Black Creek completed construction of our very own Bull Development Pen in 2019. We did not consign to test centers and our prospective yearling herd sires were sold on farm by private treaty. 2019 was a success as all of our bulls were able to find a new home. Our pen features a 5 acre wooded exercise area, a sheltered bedding area, and a good long walk to water and the grain trough.
New to 2020 is a decision to switch to a pail fed grain ration supplemented by free choice barley/oat/pea silage bales. What a noticeable difference in terms of cleanliness over a grain self feeder and free choice hay.
We have a very promising group of prospects off AI sire MAR Innovation 251, and our own herd sire Bear Creek Stoney 55D. Both these sires have lived up to their expectations in terms of calves with explosive growth, leaving exceptional daughters for our replacement pen, and most noticeable good FEET.
Time well spent ………. I’ve always felt that the most important key in selecting your bull battery is to spend a day visiting and looking at the herd from which you plan to buy your bulls. If you like the cows and the management of them, that’s where you need to be buying your bull from. It’s pretty simple, bulls leave daughters like their mothers and grandmothers!
You are always welcome here at Black Creek to look over our herd.
We are located in south west Manitoba approximately 20 minutes south of Brandon, exactly 4 miles south of the Wawanesa Hwy #10 & #2 Junction and then 1 mile west. See our Map for more details.
