History of our Angus Herd
our angus herd's history
As a young cattleman, Bob started his career at Lemmon Cattle Enterprises in Georgia. At a production sale in 1986 he purchased his first Angus cow a Pathfinder cow, 057 and her daughter. The next day he bought Darlene an engagement ring and while shopping for it stated, “It’s ok I paid more than that for the cows.”
The rest is history.
This great cow and her offspring became the base for the Registered Angus herd that roams Mahoning Creek Farm today.
One other cow brought into our herd was from the South Branch Farm herd Bob managed and bred for nearly 20 years. Through a scholarship opportunity Morgan purchased the SBF cow from a bloodline she grew up with at SBF. She and her father carefully reviewed SBF genetics choosing the cow family they felt would be the best fit.
South Branch garnered the following Pennsylvania awards under Bob’s management: PA Cattleman’s Association Seedstock Producer of the Year, Stewardship Award, and Angus Family of the Year.
As you can tell the MCF Angus herd is what it is today because of a cattleman who always had a keen eye for Angus genetics.
Offspring from the herd also proved to be a great asset to Morgan and Garrett during their 4-H years. Their 4-H projects came from calves they were given at birth. Morgan garnered Champion Angus Steer at the Pennsylvania Farm Show, Supreme Champion Heifer at York County 4-H Fair among many other honors. Our hog man, Garrett showed two Angus and retired from cattle showing to the hog show ring.
