What our Clients are Saying
"I've been buying Judd Ranch bulls for 12 years, and I keep returning. I've had zero calving problems with heifer bulls. The calves hit the ground growing and keep going. I give high praises to the replacement heifers as they are phenomenal. They make super mama cows, and the heifers I sell are in high demand."
"When I saw the Judd Ranch bull offering the first time, I was impressed with the quality. The bull offering was great all the way through. I was impressed again when calves arrived and grew out. The quality of the bull's calves, particularly as his replacement heifers developed, was what I was after. I'm also continually impressed with the feet and legs of my Judd Ranch bulls."
"I'm a big fan of Judd Ranch Gelbvieh sired females. The more Judd Ranch Gelbvieh in my cows, the better the cow. They are very fertile and make good mama cows. They are good natured too."
"I've been very pleased with the improvement seen in my weaning weights as well as the maternal traits of the females retained in my herd. Judd Ranch bulls and their offspring are docile and easy to handle."
"The Judd Ranch steer calves are always the bigger, thicker calves in the herd."
"Judd Ranch bulls are fantastic. I don't think you could find a deeper set of bulls, from top to bottom, anywhere in the country. Plus, my Judd Ranch sired calves are consistently weaning at 650 pounds."
"I was really impressed with the quality of the bulls and the number of bulls in the sale. Before I went, people had told me I would be surprised that so many bulls could look so good, and they were right. At other sales it's often hard to find just one bull that will meet my criteria, but that wasn't the case at the Judd Ranch bull sale. I had lots of choices, as lots of bulls met my criteria. You have to like having lots of choices."
"I started using Judd Ranch bulls in 2000. My calf weights jumped about 50 pounds that first year and have continued to improve by at least 100 pounds. My Judd Ranch sired females look great and have added a lot of good maternal strength to my herd."
"Since using Judd Ranch bulls, we've gained about 75 pounds at weaning straight across the board compared to Angus or Charolais cross. Our Judd Ranch influenced replacement heifers breed earlier and make excellent mothers. And you won't find better cow people or people in general than the Judd's."
"I sell my calves between the third and fourth week of January, and our first set of Judd Ranch sired calves were easily 100 pounds heavier than the calves out of my other bulls. That's why I was willing to pay more for my second set of Judd Ranch bulls sight unseen. I know what Judd Ranch bulls can do for my program. When we met Dave Judd and spent a bit of time with him, I was impressed with Dave. He's a true cowman."
"For cattlemen to survive in these economic times, you need efficient cattle, and you get efficient cattle when you buy cattle from Judd Ranch. They raise practical, sound, efficient cattle that work for the everyday cowman."
"Where we live, in the Ozark Hills, the ground is rocky and doesn't hold water very well. A cow has to do a lot on her own. I was a bit worried about how the Judd cows would transition from prairie grass to our fescue and orchard grass. My worries proved unfounded. Our Judd purchases didn't lose weight. They maintained themselves nicely throughout the year, and their calves grew nicely. I couldn't be happier. Also, our Judd cows are very mild mannered, and they have superb teats and udders."
