Breeding Program

Hard-working, trouble-free cows in any setting. 

That translates into 31 EX and a 107.4 BAA on the last large scale classification. These same cows average 80,000 SCC for 2017 and a rolling herd average of 30,000. Sire selection aims to combine additional strong cow families with in-house favorites like the Roxies and “G”’s in complementary mating. The successful heifer program and high overall herd health means that we have cattle and embryos available at all times.

Thanks to the buyers of Brigeen animals, both consignments and private sales, we look forward to your continued success with them.
