Gordon Jamison and sons presented the family’s annual bull sale at their headquarters located in the big ranch country of western Kansas near Quinter. Jamison’s is a cowherd program built upon the principles of performance testing, linebreeding and elite cow families. A volume selection of performance balanced, linebred, bulls strong in cowherd traits is the trademark of the JA brand.
Something that was very well received and noted was the eye pigmentation code on every bull. The Jamisons have been selecting and breeding for eye pigmentation and it has paid off. Also in the sale offering were several bulls from guest consignors and herd bull partners. These bulls had been developed and managed along side the Jamison bulls and carried the same guarantee.
