Many of our Angus producer friends have asked "Why Lowines?"

  • Lowline Angus Composites are EFFICIENT!!!

  • They are a perfect fit for grass-fed beef.  Drop cow size 20-25%, OR 400 POUNDS, in one generation.

  • Lowlines ARE Angus--with smaller frame--while retaining all the beef advantages of Angus, particularly on grass!  In these tough economic times, the smaller cow proves to be worth her
    weight in gold, with variable weather conditions, poor pasture conditions, and High Feed Costs!

  • Use a Lowline Angus bull for ALL first calf heifers and no worry at calving!  FIVE years of 100% live calves using Lowline Angus bulls  at 'Cross Creek Farms!   In cow/calf production, this rarely
    happens!

  • There is a very real place for percentage Lowlines in the commercial cattle business!  At 'Cross Creek Farms, our track record proves it, with 83.3% graded choice, and 100% YG 1's and 2's!!!!

  • A fullblood Lowline Angus bull crossed with some darn good, big 1700# - 2000# Angus cows yield halfblood Lowline Angus and super cows--look like Angus in the 1950's and 1960's!  At age 4,
    these cows will weigh 1100# to 1400#,  frame score 4-5, and they are really  wide bodies.  There's the BEEF!

  • Could you benefit from a 40% increase in retail product per acre?  Lowline Angus will do that,  primarily due to higher stocking rate and higher percent retail product yield.

  • This higher than normal retail yield has been documented repeatedly by ultra sound measurements in the US and Australia that consistently show a 30% larger ribeye area per hundred weight,
    largest ratio of all breeds.

  • This has translated into a boneless retail product yield of 20 to 30% more retail product per hundred weight of carcass in preliminary totally boned out product testing here in the US.

  • It comes down to more dollars of profit, and that works for everyone!

Lowline Cattle ~ Matching Calving Ease with Value on the Rail

North Dakota State University
Dickinson Research Extension Center

A recent 3 year study ending in 2006, finds good results for matching calving
ease with red meat production
using Lowline bulls.

Commercial heifers were bred to Lowline bulls for calving ease--
only 3 calves out of 125 needed minor assistance.

These steers were sent to commercial feed yards with the above results (see chart).  The steers average weight for the thee year study           
was 1221 lbs., 51-52 inches  at the hip, and brought 92 cents per pound average.  
"These bulls produce small calves that grow."

"One can start to think of how these calves will fit into the ever-changing world of beef feeding. Energy sources are getting more                        
competitive, which ultimately may change some principles as to what works. There are many boxes of picture puzzles, so don't be                    
afraid to pick one, even if it is just a little outside the norm."
