This year's calf crop is officially weaned and out on development. With great weather, we were able to wean one of the stoutest and most consistent sets of calves we have ever seen.
"Our highest weaning weight bull mashed the scales at 1024 pounds. We had over 50 bulls come in above 800 lbs! We will have many progenies available out of proven no miss sires such as MOUNTAINEER, TRIPLE CROWN, XCEED, HIGHROAD, BROAD RANGE, BIG TIMBER, AVONDALE, and ROOSEVELT. We also have a few new exciting sire groups of calves such as BAREBACK, XCITE, PROPEL, 231A, ECLIPSE, EAGLE, RAINFALL, and BEAST MODE. Without a doubt, this year's sale offering is one of the highest quality groups from top to bottom that has ever been produced.
We are excited to announce that this year's sale offering will be our largest offering to date. We will offer approximately 185 bulls in our annual production sale and 40 bulls private treaty off the farm. They will be available a week after the sale as always on a first come first served basis. On the female side, we will have approximately 110 open heifers and 100 bred females that will be due to calve the first of December.
The growing demand of SimAngus and Simmental cattle has been seen across the country. Last year Superior Livestock reported that Simmental influenced cattle sold the highest of all breeds. We are confident that demand for the RIGHT type of cattle will continue to grow. Our customers can trust that we at Gibbs Farms are focusing on traits that matter to help our customers become more profitable."
