First Annual Performance in the Pasture Private Treaty Bull Sale Selling 25 Bulls 14-24 Months of Age Sale Day Phones: 573-808-0624 or 573-694-1622 Welcome Cattlemen, Welcome to the first annual “Performance in the Pasture” Private Treaty Bull Sale. My goal is to produce uniform, sound cattle that are efficient and gain on a forage-based diet. I strive to raise high volume, practical cattle that are: sound on their feet and legs, maintain adequate muscle shape, remain modern in their size, and chart an above average scrotal circumference.
These bulls have earned their way to this event. They hold EPD’s that are in the top percentiles for the breed, and at the same time are phenotypically what we are looking for today. There are several calving ease bulls available in the offering, but I do not recommend them for use on cows. I feel that using a bull with an ultra-low birth weight gives up too many pounds at weaning. The experience of growing up on a commercial cow-calf operation and feeding out the cattle we raise with the feed available is why moderate framed, high volume cattle are so important to me. The drought conditions and high corn prices have proven that these cattle are profitable. They convert feed to pounds more efficiently. My bulls were developed on a high roughage diet therefore giving up the high “corn fed” yearling weights. This increases the longevity of the cattle; from their feet and legs to their fertility. Performance is more than just pounds. We have a quality set of bulls available for the commercial cattleman that will work well in many conditions allowing you to optimize your feed, land and labor. Thank you for your interest in my cattle.
