Annual Yearling Bull Sale Private Treaty April 7th

Greetings to our friends in cattle production.   After the last few months of wild weather shifts, hopefully spring is coming to stay.  Bring on the warm sun and green pastures!

On Saturday, April 7, we will have an Opening Day Private Treaty Sale on the yearling bulls here at the farm using a silent auction format.  The bulls can be viewed after 10 AM that day, with final bids taken at noon. In the event you are unable to attend, bids can be left earlier at 515-379-1499.  There will be a $50 discount applied to bulls picked up the day of the sale.

The catalog is arranged in a two-line entry format.  When reading the listing, the heading in bold matches the data in bold, etc.  Under each EPD is the percentile which explains how this bull ranks within the breed.  For example, a 25% under birth wt. means this bull is in the top 25% of all reg. Red Angus bulls of this age group.

Both the Red Angus and Simmental breed associations have change to a new program for calculating EPDs.  This allows for more frequent updates, resulting in numbers that may have changed from when our catalog was developed.  The most recent EPDs may be found by looking up a bull’s entry in their registry.  Registration numbers for each bull are listed, and we encourage you to visit either the Red Angus Association of America (www.redangus.org), or the American Simmental Association (www.simmental.org, www.herdbook.org) to find further pedigree information as well as performance ratios and data found under the Expanded Report selection at the bottom of the page.

Francis, Karol, and Cindy

Employment Opportunity:  We are always looking for full-time and flexible part-time help.  If you or someone you know is interested in working in the cow-calf sector or getting into cattle production, please let us know.
