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 with a focus on phenotype and genotype combined.  We use production, maternal, carcass and value added EPDs.  We make use of ultrasound carcass data, individual performance an d DNA test results.

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 animal’s 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 blend phenotypic, genetic and performance superiority into a product that will be sought after by purebred and commercial beef producers alike. We will provide the commercial beef cattle producer bulls that will sire calves that will come unassisted, hit the ground growing and will finish with a premium carcass.  The sisters of these bulls will be herd builders for us and anyone else that might own them.  In addition, our genetics will be desirable to our fellow purebred breeders and help them advance their respective operations.


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 50 spring calving registered Angus cows and about 50 fall calving registered Angus cows.

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 Sales

Our early "March Madness Bull Sale" is held the last Saturday in February. The bulls have been raised under practical conditions and will have had a growing ration from weaning to yearling. They are then placed on a maintenance ration until they are sold. 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.

The "Sweet Sixteen Annual OnLine Heifer Calf Sale" is held the last Saturday in April. This sale features fall born heifer calves and genetic lots of embryos and semen.

“The Beginning Is Now…….” is our annual female production sale held the third Monday of October each year.  The sale is the source for fancy open spring born heifer calves, dynamic bred heifers and impact making cows with fall born calves.

Thank you for your interest in our Angus, SimAngus, and Simmental breeding program. We are committed to providing the highest quality of beef cattle seed stock 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.
