L BAR W CATTLE COMPANY
ELITE HEREFORD GENETICS. FOCUSING ON QUALITY WITH PERFORMANCE
We are located in the beautiful Stillwater River valley, near the northeast flank of the Beartooth Mountains, just north of the small town of Absarokee, Montana. We operate on about 4000 acres of deeded and leased ground. The ranch headquarters lie along the Stillwater River, known for its fly fishing and whitewater rafting.
Our goal is to produce balanced Hereford genetics for the commercial cattleman. For the past couple of years we have invested in top bloodlines from Cooper Herefords and Holden Herefords, the top Line One herds in the U.S., along with top end Hereford genetics from Churchill Cattle Company. We are breeding for traits that are not only important to the Hereford breed, but to the cattle industry as a whole; calving ease, low birth weights, high weaning and yearling weights, pigment and carcass.
As America’s cow herd expands, the need for quality replacement females will only grow. We plan to focus on this market segment and therefore our program will focus on the maternal side as well. Females need to have good udders, fleshing ability, fertility and be a good mama. Line One genetics offer the predictability of these traits.
