Annual Bred Female Sale

Greetings to all our friends in the cattle business. Once again, fall seems to have snuck up on us!  

 Our Annual Bred Female Sale will be held Saturday, November 11, at our farm.  We will again use our silent auction format, with bidding from now until noon sale day.  All cattle picked up that day receive a $50 per head discount.

We have a solid group of both purebred and composite heifers, settled to Red Angus calving ease bulls, as well as productive mature cows.  You will notice that in the catalog listing this year we added registration numbers for each animal, and 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 EPD and pedigree information as well as performance ratios and data found under the Expanded Report selection at the bottom of the page.

We thank you for your business in the past and hope to see you this November.  Please call (515) 379-1499 with any questions or to stop by.

            We’ll see you on the 11th!

Francis, Karol, and Cindy
