Gemstone Cattle Company specializes in commercial and purebred Hereford and Angus cattle. The Gemstone breeding program focuses on producing moderate frame, easy-keeping cows that
efficiently convert forage into beef. Our goal is to raise trouble free cattle that are well adapted to their environment. We strive to optimize rather than maximize production by raising cattle that are
profitable and that work for us and others who take advantage of Gemstone genetics.
Using our own genetics in our commercial cowherd and feeding our own calves through to finish in the feedlot we operate has given us a strong appreciation for the principle of optimizing production
To us, optimizing production traits means keeping the cowherd strong in fertility, longevity and easy keeping low maintenance characteristics.
Our goal is to raise trouble free cattle that efficiently meet the demands of the marketplace.
