​JB Boulder
​This 2014 100% MG dark grey bull has been leased for fall 2015, fall 2016 and spring 2017.  We have seen this gentle bull produce some beautiful uniform calves over the last 2 years and we expect great things from him for our future calf crop.  Leased locally.

​Often times beef cattle are difficult to manage because of their disposition.  Murray Greys are well known for being gentle.  Boulder's owner says that he has the disposition of a labrador.
​Not a mini by any means, these cows are typically 1000 - 1500 lbs and bulls 1800 - 2500 lbs.  Our mature cows are in the 1000-1300 lb range.
​Developed in Austrailia in 1905 - 1918 by breeding a roan Shorthorn cow with black Aberdeen Angus bulls.  The grey calves from that original cow were favored in the predominately Angus area.
Colors, ​colors, colors...
​Purebred Murray Grey cattle can range from light silver (Cleo) to black in color.  White patches above the belly disqualify purebred animals from registration.  The skin is dark (see the nose)-- which helps prevent eye and nose cancers.
​​​Registered Percentage Murray Grey cattle can be any color.  One parent must be registered to qualify for registration. A 7/8 Murray Grey can qualify for purebred registration if they qualify with all the color and skin requirements.
