My Operation is focused on breeding purebred Berkshires and crossbreds, with a handful of purebred Hampshires and Yorkshires.  I expect the purebreds to compete nationally and also breed on and be able to function in a purebred or commercial operation.  I utilize our Top AI Sires that are 2nd to None!  Let BTC Genetics help take you to the next level!

I also run a cowherd that consist mostly of purebred angus with a handful of commercials bred for club calves.  The angus cattle have been aggresively bred and selected for superior phenotype.  They are heavy muscled,  easy  fleshing  cattle, with exceptional calving - ease and big EPD's.  My angus cows also offer outstanding carcass and performance data with excellent udders and dispositions.  These cattle will suit the most discrimanating eye and will work for purebred or commercial herds.  I will continue to use the Top AI sires and utilize embryo transfer on my top cows.

Since Sept. 12th, 2001 I have had 47 National Champions or Reserves at the 4 National Berk Shows - STC, NBS, WTC, and WPX. Plus Numerous Breed Champion Barrows & Gilts at the Junior Shows.
