ABOUT OUR PROGRAM


Image
Melvin Young joined the Bowling Ranch management team in 2006, and he encouraged us to restart the registered cowherd as a way of producing bulls for our commercial herd. In order to do this, we realized top performing bulls only originate from a strong maternal base. In 2008, we began to invest in foundation female genetics from some of the top seedstock providers within the breed. Our registered Hereford herd is rooted in the following programs: EE Ranches, Mill Creek Ranch, Holden Herefords, Upstream Ranch, Churchill Cattle Co., Jamison Herefords, Curry Herefords, and Lonker Herefords.

We also invest heavily in some of the top frozen genetics in the country, through the use of AI and Embryo Transfer. In addition to heavy AI breeding, our herd bull battery originated from Mill Creek Ranch, Upstream Ranch, Churchill Cattle Co., and Barber Ranch.

Upon seeing the merits of Red Baldies, and Red Angus commercial females, we decided that raising and producing Red Angus bulls and females is the perfect complement to Hereford genetics. Our registered Red Angus herd originated from the Lonker/Brandee dispersal in 2008. Although smaller in numbers, we’ve slowly grown our Red Angus maternal base with the same strict standards we place on our Hereford herd.

Following the trend set by Dan in the late 1990’s, we still maintain a large commercial herd of Red Angus, Hereford, Red Baldies and Black Baldies. Because of this, we strive to produce bulls for our customers with the same level of high performance and requirements we run on our own commercial herd.
