Black Rock Farm

Our goal at Black Rock Farm is to provide the cattle industry with gentle, thick muscled, functional cattle with balanced EPDs aimed to improve our customers' herds. We select cows that have good structure, udder quality, gentle dispositions, and excellent mothering ability. We evaluate our herd annually and cull any cow that does not meet our standards for fertility, structure, and performance. Our herdsires are selected from other progressive seedstock producers based on individual performance, genetics, and EPDs with moderate birth, excellent growth and carcass, and high in maternal traits. We use leading sires from AI studs on our younger cows in an effort to provide consumers with the best genetics possible. Our cattle are bred to be moderately framed, fast growing, and easy keeping.

News

We have weaned another crop of fantastic calves! Spring was such a blessing as there was plenty of grass and cooler temperatures, and the bulls are looking quite impressive. There is always something to do here on the farm with baling hay, spraying pastures, and feeding hungry calves!

Please save the date October 12, 2024 for our 2nd Annual Bull Sale. EPD information on the bulls in the sale will be posted in the For Sale section of our website soon. More information to come and always check our Facebook page for details.
