Bull Sale

Each year my family and I host our annual bull sale. Since 2006 we have marketed our bulls in this live public auction style format. We feel by offering two age groups of bulls, it offers more choice for you, the customer.

Our bulls are never rented out as yearlings, nor do we keep a bull that has previously been offered for sale only to try and sell him the next year to you as a two year old.

Commercial Cattle

I believe it’s vital as a seed stock producer to not only build functional cattle to help the commercial cow calf producer, but to stay involved and informed in the next sector of the beef industry as well. Each year we participate in feedlot clubs with either our own cattle or our customers cattle to gauge how our genetics are comparing to the industry. We also try to stay informed as to how our commercial calves are being fed-out as well. The pictures below are a sample.
