Partner with Us
Would you consider partnering with us?
Pat Kirk Angus is looking to partner with an operation that will continue the clean care that the calves have received in their first half of life. The Angus cattle finisher would not have to do the work that calving, weaning, and growing seasons bring, but would be given premium Angus calves to work with for improved final-product, beef sales.
Interested in avoiding that first load of work, wanting to start the growing season with well-established clean beef calves, or both? Give us a call!
