INNOVATIVE BULL SELECTION & GENETIC ENHANCEMENT
Our unwavering philosophy at Broken Heart Ranch is “staying consistent” and selecting for a balanced set of traits in our red angus cattle herd. We prioritize femininity, maternal instinct, structural soundness, and muscle development in our breeding program. Our bulls, weaned in October, have weathered the cold spells and negative wind chills with resilience. All bulls will undergo carcass ultrasound evaluation in late February, and Oahe Vet will palpate and scrotal measure with results available on our website as well as a data performance sheet on sale day. The bulls will not be semen tested due to their younger age, however Broken Heart Ranch stands behind when the time arrives prior to breeding.
Broken Heart Ranch takes immense pride in the significant role our genetics play in highly regarded commercial programs, known for offering top-selling replacement quality females and steers that consistently excel. Your success motivates us to meticulously select and breed cattle that surpass industry standards. The enduring popularity of the Red Angus breed shows no signs of decline, with heifers outselling steers and numerous breed associations favoring Red Angus females for crossbreeding initiatives.
This year, all Broken Heart Ranch offerings are red angus parent verified with GGP testing for enhanced EPDs, ensuring transparency and accuracy in genetic information. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our valued customers. We invite our customers and new interested parties, to engage with us as you navigate herd sire bull selections and genetic improvement. With our guidance and support, together, we can achieve your desired end-product goals while upholding the standards of excellence that define the Broken Heart Ranch Red Angus program.
