Greetings to our friends in cattle production. Hopefully, 2021 will be a better year for all than 2020!

We have some terrific bulls for sale this year. Make sure to check out the sons of FMB Conqueror 15D, a bull who sires uniform calves proving consistently high-performing and productive, and a strong line-up of red Simmental bulls out of FMB Sundance Kid 34Z.

Saturday, April 3, we will host our Opening Day Private Treaty Sale for 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. Any bids can be left either that morning if you prefer not to wait until noon, or earlier at 515-379- 1499. There will be a $50 discount applied to bulls picked up the day of the sale.

Unfortunately, we have not yet received the ultrasound carcass data back from the lab. This information will be posted as soon as it is available on our website, and will be accessible on the registration page of each bull once processed.

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. 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.

We now have the carcass information on the bulls and they are looking really good.


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.


15D - April 7, 2018
     
 
FMB Iron Mountain 33A, a Catagory 2 Red Angus.  He is doing a good job at Windy Ridge Red Angus down in Missouri.  His best score is Marbling at top 1% of the breed.  And Gridmaster at 9%.    FMB Conqueror 15D, a purebred Red Angus.  We are very pleased with his EPD stats.  He is in the top 1% on Gridmaster, Weaning Weight, Yearling Weight,  and top 7% on Marbling.   His actual birth weight was 79 pounds, weaning EPD at 92, and yearling EPD at 160,   920 and 1604 actual pounds respectively.
