Perry Angus strives to use
selected AI genetics to produce functional Angus cattle
that will perform in real life conditions. Mating
decisions are made to produce cattle with low to
moderate birth weight while maintaining and improving
performance traits such as weaning and yearling weights.
You can see from our sire selection that carcass traits
are very important in our program. Cows need to milk and
produce calves that approach or exceed 50% of the cow’s
weight at weaning. We strive to produce cattle whose
milk EPD’s exceed breed average.
longevity as a very important trait and feel that structural
issues that could affect longevity and performance have no place
in breeding programs.
In addition to basic measurements made at birth, weaning,
we use genomic testing to enhance the accuracy of the EPD

Our greatest blessing is our relationship with
our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We have also been blessed with a
beautiful family, and thank God every day for each and every one of
our family members. Our goal is to glorify God in our personal and
LAND STEWARDSHIP AND
God has given us an awesome responsibility as
caretakers of the land and animals. We take that seriously and work
continuously to protect and improve the land and water that support
our cattle farm. We have invested in cross fencing and watering
systems that allow us to use rotational grazing to more efficiently
manage our forage program. Our cattle are managed by Beef Quality
Assurance guidelines (BQA).
