Success Stories

The Rowlett Family (Duck River Farm) from Hurrican Mills, TN purchased several females from us from 2005 - 2008. Their offspring made a dynamic showing at the 2015 NJAS Bred and Owned Heifer Show. Congratulations Lawson Rowlett on:
Class Winner June 2014 heifer calf
sire by Bushwacker, out of McCurry Erica cow family

2nd place Dec. Heifer Calf
sired by McCurry Bismark 2095, out of the McCurry Royal Lady cow family

2nd place March 2014 heifer calf
full sister to the December calf

4th place Feb. 2014 heifer calf
sired by SAV Bismark, out of the McCurry Blackcap cow family


Heath and Brooke Bergkamp and Luke Doris bought a female in 2005.  She was also shown successfully, claiming division honors at numerous ROV shows.  But that rewarding investment raised a heifer calf this year that was sold for more than the original purchase price and then went on to win Division 1 at the NJAS in Pennsylvania. She was owned and shown by John Jacobs.

 

 

McCurry Angus females, now numbering almost 200, trace back to six cow family lines that Andy and Mary combined upon their marriage. For the first 25 years, with the exception of two females purchased for John & Emily, the female line remained a “closed herd”. No outside females were introduced until the past 5 years. The result is a close-relatedherd of uniform females.

The labor force of this operation consisted of the family for the first 26 years: Andy, Mary, John & Emily. With both Andy & Mary having professional careers and working off the farm, the herd was managed much like any commercial herd. Cattle had to survive and perform on their own. The focus has been on females –the key to any successful breeding program, as reproductive traits are ten times more important on an economic scale than any other value indicator. McCurry females are bred to be high volumed, easy fleshing, moderate sized, with excellent udder quality, longevity, fertility and a quiet disposition. These convenient traits that do not show upon EPDs.

We opened our herd up for the first time in 2005 and offered choice of all our fall-born heifer calves at our first-ever “Pursuit of the Purple” Open House/Silent Auction sale on April 29, 2005. The result was fantastic!  Posting a $5,000 average, these heifers have continued to perform for their new owners. 26 head of McCurry Angus females were exhibited at the 2005 National Junior Angus Show by 13 exhibitors. Out of these 26, came three division championships, four class winners, and seven seconds. Many stood in the Top 5 at the NJAS!
