We sell our bulls ‘in their work clothes’.
We currently have a line of bulls for sale – Angus, Fleckvieh, and Fleckvieh/Angus: Autumn drop bulls – rising 15 months; and Spring drop bulls – rising 21 months.
Our bulls have all the genetics of some of the best cattle around.
We don’t supplementary feed our bulls – with the exception of during drought periods.
It is a difficult thing to compare a bull on feed with a bull in his work clothes. There is always the tendency to think the heavier bull on feed will put more growth into his progeny. But this is not necessarily the case. Often it is better feed and not better genetics that’s the difference. The reality is the fed bull will tend to fall away when he leaves the stud property. And it will be the bull in his work clothes that will have better performance, greater fertility and longevity.
