At Ogeechee Angus, we share a simple philosophy.
Treat people the way you want to be treated, do the right thing regardless of who is watching and produce cattle that will ultimately progress the business of beef.
We understand as potential buyers, there are many opportunities to add Angus genetics to your cowherd. We would like to share with you information about our philosophy and programs in general. While anyone can claim to have a program, being disciplined enough to set goals and do what it takes to meet them is another endeavor completely.
The foundation of our business is balance (performance, phenotype and balanced-trait selection). We fully realize cow-calf profitability is dependent on reproductive efficiency and maternal ability. These two measures are of paramount importance to our programs. While type and kind is very important to us and other purebred breeders alike, our programs are centered on the premise that cattle of poor origin rarely rise to the top. We place strict criteria on end-product-merit and post weaning growth as these measures are essential for commercial producers who have interest in retained ownership situations. This represents the kind of balance that insures a wise genetic investment, not just a gamble on a fad that can change in years to come. In selecting genetics for our herds, we take great care in only adding cattle that will add to our genetic base and are profitable for our customers.
