When we built our group of foundation females we had the rare opportunity to acquire proven genetics from long standing strong programs. This gave us the ability to purchase top quality proven females that would normally not be offered. We were looking to have powerfully made females that will produce powerful herd bulls that are masculine, big testicles, tremendous depth of rib and superb capacity. Along with the ability to produce replacement females that are productive with strong maternal instincts, great udders and longevity.
