We focus on producing females that are maternally efficient and productive on grass.
What does the Ideal Female look like to a Brubaker?
Selecting for females on a cattle operation is just as important as selecting an ideal bull. Some traits we look for when adding a new female to our prestigious herd include selecting animals with firm feet and leg structure, a straight top line, deep chests, and a productive udder. Females with sound footing and straight top-line will live a productive, trouble free life on the farm because there are fewer imperfections in her phenotype. A great barrel and productive udder are also very important in selecting a female since her ability to produce offspring correlates with your success. A productive female should wean calves at no less than 50% of her own weight. Many of our cows wean their calves at 70% of her weight. With all this being said we also take pedigree into account. In essence, we look at physical traits the exude the female’s productivity while taking into account her pedigree to ensure she will be fertile, calve with ease, and live a long and productive life on the farm.
