“SGBI membership provides the foundation for building demand and increasing the value of Santa Gertrudis genetics. Over the past five-year period, the value of Santa Gertrudis cattle has increased due to association programs and activities.”
“My son-in-law, Scott Armstrong, and I run a smaller operation in Kentucky, and we have seen the benefits of being members of Santa Gertrudis Breeders International. SGBI has given us the tools to search for better genetics for our herd and help in finding what makes the end product for our customers the best we can raise and finish. The SGBI staff has worked with us on feed cost per pound of gain, discussed the benefits of having a purebred herd or STAR 5 herd and avenues to sell good genetics in the future, as well as the cattle that go into our finishing facility.
Today we graded six sides of beef, all graded Choice. This has been consistent with the beef that we are raising. SGBI’s tools and programs help us keep this level of consumer-pleasing quality.”
