Hybrid Vigor Key For Commercial Cattle Producers, Says Veteran Texas Rancher Donnell Brown

Mon, 14 Dec 2020 09:55:14 CST

Hybrid Vigor Key For Commercial Cattle Producers, Says Veteran Texas Rancher Donnell Brown Itís all about profitability if you want to stay in business and a key for commercial cattle producers is increasing hybrid vigor within their herds.

For more than 100 years the R.A. Brown Ranch, Throckmorton, TX., has been producing commercial and seed stock cattle. Donnell Brown, a 5th generation rancher has worked with 18 different breeds of cattle and today has settled on a three-breed rotation of Angus, Red Angus and Simmental cattle.

Thereís just no substitute for the enhanced longevity and reproductive efficiency that hybrid vigor brings to the table by introducing outside genetics to the herd, Brown said.

We feel Simmental is that component to benefit our customers, Brown said.

Selling 800 bulls annually, Brown said their ranch uses sound science for a sustainable, profitable future.

The Simmental Association is focused on performance cattle, he said.

The focus continues to be emphasizing how we can make better cattle, Brown said.

That to me that is what itís all about, he said.

Brownís commercial cattle customers agree.

Our customers tell us the Sim-Angus bulls deliver more muscle and more pounds of beef at weaning time than any other breed we work with, Brown said.

Itís about good breeding enhanced by hybrid vigor, Brown said.

Producers are able to produce the right kind of beef to meet consumersí demands.

Our family has stayed in business by making commercial cattlemen money, Brown said, thatís our number one goal.
