BREEDING STOCK FOR SALE

HOMEHERD SIRESTHE COWSBREEDING STOCK FOR SALE * EMBRYOS & SEMENBLONDE d'AQUITAINE CATTLELINKSCONTACT

BULLS

Our bulls are available for private treaty purchase at the farm. Bulls are sold on a first come-fist served basis. 

Although we calve in May, many of our bulls in recent years have been sold to breed as yearlings.
It seems more cattleman are starting to calve in more hospitable weather. Our bulls are ready to breed in June just in time for grass, or better yet turned out in July/August when they are a little more mature. We still market a few two year old bulls, including young bulls we used in our own herd.

A bit about the management of the bulls. We don't have to play the feeding game (ie: fat = good) and burn out young bulls. The bulls spend their first winter on free choice hay and about 3/4 of a percent of bodyweight of a pelleted ration. This pellet allows us to offset any protein deficiencies in the hay as well as ensure the bulls are getting adequate vitamins and minerals while growing them out. The bulls are then put on grass and/or hay from the end of April until late November (without any grain or pellets). For their second winter they are fed free choice hay and half a percent of bodyweight of the pellet ration.
FEMALES

Every fall we have a group of bred heifers and cows for sale by Private Treaty. We need to do this in order to make room for heifers from our replacement pen, and to keep our numbers manageable for the resources that we have.

We also live by the motto that everything is for sale. When I was younger I would get mad at my grandfather when he sold my favourites or the best, and he would say to me "We raise them to sell them." He never balked at selling his best if the situation or price was right, and neither do we.

Also check the Frozen Genetics section for Red Angus semen and embryos that are available.
