Options and Solutions

Nelson Livestock Company's breeding program offers options and solutions as we offer Americanized Black and Red Simmentals, Red and Black SimAngus and Purebred Black Angus cattle that are performance selected. Performance selected using EPDs, ratios, linear measurements, planned mating, carcass testing and ultrasounding to help increase overall beef production. Nelson Livestock Simmentals will provide you with muscle, high cutability, growth, fertility, maternal power and calving ease that will move them to be the continental breed of choice. Nelson Livestock Angus will provide the hardiness, marbling, good females and market acceptability.

Nelson Livestock SimAngus are a combination of Simmental and Angus from a well planned crossbreeding program. They will increase pounds of calf versus cow exposed by 20%. Using a crossbred cow will give you 30% more lifetime production. Crossbreeding utilizing hererosis is the only free lunch in the cattle industry.

Nelson Livestock Company's offering of black and red Simmentals and SimAngus plus a selected group of Angus provides the options and solutions of developing your program to straight breed or giving you the option to utilize heterosis.
