Cattlemen and women,
“Happy New Year”, as we enter the 2012 realm, some things seem to follow us, and some are pulled along. Those involved in agriculture are use to life’s changes and challenges. The world economy and financial structure still deem our attention and adjustments.
We, Smith Farms, are very excited and positive about the cattle industry! We are responsible for helping feed the world, and food isn’t something that people can do without, as we ride out the recession. The demand for our quality products will still be here and will continue to grow with world population. We enjoy the excitement added to our operation by our sons and grandsons, (Talan & Evan), both have acquired a love for these bovine!! Talan can already tell you the history of certain females by reading the number on the tag, although the Reds seem to be his favorites!!
Smith Farms Angus rides the complete circle of the cattle industry, from conception to the hanging rail, by relying on others to help find a balance for success. By having a progressive seed-stock provider like Smith Farms Angus, we are able to help you move towards the goals of success set within your own operations. We continue to work with proven genetics that will provide increased production for more pounds to sell at whatever segment of the industry you merchandise those pounds in. We feel that feed efficiency within those genetics is becoming increasingly important with rising input costs. Therefore, the culling and selection will become more critical than ever before. You’ll be culling to control cost and making genetic selections to increase production.
