Pleasant Hill Farms
Pleasant Hill Farms has had
registered Angus cattle since 1972. We began to really focus our
concentration on herd improvement in 1990. We are a total performance herd with a
focus on phenotype and genotype combined. We use production,
maternal, carcass and value added EPDs. We make use of
ultrasound carcass data, individual performance an d DNA test
We also make use of ultrasound
carcass data and individual performance. Carcass data from
slaughtered progeny of our own sires is also a contributing
factor in our selection process. Good old common sense is a
major part of our selection criteria. An animal’s body condition
score, calving interval and longevity are economically important
traits that we pay close attention to. We strive to produce
structurally and reproductively sound, efficient beef cattle
that anyone would be proud to own.
Our goal is to blend phenotypic, genetic
and performance superiority into a product that will be sought
after by purebred and commercial beef producers alike. We will
provide the commercial beef cattle producer bulls that will sire
calves that will come unassisted, hit the ground growing and
will finish with a premium carcass. The sisters of these bulls
will be herd builders for us and anyone else that might own
them. In addition, our genetics will be desirable to our fellow
purebred breeders and help them advance their respective
Pleasant Hill Farms is located in
Rockfield, Kentucky about 6 miles southwest of Bowling Green,
Kentucky and just one-half mile off US 68/80. We presently are running about
50 spring calving registered Angus cows and about 50 fall
calving registered Angus cows.
We have a feeder calf alliance opportunity for Pleasant Hill
bull sired calves. We usually send our calves in June and in
November. If you have feeder calves sired by one of our bulls
and want to find out more about this program, please just ask.
Our early "March Madness Bull Sale" is held the last
Saturday in February. The bulls have been raised under
practical conditions and will have had a growing ration from
weaning to yearling. They are then placed on a maintenance
ration until they are sold. All of the bulls are weighed, measured,
ultra sounded and semen tested then they are placed on a
maintenance ration of soy hull pellets, corn gluten, grass and
hay. All of the bulls offered for sale will be guaranteed
breeders. Almost every bull will qualify for the Phase One
Tobacco money and we will furnish the paperwork necessary to
obtain these funds. In addition, thanks to Pleasant Hill Farms
bull customers, we will have 100 commercial replacement yearling
heifers in the sale. Thank you to the Coopers and Estes for such
an outstanding set of heifers. Each of these progressive beef
cattle breeders has a name synonymous with integrity, quality
and value. That is also what we are about.
The "Sweet Sixteen Annual OnLine Heifer Calf Sale" is
held the last Saturday in April. This sale features fall born
heifer calves and genetic lots of embryos and semen.
“The Beginning Is Now…….” is our
annual female production sale held the third Monday of October
each year. The sale is the source for fancy open spring born
heifer calves, dynamic bred heifers and impact making cows with
fall born calves.
Thank you for your interest in our Angus, SimAngus, and
program. We are committed to providing the highest quality of
beef cattle seed stock that will have the greatest value to our
customers. We look forward to working with you. If we can be of
any assistance, please give us a call.
