This marks the 22nd year Benfield Angus and White Ridge Angus have compiled a powerful group of impressive future Angus herdsires. We believe that the most profitable commercial producers seek genetics that fit their environment and require a minimum of inputs. 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. Our herds thrive on grass and grass hay.
