Our Percentage Cattle Program

photo of percentage cows and calves

In recent years we have been raising percentage cattle, bred with a plan, to produce bulls and females with profit potential for commercial producers.

We have used well-known and proven Angus bulls on our Simmental heifers and young cows. This has resulted in the production of a product we liked and found to be very marketable to the beef industry. We intend to continue producing these high quality percentage cattle as part of our breeding program using the same strong criteria as used in the purebred program.
