The bull herd consists of bulls predominately purchased from Nichols Farms in Bridgewater, Iowa. Nichols Farms has been researching cattle for over 50 years and has grown into the largest seed stock producer in the Midwest.  We bought our first bulls from Dave Nichols in the mid 90’s and have been with them ever since. Nichols Superior Genetics is a leader in objectively measuring traits and marketing genetics. This has added real value to our cow herd over the past 25 years. The beef industry is ever changing. Our objectives on the farm have made adjustments as well. We've gone from selling feeder calves locally, to marketing finished cattle on the rail where quality is a must. Dave Nichols has supplied us with the necessary tools to make this transition profitable.
