Real world bulls designed and bred to generated profits for commercial cattle producers are the only bulls you will find carrying the Allied brand. Fertility, calving ease, efficient and often exceptional growth, carcass excellence and proven maternal value are all bred in to help insure success for years to come. We know that the sires you chose to use this year can have a significant financial impact on your herd for at least the next 10 to 15 years. That is why we offer and promote genetics designed for the largest segment of the beef business, the commercial cattlemen. We now have three great options to access industry leading genetics from Allied programs.
1. Allied Semen and Genetics has been a partner with ORIgen located in Billings Montana for more than 5 years now. The ORIgen commitment of “breeder to breeder” services is much like our own at Allied and they are a great partner to work with. We currently offer more than 100 sires with inventory distributed by ORIgen including high value SimAngus, Simmental, Red Angus, Angus and Brangus options. For more information on the sires listed with ORIgen, please contact any of our Allied staff or check out the listings at www.alliedgeneticresources.com
2. Select Sires has been a great semen marketing partner now for more than 2 years. There experienced team of distributors and technicians do a tremendous job servicing customers across the country. You will see the Allied logo on many of their SimGenetics bulls. This logo is an assurance of genetic value. Originating from some of the best programs in the nation, you need only look at the genetic values, pedigrees and sources to understand the goals of our partnership effort.
3. Genex Cooperative is our latest partner in the genetic improvement business. With one of the largest and most potent line ups of bulls in the industry we expect great things from this partnership as well. You will see a growing number of Allied logo’ed bulls and some proven newcomers to the Genex line up very soon. Genex has a terrific group of folks who work at the grass roots level servicing both breeders and commercial herds. We believe that offering more high quality Allied bulls through that committed group will benefit everyone in the partnership.
Strategic Planning & Consultation
A cattle business is like any other, it requires intense management, planning, and organization. Mastery of the essential principles that govern good management of products, profits, and people is step number one in any well thought out plan. Formulation of cattle marketing strategies, supply chain streamlining, and their execution are critical processes where the Allied Team can provide assistance.
If you have thought about expanding your herd or adding a specialized product like commercial bred heifers, we will help you consider all critical factors. Utilize our team’s substantial background in strategic marketing and brand development to help your program gain a competitive edge. We’ll help build a specialized plan of action to help your ranch tap into high quality supply chains to source the elite heifers your program needs.

Sales and Marketing Management
Perhaps one of the most unique aspects of the Allied business is our flexibility. We realize every cattle sales opportunity is different. Therefore, each commercial ranch we service receives a customized package to cater to their specific needs.
If you need to have a large cow reduction or dispersal sale, our team will walk you step by step through the process and facilitate the formulation of a sale strategy and see its execution through to the end.
Furthermore, if your goal is to expand your operation by adding commercial bred heifers, our marketing team can offer you options to insert them alongside one of 60 branded genetics programs from coast to coast. This will effectively capture the value of that existing brand while adding a symbiotic customer service element that serves as an extension of the genetic solutions the company as a whole can offer. By utilizing our understanding of strategic marketing and brand development, our team will help you set yourself apart.
