The following sires have been used the the BSG herd for being proven sires of fantastic, efficient cows that excel for Calving Ease, Udder Quality and Fleshing Ability. We have no issue with using hybrid cattle as seedstock; after all, America’s cow is the crossbred female. Folks often focus too much on only maximizing heterosis of the F1 cross, but making composite cattle that carry the benefits of proven genes excite us about the future of Shorthorn-influenced cattle. Each sire has been proven in the Commercial Industry before being sampled at BSG.
