Welcome To Our Site!
Thanks for stopping by.
Our sixth production sale, held November 23, 2014 was the best yet, with cattle going to eleven states stretching from Pennsylvania to Alabama to South Dakota and many points between. It’s always a great weekend spent working with cattle, but it’s even better visiting with perspective buyers, long-time customers, and friends, old and new, and to top it all off, I get to talk “cow”. It simply doesn’t get any better than that. And we’d like to extend a sincere “thank you” to those who believe in our program and have purchased cattle that excel in states near and far. It’s extremely rewarding to see the fruits of our labor becoming top producers in well-respected herds across the country. And, what a great time to be in the cattle business!
That said, it’s sale time again!!! We’d like to cordially invite you to attend our Shenandoah’s Shining Stars sale, Saturday, November 21, 2015 at 1:00 pm. Even though we have a late sale date, take a look at the offerings before you make your next herdsire purchase. This is our seventh production sale and undoubtedly the best set of elite Simmental genetics offered yet. We’ll be offering an exceptional set of 60+ breeding-age bulls as well as fancy open heifers, bred females, and high maternal pairs.
We strive to raise versatile, highly functional cattle that thrive in real-world environments. Cattle are range-raised and are bred to travel rough terrain, efficiently convert grass to meat, and withstand wide weather extremes routinely experienced in these mountains. With the changing seasons we endure heavy snowfall, hurricane rains, drought, windchills far below zero, as well as temperatures in excess of 100 degrees with high humidity. This wide range of weather makes these cattle hardy.
It’s taken 39 years of rigid selection to produce the cattle in this offering. They have rock-solid genetics, breed-leading performance, tremendous longevity, and outstanding phenotype with consistency and style. They are the result of stacking multi-generations of breed greats, including our own bloodlines. Herdsires from our bloodlines are selected using the same rigid criteria as the studs we choose to use for artificial insemination. Whether you’re a purebred breeder, commercial cow-calf producer, or want to win the show ring, there’s something here for you.
We are extremely proud to present his offering and we’re committed to sharing our top genetics. 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. And as a way of sharing some of our rich history with you, our video auction is held in a fully-restored 1860’s barn.
Please take a minute to browse through these pages and enjoy an arm-chair tour of this Century farm. Check back soon to view our video farm tour which will showcase our operation. Sale cattle videos should be on-line in October. Thanks for your interest in our program. Feel free to call or drop in for an old-time Southern welcome.
