Commercial Black Angus Cattle
 

 


The commercial straight bred black angus cow herd consists of 300+ females. Included in the count is the ranch holdings of Don and Connie, Darby and Sarah, and Connie's parents; Alfred and Josephine Wardberg.

Three generations working together to continue the angus tradition which was established in 1948 by Connie's Grandparents.


Breeding . . . Calving

The cow herd remains to be 100% straightbred black Angus.  The 2016 breeding season marked the seventh season in which we covered approx. one-half the cow herd with Black Simmental bulls ~ all our replacements are selected from the Black Angus sired heifers.   

The sort on the cow herd is done by Mother Nature as per sex of calf.  With a split by the calf's sex, either Black Angus or Black Simmental Herd Sires are turned out with the cow herd for a middle of April calving season. The Angus bulls are raised in our purebred program and the Black Simmental sires are purchased from  Boundary Ranch.
Spring and Summer Management

Depending on spring conditions, winter feeding is continued until the pasture can offer green grass or carry over of last year's growth.  The commercial herd is pasture calved.  Calves are branded, vaccinated and castrated early June. 

Pairs are sorted -  cows with steer calves go to different pasture than those with heifer calves.  Our land base is spread out so weaning the feeder steer calves in the fall, is economically more efficient if the calves are all loaded at the same time and place.  It also allows us to select the breed sires on a random group of cows each year.

The Angus sired calves carry the Canadian Angus Associations CACP (RFID) tags.  Age verification available.
Fall and Winter Management ______

The steer and heifer calves are weaned onto a tubground bunk ration of silage, dryland hay & green feed bales with free-choice dryland hay, salt & mineral.  Booster vaccinations are given.     Bred heifers and the cowherd fall graze the stubble until conditions warrant ther winter ration of baled greenfeed and dryland hay/grass.  Salt and mineral is offered free-choice, year a round.
