|Located in Arlington, Nebraska, J&C Simmentals is a family owned and operated Simmental cattle business. The herd was originally registered Angus and in 1972, Jay and Clark purchased six Angus cows from Wagonhammer Ranches that were AI’d Simmental. The boys (Jay and Clark) showed a steer and a heifer from that purchase at the first feeder calf show at AKSARBEN placing Reserve Champion with both. From there, part of the Angus females were AI’d Simmental and only the black ones were retained. Today, the base herd consists of 150 registered Simmental cows and 20 Angus cows. Over the years, J&C Simmentals have enjoyed success with progeny including J&C Black Maximizer, J&C Black Minivan, J&C Bullet and many others.
J&C Simmentals focuses on selecting and breeding for high performance bulls for the commercial cattleman. Our bulls, along with bulls from partnering Simmental breeders, are housed at J&C for five months prior to the sale. The bulls must meet certain performance benchmarks in order to be sold in the J&C bull sale. We host our annual bull sale every year on the last Saturday of January in West Point, NE at West Point Livestock.
J&C Simmentals also host an online female sale in November. While the focus is on high performing bulls, our females do not fall short while out on pasture. Our females are bred to raise calves that will add pounds and outperform others in the feedlot or raise the next great sire.
Thank you for visiting our site and please feel free to stop by any time for a tour through the herd and some quality cattle discussion!
