Come visit and check out our purebred Gelbvieh and Balancer (Gelbvieh x Angus) replacement heifers and bred heifers for sale!
Bow K Ranch females have been developed through 32 years of A.I. breeding. Reds and blacks, polled, EPD’s and pedigrees on all animals. We have calving ease and performance animals available.
All calves are administered vaccines at birth, branding, and pre-weaning. The bred heifers and cows are vaccinated pre-breeding and pre-calving. All animals are poured twice a year.
We believe in and practice quiet cattle-handling methods.
Our breeding program has always emphasized moderate-sized cows (1,100 to 1,300 pound cows), quality udders, adequate milk, built-in calving ease, and bred-in longevity.
Our pairs are run above Gunnison, Colorado at high elevations during the summer and fall. The bred yearling heifers are kept at the home place until they have had a calf before going to the mountains.
About the third week of September the calves are weaned and trucked 100 miles to the home place. The feeding regime consists of hay, Purina Accuration®, and minerals for three weeks until they have gained back their weight and started growing again. The heifers are then transitioned to pasture with a mineral supplement. About January or February (depending on the snow) the heifers are then fed hay, a 20% protein, and 2-3# of corn until breeding time.
If you are looking for females with good dispositions, nice phenotypes, and solid breeding give us a call!
