About Us

Patrick and Ada Gardiner started their Angus herd with five bred heifers purchased from the J & B Angus herd of Bob and Hollyce Neumeyer in 1994. We give thanks for all of the wonderful friends we have made over the years as we build our herd and realize that what Angus customers really want in a bull or heifer is a healthy, productive animal that will maximize the value of the herd. That means to us that the customer is first looking for trust. He or she wants ease in calving, performance, good disposition and of course, carcass quality in the cowherd. After all, this is a business, and quality means profit.

Our breeding philosophy concentrates on targeting genetics through the use and analysis of epds (expected progeny differences,) together with DNA testing which provides even greater accuracy.

Our goal is to produce high-quality, balanced genetics for commercial and purebred breeders. We strive to breed performance and carcass traits into our cattle as much as possible Without giving up the “must haves” – fertility, function, phenotype, and calving-ease. By using the best sires in the industry in combination with our quality female base and top-end donors, we will continue to advance our breeding program for predictable genetics with guaranteed customer satisfaction being our highest priority.

We welcome private treaty sales. Come visit us at the ranch, or feel free to give us a call and discuss what we can do to your herd.

We found Clarity among a strong flush of embryo brothers in the 2023 Connealy Spring sale and he just stood out phenotypically, with excellent depth, soundness and balance, with a long, deep, square hip, and good on the numbers, too. We are really looking forward to his contributions to our herd next year.
