The Cedar Mesa cow herd is comprised of cows that do their job, functionality comes first. An emphasis has always been placed on balanced trait cattle, evident in predictable performance and phenotype. It is our goal to produce cattle that boost our customers’ profitability. The high elevation of the mountain states doesn’t allow for cattle that don’t excel at high altitude. Each year the entire calf crop is Pulmonary Arterial Pressure (PAP) Tested. Our diligence in PAP testing has resulted in every cow in the herd having been tested. Many Cedar Mesa bulls have been utilized in operations who run at elevations of 9,000 feet and above. We run our cattle like our customers do, this means our cows are expected to calve unassisted, in a foraged based system, and wean a heavy calf without creep feed.
