Selected from the pen are 30 - 45 heifers for our personal replacements plus 12 off the top of the F1 Simm/Angus crossbred, which will sell as Bred Heifers in the fall of their yearling year. From the remaining females, a quality cut will be selected for your appraisal and addition to your breeding herd in April.
The Sires <> The Angus and Simmental bulls we select to use in our commercial cow/calf operation represent a balanced trait selection of maternal and performance which produces a constant source of top-quality replacement females and growthy market steers.
Replacement angus heifers from our commercial program have been placed with cow calf producers in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Quebec and Ontario, with quite a number of buyers being repeat.
As well, we would like to recognize the first time buyers. Thank you for your trust in our program. We enjoy seeing our cattle work in other people's herds, and appreciate the confidence and continuing support of our customers.
