Perfect Blend of Genetics Designed for Profit$
Our breeding program has not been around forever, however for 35+ years we have worked diligently to develop Angus & Simmental genetics that work in harmony with one another to create the "Perfect Blend of Genetics" available. Long before the term SimAngus was coined, we realized the benefits of blending two of the industries most powerful breeds into one genetic package. Today you can capitalize on our committed efforts to move your cow herd into the future. Countless sources point to the importance of crossbred females in the cow herd, and the cross between Angus and Simmental is the best. Market signals continue to suggest the need for crossbred feeder cattle that can grow efficiently and yield high quality carcasses, will become more and more valuable down the road.
