It is with great excitement that we present to you our Breeder Link website. We appreciate you taking the time to stop by and take a look. We are proud of the offering of sires and feel like they are a great representation of many of the top breeders across the country.
For many years our industry has paid a lot of attention to the terminal traits that add to the bottom line of those feeding cattle and processing cattle. We have made great strides in that area and we applaud everyone involved for their efforts but it seems to us that many times the cow/calf producers end up with the short end of the stick. Their profitability is highly tied to the fertility and longevity of the mother cow. Because of the antagonistic relationship in many cases between the terminal traits and the maternal traits this has not always been positive for the Cow/Calf guys.
Our goal here at Breeder Link is to Leverage the expertise and experience of many of the top breeders across the country to provide a set of bulls that have been proven in large contemporary groups under real world conditions. Most of these bulls come from proven cows that have been the backbone of these programs. We are both in the cattle business and have cows of our own. With our many years in A.I., we have seen many bulls come and go, some of which have been short lived. We want to change that. In our sire selection we try to start with the cow family, then evaluate the phenotype and structure of the individual and then we look at the numbers. We are certainly not anti EPD but find that most of the great bulls through the years are bulls that are balanced across the board and are not extreme in any single trait.
We are honored and humbled by the positive response we have received from the bull owners and breeders we are working with. We have great respect for them and what they have accomplished in their individual programs. They may all have a slightly different focus but core to all of them is the mother cow.
As this business continues to develop, we want you to know that we are here for you. Please call us anytime and we will do our best to answer questions or take care of any needs you might have. Again, we thank you for taking the time to view the website and would love to visit with you in person.
