Fertility and maternal qualities are the focus on the females in our operation. Our cows, commercial and registered, are expected to breed in a 60 day season. Low birth weight Angus bulls are used as sires for the heifer groups. Pregnancy in our heifers is confirmed using BioPryn blood sampling. Once confirmed bred, heifers continue to develop on grain, pasture, and hay until sometime in the second trimester. At this time, we begin marketing the heifers. In addition to the pregnancy test, all heifers are BVD negative.
