Genetic decisions made today have a lasting effect upon a cowherd. Sire selection is possibly the most vital of these decisions. Since the mid 1960's, Irvine Ranch has utilized Artificial Insemination to bring the best genetics available to our herd. We feel 100% AI (no cleanup bulls) coupled with proper sire selection are the best tools available to develop genetics with improved profit potential for our customers.

19 Bulls on the current list were sold through the Irvine Ranch Annual Sale, the largest # bred by any single breeder in the United States. Numerous other bulls on the list derive from IR genetics. These industry leading Sires represent Irvine Ranch’s long standing dedication to breed cattle that add value to all segments of the beef industry.
