When your cattle calve together in a tight window, there are certain advantages that can be realized, including uniformity in age and weight and a wide-open selection of top preforming sires. Elite Beef has the capacity to handle all synchronization and breeding needs in-house and we will oversee your girls' progress every step of the way. We lean on our relationships with multiple semen collection companies to provide consultation on the best sire for your needs.
Several variables are at play when considering rates of conception using AI and we want to help you succeed. Elite Beef can connect you with many different options for "clean-up" bulls to ensure your cattle achieve the highest calving rate possible. Give us a call, we are happy to answer any additional questions you may have.
We have all had instances when it becomes necessary to grow replacement heifers and forage is scarce. Or, when after picking up bulls from breeding, they need to replenish burned calories from chasing the girls around. Parking cattle in our facility provides an opportunity to closely evaluate your herd and make any necessary tweaks, improvements, or culls. The next time your cattle need some extra groceries, give us a call.
We provide feeding services for all phases of raising quality cattle. Even if you are not fattening calves for harvest, we can provide the extra calories your herd needs at times when the weather is not cooperating and native forage is scarce. Taking advantage of our mild year-round climate & access to many high quality local ration commodities, we offer rations that are nutrient rich with the bottom line in mind.
Elite Beef offers 4 rations to meet the needs of your herd throughout your production cycle:
Growing Ration, Intermediate Ration, Finishing Ration and an Outside Cow Ration.
Elite Beef manages two natural beef programs for which your cattle could potentially qualify. To compliment our focus on raising natural cattle, we have relationships with two major packers to help get the most money for your naturally raised calves. We are happy to provide consultation on your options and walk you through step by step.
We also have a relationship with a commercial packer, ensuring there is a spot ready for all market ready cattle.
Many of our customers are serious about genetics, and rightly so. Introducing proven genetics into your breeding program is an excellent strategy to improve your bottom line.
Elite Beef is equipped to help you in the selection process of "potential" breeding stock. Starting with a gain test to decide which animals gain more on less feed, we then couple that information with an ultrasound score reading on the animal's rib-eye area. These two pieces of information provide a wealth of knowledge when selecting the top performers in your herd, ensuring your money spent on herd improvement is fact based and efficient.
