Shenandoah's Shining Stars Sale
November 22, 2014 at 1:00 PM
At the Ranch - Quicksburg, VA


Welcome Folks!

We're glad you stopped by and we hope you enjoy our site.  Browse through the pages and take an arm-chair tour of this Century farm.  But the main attraction is our upcoming production sale!

I’d like to cordially invite you to attend our Shenandoah’s Shining Stars sale, Saturday, November 23, 2013 beginning at 1:00 pm.  This is our fifth production sale and the best set of elite Simmental genetics yet to be offered!  If you've never been to Virginia, come and enjoy its natural beauty and history.  With plenty of sights to see, Civil War museums, scenic vistas, antique shops and caverns to name a few, bring the whole family and make it a weekend getaway.

At SVS we do things a little differently.  We take great pride in our cattle, in being good stewards of the land, and in preserving this historic farm and the old ways of life.  Our video auction is held in an 1860’s barn decorated with old farm implements, tools and antiques.  We also provide a lunch consisting of old-time fares. 

Our cattle are the result of 37 years of breeding practical, performance-oriented, profitable cattle with predictable genetics that thrive in real-world conditions.  Stacking genetics from multi-generations of breed greats has worked exceptionally well for us, so these cattle should work equally well for you.  This is a relatively closed herd where for many years we’ve focused on producing our own type of cattle.  Whether you’re a purebred breeder, commercial cow-calf producer, or want to win in the show ring, there’s something here for you. 

We're excited to offer embryos out of SVS Snickerdoodle US09, the dam of SVS King Pin YU09 who was purchased by Genex, Inc. and Sandy Acres Simmentals of Nebraska in our last sale.  Also, Lawrence Cattle Company of Ohio purchased SVS Starlight WRL7 in our 2010 sale and developed her into an Ohio State Fair Champion.  It’s always great to watch the achievements of “my children”!
