All heifers offered come with complete genomics profiles provided by Neogen’s Igenity Profile. The Igenity Profile compares and ranks our heifers against those in the Neogen database. The Neogen database contains genetic data from more than 1 million animals from top U.S. producers. Neogen’s Igenity compares our heifers to “the best of the best!” We also shared our data with Top Dollar Angus to evaluate our heifers within their program.
Every cow calf operator can tell a story about a heifer that just did not work out. You bought a heifer with little or no information about what you were getting, and unfortunately, a year or two later she had to go down the road, with a little extra of your money. Looks alone can be deceiving!
By partnering with Neogen and Top Dollar Angus, Noche Linda Farms offers buyers an opportunity to buy home-grown commercial heifers with verified genetics.
Using a tissue sample from each heifer, Igenity analyzes 7 maternal traits and 10 production traits that are grouped, averaged, and compared to Neogen’s data base with more than 1 million entries. Based on the average score, Neogen ranks our heifers as Elite, Premier, or Choice. That sample data is also analyzed by Top Dollar Angus, the beef industry’s leading genetic verification and marketing assistance company for commercial feeder cattle.
Buyers need only know what their herd goals are.
If you want to retain heifers for your herd, then our Elite & Premier Maternal Heifers will be a great addition. You will be not only adding proven genetics, but you will be adding to your herd’s existing gene pool.
If you sell 100% of your calves each year as feeders, then our Elite & Premier Terminal Heifers that are also certified Premiere Maternal, will, over time increase your pounds and provide you with reliable cows.
If you are looking for the best of both worlds, we offer several heifers that are both Elite Maternal & Elite Terminal, representing the top 7% of all commercial heifers. These are special heifers that are bound to improve your herd.
When you see something that pleases your eye, you can buy with confidence.

Future – Approximately September 2023 all bred heifers will receive:
At the time these heifers’ pregnancy checked (September 2023) and prior to sale or consignment, all heifers will be inspected by a KDA representative. This inspection may disqualify any heifers with eye scars, rat tails, wild or bad tempers, and general suitability.
All heifers offered are guaranteed bred to high quality Angus bulls. In choosing a sire for a heifer, we strive to find registered bulls that are in the top 20% of the breed in calving ease, weaning weight, yearling weight, foot soundness, as well as carcass quality. Coupled with our large percentage of Neogen Elite and Premiere heifers, buyers can feel confident that adding our heifers will improve their herd.
At Noche Linda Farms, docility and temperament are a primary focus of our herd development.
Quiet and easy handling cattle require less labor to manage, gain weight more efficiently, and reduce complications and costs!
