We are 3rd and 4th generation ranchers. Our family came over in the early 1900s from Czechoslovakia. We are all involved in the operation in some shape of form. Gerard & Anita live on the home place where the bulls are kept. Lincoln & wife Brenda Pochop, Landon, Breckyn & Leo live west of McDonald. The kids love checking cows and watching the new calves being born.
We would like to Thank You
There are several qualities we as producers need to start paying attention to more.

WHO AND WHAT IS AG BOOST:
AG Boost is an independent genetic data company that processes your DNA through Igenity, which is a non-breed specific third-party DNA lab. The data comes back to AG Boost in a 16 trait genetic profile. These 16 traits are the core of what most cattlemen need to help make a more targeted selection for their sire needs. From these 16 traits, there are four target areas that you can see more specifically how the individual performed compared to others. Those areas are Production, Maternal, Performance, and Carcass Traits.
As the industry leans more toward being data-driven, we were looking for a company that would give us a non-biased DNA evaluation.I was looking around for another breeder that was doing what we were trying to accomplish. That is when I found Craig Guffey of Swearingin Angus by Lawrance, KS. Why did we choose AG Boost over Angus Genomics? Quite simply we were looking for a non-biased 3rd party evaluation of what our cattle are. Another feature is the simplicity at which data is presented. It is easy for anyone to understand and use for their selection needs.
BULL SALE INFO:
We are excited and will continue to use AgBoost. I will still provide actual data that we have taken from these bulls. Our overall score was a 6. This is calculated off the true genetic value based on all breeds, not a subset of Angus. The most important thing to understand is we have kept all traits balanced to allow performance, efficiency, and long-term maternal value.
The ranch is located in Northwest Kansas 30 miles north of I-70 and 14 miles west of Atwood, KS on HWY 36. Always available for on the farm viewing of the bulls!
