Its a Great time to get your Braunvieh Semen orders in for fall breeding, check out our Herd Sires to make your selection.  We will arrange for shipping on all sales.

If you want to bolster your females and cash in on Hybrid Vigor, contact me about helping you add some Braunvieh Genetics.


Recent Meat Animal Reseach Data, once again, objectively shows Braunvieh to be the best option for moderating frame, adding milk, and lowering intake.  Combine this with adding rib eye per hundred weight and marbling, Braunvieh is the best cross breeding choice for making the best females.

We like to raise and sell bulls.

But our focus is to develop and maintain functional productive cows and put high quality beef into our branded beef program. By taking our primary focus off raising bulls, and putting it into maternal and carcass, we have found we raise better bulls. 

Our cows must have good dispositions, udders, and feet.  They have to breed back and have calves on their own.  Our carcasses must have pounds, red meat yield, and eat well.

Our bull calves, which are full sibs to our replacement females and branded beef steers, by default have all the value added traits as their heifer and steer sibs. 

And when we send our bulls to test at Green Springs Bull Test, they must meet criteria for Feed Efficiency, Average Daily Gain, Marbling, and Ribeye, and then we really have something to offer our Bull customers!

If you have similar goals as us:

  • Calving Ease
  • Lifetime Function /Performance
  • Quality Beef
  • Stout Braunvieh Look
    then you will like buying our bulls.
