We take pride in the management process which shows in our 5 Star rating, for performance recording with BREEDPLAN. We have been objectively recording for over 25 years. All information is recorded via live entry at the cattle yards on HerdMaster software to promote accuracy and efficiency to eliminate any errors due to double handling. This is particularly important with the collection of TSU samples for DNA and Genomics applications.

There is now over two decades of data behind the Triple B product and it’s one of the most comprehensively recorded Brangus herds in the breed and on Brangus Group BreedPlan.

The top 80 bulls are selected and marketed as rising two-year-olds, at our ‘On-Property Sale’ held annually in late September/early October. Accompanying these bulls at auction is a line of purebred commercial heifers.
