A Decade of Accomplishments

Bulls of the Big Sky was created in 2009 by a small group of Simmental breeders with similar genetics and a vision to combine their efforts and market their animals on a larger scale. Ten years later, we are stronger than ever with outstanding genetics and a reputation of top tier customer service and satisfaction.

Here are some of our accomplishments and examples of our quality bulls:

  • Koch Big Timber 685D purchased by Select Sires and a group of breeders
  • RYMO Power Surge G39D purchased by TNT Simmentals and ABS
  • PLR Idealistic 183C purchased by Slayton Farms and marketed by AGR
  • Sell to 20 states and Canada
  • Satisfied repeat customers
  • Cost-effective bulls for volume buyers
  • Proud member of the AGR Marketing alliance

SIMMENTAL AND SIMANGUS - RED AND BLACK

Bulls of the Big Sky is proud to feature the finest premium registered Simmental, SimAngus, and Angus bulls for sale.  We partner with 6 breeders to provide customers with the best available selection of SimGenetics.  View our individual bulls below or contact us for more information.

With seven breeders from the Big Sky region and with over 300 years of combined experience breeding Montana bulls for sale, the families of the Bulls of the Big Sky have joined forces to provide customers with advanced genetic value and outstanding customer service.  While we may have a few new names to our membership, their history and involvement in the Simmental world is long and vast.

We develop our bulls together at Veltkamp Bull Development in Manhattan, MT starting in early October.  They are fed a forage based ration designed to develop the bulls to last and survive the rugged Western environments.  Structure, feet, and disposition are regularly scrutinized by non-member panels.  Please feel free to stop by and visit the bulls at anytime during the feeding period.
