For the past 30 years, the Sawyers' main priority has been to produce thrifty, maintenance free cattle that can thrive under Nebraska Sandhills range conditions. The cow herd consists of 600 registered and commercial Angus cows that run just like cows on other ranch operations in the area.
The cow herd is summered on native grass pastures and wintered on nearby crop residue stalk fields. The A & B cow herd has evolved in this Sandhills ranch environment and are bred to thrive on the forages nature provides. Calves are not creep fed and cows are not supplemented while on pasture, thus providing the most accurate data on a cow's individual performance. Any cows that do not wean a big calf consistently or are reproductively inferior are automatically culled. This rigid selection process is reflected in females that are deep-sided and broody and bulls that are thick-made, fast-gaining, and maintenance free.
