We believe that great bulls come from great cows and we’re proud of the maternal power of our cowherd. We see our maternal base as the factory that drives our operation. Likewise, our culling process can be summed up in two word: continuous & unforgiving. We start phenotypically: less than ideal utters, feet & legs, dispositions, or mothering abilities are culled and from there, we let the data decide who stays and who goes.
