In the spring of 2009 we bought a small herd of "mutt cows" (aka our "science project".) At that same time, we were introduced to Irish Blacks for the first time. We purchased an Irish Black bull for our cow herd. As cattle producers we were looking for a way that we could work with what we had and make it better. The results were unbelievable. We were sold!! After more research, prayer & head scratching we added a pure bred herd of Irish Blacks to our operation, in order to sell bulls for commercial herds. Please view our commercial herd page to see the pictures! You'll be amazed!
Now into our fourth year of running cows we believe that Irish Blacks are a cowman's dream come true! Everything that has been written, said and experienced in regards to "IB's" is true. From calving ease, weaning weights, motherability, to carcass quality, and rate of gain, calving ease, it was all true. Our percentage calves have far exceeded our expectations. The neighbors who saw our science experiment cow herd immediately started asking if we had bull calves for sale.
