Due to the expansion of our registered cattle herds we have sadly decided to disperse our Beemasters - However a wonderful family from Western Oklahoma has purchased the M3 Beefmasters - Thankyou to the Bill Barnett Family!!
Our original M3 Cows have been a work in progress since 2002. M3 Cattle started with crossbred cows and bred them to Lasater Foundation Beefmaster Bulls. We then retained our heifers. We have always strived to follow the "Lasater Philosophy of raising cattle" including the six essentials: disposition, fertility, weight, conformation, hardiness, and milk production.
In 2006, we purchased Carl Rondstat's cattle from south of Wilcox, AZ. We also purchased the G-Bar-G cows from Capitan, NM. All of these cows originated at one time from the Foundation Beefmasters. We combined these two great cow herds with our own cows and retained 80-90% of our heifers. Our cows were expected to breed back every year within 90 days, on a ranch which ran 6 cows per 640 acres and where waters were up to 1.5 miles apart. If our cows did not breed back or lost a calf for any reason they were culled.
The best of these cows daughters (ages 2-5) were then moved to Oklahoma during the drought of 2011-2013. The Beefmaster cows are now crossed with 100% Black Irish Bulls. Our goal is to run a self-sustainable ranch/ farm that can coexist with our environment while producing cattle that will demand a premium in todays cattle industry. We expect our cows, heifers and bulls to perform with what natures provides for them. We do not believe in over feeding or over supplementing our cattle. We run an all natural herd and raise all natural beef that can get finished out on grass or explode in growth at the bunk.
