Bulls

Spring Creek Ranch

We started producing a portion of our bull needs in 2005 when we purchased a set of Angus cows that had the genetics to be efficient and produce in the short grass regions of Texas and Montana. Later, we purchased additional cows from the same source, and these have been the base for our seed stock production model: moderate cows with balanced EPD’s that can produce in our ranching environments.

We introduced the Akaushi breed, which were imported from Japan, into the breeding program in 2009 because of its high carcass merits. These cattle have the ability to grade Prime and High Choice at levels above other breeds, and command a premium as feeders and harvest animals. Since purchasing these genetics we have worked to enhance the performance and phenotypic appeal of these cattle while maintaining the carcass characteristics that make them unique.

We had purchased Hereford Bulls from Jack Turner for over 28 years. In 2013, we purchased our registered Hereford genetics from Jack, and have worked to stay true to his practices.
