won’t have any red Gelbviehs for sale this year or next. But look for us to have our red genetics ready for the spring of 2019.

In 2016, I had to disperse that herd for health reasons. I’m happy to say the doctors have been successful and are getting me back in good shape.

I want to thank all the folks who purchased my genetics. And I have really enjoyed hearing from them with updates and pictures on how the cattle are doing for them.

With my doctors’ and wife’s permission, I’m beginning the fun process of rebuilding my herd. I

SMALL HERD

POWERFUL GENETICS


President’s Welcome

Dear Fellow Cattle Producers, On behalf of the Heart of America Gelbvieh Association I would like to welcome you to our 2017 Breeders Directory. The breeders in this directory are some of the top Gelbvieh and Balancer producers in the country! Please contact any of the breeders listed to find the bulls and heifers that best fit your needs. The cattle industry is making great leaps each year at becoming more productive. Each year the cattlemen want lower birth weights and higher weaning weights. All the while not hurting the checkbook and remaining profitable. I am here to tell you that the Gelbvieh and Balancer bulls and females are on the leading edge of all of these accolades that a cattleman reaches for. Gelbvieh and Balancer cattle have strengths in fertility, milking ability, docility, growth and muscle. Gelbvieh and Balancer cattle work especially well in crossbreeding programs, complementing commercial black and red cowherds, as well as herds with Brahman influence. Gelbvieh and Balancer cattle are truly “the Continental Breed of Choice.” The HAGA membership is proud to offer this breeders directory. Please refer to the directory to identify Gelbvieh and Balancer producers, when in need of your next herd bull or females. Also, make plans to attend the HAGA Show-Me Plus Gelbvieh & Balancer Sale this fall. For more information, contact a board member, an individual breeder or visit our website at: www.HeartofAmericaGelbvieh.com Sincerely, Austin Rash
