FOR SALE

Cattle, semen and AI certificates are available year round by private treaty. We prefer a relaxed, low pressure approach to marketing, so our customers can take plenty of time to study our program, our cattle and their records.

Semen
Semen and A.I. certificates are available on most of our herd sires for purebred and commercial use. Schu-Lar On Target 22S and EFBeef Foremost U208 are leased to Accelerated Genetics, so their semen is available through Accelerated Genetics representatives. Likewise, semen sale rights on Hyalite Resource 331 have been leased to Select Sires. Reed Cattle Services handles the purebred distribution of semen from our other herd sires. Jim Reed can be reached at (660) 527-3507. Semen for commercial use is also available by contacting us directly. Volume discounts apply.

Bulls
Young bulls are developed in large contemporary groups on a moderate energy ration at the ranch. Once yearling data is collected and the cattle have been ultrasounded and evaluated for breeding soundness, they are individually priced and offered for sale beginning about February 15. Contact us for the exact availability date.

Some bulls are usually carried over for sale as two-year-olds to meet the needs of our commercial customers. These bulls are developed on grass in large pastures to insure soundness, fertility, and that they will work for our customers for many seasons.

We stand behind every bull we sell. Satisfied customers are our goal! Our bulls are bred and fed to last.
We currently have an excellent selection of coming yearling and two-year-old bulls for sale by private treaty. Their average EPDs are 1.2 pounds below breed average for birth weight, 15 pounds above breed average for weaning weight, 25 pounds above breed average for yearling weight, and three pounds above breed average for milk. They are also well above breed average for the carcass traits and the AHA’s economic indexes. Many of these bulls are suitable for use on heifers. There are several excellent herd bull prospects in the group. A list of the 2014 bull calves follows:

Linton Polled Herefords are visually appealing. While show steers and heifers are not a major goal of our breeding program, cattle from our herd have been competitive in the show ring. Contact us about their availability.
