Yankee Creek has been raising Simmis almost as long as we have. They used to be have some real high dollar cattle, but as fullbloods faded so did they. However, Bar 5 is the premier Fullblood Simmental farm in North America and were in 1977 when we started. They have been bought and sold several times since then, but still are at the top. The newest fad in Fleckvieh genetics is animals that are imported from or trace to South Africa and Bar 5 is the leader in that area.
