Raising Commerical Cross-Bred Cattle

Here at The Broken Arrow, we have been raising commercial cross-bred livestock since our youth. Since 1981 almost all of our brood cows are result of select A.I. breeding that is centered around Simmental, Angus, Red Angus, and Polled Hereford cross-breeding.

Our Simmental Influenced Cow Herd

Our Simmental influenced cow herd have several daughters, granddaughters, and great-granddaughters with bloodlines going back to high performance A.I. bulls. A favorite is CSR MR Big-N-Long, who was a long time 5-star trait leader in the breed. Black Mick, who was well known for his black replacement quality sons and daughters. SV Red Charlie and Body Builder, for feedlot steers and replacement females. Also, ER Americana for feedlot performance.  We also use current favorite performance sires with similar traits.

Besides Performance, We Cull On Personality Too!

Our Females are rigidly culled annually for performance, milking ability, fertility and personality. We keep record of all our A.I bulls and females performance using C.H.A.P.S. (Cow Herd Appraisal Performance Software). Since we do our A.I. calving in the late winter, and in the barn. On personality we like to see our stock cows a little bit "human tolerant" during calving. However, we also like to see our cows giving our hard working Red Border Collie stock dogs a little bit of a hard time, as we don't want our cows to ever loose the natural instinct to protect themselves and their calves from predators.

Steers, Bulls, And Replacement Heifers

We raise one or two bulls annually for clean up breeding, the remaining become steers for sale to commercial feedlot. We have a limited number of open commercial Simmental cross heifers available annually in December-January, from A.I. breeding. Available by private treaty only.
