Our Cattle

Cougar Hollow Ranch is a boutique breeding operation committed to providing the best quality bulls to the commercial cattleman. We work hard to raise Black Angus bulls with physical soundness, proven growth traits, and meat quality. CHR has a limited number of registered bulls available for purchase.

Each year, CHR strives to retain the best heifers from our herd and purchase select females to enhance it. We use AI techniques utilizing the Heat Watch system to bring in the top quality genetics from the Angus breed and insure high success rates in our breeding program. We select top quality bulls that provide low birth weights and high growth spreads at weaning and yearling ages. Through balance breeding with our herd cows, we strive to produce sound heifers and bulls that bring balance in the genetic and physical traits.

Calves are raised on site with a prescribed feeding program so we can monitor their growth and weight gain. As prescribed by the American Angus Association, one year ultrasound tests evaluate rib-eye size and marbling which allows us to evaluate not only growth, but the meat quality of the future offspring. Culling is an important part of ensuring the best breeding stock are available. We are selective in the future herd bulls that we raise. It’s an investment for us and if you choose to make our bulls a part of your herd, we want you to be completely confident that you are getting the best. Whether you’re holding calves through the feedlot, or weaning and selling, CHR bulls will provide you with the genetics to be successful.

Our bulls are easily handled, but not bridal trained. While we want our bulls to be manageable, we believe there should always be a healthy respect between man and bull and vice versa. Some of our bulls are raised with powerful growth traits and would make excellent choices for cross breeding with charolais or Brangus breeds.
