Check out our line up for Pleasant Dawn's upcoming 20th Annual Bull Sale
March 19, 2022
Profitably is always #1, and it starts with calving ease. Based on our birth weights and EPDs, they are breed leaders. We find that early gestation is so important and heritable. A small calf that goes full term gestation is usually a smaller calf in the fall; but a smaller calf, from early gestation, can give top performance. That is one way we have achieved below average birth weights, with above average performance, and the EPDs to correlate the stats.
The bottom line is beef performance and pounds pay our customers and our bills. Length of spine is the next easiest way to add pounds without affecting calving ease, but one of the hardest features to get! Our bulls have thick tops with muscle in their quarter. Longevity is a must in our program, with many females and bulls lasting over a decade by having good feet and legs, to great fertility. Having great mothers is our foundation and they must calve on their own and have good feet and udders, with fertility. Check out our EPDs and you’ll find most are below average for birth and above average for performance and maternal traits.
These bulls are backed by generations of seed stock with these traits to give the most consistent, profitable product. We always enjoy your phone calls or messages, so please feel free to contact us anytime, or stop by to check the bulls out in the pen.
Every seed stock selection is used with a vision of confidence in what we hope for and assurance of what we do not see yet.
