Balanced Traits ~ Predictability ~ Profitability

10-25-2019 Carcass results are here!

  • We are beyond excited about our carcass results in 2019! On 27 head fed out at Lincoln County Feedyard in Nebraska we had 18% Prime, 82% Choice, and 0% Selects. Our Yield grade average for the whole group was very good at 3.0. Only 1 head out of 27 went YG 4! These are the results we have been working towards and only hope to continue to improve upon them. These results came from the lowest $Profit Indexed calves from our 2018 calf crop. The top calves went on to be seedstock bulls at Leachman Cattle of Colorado, sold as bred heifers, and retained as bred heifers for us. We will continue to balance all traits, maternal first, while attempting to continue to improve our carcass traits.

A legend is gone...

We are sad to announce that A&T Renegade 124 was put down. He was almost 7 years old and the only thing wrong with him was he did too many things right. He improved literally every single trait in everything we bred him too. Whether it was Shorthorn or SimAngus cross genetics he took them and improved them. In one generation he turned around every trait in a cow from udder quality to mature weight to calf vigor to mothering ability. He was also a double carrier of the PSR(Phenotype Salmonella Resistance) gene discovered at Iowa State University. As the rest of the breed chased growth and ribeye Renegade created the optimal type of Shorthorn female. The female you would want to grow a herd around. The decision to put down this bull was tough but we have to move on. Thankfully we move on with a lot of influence from this great bull that are crossing extremely well with Stabilizer genetics. His Leachman $Profit index score continues to rise with time and is currently over $16,000 with a $Ranch of $124. A huge feat for a Purebred Shorthorn bull...

SOLD! We will have a few bred cows available for sale this fall 2023 after weaning. Most all of our bulls are going to Leachmans to be sold as Leachman bulls and our heifers are either being retained or sold for premiums to established customers. Thanks!
