Our females are known for their docile temperaments, fleshing ability, ability to rebreed and calve with no assistance, have solid feet and sound udders and must raise a marketable calf every year. Our superior females have survived and thrived under our very rigid culling process and diverse ranch environments.
Our sire selection is based on pedigree, phenotype and genomics and real data. Our sires must come from proven animals. Our breeding program is focused on stacking proven sires of sires on proven dams of dams to achieve consistent results. Phenotype traits we select for are correctness of feet and legs, muscle thickness and masculinity.
We use genetic prediction (EPDs), one of the most powerful tools in the hands of the beef cattle producer. The concept of an EPD is very easy to understand because it is truly the expected progeny difference in performance. EPD’s are more valuable than individual performance records, within herd ratios or performance tests because all of these pieces of information are taken into consideration in calculating an EPD. Donors and herd bulls offered as semen interest require GGP HD-150K testing for more extensive data and even higher accuracy.
We know that Proven Dams crossed with Proven Sires brings Proven results and these are the requirements of a Power Source® Elite Bull. “Power Source® is your One Source to Power Up your Genetics” ™.
