Here are some snap shots of the replacement heifers we raised from last year’s fall crop. We are keeping this set of heifers, but if you are in the market this fall for their sisters, keep us in mind!!! Our genetics are proven for great milk, growth, and disposition.

I am so proud of this first time new mama. She is not the typical heifer we would keep, but her mama has been a proven, fertile, gentle cow that we raised years ago. Yesterday, We watched this first time mama do something I have never seen before. She labored without laying down. We were concerned because most cows lay down and push hard. But this girl just walked around twitching her tail for about 45 minutes and then, with a little push, her baby was born. Amazing!!! She has been taking great care of it and it’s a perfect size for her!!

She even took it up to it’s daddy, standing in the background. 😂

Bobby and I did some shopping this morning!!
We got our pick Bull, Lot 14. And we are going to try two yearling bulls that Bobby picked out.
Lot 14 Boasts in the top 5% in weaning weight and the top 10% in yearling and ribeye area EPDs. If you are looking for females out of this bull, he is in the top 35% in milk EPD!! This is an all around bull for our program.
Lot 63 has 10 traits in the top 20% in the breed!!! He is in the top 10% in weaning, yearling and ribeye area. And you will want females out of him…get this….he is in the top 2% in milk!!!
Lot 64 is not too far behind lot 63. He has 12 traits in the top 35% in the breed with his weaning and yearling EPDs in the top 10% and ribeye in the top 15%. His milk is not too shabby either at 35%.
Welcome beef and female producing power house bulls to DeGraan Farms!!!
Thank you Quail Valley Farms for these great offerings and quality production in your genetics.

This year’s replacement heifers are have turned out amazing!! This group of 21 was up for sale to make someone a productive, front pasture set of mamas, but we have decided to keep them ourselves!!! We had to get rid of a big portion of our older mature cows due to age, so we are replacing them with these fancy ladies.
Next year, we expect just as nice, if not better females from our herd! We used a new brangus bull on one herd that has produced some super gentle, fleshy blacks and a set of bulls on our baldies that have produced beautiful slicked off baldies. Check back for photos of upcoming females that will be available for your front pasture this fall!!

Heifers HEIFERS!!! These pretty girls are just a sampling of the replacement heifers that will be available to purchase this fall.
They are off our best growing, fertile cows. These heifer’s mamas have produced a calf every year since we purchased them in 2009.
The heifers off these mamas have always been gentle and easy keepers that have great milk and raise excellent beef calves for us.

I know the national beef storage has everyone on edge. Because of that, we have been getting a lot of calls and emails for beef. While we have 70 steers on the ground, they are not big enough to process yet. Bobby and I are kicking around the idea of selling whole steers this year. If you only want a half, we might be able to get you together with someone that is only wanting a half as well. The steers would not be ready for processing until December. Who is interested?

So let’s talk Super American!! Here is the bull we just got from SVF and the females are mixed in with commercial brangus in the other photos.
The Super American adds more hybrid vigor to our herd! It is a brangus and Santa Gertrudis cross. I love the depth, the muscle and the color of these cattle. Both the brangus and Santa Gertrudis breeds go back to a Brahman; which if you know anything about our farm, you know we LOVE the Brahman breed.
We will mate this bull with a herd of straight black cows that show a little more angus than any of our other cattle. They are a large framed, older herd which is a must for this bull because his birth weight was 107!!! This herd usually weans on average a 725+ pound calf, so we look forward to seeing what this bull will do across these ladies.
We have kept heifers off this herd every year in the past. They have proven to be fertile and raise really nice calves just like their mamas. So with this bull, I hope to see beautiful, full bodied, great milking heifers.

This week of Thanksgiving, I am going to introduce you to our new Bulls and what Bobby and I have in mind for the future of our farm since ending the grass-fed beef business.
Meet two other bulls we just purchased from the Salacoa Valley Farms Fall Sale. These are yearling Bulls, which means they are only a year old. Most of the bulls SVF sold Saturday were coming 2 year old bulls. These young guys are going across our four year old cows from DCJ Ranch. The DCJ’s are fertile, loaded with hybrid vigor and just plain pretty!
We bought these bulls with maternal qualities and growth in mind. While they are still young, check out the butts and girth on them!! They still have a lot of growing to do and we hope they stay in our program for a while.

Our Story

Our farm began the year after Bobby and Jennifer were married in 2004. For the first 5 years deGraan Farms was just a cow calf operation, selling to the commercial feed lots. In 2009, we started deGraan Farms Grass-Fed Beef. The grass-fed Beef business allowed us to capture the end product of our beef production. Over 10 years, we tweaked our program, putting a lot of emphasis on that end product. Hybr Vigor was our focus. We bought cows that had a Brahman base, bred to Herefords, and then those offspring were bred to Angus or Brangus bulls. The end product was a beautiful super baldy or a slicked off Brangus type cow!

As our beef business bloomed, so did the popularity of our heifers we were producing. In 2018, we decided to end the beef business for various reasons; mainly, the cost of production was out weighing our desire to keep processing our beef. So, today, we are using that knowledge of the end beef product to produce other farmers a top of the line, beef producing heifer.

deGraan Farm’s focus is Hybr Vigor first, fertility and longevity second, and beef quality third. Our cattle also meet high temperament standards. We had young boys the first 10 years of running our farm, so we know what it means to be able to walk thru your pastures with the cows, working cows as a family, and the safety of everyone around those cattle. We want our knowledge and genetics to run thru our heifers.
