Bull Development


Bull development is something we take very seriously. Developing bulls is more like an art, and it is something that will impact how a bull is going to perform his entire life. We develop our bulls in a way that creates an honest appearance and in similar conditions that they are going to see when out breeding cows. Asking bulls to perform like a feedlot steer and then expecting him to go out and breed his 35 cows is something that is not going to happen. All the bulls are pastured together where they all receive the same treatment. Nothing is sorted off and no special rations or catering is given to poor performing bulls. For if they cannot perform under the same conditions as their contemporaries, they are culled. This allows the bulls to sort themselves out; and the bulls with superior fleshing ability and structural correctness rise to the top.

When they are weaned they are turned out on cover crops and fed a high roughage ration. They get turned out on grass in early spring with lots of room to just “be bulls”. They are pulled off grass in late September or early October and are then culled for not only performance, but for structural correctness and fleshing ability. The bulls that have met are expectations will then be put on a high roughage ration. They will all stay in one big group and once again will all receive the same treatment. Pulling off the poor performing bulls and putting them on better fed might be a good alternative in the short run, but we don't sell “ just bulls”, we sell the kind of bulls that our customers can put their trust in.
