Sue and I welcome you to our first timed auction event sale for Bachman Cattle Farms, LLC. We like to use the term, “Game-Changer” to describe the offering we are making to you in this sale. We believe God requires us to give Him the best we have to offer and in turn we feel blessed to offer some of the best genetics we have here on the farm.
The “Game-Changer I” sale focused on dispersing our Gelbvieh and Balancer cattle and we then focused 100% on Red Angus Seedstock. We are so pleased with the great maternal capabilities of the Red Angus breed – great mother cows make great bulls and replacement heifers.
We are working hard to bring you animals, genetic interest opportunities, embryos and semen from animals that are helping us to achieve our 3P-75.75.35 program. Simply stated, the 3P stands for Phenotype, Power and Profitability. We are committed to a rigorous development program that bring eye-appealing, easy fleshing, deep bodied Red Angus cattle with structural correctness to live in you herd for a long time. That’s the 3P portion of the program. 75.75.35 is our way of setting the goal to have progeny that born and raised here that has 75% of those animals with at least 75% of their EPDs ranking in the top 35% of the breed. This is our commitment to improving the genetic merit through paying attention to EPD performance in connection with new DNA techniques.
To our established customers, we thank you for your on-going support of our operation and cattle. To our possible new customers, we invite you to contact us to answer any questions you may have. We thank God for the blessings he brings to us through establishing these relationships.
All the best!
Scott & Sue Bachman
