten years and are now able to offer Cows for beef and milk, heifers and proven bulls for sale. Our strong preference is to spend some time with potential customers out on the pasture figuring out what is best for their needs.
Beef Cattle - This is the core of our business. We focus our breeding program on temperament and udder quality. At any given time we have cows, heifers or calves available. Some can be sold confirmed bred. Our beef cows are generally dehorned.
Steers - Depending on the year, we may have excess steer inventory
Milk Cows - We train a few milk cows per year which are selected based on temperament and udder quality. We begin the training process with a first calf heifer. They will eventually come to call and be comfortable being milked while eating out of a feed pan.
Bulls - We manage two herds each with their own bull. Noble, our senior herd sire, is the cornerstone of our breeding program. His offspring are rotated to a jr. herd sire. We rotate our jr. herd sires from time to time. These proven bulls are then available for purchase.
Buckthorn ND Trace - Trace, born 1/12/22, is long legged bull out of Noble (#045176) and Dixie (#046420). Will be a beefy powerhouse like his sire. Handles well. $2500
