With these clearly defined priorities, we take a “Balanced approach to Performance Hereford Genetics” targeted on:
* Calving Ease – Low to moderate Birth Weights
* Moderate to high Weaning and Yearling growth
* Top 20% of the Hereford breed for carcass merit and profit indexes
The Genoa Livestock herd currently includes 230 registered Herefords comprised of horned and polled genetics. Our foundational genetics derived from the top herds in the Midwest and West. We attain our breeding goals by using the breed’s top performing Sires and our proven Donor Cows in a focused embryo transfer and artificial insemination program. For 12 consecutive years, Genoa Livestock’s bulls and heifers have ranked higher than the AHA breed average in 14 of 15 measured traits and in the top 20% in all 3 indexes.
All aspects of the breeding to birth cycle are closely monitored here at the ranch. Qualifying bull calves are transferred to our onsite bull development facility which functions as our operation’s “bull test” – producing sound and fully tested bulls for our Annual Bull Sale.
Treat your herd with great care and your customers with complete respect.
Meeting our breeding and customer service objectives requires a closely monitored approach. Our experienced crew is dedicated to producing an annual calf crop that is healthy and ultimately embodies the traits our customers need. Toward this end, the entire herd is visually assessed each and every day, selectively culled, fully DNA tested and covered by a complete vaccination and health maintenance protocol throughout their time at Genoa Livestock.
By knowing our herd so well, we can match our buyer’s needs with just the right bulls and females. We stand behind our sale animals with a 100% satisfaction guarantee and feel honored when our buyers return year after year.
