Thank you for visiting our website. Melroe Farms has been in the beef business for over a century and has been advertising seedstock for sale since the first half of the 1900’s. Over that time large scale operations have come and gone as they gain popularity by following the latest trend in the beef business. Why are we still here? We feel it is because we adapt and incorporate pieces of what has worked, regardless of the times. It is our philosophy that by incorporating several of these components that we can market seedstock with the highest level of confidence that they will perform for their new customers. While breeding cattle is never easy, and a true cattle breeder will never be satisfied we have distilled our core beliefs into three main areas.
- Proven Quality – Visual selection may be the most primitive means of cattle improvement, but we find it critical. Even as the industry moves to data driven decisions, we will not sacrifice visual excellence because we understand a vast majority of marketing still occurs with the eye and the scale. We don’t just talk about it, but have proven it.
- Documented Performance – We feel like the only way to prove to ourselves and have complete confidence in our recommendations is to measure what we are doing. We have committed to providing large contemporary groups where ChiAngus sires must compete with the most proven and popular Angus bulls in the business. We have the numbers to prove they do!
- Chianina Influence – Last we do not deny nature, heterosis is real and it works. We have chosen this avenue because of the large influence provided by the diversity of the Chi gene. Planned composite breeding programs are sustainable and most importantly profitable.
