Bred Heifers from Downey Ranch
Downey Ranch offers heart-of-the-herd bred heifers representing years of deliberate breeding and strict culling. The dams of these heifers have proven themselves year after year on some of the toughest range found in the Flint Hills. They're fenceline weaned as calves and turned right back out onto pasture to graze, NOT developed in a lot. They're grown slowly and in conditions they'll find as production cows, meaning they're out foraging for a living. The only exception is about 2 months ahead of breeding season when we're synchronizing them for AI. This means they thrive on range, know how to graze for a living, and are ready to go to work.
The following heifers are SOLD. We leave them up so you can see the kind we offer. More coming in the Fall 2023 sale!
