Opening Day Bred Female Sale
NOVEMBER 11, 2023



Herd Reduction Sale of Bred Heifers and Young Cows

Francis and Karol need to be retiring so must let our favorites go.

53 Years Years of AI to the top bulls, our lifetimes work.

Opening Day Saturday November 11th at the farm.

Greetings to all our friends in the cattle business. As we continue to prepare for retirement, we are reducing the number of cows in the spring calving herd sharply. This means that we are selling the bulk of the young, productive cows as well as a larger selection of purebred Red Angus and Simmental heifers, and SimAngus heifers.

This year, our Annual Bred Female Sale will be held Saturday, November 11, at our farm, with our silent auction format but with an important change. The opening day sale will run from NOON to 2 PM . All cattle picked up that day receive a $50 per head discount.

In the catalog listing are registration numbers for each animal, 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 EPD and pedigree information as well as performance ratios and data found under the Expanded Report selection at the bottom of the page. Due to space constraints, service sire data are not listed in the mailing, but the full list will be available online, on sale day, and upon request.

We thank you for your business in the past and hope to see you this November. Please call (515) 379-1499 or (515) 320-2818 with any questions or to stop by.

We’ll see you on the 11th!

Francis, Karol, and Cindy
