"Black Simmental Cattle--The Breed of Excellence"

Welcome to the site of Peck Simmentals, Montana breeders of black simmental cattle.   We have been raising black simmental cattle since 1987.  We started  raising livestock with a single grade cow in 1980.  We purchased our first purebred simmental in 1984 from Harry Ferguson ( one of the pioneers of the simmental breed in Montana).

Peck Simmentals is a small operation,  owned and operated by William and Marianne Peck.  We are located in the beautiful Jefferson valley near Whitehall, Montana.  Whitehall is located 25 miles east of Butte  and 60 miles West of Bozeman. Although we are a small operation, we continue to produce quality cattle through our selective AI program.  We now have generations of black polled simmental cattle out of such trait leaders as Black Irish Kansas,  Black Mick, Circle S Leachman 600U,  Franchise,  GW Lucky Break, Legacy, Gambler,Daume Legend,Dream On, Triple C Invasion TNT Jump Start and GAR Predestined.  We have now added LBR Sun Up(a son of Hooks Baltic D545) to this impressive list of excellent Bulls.

Next years calves will be out of Pioneeer, Final Answer, and LBR Sun Up and Cowboy Cut.

We continue to breed for small birth weights, fast growth, and carcass traits, that will make our cattle a great addition to anyone's breeding program.

We would like to express a special "THANK YOU" at this time to Don and Nancy Burnham of Prickly Pear Simmental Ranch, Bill Begger of Beggers Diamond V Ranch, and the late Otto Simon, for sharing their knowledge and expertise with us. Their guidance has led us down the right road, and helped us to build our excellent herd of simmentals.

Past Productions

A couple of our past productions include: PS/PPSR SUMO who is a carcass trait leader. He won 4th at the Denver Stock Show and was Grand Champion in his class and Reserve Grand Champion of the show at the Montana Winter Fair.

PS Irish Mick was Grand Champion in her class and Reserve Grand Champion of the show at the Northern International Livestock Exposition (N.I.L.E.)


SimmAngus Calves in 2018

The Simmental cross with Angus is very popular with breeders of both of these breeds. This year we are selling our bull calves private treaty here at the ranch. These bulls are SimmAngus and are out of LBR Sun Up. They are excellent bulls with terrific production traits both from the purebred dams and from Hooks Baltic, and will work well in any program.
