Rockingham County Fairgrounds, Harrisonburg, Virginia
Genetics are the Foundation of Efficient Cow Herds
This year marks the 18th Headquarters for Hindquarters Angus Bull Sale. It will be held at the at the Rockingham County Fairgrounds in Harrisonburg, Virginia on Saturday, March 15 at 1:00 PM.
The 2014 sale is highlighted by a powerful and impressive set of ET maternal brothers to the AI sires produced in our programs, Benfield Substance 8506, WRA Vindicator, Benfield Reality 6211 and WRA Walker. These ET bulls are sired by Apex Windy 078, Final Answer, Cedar Ridge and Regis. Numerous other herd sire prospects will sell as well.
As America moves to re-build cow numbers, we know that profitable cow herds are built with maternal genetics and not terminal high $beef genetics. We have never sacrificed maternal efficiency and functional traits in our breeding programs. Our low input programs have produced a group of fertile, moderate framed, easy fleshing bulls with calving ease and true muscle. The kind needed to build cow herds!
