We set out in the purebred business in 1975. Starting with six Charolais cows, we have been selecting, breeding, sorting, and selling only the best to our customers each year. Since 1995, we have held our annual Performance and Quality Bull Sale at Kist Livestock in Mandan, North Dakota.
Our breeding program has been built on years of selecting for calving ease, disposition, performance, and milk. We select breeding stock for our herd that excel in all traits, and by doing this we have been able to stack the calving ease and performance in each successive generation. All of our cattle are performance tested through either the American International Charolais Association or the American Angus Association.
We utilize Artificial Insemination (AI) and Embryo Transfer (ET) work extensively to move our herd forward each year. In recent years, we have been conducting a 100 percent AI program on our herd for the first 30 days of the breeding season. This huge undertaking offers our bull sale customers a selection of the best and most up-to-date genetics available.
