Cattle Today



Cleburne, Texas – Plans are currently underway for the eighteenth annual Fall Fest Simmental/Simbrah Sale and this year breeders have already promised some outstanding, state-of-the-art Simmental and Simbrah cattle. The Heart of Texas Simmental/Simbrah Association has once again agreed to sponsor this year's sale which will be held at the Drew Ranch near Hearne, Texas, on September 13, 2008. Fall Fest is considered to be one of the premier sources for elite Black Simmental cattle in Texas. In addition, excellent Red Simmental, Black and Red SimAngus, Black & Red Simbrah and Fleckvieh genetics are traditionally offered. The Das Fleckvieh Gruppen will return with fifteen to twenty top Fleckvieh females from their members' herds and this year Fall Fest welcomes Simbrah Alliance members with a special feature consignment of exceptional Simbrah cattle.

Early consignments include a fancy set of bred Black Simmental heifers all A.I. sired and A.I. bred to top calving ease bulls. A set of young, strong Black and Red Simmental cows with calves at side will sell, again with elite pedigrees; and a group of true show prospects will be offered, including both Simmental and Simbrah. The SimAngus consignments will include some broody bred females – the “mama cow kind.” Simbrah will be represented in numbers this year with a good selection of pairs, bred females and open show prospects from Alliance members.

With spiraling input costs, cattlemen are becoming increasingly aware of the need to reintroduce heterosis to produce heavier weaning calves. This is creating and growing demand for Simgenetics as they are the Continental and American breeds of choice to add growth, efficiency, milk, muscle, mothering ability and carcass superiority. Fall Fest has long been known as the fall source for breeders to acquire state-of-the-art Simgenetics to help supply this growing demand.
