Following the original Hereford and Shorthorn cross commercial cattle
raised by the Malm family, a purebred Hereford herd was begun in 1950
followed by the addition of purebred Angus,
South Devon and
herds in the 1980s and 1990s. These
purebred herds were used to develop the present-day Best of All
Worlds breed we call Carcass
different, four-breed purebred composites produced from the purebred
breeds from our nucleus herds through the use of AI and embryo
transplant genetics from the breed-leading sires and dams of each of
these respective breeds. We
formulated Carcass Masters
to address the paramount need of the beef industry to produce high
quality, consistent beef for our beef-eating consumers from a highly
maternal, performance oriented, trouble-free, beef animal.
To produce Carcass Masters
we have been gathering
carcass data on all the breeds we produce for the past 30 years and
have incorporated the genetics of only those bulls that sire exceptional
quality and yield grade carcasses.
Since both quality grade and yield grade are highly heritable
qualities, we have seen the progeny of several of our sires now
approaching our goal of 100% Choice and Prime, Yield Grade 1 and 2
carcasses (a utopia unheard of in the old line purebred breeds).
Add to this carcass superiority the 75% to 90% retained
heterosis obtained by breeding four to six-breed composites as a
purebred breed and you do have the Best of All Worlds without the
nightmare of managing a viable rotational crossbreeding system
(involving at least three separate breeds of bulls and six or more
All sires' progeny are tested through Great Western Beef Expo, Coleman Natural Beef or the Decatur County Feedlot testing program.
