Females in Focus

Like our new farm Facebook page!

It's sale time!!! Please join us Saturday, April 27, 2024 at 1 PM at the farm for an auction of top end genetics. The 60+ lots consists of black, red and blaze-face, purebred Simmental and SimAngus cattle.

2023 was a very difficult year due to the worst drought in memory. But, it's a new year, with new babies, green grass and a fresh start!

Females were not going to be offered this spring. However, the hard decision was made to down-size the spring-calving herd. This is a sad decision for me, but a tremendous opportunity for potential buyers. They are powerhouse mamas with style, balance and performance.

This herd was one of the first in Virginia, with American Simmental Association member number 3645, Holmans Creek Farm. My father and uncle started grading up to purebreds in the early 1970's. In 1976 Dad gave me an orphan heifer calf and I was in high cotton! The first four years she had bull calves, so my herd didn't progress rapidly. Then I was given the opportunity to purchase heifers from those bound for the stockyard. From there, with perseverance, hard work and faith, my herd developed. By the early 1980's Holmans Creek Farm no longer raised registered cattle, but Shenandoah Valley Simmentals did, and I'd found my passion in life.

That's a long story, but it's shared to say that this herd, and especially the females, have been bred for many, many years with a purpose. They're the most correct, easy-keeping, good-natured, functional and trouble-free mamas that I know how to breed.

The bulls are stout, phenotypically correct long yearlings and yearlings with excellent EPDs. These bulls have been raised in Virginia range conditions and have passed a complete breeding soundness examination. Also included in the offering is SVS Freedom for All GUM1, an impressive, mature herdsire.

Videos and the catalog will be on-line soon. Catalogs will be mailed.

Contact me if you have any questions and come see the offering that we're so proud to call "The Keepin' Kind!"

Stay safe and healthy my friends!
