a herd of Crosswind Ranch angus cows

Our herd of registered Angus and Angus composite mama cows consists of functional and docile females who are structurally sound, big-bodied and exhibit the maternal and carcass characteristics the Angus breed is known and respected for. We continue to invest in genetic improvements throughout our herd and seek to implement the best management practices possible for the sustainability and longevity of our cattle. Jason is a Beef Quality Assurance (BQA) certified cow/calf producer. 

The goal of the cattle program at Crosswind Ranch is to produce affordable show steers and heifers for 4-H and FFA youth interested in a beef cattle project. We are passionate about helping advance the agricultural lifestyle for generations to come and know that these youth will be tomorrow’s agricultural leaders. 

With the goal of producing show steers and heifers to compete in major livestock shows across the state and nation, we have introduced Angus and club calf genetics to our herd through artificial insemination.

KBW Lady Blue Bonnet

Bluebonnet is an ET heifer out of C&C Priority 1428B EXAR, the sire of the 2015 National Junior Angus Show Grand Champion Female. Her dam is the ultra-feminine and deep bodied PVF Missie 1148 from the elite Prairie View Farms in Gridley, Illinois. We are expecting big things from Bluebonnet and can’t wait to see her first calf hit the ground in 2021.

PVF Surveillance 4129

Surveillance is a highly esteemed registered Angus bull from Prairie View Farms. We expect him to add power and show-worthy eye appeal to our functional cow herd. To produce show quality heifers that will have added value beyond the show ring, we used female sexed semen from Surveillance for our 2020 calf crop.

In God We Trust

One of Horn Livestock’s finest club calf sires, In God We Trust is a super-powerful, deep-bodied Charolais-cross who, despite his muscularity, maintains structural soundness. We look forward to seeing him add bone, muscle, and hair to our 2020 calf crop and will market his bull calves as show steers and females as replacement heifers once they arrive.
