Dear Friends,
With much excitement, we welcome you to our 47th annual production sale! A light snow has blanketed the cowstoday and we couldn’t be more excited to welcome it to the area. While the snow accumulations have not been excessive,optimism seems to remain high. Surrounding regions and states have seen a return of the white stuff and we know weare one day closer to having a big one cut loose.Our excitement and enthusiasm for better quality cattle continues to drive our ambitions and adventures. We arepersistently working to make our cattle more productive and functional. As far as we know, the perfect bull has not yetbeen produced; so, we continue to select a variety of sires that bring different strengths to our herd.Each year we select a group of AI sires that will offer us exceptional calving ease and light birth weights. However, weput just as much focus on selecting a group of power bulls that produce strong heavy calves at weaning. Whether they are calving ease bulls or power bulls, they also offer different strengths when it comes to carcass, foot quality, udderquality and disposition. We strongly feel each trait is just as important as the other and therefore, we do not single traitselect for one specific thing.Sires may come and go, but a few key management decisions have remained the same. Our calves continue to begrown without any supplementation prior to weaning. We feel creep feeding doesn’t provide us with the most accurateidea of a cow’s capabilities. We know you want the most honest weights you can get and that is why our weights aremeasured accurately and recorded honestly. You can rest easy knowing the weights we have listed are honestmeasurements.is year’s bulls have been maintained on a 48 mega calorie and 14% protein diet, for the majority of the winter. Abull that is too fat will struggle to cover very many cows, but a bull that is too green will have the same up hill battle. Westrive to place our bulls in between these two extremes.We are extremely thankful for all the loyal customers who have put their trust in us and the wonderful neighborsand friends who continue to help us build this program. Without each one of you our endeavors would be impossibleand pointless. We will keep praying for moisture and we hope that you will join us.Sale day is quickly approaching and we look forward to seeing you! Please feel free to contact us with any questionsthat you may have and stop by early for a viewing and a cup of coffee.
Sincerely, Marty, Eddie, David and Justin
Justin & Hannah David & Rachael Shane & Kris 
Thanks to our dedicated employees!
