Greetings from Loonan Stock Farm

    

Dear Friends,

Well, yet another year has passed by and that means it’s time for our 43rd annual production sale. It seems like time goes by way faster the older we get. We are honored to be associated with great people and customers that have supported our program for these 43 years, and we hope to continue to serve you for years to come.

Loonan Stock Farm is continuing to bring you the best genetics available. It is our goal to keep improving the genetics we use every year and pass them on to you to help improve your herd. We continue to promote cattle that are structurally sound, easy calving, grow rapidly and, most of all, have quiet dispositions. We also make it our top priority to buy bulls that have EPDs that are consistently the same all the way through their pedigree. We fel=el this will give you a more consistent calf crop.

Customer service is a top priority because we all know that not all cattle work out for one reason or another. We will do everything we can to help make your purchase one that will last. We would not have made it 43 years without customer service.

As we, or should I say, Judy, gets all the information ready for the catalog and I look through it, I see cattle with tremendous potential. This comes from the herd sires we are purchasing. This year we have four new and exciting herd sires with offspring in the sale.

SR Duke, a bull we bought at Cross Diamond Cattle Co., is a bull that shows great expression of muscle with length and frame. He carries a little more birthweight but calves easily.

Big John was purchased from Hall Red Angus in Nebraska. He is a performance bull with loads of power and tremendous EPDs. His calves will carry the same traits.

Cliff Top is from Beckton Stock Farm. This bull is very long-sided and stout. Oh, yes, and did I say he is a heifer bull? His calves are good.

And last but not least is Clint. He is a Simmental with loads of muscle and frame, and he is one of the easiest calving Simmentals we have calved. Even though there is some birth weight, they come easy. All the calves are coming along right on schedule and it will be an outstanding set.

If you’re looking to purchase offspring from Totem or Otis, this will be the final chance as both were removed from the program. Totem was getting old and didn’t get around well, so we sold him, but he does have very good calves this year. They are high-performance cattle with plenty of frame.

Otis developed a rupture so we had to sell him. His calves carry calm dispositions and plenty of rib and hip, so don’t miss out on the chance to purchase some of these genetics, as we don’t have semen on either one.

As I bring this welcome to an end, Judy and I would like to thank all of you who have supported the Loonan program over the last 43 years, and we hope to continue to bring you new and better genetics in years to come. All new customers, please feel free to come visit and take a look at the sale offering or just give us a call. We would be happy to visit with you. Thanks again and we hope to see you in February.

Judy and Rick

 

Generations of Loonan Loyalty

Our relationship with the Livingston family started back in 1984 when Rob bought his first bull from us which was a Simmental. He bought Simmental and Hybrid bulls until 1995 when he started using our Red Angus bulls. His son Warren bought a Simmental heifer in 1995 and a Simmental bull in 1997, and has been buying Red Angus bulls since.

They coordinate their sires and know how to pick bulls to complement the type of calves they raise. We provide the genetics but, just like Rob and Warren, our customers know how to get the most out of them with their management practices and knowledge of their cowherd.

To see Genevieve – the next generation – getting involved is why we do what we do. The cattle industry is great and to see the knowledge passed from one generation to the next is what it is all about.

 

 

Consistency Across The Breeds

We strive for consistency in quality and type in our cattle. Here is a sample of some of the bulls in this year’s sale. So no matter what breed you choose, you can put your trust in predictable, profitable Loonan genetics.

Loonan Stock Farm in Corning, Iowa, is celebrating their 43rd year of success in the beef seedstock business.

The Loonan family has been in the cattle business in Iowa since 1864 when great-granddad Tom crossed the Mississippi with a team of oxen and started feeding cattle in northeast Iowa.

Our Goal...
We want to work with you and have the right genetics available when you need it. Together, we can continue to produce the industry’s most profitable beef.
