“When the trailer gate shuts, the book isn’t closed.” –  Jerry Wheeler

Why Gelbvieh?

Today’s beef industry requires that you work hard for your cow herd. With Gelbvieh and Gelbvieh-influenced cattle, your cow herd will work as hard as you do.

Pounds still pay. It’s well documented that the Gelbvieh cow weans off more pounds of calf. And a Gelbvieh bull on your commercial cows gives you an advantage in heterosis. That means at weaning time, you’ll get bigger rewards.

You don’t have time to do Mother Nature’s job. Gelbvieh cattle are known for their fertility, milking and mothering abilities, and docility. You don’t have worry about losing money on cows that don’t breed back or cows that won’t raise a calf. And, should there ever be a problem you don’t have to worry about handling an animal.

The Meat Animal Research Center shows that Gelbvieh cattle have worked harder than any other breed at maintaining a moderate framed cow – meaning that those cows maximize efficiency and save you dollars.

Average Weaning Weights Compared to Other Breeds

Angus Sired: 514.6lb    Balancer Sired: 516.3lbs    Gelbvieh Sired: 530.6lbs

Decreased Age at Puberty

The MARC data also shows Gelbvieh-sired calves will reach puberty at an earlier age – 329 days on average. This means, Gelbvieh influenced females have the potential to breed earlier and produce a calf at a younger age – putting money in the commercial man’s pocket.
