The Next Step in Cattle Evolution
It is time to rethink the beef industry. There are always new challenges to overcome and great opportunity always lurks in these new challenges. As the economic landscape shifts, traditional businesses must be flexible and able to move with the tidal wave if they are to remain in business, agriculture is no exception. Cattle that were profitable only ten years ago may not be in today's economy. The cost of feed, fuel, and overhead can dwarf the record high cattle prices and still leave ranchers wondering why they can't get ahead.
No matter when or where we sell our livestock the end customer is the person with the steak knife. Sure each of us are a link in the supply chain, but big picture, we are to get fat beef to the table as economically as possible.
Here at the Blackford Cattle Co. we are not going to make any extravagant claims about our cattle, our customers seem to do that for us. Thirty years ago when Steve Teichert first started putting Angus bulls on his registered Hereford cows he wasn't sure what these black baldies would do. As he started raising papered black badly bulls for everyone's black baldy cows the Blackford was created. Over the years there has been many educational experiences and many successes as well. Today we specialize in raising registered yearling Blackford bulls. These cattle are tasty and tender off grass so they work excellent for the all natural beef customer, they also have an excellent track record in the feed yard. Our customers have learned when the feeder makes money on a set of calves he is much more interested in repeat business and will pay a premium to get it.
There seem to be many fads in the beef industry today but natural efficient cattle are the future of the industry. Let's see if Blackfords can help your operation be in the industry well into the future.
