Bulls for Sale
At Spring Valley Ranches, commercial Charolais bull sales are undoubtedly our bread and butter – and it has been for over 20 years. We strive to develop excellent bulls that are low birthweight, vigorous at calving, growth and performance minded, carcass oriented, masculine yet attractive, stout, fertile, functional, gentle, and structurally sound. At weaning, every bull must pass a rigorous multi-point evaluation to ensure that he will develop to these high standards. We raise our bulls in large traps on coastal bermudagrass, coastal hay, and a mixed corn and roughage ration designed for moderate rates of gain and minimal excess fat cover. We expect our bulls to excel on our customer’s pasture.
We typically offer over 35 bulls per year by private treaty or through consignment sales. Each set of bulls (fall or spring born) reaches “sales” age between 12 and 14 months, and we hope to have them to customers by 18 months of age. We believe that buying bulls younger offers tremendous advantages in terms of libido (bulls need to “learn” on the job as early as possible), soundness (older bulls will fight and injure each other), and adaptability (you can finish bulls to suit in your own environment). We encourage customers to come out and make their selections early – even if they wish to leave bulls with us for further development. You can purchase with confidence based on our 20+ year reputation, and our guarantees for fertility (one breeding season) and structural soundness (one year). Our motto of “striving towards excellence” applies to your purchase experience, as we strive to offer excellent customer service.
We believe in the statements that “a good bull is the smartest investment a cowman can make,” and that “a bull is half of your calf crop if he’s good, and all of it if he’s not.” These serve as a guiding principle in our bull selection, development, sales, and service efforts, and we see it as our responsibility to find the right bull for your operation.
