Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself

Couldn’t Have Said It Better Myself… For those of you that don’t know, it was my privilege to coach an exceptional group of young men during the mid and late 1990’s.  Some of them are now involved in production agriculture as farmers and ranchers.  One of them, a particular favorite of mine for various reasons, recently made a comment to me that not only left me smiling, but was very sensible and thought provoking.  He said, “You know, Rick, I have yet to have a cattle buyer ask me what the EPD’s are on my calves.” I couldn’t help but […]

In the “On Deck” Circle

As weaning time is days away we managed to get some pictures of the calves while they were still on their mothers.  From the calves out of our ET program to the natural service-sired calves we are very pleased with the uniformity of the type and structure that these calves display. The ET calves out of the cows shown on this website are sired by Sinclair Emulation XXP (15355048), Rito 054 GDAR (9777104), YA Universe 013 (13657166), AAR New Trend (9958634), ZRP Eliminator 008 (17197894), CH Quantum 6247 (“Cedar” 12687606), YA Equator 548 (15155436), and Vance Top Dawg (9966391).

Pelton Livestock Marketing & Consulting

We began working with Bill Pelton of Pelton Livestock Marketing & Consulting last fall.  Bill and his crew were instrumental in helping us move from our traditional private-treaty bull sale to the online auction we held in March.  The process was new to us, but with Bill’s help, the transition was smooth, and the results exceeded our expectations.  We look forward to working with Bill for our next online auction in March 2016. The link below is a video featuring our ranching operation.  We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Pelton Livestock Marketing & Consulting’s services.

Going Back as We Move Forward

As the heat of the “dog days of summer” are upon us, 95 to 105 degrees for the last week, I reflect on the activities of the past 6 months. First and foremost, I’m thankful for the good health and well being of our family-including our 7 grandchildren (with the 8th one due in September!). Our first online bull sale in March surpassed our expectations and is a format that we intend to continue. Selling 2 year-old bulls fits our marketing program and was well received by our customers. Once again, we would like to thank all of the buyers […]
