Business Practices

The goal, at Maplecrest Farms, is to combine excellent phenotype with superior EPDs in the same package. We believe the genetics we are using give us the best possible opportunity to produce structurally correct, eye-appealing cattle that grow efficiently, yield carcasses that fit a value-added marketing system, and still retain the maternal superiority that made the Angus female the standard by which all are compared.

We believe it is important to use the data and technology available through the American Angus Association when comparing animals within a given population. Current DNA technology allows us to identify superior genetics as well as genetic defects and use this information within the guidelines established by the American Angus Association to continue to make progress within our herd as well as the Angus breed.

We are not afraid to utilize different bloodlines to take us to the next level. However, we will not use outdated or substandard genetics out of fear or uncertainty. We cannot retain the confidence of our customers by compromising our program.
