Traits you can't get anywhere else. A Barzona bull will keep his cows gathered in a tight group.
Barzona cattle have a deeper set to their eye socket, and have coloration that keeps pink eye from forming.
Alvin & Karen Havens started their herd in 1989. Barzonas were specifically chosen because of their maintenance free operation, and overall profitability. Alvin was too busy for babysitting heavy calvers and pinkeye. Karen runs her own accounting firm and knows what it takes to make money on the farm. Alvin & Karen strive to keep their herd producing under worry free management.
Alecia Heinz, Alvin & Karen's daughter, now keeps the records on the cattle herd, and her husband Matthew brings 6 generations of family farming and cattle background to the operation. They have purchased and raised their own Barzonas, and also try different crossbreedings to provide data for commercial producers.
