red angus

Our Commitment  " QUALITY "

Brad purchased his first Red Angus Registered female in 1994. His focus has always been efficient, trouble-free, productive cows.... It has never been about EPD profiles and his program has never been about the "Bull-of-the-month-club-member" It has been about identifying great cow families...and stacking them.  


Many of Brad's cow herd and bulls go back to this cow.  
Sodak EM 5127  Reg# 488023 -0.9 BW 31 WW 33 YW and a 98.6 MPPA. She is a 1995 model black/red gene cow and is the most prominent female in his cow herd.  Everyone of her daughters have produced too.

    
The bulls he offers are fed a ration of 42 Megs and never receive higher than 48.  The focus is not the end weight but developing his bulls for longevity and soundness.  His many repeat customers will testify to their longevity.  He also adds extra nutrition to his herd by supplementing with Tracer Minerals.

Thank you to all that considered or voted for me for the Region B director’s seat.

“I'm a lifelong commercial cattle producer. My family's roots stem from a multi-generational Hereford operation that experimented in Red Angus on a heifer project in 1989. Since 1992 we have been 100 percent Red Angus-sired.  “I've been a member and breeder of the Red Angus Association of America since 1994. Today's herd consists of 200 registered females, a 50-head bull sale, and one of the most successful customer-based commercial female sales in the country.
“I've had 51 years of combined public board service – 27 consecutive years on the Keya Paha County planning commission and 24 years on the Niobrara Council (initially, an appointment from the Secretary of the Interior, and now a Gubernatorial appointment). The Council is a unique landmanagement board comprised of local, state, federal and wildlife/conservation interests that jointly manage the Niobrara National Scenic River. Both capacities were start-up boards that provided unique challenges in crafting Comprehensive Development Plans and a Constitution and Bylaws.   I am very well versed in public board transparency, long-range planning and protection of resources, and fully understand the legal duties, obligations and limitations of a public board member.   “My educational background includes a Magna Cum Laude Bachelor of Science in business administration with emphasis in finance, accounting and marketing in 1989 from Kearney State College (UNK).   “As a candidate, some areas I would like to devote attention to are customer service, Board responsibility and accountability to the membership, Board transparency, freedom of genetic choice, and breed improvement and innovation.
