Heifer Development Program
At NMHAY we also procure heifers that have been raised in the Southern New Mexico as part of our Heifer Development Program. We background all heifers in our feedlot for approximately 45 days and evaluate their overall disposition.
In our part of the Southwestern United states we run cattle in “Big Country.” This means that when we turn out bred heifers we need to be confident that they will be able to calve on their own and get to work quickly being a mama. It is for this reason that we use Brangus/Corriente cross bulls as sires in our heifer program.
With respect to our Heifer Development Program, our goal is simple. To develop heifers that will thrive in the Southwest and produce their first calf with ease.
