Greetings to our friends in cattle production. It’s Bull Sale Time! Come on over for a bit of lunch and maybe even some nice spring weather…we can hope!

Saturday, April 2, 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, due to a long series of paperwork SNAFUs and COVID back-ups at the testing lab, we do not have the DNA testing results back yet on the Simmental and SimAngus bulls. 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. Also, the ultrasound data will not be incorporated into the Red Angus EPDs until March 29, and the updated EPDs
will be posted on the registry and available opening day.

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.redangus.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.
