Greetings from Loonan Stock Farm

    

Greetings Friends,

Another year has almost gone by and it’s time to start preparing for our 42nd Production Sale. This summer has gone by fast and has not gone with out some trying moments. In July we had a storm come through and took a portion of our bull barn’s roof and some hail to go with it on the corn. We are in the process of completely rebuilding. So it was a little trying to wean calves in different lots but it worked out and the bulls and heifers are doing well. Hopefully by the time this letter is out we will have the bulls back in their barn.

Quality runs deep in this set of bulls and females. They looked good all summer and have not slowed down. The calves took off on feed with no sickness and are gaining well.

We purchased two new sires and will have calves out of them on the sale. Brilliance is a sire we purchased at the Cross Diamond sale and his calves are very impressive. Brilliance is dark red and very stout made. He did not lose any weight this summer while with his cows and his calves look to carry that same trait and should be easy keepers. BKT Scamp was purchased on the Beckton sale to be used on heifers. Scamp is a very long-sided, heavy-muscled bull. His calves were born easy and are growing well.

We lost Heardsman two days before we were going to turn out so this will be the last calves out of him because we did not get him collected to use in our AI program. He has some really stout calves so don’t miss out. Along with all of our other sires, this will be a nice set of bulls and females.

On behalf of Judy and myself, we would like to thank you for your past patronage and hope to continue with your business for years to come. If we can be of any assistance in any way please feel free to give us a call. The cattle are available for viewing anytime so come take a look. Thanks again!

Rick

 

Wedemeyer Farm – Generations of Loyalty
Larry and grandson Nick are part of the reason why we are always looking for even better genetics to produce outstanding bulls and heifer each year. In order to have what is needed next for them and others, it’s very important to not make mistakes.

Larry has been with us the whole time. He came to our first sale in 1975 and bought a heifer calf for his son Brian. That year, the bulls averaged $382, steers $258 and heifers $307. Our production sale in 2017 will be Larry’s 42nd one. We are fortunate to have Larry and grandson Nick as they get the most out of new genetics. They have a well-managed, diversified crop and livestock operation where everything gets done when it needs to be done, the way it needs to be done.

Larry started with our Simmental bulls and had a primarily Hereford cowherd. They tried other breeds but the Simmentals worked. When we introduced Red Angus in 1989, he started using them and is still to this day.

Nick has been helping Larry for as long as he can remember and through the choice of bulls purchased, their cattle are very docile and easy to work with. At the Cass County Fair, Nick had Carcass Champion and placed high with others.
“By using Red Angus we have kept our gainability up and have a consistent set of calves,” said Larry. When purchasing bulls, he and grandson Nick look for length, frame, eye appeal and performance.

Cattle from the Wedemeyer Farm have been selling at the Certified Red Angus sale in Masena, Iowa, in January since its inception. There is a great demand for his steers and heifers. His heifers usually go back to farms to become cows, and his steers to feedyard with repeat customers.

We at Loonan Stock Farm are very fortunate to be able to say that Larry has been with us going on 42 years and Nick has been involved in the decisions for a long time. He purchased his first heifers in our 2016 sale.

The cycle has started over as Larry started with a heifer, and now grandson Nick has five heifers, so we will strive to keep producing what will be profitable for all.

 

 
 

Consistency Across The Breeds

We strive for consistency in quality and type in our cattle. Here is a sample of some of the bulls in this year’s sale. So no matter what breed you choose, you can put your trust in predictable, profitable Loonan genetics.

Loonan Stock Farm in Corning, Iowa, is celebrating their 42nd year of success in the beef seedstock business.

The Loonan family has been in the cattle business in Iowa since 1864 when great-granddad Tom crossed the Mississippi with a team of oxen and started feeding cattle in northeast Iowa.

Our Goal...
We want to work with you and have the right genetics available when you need it. Together, we can continue to produce the industry's most profitable beef.
