Connealy Angus

Adding value with a commitment to excellence

Success is a moving target. But you don’t stay in the cattle business for more than 50 years without achieving some success, or as the Connealy’s put it – making your customers more profitable. Often, those starting out wonder what the recipe looks like and if it can be duplicated. For the Connealys it’s not about a formula, rather, a commitment to doing certain things a certain way and not wavering or taking shortcuts. At Connealy Angus, long-term focus on leading genetics and maternal function has built a reputable cowherd. “I don’t know that we have any secrets,” Jerry Connealy says. “We try to balance what we are doing. We firmly believe the cowherd makes the difference and focusing on them will deliver results in all segments, like the bulls.” BUILDING A FOUNDATION

Located in the Nebraska Sandhills near Whitman, Connealy Angus started in 1961 with Marty and Donnie Connealy’s purchase of 40 registered Angus cows. The modest beginning

would be the foundation for one of the preeminent programs in the U.S. When the first Angus females “We also focus on were purchased Marty worked as an economic traits as ABS Representative, mostly breeding well as pay strict dairy cows. Using his experience as an artificial insemination (AI) technician, attention to carcass Marty bred the first cows expanding traits, things that the herd and ranch from there. To date, affect our customers’ Connealy Angus still uses 100 percent AI on all the cows and heifers. bottom line too. Our “We AI and don’t turnout cleanup goal is to put as bulls because of the value in AI calves much pressure on compared to natural service calves to our buyers,” Jerry says. those traits without After completing their degrees at the sacrificing.” University of Nebraska in 1981, Jerry and his wife Sharon returned to the ranch. The herd was up to about 250 cows then, Jerry says. And in 2005, Jed and his wife Kara also returned to the built the cowherd using the industry’s ranch upon completion of degrees at best available genetics and focusing on the University of Nebraska. the females. Today, they carry on the legacy with “Our target changes over time with about 2,000 registered Angus females. technology advancements,” Jerry says. Taking the herd from 40 to 2,000 not “For the most part we are trying to only required dedication, but a plan select for light birth weight, explosive and understanding of genetics. As growth to weaning and up on to students of AI, the Connealys have yearling, but maintain a mature size that won’t be too big, and AI helps us focus on those targets.” In their area of the Sandhills, it can take 17 to 20 acres per cow-calf unit, so cow size is important, he adds. As the average mature size of the cowherd has grown in recent years, they are mindful yearling weight and mature size is correlated. “We do want high yearling (weight) but also want to have as an efficient cow

ingredient 15 years after entering our lineup. He, along with Connealy bulls like COUNSELOR, IMPRESSION and FINAL PRODUCT excel for \$W Index, and have also proven themselves as maternal leaders through the commercially oriented Sire Alliance testing program.” By being a “stickler” on economic traits, docility, maternal function, growth and carcass, they have built demand and proven genetics that go beyond just the Connealy herd prefix. Take a look through a sire directory and it’s not hard to see Connealy influence in several pedigrees. For the family though, bulls in the directory add recognition and validation, Jerry says, but it’s more about doing what they do best. “We sell 100 percent of every bull,” he says. “We ought to be doing what we’re passionate about and let somebody else market semen. Its not so much about sale averages, but feeling good where you’re at and putting a good product in front of buyers.” And Connealy customers recognize the excellence, returning each March to the bull sale looking for the next profit generator. The Connealys admit they’re humbled by the success, but they’re not satisfied yet, saying each calf crop is a chance to improve consistency and quality from where they are now. Looking ahead, the Connealys plan to continue adding value by focusing on what makes their customer’s more money year after year.
