Cow Herd

Approximately 230 Registered Falling Timber Farm females will calve in five different counties located in Warren, Franklin, Gasconade, Montgomery, and Callaway counties this year. Each year we retain replacement females and offer the remainder to registered and commercial breeders. Typically we sell about 60 to 70 herd bull prospects and finish out steers on grain and silage produced on the farm.

In 1974 we entered the registered seedstock business by replacing our commercial herd of mostly Polled Herefords with groups of heifers from six different Performance Tested Herds. We purchased the best performance tested bulls we could find and rigidly culled for continued improvement. More recently we have used extensive A.I. techniques and retained bulls from our best cow families. This has really helped improve udder quality and uniformity of the cowherd. The goal has been to produce highly productive, predictable females that will calve at 2 years of age, have great dispositions, and breed back like clock work. As the accuracy of EPDs improve, we are using this data, as well as our knowledge of multiple generations of cow families at Falling Timber Farm, to fast-forward genetic progress.

In recent years a majority of the cows were bred to proven bulls with curve bending genetics and cleaned up with bulls from our best cow families.
