A rigorous culling program maintains cows with good teats and udder, feet and legs, disposition, maternal, and longevity. Cattle are retained in the herd that are structurally correct with moderate size and fleshability, selected for performance and eye-appeal. First-calf heifers start calving mid-March. The heifers are AI’ed and then cleaned-up with proven low birthweight bulls for 30 days. The registered and commercial cows start calving in April for 45-50 days. Cows are not kept if they do not bring in a calf every year. Steer calves gain an average of three pounds per day on the cow and grass.
