Herd Sires

Each year we sample some of each of the breeds proven Sires through the use of AI.  We also use many of our own young bulls for cleanup.  This allows us to bring in some outside blood and provide some diversity to our pedigrees and at the same time keep our genetics consistent in type.  Below are a few of the most influential Sires in use.
