Gable L Ranch is located in southern Utah 40 miles east of Bryce canyon National park and in the heart of the Grand Staircase Escalante National Monument.
Our goal is to provide superior angus breeding stock through genetic testing.
Here at Gable L Ranch we are building a herd of pure breed Angus cattle for real world cattle men and women.
Our family has raised cattle in the Escalante Valley for well over 100 years.
We have an outstanding herd of old time Herford based cattle, but wanted to achieve some heterosis by outcrossing so we pursued the best Angus cattle we could find primarily from Utah and Oklahoma and absolutely fell in love with the Angus breed, and as we all know by taking advantage of artificial insemination we can get genetics from anywhere in the world to manage and develop traits in our herds.
Gable L Ranch provides seed stock Bulls, Heifers, calves and bred cows to our customers, every animal we offer has been genomic “PF 50” tested to ensure parentage and trait qualities and we guarantee and genomic test for most genetic defects.
We feel this added measure adds value and helps our customers make the best informed and educated analysis when selecting sires and females from us.
Many of our herd sires and cows have been feed efficiency tested at the “Profit Maker Bull” genetic evaluation center in Paxton Nebraska, the difference between expected and actual feed consumption are called Residual Feed Intake (RFI) Negative RFI Animals are the Efficient ones! Feed efficiency is HIGHLY HERITABLE, All of ours that are tested are negative RFI.
In most cases we will deliver within a couple hundred miles, it gives us a chance to get out of our small town and visit with great cattle people.
We have been told many times that we don’t charge enough for our cattle, we feel a fair price based on our cost is the best approach to offer value to our partners, and that’s our goal to become your partner.
