Bar T Bar breeding philosophy
- We cull the ones that don’t work -
Simplified crossbreeding: We optimize maternal hybrid vigor by sourcing outcross Angus Red and Black (British), Gelbvieh (continental), and SimAngus for our Balancer Genetics. Brangus, Beefmaster, or Santa Gertrudis (heat-tolerant) genetics with the Balancer producing Southern Balancer Genetics. In our own commercial herd, using Balancers® and Southern Balancers has reduced the number of herds we run, increasing range-management flexibility and reducing costs over time.
Added value in the marketplace: We produce calves that meet the industry demand for feedlot efficiency and carcass grade and yield. Those cattle that meet grid and branded specifications are even more valuable.
