We in the cattle breeding business are entering an exciting phase. We have the tools with sire summaries, EPDS, AI, Ultrasound, etc to dramatically change our cattle herds. We at Larson Angus are conscious of the need to produce what the consumer wants but we don't chase carcass traits to the extent that we sacrifice the production traits that are vital to any commercial cattle person.
We strive to produce bulls that will sire moderate birth weight cattle that grow. Those bulls have to also sire heifers that will grow into wide, deep bodied cows that can go into a northern Iowa cornfield in the middle of winter and work. We are firmly convinced that the cow of the future will be a cow that does not require a lot of extra management.
We put a lot of emphasis on the dams of any potential AI or natural service sire.Our cows must have good production records, calve on time, and have good functional type traits especially a good udder. The calves are not creep fed as we want to know that if we get a good calf it is not because the calf lived in the creep feeder.
We love our customers, so feel free to visit but would appreciate a call in advance to ensure we are home. If you would like to be included on our periodic newsletters just send us your address information at Larsonj@evertek.net.
