NOTES....

It is our goal to provide you with Purebred and Composite – Continentally Influenced – herd sires that simplify crossbreeding and utilize complementarity, yet maintain heterosis and consistency. “Heterosis and complementarity are powerful forces that combine to produce the total advantage of beef cattle crossbreeding.” Dr. Jim Gosey, retired professor – University of Nebraska.
