Schurrtop Ranch 12-4-20

W elcome to our annual fall coming two year old bull sale. We are offering our younger March and April born bulls that are specifically held for this sale. They are the deepest quality set we have ever offered. More proven efficient genetics with cow herd building traits to produce more with less. Efficiency equals more cows on less acres and progeny that do the same or more while consuming less inputs. It’s a really simple recipe for adding profit to your operation. Now and into the future, payweight, quality and efficiency are more important than ever. We are extensively testing these genetics in the real world through progeny testing from the feedyard, cowherd and kill data. Please keep in mind that EPDs are designed to be a measure of difference. The most important way of measuring the value of genetics is net return. These bulls are bred that way for generations and will sire market topping progeny and females that will pay their own way. If you have any questions, need more information, or just want to talk about the cattle business, feel free to call or email us anytime.

EXPLANATION OF RATINGS ON THE BULLS SELLING CE = Calving Ease - Based on birth weight, birth EPD, 3 generations of pedigree and physical traits of the actual bull 3 = Use on Cows 4 = Use on Larger Framed Heifers and Cows 5 = Use on All Heifers and Cows DISP = Disposition - Every bull in this sale is very acceptably tame. However we scored the difference when in a small 12x12 pen by themselves with people in each corner. 5 is the tamest and 4 is very acceptable for most producers. FRAME = The difference in visual frame score based on projected mature hip height within our herd. 5 indicates the bigger framed bulls, 4 average, and 3 indicates less than average frame within our herd.
