We are a family run operation that have been raising Charolais cattle for over 50 years and we are extremely passionate about it. Our mission is to consistently produce top quality Charolais bulls that add performance and value to herds of all breeds. Our program at HTA is built on years of carefully selected genetics and is just that...a program. We don’t follow fads. We stick to the basics of what Charolais should be – a performance breed. Our goal is to be in the business for a long time and we hold ourselves to a high level of honesty and integrity.
The fundamental building blocks of our program is our females. Years and years of strategic breeding and selection have built our current cowherd. We strive for mothers that are sound structured, efficient, fertile and motherly with good udders and good dispositions. Great bulls come from great cows. It starts with vigorous calves that are born unassisted and hit the ground and grow. Calving ease is a priority. Vigorous calves born unassisted IS calving ease. We prioritize unassisted born calves that are up in minutes looking to nurse their mothers.
We are continuously appraising the cows, bull and heifer pens and run a strict quality control program. We cull for many reasons to keep the quality high. We are proud of the progress we have made in our herd and the direction our program is headed. We invite you to come for a visit, tour the herd, and to talk cattle anytime. We enjoy the opportunity to visit with you about our program as well as your program. We know our cows and the bulls and you know your cows – together we can find the right bull to fit your herd. Our customers are the most important part of our business!
