Acquired: Bred animal myself
Posted Jan 28, 2015
I grew up on a farm/ranch where my parents raised Angus cattle. Just last year, my family and I returned to be a part of my parents' operation. I have grown up working with cattle and have always enjoyed it.
It has been our goal to breed and grow cattle that are very calm and handle easily. We do this by choosing good genetics, using artificial insemination, sorting frequently, and selling cattle that do not mesh well with our operation. Angus cows are very hardy animals. They handle the extreme temperatures we have in the Midwest, while producing and raising healthy calves. We generally birth, grow, wean, and then sell our calves when they are about a year old; repeating the process the next year.
Although I have not worked with other breeds very much, I can say that Angus cattle work just perfectly in our operation!
