J Bar Angus
Mark A. Janak
Hay cuttings are done every 28 days rain permitting. Our cattle go through the winter with hay and mineral, therefore we aim for moderate sized easy fleshing cattle. Cattle out in the pasture cannot expect to have a feed bucket present.
We believe that the carcass data is an increasingly important part of the beef business and is a must for the future of the beef industry. In the year 2000 we started ultrasounding our Angus cattle and are continuing to do so. We participate fully in the AHIR program, and use the results in our breeding program. We use sound herd health practices.
AI Work is at the heart of our
breeding program. We feel this is the quickest way to improve genetics. All
heifers are AI'd annually with a select few mature cows.
We currently have 1500 acres divided into 12 different pastures using rotational grazing methods. We run 400 registered black Angus cows that are both AI and natural bred with registered Black Angus herd bulls. We run 50 registered black Angus cows that we breed to registered Gray Brahman bulls to produce the Golden Certified replacement F1 Brangus female. Calves are born annually September thru January-Fall calves and January thru March- Spring calves.EditRegion1
