The PMB cows are MANAGED LIKE most COMMERCIAL COWHERDS in our area.
We started the PMB cowherd as a "TEST HERD". We wanted to make sure the kind of cattle that were producing the bulls we were selling to the commercial cattlemen in this area WOULD FUNCTION and thrive when MANAGED AS COMMERCIALS.
We also wanted to sample some of the most PROMISING YOUNG BULLS that were graduating from the PMB program.
Many registered breeders do not want to risk using young, unproven sires in their programs. At PMB, we believe a large number of POTENTIALLY GREAT breeding bulls are being lost to the industry because they are NEVER "DISCOVERED".
As a result, WE A.I. to the high profile "bull stud" sires just enough to get an ACCURATE COMPARISION of the siring ability of the young PMB graduates to that of the high accuracy proven bulls.
The "proof" that we are seeking comes from COMPARING the PROGENY of the young sires to that of the proven sires. This includes PERFORMANCE in the pasture and during the test, the ACCEPTANCE level of our commercial bull customers, and the REPRODUCTIVE EFFICIENCY of the daughters in the pasture.
While this process takes several years, we have rarely been disappointed!
We are gratified to report that bulls coming from the PMB cowherd, including many sired by our young sires, have been selling above the average at recent PMB sales.
If you are in the area, stop by. We'd be happy to show you what the young sires we are sampling are capable of.
