Cattle For Sale

Buckhorn Ranch maintains a herd of 300 black commercial cows and uses only high quality Angus Bulls.  Our cows migrate up and down the mountain with the seasons and are handled as naturally as possible, never leaving the ranch.  Cattle For SaleThe cowherd has been built from within over several years of careful selection from a group of Angus cows purchased in 2004.  Our aim is to raise medium framed, deep bodied animals that gain and maintain flesh easily on only the forage available.  Great attention has been given to maternal traits in our herd as we seek to raise fertile, easy calving females with soundness, longevity, and temperament.  Heifers are expected to calve without assistance, milk generously, and be gentle enough to handle on foot.  All our herd bulls are selected for fleshing ability, calving ease, depth of body, healthy scrotal measurement, and low PAP scores. Steer calves are usually weaned Nov. 1, averaging 650 lbs. and are sold as feeders in the fall, while heifer calves are evaluated and sorted for replacement heifers.  Our goal is to supply ourselves and other producers with the highest quality Angus replacements for their cow herds. We believe the cattle industry is moving away from the 1600# hay burners toward a moderate framed efficient cow that will wean over 50% of her body weight with little or no help. Our goal is to produce females that will operate on a sustainable basis through thick or thin.

Reference Herd Sire: PCC BA Cinch - 2012 son of PCC TQ Scince. 65# BW, -1.3 BW EPD. Cinch is a real stud and we have not tested his limits yet. This year we put him out with 50 head of our best cows. They stayed in the valley for 30 days, then escaped to a 1300 acre mountain pasture for the rest of the summer. He kept them bunched for the next 30 days then came home, fat as a tick. We were worried, so we hauled him back to the cows. He was home again the next day. At preg check, every last cow was bred on time! Cinch is also our low maintenance champ. Here he is December 26th, 2016, still fat and happy, grazing in the snow, with no additional supplement.
