Which payment methods do you accept?
If you would like to reserve a bull and pay through our website credit or debit cards are accepted. If you would like to pay at time of pickup, we will accept cash or check from a local bank.
What if the bull gets injured during the lease?
If something happens to your bull please just bring him back to the ranch and we will exchange him for you at no additional charge. It is our expectation that while the bull is in your care that he has adequate access to food and water and is cared for as well as the rest of your livestock. We expect the bull to return in the same or better body condition at the time he was picked up.
What is the rental rate?
$950 for 120-day lease period
Bull rental is cost effective. Bull rental immediately introduces hybrid vigor into your herd resulting in higher weaning weights. Bull rental reduces risk of property damage and other nuisances that bored, fat bulls cause when they are not gainfully employed.
But I don't have a breeding season!?
We recommend that all producers go to a 60 - 90 breeding season. This can be hard to convert to depending on the size of your herd. It will be worth it in the long run. Stockers and Feeders want to see uniform calves. Stockers and Feeders will pay better for a uniform set of weaned calves.
A good way to convert your herd to a breeding season is to get your cattle pregnancy checked by your local veterinarian. You can then group your cattle into seasons. At this point you may choose to sell some and replace them to fit your chosen season. If you have any questions or would like to discuss the conversion to breeding seasons please don't hesitate to reach out. It is more cost effective in the long run to change over and your buyers will see a better product. Win win!!
