Black Angus X Simmental
Our Black Angus X Simmental bulls are produced using the best of lower set black and black blaze face Simmental bulls on purebred Black Angus cows. They are black on both sides so will be true to black color. This venture was very successful last year and we have increased our numbers modestly this year and still kept the quality very high. We offer March-April yearlings. We used the same principles in this program that we have in all our other lines. We demand moderate framed cattle with depth of body and stress structural soundness. As with the rest of the sale cattle, no feet have been trimmed, the kill floor does that for us. Gabriel and Candace Lavoie co-operate on this project with us and do a very good job. Their herd is an impressive one that produces big, robust calves every year and in volume. It's great to see two young people like Gabriel and Candace that have this much enthusiasm for agriculture, comined with a real desire to make agriculture work for their future. Feedback on these bulls from previous years is real positive. Use them with confidence on your Angus, Hereford and exotic base cows to add performace with that extra Simmental muscle, hair and quarters, yet not sacrificing the British convenience.
We continue to work closely with the Marin family of Ceylon, Saskatchewan on their co-operator herd to produce Simmental bulls that buck the trend. You will see these bulls offered as two year olds every year - a rarity in today's Simmental industry. These bulls are raised gently and backgrounded to develop (not fatten) in order to offer them as sound bulls that will simply get the job done and breed your cows. We have done away with the structural and overfeeding issues that are so prevalent when trying to source a Simmental bull elsewhere. Phenotypic duplicates to all the other breeds on offer with the Simmental influence to give you those extra pounds at weaning through hybrid vigor.
