For 50 years, our intensive linebreeding programs have focused on breed purity and genetic integrity by using carefully selected influences from Wye, N-Bar, and Jorgensen programs.  Our genetics ensure problem-free calving seasons and predictable, maternal efficiencies.  Our cattle are extremely sound in both structure and udder quality.

We are operating a highly selective Aberdeen Angus linebreeding program.  We focus on the maternal traits that make the great Angus cow stand out above the rest.  Our cows are low maintenance, well uddered and have mild dispositions.  Also, they have great spring of rib and depth of body with great fleshing ability.  We expect our cows to be low input, to have calving ease, and breed back year after year - therefore having longevity.  The destination being, problem free cattle that adapt to every environment.

"For the advantage of the Angus Beed Producer, we line breed, and in-breed, our cattle at home--- so that "genetic business" would happen here, rather than at your place."

P.S.- We've been doing this since 1965.
