2016 Benfield Angus Video Preview

This marks the 20th year Benfield Angus and White Ridge Angus have worked together to compile a powerful group of impressive future Angus herdsires. Sale Herdsires The sale offering includes sons of the sires produced in our programs: Benfield Reality 6211, WRA Cedar Run A7, WRA Whitley Z10, and Mystic Hill Mack 2181. These bulls are deep, stout and heavy muscled and are the product of outcorss genetics with growth and maternal value.

We believe that the most profitable commercial producers wisely seek genetics that fit their environment and require a minimum of inputs. That is the continued focus of our breeding programs and a philosophy we have faithfully executed for over 35 years. Our herds thrive on grass and grass hay. Calves are not creep fed to protect the value of maternal records.

Selecting cattle is more than just reading the numbers. In our quest for balanced trait cattle, we keep pressure on the necessary production traits of fertility, longevity, udder quality, disposition, structural soundness, production efficiency and fleshing ability.
