Pleasant Hill Farms


Pleasant Hill Farms has had registered Angus cattle since 1972. We began to really focus our concentration on herd improvement in 1990. We are a total performance herd that utilizes production, maternal, carcass, and ultrasound trait EPDs. We also make use of ultrasound carcass data and individual performance. Carcass data from slaughtered progeny of our own sires is also a contributing factor in our selection process. Good old common sense is a major part of our selection criteria. An animalís body condition score, calving interval and longevity are economically important traits that we pay close attention to. We strive to produce structurally and reproductively sound, efficient beef cattle that anyone would be proud to own.


Our goal is to provide the commercial cattle producer bulls that will sire calves that will come unassisted, hit the ground growing and will finish with a premium carcass; in turn making a profit for the producer. In addition, we want the sisters to these bulls to be herd builders for us as well as anyone else that might own them.


Pleasant Hill Farms is located in Rockfield, Kentucky about 6 miles southwest of Bowling Green, Kentucky and just one-half mile off US 68/80.

We presently are running about 100 spring calving registered Angus cows and about 100 fall calving registered Angus cows. In addition, we have about 25 spring calving registered Hereford cows. We have females for sale private treaty at the farms in both June and in November. We sell used herd bulls private treaty as well.

We have a feeder calf alliance opportunity for Pleasant Hill Bull sired calves. We usually send our calves in June and in November. If you have feeder calves sired by one of our bulls and want to find out more about this program please just ask.

Annual Sale

Our bull sale is held on the first Thursday evening in March. We have been fortunate enough to establish working relationships with genetic partners Estes Cattle Company and Mills Angus. Each of these breeders will have bulls in the sale as well. The bulls have been raised under practical conditions with no creep feed. They will have had a growing ration from weaning to yearling. The growing ration consists of soy hull pellets and corn glutten as well as grass and hay. At that time, all of the bulls are weighed, measured, ultra sounded and semen tested then they are placed on a maintenance ration of soy hull pellets, corn gluten, grass and hay. All of the bulls offered for sale will be guaranteed breeders. Almost every bull will qualify for the Phase One Tobacco money and we will furnish the paperwork necessary to obtain these funds.

In addition, thanks to Pleasant Hill Farms bull customers, we will have 100 commercial replacement yearling heifers in the sale. Thank you to the Coopers and Estes for such an outstanding set of heifers. Each of these progressive beef cattle breeders has a name synonymous with integrity, quality and value. That is also what we are about.

Thank you for your interest in our Angus and Hereford breeding program. We are committed to providing the highest quality of beef cattle seedstock that will have the greatest value to our customers. We look forward to working with you. If we can be of any assistance please give us a call.
