Conception to the Table

Welcome to Beef Fleckvieh

Welcome to Stanley Martins Fleckvieh Farms. Located 1 mile West of Postville, Iowa on HWY 18. Fleckvieh of Iowa.

We have been in the seedstock business since 1960. Our Fleckvieh Herd consists of 200 cows, 100 Fleckvieh, and 100% Black Fleckvieh. We have placed emphisis on cattle of the highest quaility that are farmer friendly and non-diluter.

The cattle we have today are the results of our endless effort to bring you the best cow families in the world. Live animals and frozen genetics have come from around the globe, most from Canada, a few from the states, in addition to use of semen from direct German imports.

This is what I do. These cattle are fully researched and reliable and work under normal farming and ranching conditions. I am 68 years old and will not tolerate calving or disposition issues. Our cattle have produced many rate of gain and carcass champions at County and State Fairs. We are here to help you make your beef operation more profiable! Please call or email.

We now have sexed embryos available!

Golden Dawn YUMA

Yuma is a bull we raised and is sired by Talladega and out of an exceptional daughter of Whistler. His first calves were born in the fall of 2014 and they are impressive. Yuma consistantly sires calving ease, muscle and color. Tested non diluter. Great feet and large testicals.

We have several outstanding Yuma sired fall born bull calves, in addition to 2 spectacular brothers to Yuma himself. Don't wait until it's too late!

Crown Royal

Crown Royal a dark red direct son of Canadian Neff out of the super donor Brocks Meesha. Crown Royal is a living testament of proven German genetics. Crown Royal’s sire Canadian Neff was born in 1971 and his semen is extremely rare.

Golden Dawn Bonus

Sire: Solway Adonis. Dam: Kerstin

Bonus' sire Solway Adonis has proven to be one of the best sires ever used in North America. Born in 1970, his semen is extremely rare. And you will pay dearly if you can even find it.

Bonus mother is the highly proven Kirsten cow who is sired by Hafke and out of the great Lilli-Marlen cow. Which makes Bonus a strait German pedigree. We beleive Bonus is more valuable than Solway Adonis as Bonus is straight haired and solid colored, with lots and lots of pigment. And tested non-diluter. Bonus two flushmate sisters are absolutely stunning.

Congratulations to the Marc Johnson family on their Grand Champion Merit of Beef Steer at the 2012 Iowa State Fair. The Johnson family has won this for I beleive the third time in the last few years. It goes by retail cuts per day or age and must grade choice. All of these calves have been sired by fleckvieh bulls purchased here. All you have to do is call to reserve your herdbull needs!

Hi! I delivered the last of our bulls a while back to one of our best long time bull customers. Could not believe the fancy set of Fleckvieh x Angus replacement heifers he had; beautiful black and black white face females. It took some real “arm-twisting” but I was able to get them bought. They will be included in the group of 100 bred heifers that will be available this fall. They are mated to our calving ease straight Angus bulls. They will be sold on a first come – first serve basis. Call now to reserve yours. With the U.S. cowherd at their lowest numbers since 1958, the drought and further liquidation in the western states this summer - the future of the beef business has never looked more profitable!

It’s not too early to be thinking about next year’s bull needs. Five bulls have already been reserved from this year’s calf crop.

Hope to see you around!

The Blue Spruce Aquistion:

Last summer while in Alberta we wanted to check out "South Seven Top Notch" as he created quite the impact for Rob Stuart. Rob's a great cowboy and super gentleman. Blue Spruce (Harold Albrecht) is the co-owner of Top Notch. In the late nineties Harold purchased some of the best Fleckvieh cows money could buy. Including several of the top lots in the MFL and Greg Bain dispersals. When BSE hit Harold ran his cows as commercials and took a job in town. So Harold's cattle have been selected just as they should be; sound feet and legs, gentle dispositions and raising a big calf every year or they went on the trailer.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank Harold for allowing us to select 12 cows and six calves. Some are papered and most are either sired by or bred to Top Notch.

Top Notch semen in the 2012 Fleckvieh Equation sale sold for $300/unit. Here's Rob Stuart's Footnote:

South Seven Top Notch can be called Mr. Consistant. He passes along excellent color, hair coat, depth of body and length of spine to all of his progeny. We have sold approximately 25 bulls in the past three years that have averaged $6,200 dollars. We have only released three of his females from our herd to Maxwells, Beechiner Bros and Kulyks. He is co-owned with Blue Spruce breeding 40-50 cows per year. He has been used on both purebred and commercial herds with excellent results. There is no guess work with Top Notch.

These cattle arrived Feb 1 along with a nice Appollo daughter from Rob Stuart and Prospera an awesome daughter of Jahari going back to SRN Miss Universe IC. Give us a call we'd love to show them to you!
