From the beginning, we knew we had to have a goal for our breeding program. What was our vision for the herd? The conclusion we came to is "balance."
Many producers will attempt to chase the latest trend in the industry or single-trait select to achieve a goal in their herd. But usually this comes at the expense of other traits that make up the "balance" or completeness of cattle that allow them to excel. Truly great cattle will have all of the pieces needed to be exceptional. This is how we approach our breeding program. We breed our cows with the intention of producing great females. After all, females are the base of our herd and of every set of bulls that we produce each year. Without great females, Parry Angus would cease to exist.
Because we breed for great females with balance in mind, we also get bulls with a balance of traits. That gives them the flexibility to meet the needs of nearly every producer. We believe the phenotype and genetics behind these cattle gives them the unique ability to not only offer you value-added traits such as carcass merit, but also performance and functional traits such as muscle, growth, fleshing ability, soundness, disposition, and strong maternal characteristics.
