For the last 30 years, we have developed cattle that are proven to calve on their own, hunt for grass and bring back a 500 – 600 lb calf. Only the most functional cattle remain in the herd to promulgate the desire traits.
The Ranches Bred Heifer Sale began in 2010 due to the market’s demand for top quality commercial black angus bred heifers. Each year, we sell between 300 -500 bred heifers. These commercial black angus heifers are selected from our herd and will be 22 months old and weight 1000 lbs at the day of the sale. They have been range bred to high performing bulls and are sorted for calving dates of February, March, April and May, and sold in small or large lots by gate cut only.
These one-iron bred heifers are born and raised in the harsh elements of the High Desert of Eastern Oregon. We have selected for strong mothering and fertility traits, structural soundness, and high yielding feedlot and carcass performance. From birth until butcher, the offspring of these heifers deliver what the producer and consumer is looking for. A profitable maternal herd increases the margins for any operation’s success.
With the highest regard for integrity, we believe in the traditional way of producing a quality bred heifer with the proper nutrition, low-stress handling and sustainable agriculture practices just the way nature intended.
