At Bradley 3 Ranch, we pride ourselves on our cattle's superior genetics, stemming from strong maternal lines, generations of selective breeding, and innovative practices. Our cattle are self-sufficient and able to thrive in the most demanding environments. The hardiness of our stock is not just about physical endurance, but adaptability, resilience, and efficiency.
Whether you are buying cows or bulls, choosing cattle from Bradley 3 Ranch means investing in a legacy of genetic excellence and sustainable ranching.

We're on a mission to help ranch and cattle operations of all sizes increase the performance and output of their herds with genetics that drive more net return with less input.
Bigger isn't always better. Our cows are the optimum size for calving and weaning ease in any condition.
We make data-driven decisions, looking at weight measurements, gain on grass, along with EPD and pedigree.
Our cattle thrive in any condition from the toughest, with minimal forage and hard weather, to the best.
We have high expectations for our cows, from shorter breeding seasons to generational longevity.
I used B3R Landslide semen, good breed up, baby calves had real good vigor, and when I ultra-sounded the yearlings there ratio way above my herd average for marbling on very limited grain!
In reviewing our records, the calves out of your bulls starting in 2015, our cost per cow dropped 31%, and pounds weaned per cow improvements by 13%.
The bred heifers we bought from Bradley 3 Ranch are the fanciest heifers in SW Kansas!
We were culling cows, when we got down to the ones we kept, they all went back to B3R genetics!
This is our 19th bull to buy from B3R, they just work.
We have bought bulls from various breeders over the years, but the B3R bulls will consistently out last the other bulls.
These bulls can travel, cover the cows, and they are gentle to work, and the calves are so nice.
These bulls are working in our environment, at first I was not sure since they do not have the big EPD's, but now that I have purchased bulls over the last 8 years, they exceed the other big EPD bulls.
All of our steer calves graded Choice or Prime out of the Bradley bulls.
Just as we are accountable for our ranch's success, we are committed to the impact of our cattle's behavior, genetics, and abilities on our herd's quality and prosperity.
By diligently managing these factors, we ensure our cattle uphold the standards of the Bradley 3 Ranch brand.
