Herd Sires

Herd Sires

These fellas are a powerful, herd-moving asset.  Our herd bulls are foragers, just as the cowherd.  They are culled on fleshing ability, structural soundness, disposition and breeding soundness. The herd bulls are shown here in mid-October trailing to their winter pasture/cornstalks.

Of course, we all know that keeping bulls around isn’t without it’s challenges as they establish pecking order and “act like bulls.”  We’ve had some fun with this photo.  Our two favorite captions are,

1) There’s one in every group of bulls, or 2)You’re not you when you’re hungry.
