Whelan Farms Special Announcement

In an effort to bring you what we believe to be the very best in Simmental and SimAngus genetics, Rick Wood of Woodlawn Farms in Clarksville, Georgia and Rick Whelan of Whelan Farms in Wadley, AL, have partnered together with the assistance of Jeremie Ruble, owner of Ruble Cattle Services in Corydon, Iowa; to make purchase of the Entire fall calving herd from Nelson Livestock Company of Wibaux, Montana, a nationally known Simmental and SimAngus breeder.The cows will start calving in September/October 2013 at Whelan Farms in Wadley, AL. 

 We are confident that the calves of these females  will make a huge impact to our joint breeding program.  The calves will also make a tremendous contribution to our second annual Southern Excellence Bull Sale, the second Saturday in December, 2014.

Thank you, Tom and Renee Nelson for this incredible opportunity!

Registered SimAngus

Welcome to Whelan Farms SimAngus. Our Philosophy: Performance, predictability and customer service are what we strive for, and always keep at the fore front at Whelan Farms SimAngus. We use all the genetic tools available to us and help our commercial customers understand that information. The extensive use of AI help us produce the best genetics. We don't chase the extremes. EPDs are powerful tools, however we need to use common sense and practicality to utilize them. Balance is the key word.  We have spent a lot of time on disposition, udder quality, moderate frame and fertility.  If a cow doesn't have a calf every year and get bred up early, she is history. Finally, heterosis is real and will add value to your cattle, whether in the feedlot, on the rail, or in the productive, fertile females that will be the future of your cow herd. Our customer service is second-to-none.

Mission Statement

We strive to produce high quality cattle that have balanced EPDS, are functional, solid colored, polled, moderately framed and can survive the extreme conditions of South East Alabama, as well as anywhere in the country. We raise cattle to calve easily, grow fast and efficiently, hang a desirable carcass and provide an enjoyable eating experience for our customers.

Whelan Farms is listed by the ASA "REGISTER" as one of the top 50 herds for Terminal Index (TI) averages for all 2011 born calves.
