Our cow herd is made up of Black Angus and Hereford crossed cows, and we breed our cows to Black Angus, Hereford, and Charolais bulls. From our annual calf crop, we keep a certain percentage of the heifers, to replenish and expand our cow herd. This practice has led to our raising, from a calf, every female on our ranch. We have found that this breed combination is well suited to our environment. Our cows are not too big and exhibit a strong maternal instinct. Additionally, these breeds have adapted well and handle our winters and our summers well.
