As Simple As 1-2-3-4

I was recently asked by a fellow seedstock producer why I placed so much importance on the pedigree (bloodlines) of our bull battery and cowherd.  At the risk of being redundant with regard to the other posting and opinions I have shared on this website, my answer to him was as follows: We believe that producing genetics that will stand the test of time requires selecting and perpetuating bloodlines that have actually stood the test of time.  The discipline to not follow the latest fad, whether it be an EPD, the hottest new bull in the stud catalog, or the […]

2017 Online Auction Bull Sale Preview

In contrast to the previous two years December arrived in NE Montana with snow, wind and below zero temperatures. There will definitely be a “White Christmas” in our neck of the woods as snowfall totals to this point have reached the neighborhood of 18 inches. Looking forward to some spring runoff as our dams and creeks are due for a refill. Looking ahead to our upcoming Online Auction Bull Sale in March, we will be marketing 50 coming 2-year old bulls. The auction will again be conducted by Edje Auctions. The bulls were taken off grass and put on feed […]

From Spring to Summer

Our last calf of the season was born last week, which can only mean that spring is quickly turning into summer.  After winter brought very little snow and March and April even less rain, we’ve been fortunate to get some good moisture over the last three weeks–the grass has taken off just in time for the cows and calves to be turned out to pasture before breeding season starts. Below are some pictures of our herd.  The green grass in the background is an answer to prayers. We hope that your calving seasons were smooth, your calves are growing well, […]
