Central Kentucky Premier Heifer Sales Header

Welcome to Our Website

Join us for our upcoming sale on June 7th!

 

Welcome to the Central Kentucky Premier Heifer Sale Website. We hope you find the website useful in selecting quality replacement females, as well as a site to preview a select group of seed stock.

The CKPHS group organized in 2004 in an effort to market top quality replacement females produced in progressive herds in central Kentucky. Producers from Marion, Nelson and Washington counties joined efforts to insure a large group of heifers could be assembled and only the top females would be accepted into the sale. The group held its inaugural sale on June 4, 2005 with an offering of 156 females. Wehave continued to increase the number of cattle offered and currently market approximately 400 head per year through the sale. There are two premier heifer sales held each year. The first Saturday in June offers fall calving females with calving dates beginning September 1st. The second sale is held on the first Saturday in November featuring spring calving heifers with calving dates beginning February 1st.

Each female is screened by the Kentucky Department of Agriculture for quality, structure, attitude, and must pass a complete health and vaccination program. All heifers are reproductive track scored and pelvic measured prior to breeding. Many of the females are artificially inseminated to the top bulls in the angus breed. Each bull used must meet the "Heifer Acceptable" approved status to help insure a stress free calving season.

By working with the University of Kentucky beef specialist, extension agents, University and local veterinarians, along with Merial and Boehringer-Ingelheim Vetmedica, a program was established for quality and health that is second to none. It is our intention to provide you with a quality, productive female that will keep you in the cattle business. We look forward to the opportunity to earn your business and develop a long-term relationship built on trust and confidence in our program. We may not be the biggest, but our goal is to be the best.
