Welcome . . .

We have been breeding purebred Red Angus since 1971 and Simmental since 1970. Our first Red Angus A.I. sires were Chocataw Chief 373, Burke 787, Ankonian Dynamo, and then the outcross black PowerPlay. Our first Simmental A.I. sires were Petunia, Florian, then Galant and Signal. We have used A.I. each year trying to find the best of the breeds. We don't go to extremes; we believe in balance. We also believe performance is the essential ingredient and have done performance testing since the beginning. Our first sale 47 years ago gave 205 weight, Daily Gain, 365 weight, and Ratio. Look what information we have now.

Annual Bred Female Sale Private Treaty
Saturday, November 11th.

Greetings to all our friends in the cattle business. Once again, fall seems to have snuck up on us!  

 Our Annual Bred Female Sale will be held Saturday, November 11, at our farm.  We will again use our silent auction format, with bidding from now until noon sale day.  All cattle picked up that day receive a $50 per head discount.

We have a solid group of both purebred and composite heifers, settled to Red Angus calving ease bulls, as well as productive mature cows.  You will notice that in the catalog listing this year we added registration numbers for each animal, and 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 EPD and pedigree information as well as performance ratios and data found under the Expanded Report selection at the bottom of the page.

We thank you for your business in the past and hope to see you this November.  Please call (515) 379-1499 with any questions or to stop by.

            We’ll see you on the 11th!

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.  His picture is taken out on pasture with some cows.
