I finally made time to take some Black Heifer photos tonight at dusk. These are easily our best group of heifers developed yet. They are in great condition even inspite of the dryness that has really set our pastures back.
We made the decision not to use clean-up bulls this summer. By choosing to do so, we can guarantee breeding dates and guarantee that every one of these heifers are bred to an elite AI sire. This means that the heifers will ALL calve roughly within a 2 week window, will ALL be bred to SAV Final Answer 0035 (the Reds and Tans are bred to Feddes Big Sky R9) and will all throw high value top-end progeny. The heifers were all pregchecked via ultrasound at 50 days of pregnancy. They will be re-checked prior to leaving the farm to ensure that they are still 100% safe-in-calf.
A package of heifers with these credentials is very rare, especially with the depth of quality. If you come and look at the heifers, I’m not sure that I’ll even have a sales pitch – the heifers will speak for themselves.
325 Blacks – Bred 68 lb BW Black Angus (SAV Final Answer 0035)
75 Black Baldies/Brockles – Bred 68 lb BW Black Angus (SAV Final Answer 0035)
150 Red/Red Baldies/Chars – Bred Red Angus (Feddes Big Sky R9)
Here’s a taste…
