A lot of our animals are sold private treaty off the farm. We also consign animals to a variety of sales all year long. Come look at what we are putting in a sale near you.
As a registered Beefmaster Breeder, we at Wallen Prairie Ranch strive to raise and promote our cattle based upon the founding : "Six Essentials" Disposition, Fertility, Weight, Conformation, Hardiness and Milk Production.
We do all weights and measures, birth weights, 205 day weights and 365 day weights. We also do 365 day ultrasounding on all our animals by a BBU Certified Technician as well as classification done by the BBU Field Service Representative. This provides us important data as well as information our customers can use to buy with confidence.
We are constantly striving to create the best "real world" cattle that are feed efficient and the most profitable cattle we can raise. I know we have the right breed to reach our goals. We currenty run about 150 registered females on their ranch located about 10 miles northeast of Lockwood, Missouri.
If you are in the southwest Missouri area, please stop by for a ranch tour. We would love to show you our cattle.
To achieve a kind of animal that you want we use our powerful herd of females in both A.I. and embryo programs mating them with top sires from across the breed.
We use high quality herd bulls that create progeny with low birth weights, big weaning and yearling weights. This is very important to us, because after all, beef is sold by the pound. We also like to keep them clean, muscular and visually pleasing to the eye.
We can’t keep them all but what we can do is collect the ones that we find special interested in. Of course we sell semen on our herd sires but we also have inventory on some of the past bulls that are now producing in other programs.
