Buttercreek Ranch Headquarters
FELLOW CATTLEMEN AND FRIENDS,
Thank you for visiting our website. We welcome your review and hope we can be of service.
Price Cattle Company has been producing quality Angus cattle since 1984. Since our beginning with exceptional Wye bred heifers, we have been selecting for and breeding to proven Angus sires known for maternal traits. We have developed a truly elite Angus cow herd.
In 1989 we expanded our Angus program to incorporate Simmental and Gelbvieh genetics to produce what we call "Herdmaker" Composites. The addition of these breeds provides genetic diversity and hybrid vigor to our offering. As with our Angus program we only use proven sires in these breeds and stress maternal traits to enhance production under rugged range conditions.
The selection criteria for our Angus and Composite seedstock is the same. We select for moderate birth weight, frame size and milk with above average growth and superior carcass quality. All our cattle run together in traditional fashionâ€¦calving on inside pastures so calves can be properly tagged and birth weights recorded, bred AI for 45 days, then hauled to summer pasture and rangeland until weaning. Calves are weaned in late summer, returned to our Buttercreek Ranch headquarters for processing, and then entered into a commercial feed yard for growth evaluation and testing. At every opportunity our bulls are scrutinized for conformational traits. Bulls not meeting our strict criteria are rejected, banded, and sent to Beef Northwest Feedlot for finishing as steers.
The bulls we offer for sale are deep ribbed, muscled cattle with superior feet and legs. Bulls also meet our standard for docility. You will find our cattle to be quiet and easy to handle. Each bull is presale priced and may be purchased on sale day at the assigned price. If a bull has multiple buyer interest on sale day, he will be "bid off" in a very friendly manner with NO HYPE.
Sale prices reflect our desire to sell exceptional bulls at substantial value compared to the highly advertised and promoted sales which are common today.
Come see for yourself.
Bulls are currently on feed at Top Cut feedlot near Hermiston, Oregon until early February, 2018. Following ultrasound evaluation and semen testing, they will be moved to our Buttercreek Ranch for display until sale day.
We will be selling over 90 bulls ... consisting of well developed yearlings and two year old herd bulls.
Join us Sale Day--FEBUARY 23, 2018 at our Buttercreek Ranch. Lunch will be served at 11am, and the sale begins at 1pm.
