High-Altitude Angus Cattle
Culver Cattle is Your Source for the Best High Altitude, All-Natural Angus...
Culver Cattle has dedicated over twenty years of developing
superior quality High Altitude Angus genetics. Through the years,
our 1,500 head cow herd has been maintained at two separate
locations. The replacement heifers and the registered cow herd have
been developed at Boulder Valley Farm, Lafayette, Colorado. The
mature commercial cow herd has resided at Owl Creek Ranch, Walden,
Due to the death of our founder Donald M. Culver (June 28, 2012), it was decided to disperse the Owl Creek Ranch cow herd. The dispersal sale was held November 1, 2012, at Owl Creek Ranch. The dispersal sale was deemed a success in light of the widespread drought which has plagued the area. Thirteen Hundred and Forty Three bred heifers and cows sold to 19 buyers in 6 states to net an average price of $1,633.00 per head.
The current Culver Cattle cow herd, numbering 200 head, resides at Boulder Valley Farm; the home of Donald and Rosalie Culver since 1961.
Culver Cattle will continue to move forward in the production of high-quality Angus genetics at a
reduced scale. Our focus has not changed! The cattle remaining in our herd are a concentration of genetically superior females and the proven herd sires that have accelerated our breeding program throughout the years!
Owl Creek Ranch will be utilized as a source of lease grazing and will continue to produce award-winning North Park grass hay. Hay for sale based on inventory.
Over the past two decades, Culver Cattle has been active in collecting feed conversion data as well as carcass quality results on feeder cattle that we have produced. To date, we have tracked thousands of cattle and the quality has improved in each generation. In a time with raising operating costs and feed in short supply, we are confident that our cattle have been developed to do more with less!
Generations of proven genetics have created a resilient herd of low maintenance and highly profitable cattle. We invite you to visit Boulder Valley Farm and check out the depth of our program.
The quality and consistency of the Culver herd has been made
possible with an aggressive artificial insemination program. We
will continue this practice with the use of Culver proven sires
along with sires which have been proven in the real
We've bred our cattle to be practical. We do not chase after any
one trait or trend, and produce cattle that work in a low input
setting. They eat grass in the summer and dry grass hay in the
winter. A good visual of our cattle: deep-bodied, medium frame,
easy fleshing with good feet and legs, quality udders.
We look forward to hearing from you...
