Welcome to Four L. Acres or FLA for short

Where most Full blood Gelbvieh trace to. FLA are bred true no other breeds in our Gelbvieh over the years I have seen other breeds put into them causing a shortage of fulls. Then the bred up purebreds looking only for frame. Now again other breeds coming into the blood. Since 2004 We have Impacted the Fullblood Gelbvieh.

We jumped up our Red Angus program by purchasing some elite Reds from Rex at the end of 2018. We are now getting some very good results.

Our Gelbvieh herd is based on the bloodlines of two of the most dominant herds in the fullblood breed BLR and CR.
In December of 2006 we made a major purchase of fullblood Gelbviehs from Exotic. These cattle were brought in to improve our muscling and capacity. Most of these cattle trace back to BLR. We use embryo transfer on our best cows and heifers.
Feel free to check out our cattle in sale pen and show strings. If something catches your fancy make a offer. We very seldom put cattle in auction. So most of our stock is sold private treaty.
