At ZumBrunnen Angus we’re totally focused on producing functional, high-performing beef cattle that deliver value under tough, real-world conditions. When you reach us at the end of the road, you won’t find a fancy sale barn or white rail fences, but a real working beef cattle operation. Our cows have to earn their keep just like yours. As a group, they are some of the highest-efficiency females in the Angus breed. Our herd sires are bred to deliver calving ease, with growth and carcass EPDs ranking in the very top of the Angus breed. We call it “practical performance, by design.” Give us a call. Or better yet, come out for a visit. We’d love to hear about your goals for your own program, and and talk about how we can partner to improve your beef business.
Customer Buyback Program
We have began a customer buyback program because we believe in our genetics to add value in the feedlot and on the rail. In 2018 the carcasses off one pen of our steers earned an average of $173/hd premiums. As these were our bottom end animals, we believe that many of our customers have cattle that will perform as good or better. In 2018 we purchased or partnered in over 200 head of some long time customer cattle. We will have that data back by midyear and we expect to expand our feeding company with more of our customers' cattle. If you have bought bulls from us in the past, please let us know when you are marketing your calves and we would be a potential buyer.
