NACA Corriente Cattle Shine in the SouthEast

PCA-logoNorth American Corriente Association breeders were asked to supply the team roping cattle for the Professional Cowboys Finals Rodeo and the Dixie National Quarter Horse Show!

NACA breeders and stock contractors, Douglas Dale of Dale Cattle Co. and Tony Wilson of 4W Corrientes,  supplied the cattle for the 20th annual PCFR held in Biloxi, Mississippi January 16th-19th, 2015.  The top 15 headers & heelers from the Southeast as well as the top 15 competitors in the other rodeo events battled it out for the title of CHAMPION.

The Unique Corriente Breed
Corriente cattleCorrientes are raised primarily for sports cattle, while preserving such natural attributes as high fertility, early maturity, trouble-free calving, and foraging efficiency, as well as disease and parasite resistance. This unique breed differs greatly in conformation, behavior and hardiness from cattle raised only for meat. Most of the production problems experienced by today’s cattlemen are a result of increasing size and weight in order to fit the current commodity market. Corrientes remain untainted by the manipulative animal husbandry which has affected and weakened many domestic animals. Continue reading

I hope everyone has gotten off to a super 2013 and that the weather is treating you right!!

We have been very blessed with some significant rainfall, high cattle prices and strong demand for Corriente in our Texas hometown. That’ why I’m writing this literary masterpiece …

High School Rodeos, Roping or Bulldogging you hear the same complaint… that the cattle are old and worn out.

Why? The demand for good stock far outweighs the supply.
The great demand and high prices have caught most of us by surprise because it really has happened fairly quickly.
