Heifer DevelopmentGenetics are as important to our operation as they are to yours. We continuously are striving to improve our genetic base, and have had the opportunity to share our work with numerous operations over the years. We ask a lot out of our cows, and they have performed beyond expectation. It’s not a novelty to find a 15 year old Wilson Ranch range cow that has to breed up every year in a short window, raise a productive calf, maintain body condition and perform to our requirements. With a large base, we have the opportunity to come in and hand and performance select an elite group of heifers to provide to you.
The 2014 sell heifers originated and were developed on Wilson Ranch. They were born between the end of April and middle of May of 2013 out of high percentage Red Angus cows. They were timed AI'd on May 24 to LSF Night Calver and LSF Saga. A big thanks to Daniel Pravecek of Winner, South Dakota for purchasing these heifers!
Along with heifers, Wilson Ranch has sold private treaty bulls for almost two decades.
