Muridale Touchdown is clicking with our cows to prove that he
is a true performance sire. He weighed 2,500 pounds on fall
pasture after the 2011 breeding season and is siring steers that
really press down the scales.

Our calves are NOT creep fed— they are raised on momma’s
milk and grass only. Their weaning weights in Oct. are as follows:
