Charolais Private Treaty Bulls

Wooden Cross Private Treaty Bull Sales

We sell all our Charolais bulls private treaty which gives us the time to personally get to know you and your program at your convenience as well as to tell you as much about ours that you want to hear. It is important to us that we match you up with the genetics that best fit your overall program assisting you in achieving your goals.

Our bulls are “Raised Rough to be Tough” in a ranch environment, not a padded stall barn. We understand that soundness and the ability for a young bull to trail a cow and get her bred is very important. For us, it is survival of the fittest only allowing the strongest of our herd’s genetics to be passed on through planned natural cover and in-herd AI mating’s. Our closed herd Charolais program of nearly 20 years provides predictable young sires for our customers.

We feel that favorable maternal traits help us to produce better young Charolais herd sires for you. With traits such as sound structure, moderation, fertility and calf raising ability also comes efficiency. Easy fleshing and the ability to gain weight efficiently will add more to your bottom line than any other single trait. We continue to identify the very best of our easy fleshing cost effective cow families and sire groups as we build on our closed herd program. It’s all about quality and pounds with the lowest input costs possible that will provide you with the most favorable results. So, whether you sell calves at weaning time, yearlings after growing, or go all the way to harvest against a grid, our bulls will provide you with added pounds and premiums.
