A HUGE THANK YOU to all the bidders on our Denver '17 lots.
Special thanks to long time friends and repeat customers Shaggy Meadows Red Angus and Namken Red Angus for partnering on Pick of the Herd flush. Look forward to Paisley, Cooper, and the Shaggy to be named soon having fun with this in the coming years!
Welcome to the Red Angus breed Jesse Johnson! Congrats for starting the foundation of your red program with Red Flying K Max 159 Y and Red SSS Academy 558C from Namkens.

And last, but certainly not least, a huge tip of the hat to Rains Cattle Co. LLC for selecting pick of the herd heifer and 30 straws of Max for their purebred program, and negotiating 200 more straws of Max for their #Bellydraggernation commercial program.
It was a helluva Denver Stock Show and I can't say thank-you enough!!!

Thank you all that considered 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.
“I strongly encourage each member to attend National Convention 2017 in Colorado Springs, and exercise your membership right to vote for the candidate that supports your beliefs,” We would appreciate your vote and support - Brad Arrowsmith.

March 2017 - NEW Lead Herd Sire for Arrowsmith Red Angus and Partners Rains Cattle Company of Stillwater Oklahoma.

Tactic was the high selling bull @ the 2017 SSS bull Sale this past Monday 
I personally have been looking for a bull like this for a long time.. 
To help take Arrowsmith Red Angus and Rains Cattle to the next level & produce Seedstock that will work in any area.. 
Tactic is a bull that is packed full of red meat, super long bodied, feet that all point the right way, tons of body & rib cage!! Lots of hip & top. Very Balanced bull, all the way to his EPD's! There will be limited semen packages available soon.. If u want to tie into a bull that that will change your calf crop in one generation, Think (Tactic!!)
