In 1994 we purchased our farm of 110 acres and named it Benwoody in honor of Diane’s dad, Benjamin, who everyone called Ben and Wayne’s father, Woodrow, who went by Woody. Originally a row crop farm, over the years we converted Benwoody into a cattle farm that has grown to 258 acres for cattle and 403 acres for crops. Our home, barns, buildings, fences, and pastures have been designed and built in accordance with our long term objective: to have a comfortable, highly efficient, and aesthetically pleasing cattle farm. In 2000 we purchased two bred Registered Angus cows and began building our herd. At the end of 2009, we had grown our herd to 100 cows producing 65 calves a season plus a various assortment of steers being fed for harvest, yearling bulls, and replacement heifers. In 2010, we began crossbreeding using Simmental bulls and have SimAngus replacement heifers for sale. As of 2016, we have expanded our herd to 150 cows and heifers producing on average 130 calves a season.
We offer custom fed Angus locker beef, purebred Angus and SimAngus replacement heifers, and purebred Angus and SimAngus cow/calf pairs. We have a heavy emphasis on Artificial Insemination. Our replacement heifers are Artificially Inseminated with an emphasis on calving ease, weaning, and yearling scores (above herd average). Our goal is to provide the best well rounded off spring while also being efficient in production.
