It’s hard to believe that our first year as Breeder Link will soon be past. It has been a lot of fun so far, not without its struggles, but rewarding all the same. Thanks to all of you who have believed in us and supported our efforts.
2021 will go down as one of the real challenging years in the cattle business for many across the U.S. The drought situation has been wide spread and very severe in many areas. Our hearts go out to all those who have had to make those tough decisions that inevitably come during these difficult times. More than ever, we see the importance of matching our genetics to our environment and making sure we avoid the extremes that we know can get us in trouble when the cattle are pushed to their limits.
As you flip through the Sire Directory, we hope you will see that we strive to have some diversity in terms of EPD profiles. We realize that everyone doesn’t have the same environment or management and so we need some differences in performance levels, milking ability, frame size etc. Although you will see some differences, we hope you will also recognize the common theme of strong Maternal traits, bulls that come from proven cows or with multiple calves from strong maternal lines and breeders that you can trust. We strive for balance and seek for optimums instead of the extremes that you often find in A.I. sires.
We appreciate you taking time to look through our offering and we are especially grateful to all the breeders who have allowed us to market their genetics. We are excited about the new additions we have added this year and hope you will give us a call if you have any questions or if we can be of service in any way.
