American Aberdeen cattle are easy calving, good natured cattle that are very feed efficient and maintain themselves on grass. They have excellent taste, texture and tenderness beef characteristics and exceptional ribeye area per hundred pounds of body weight which translates to very high yielding, high quality, high value beef carcasses.
American Aberdeen cattle answer the challenges of both the large scale rancher and the small acreage farmers.

WHEN TO USE A LEASE AGREEMENT
If a breeder uses another breeder’s bull for an entire breeding season, the bull owner should fill out a lease form to the breeder that used the bull. This does not change the legitimate ownership of said bull but allows the person who leased the bull to register calves that resulted from those breeding dates anytime in the future without getting a Natural Service Breeding Statement for every cow.
If the producer does not fill out the lease form, then anytime in the future when a resulting calf needs to be registered, a Natural Service Breeding Statement will be required. The Lease form mitigates a great deal of hassle for multiple registrations for both the bull owner and the breeder needing to register resulting calves.
For future reference the Lease Agreement Form is located under Member Resources. | Get the Lease Agreement Form here
