Welcome to Slagle Angus for our annual Ranchers Bull Sale.
Thank you for taking the time to review the catalog for our 2018 sale. We are very excited with this year's sale offering and the opportunity to work with Ostrand Angus and the Ostrand family again. The combination of our two herds into one sale provides a strong set of bulls, in a large volume, for you to pick what best meets your needs.
The bulls we are offering for sale have over forty years of selection for maternal, carcass and performance traits. They have moderate birth weights along with enough frame and volume to allow them to produce offspring with extra performance. These bulls have an average gain on test of 4.72 pounds per day for a 125 day test period, ending up with an average adjusted 365 day weight of 1486 pounds. When measured by ultrasound for carcass quality, the bulls posted average adjusted Ribeye measurements of 15.4 sq. inches and an adjusted Marbling score of 4.46 %IMF. We run the bulls in a large pasture after weaning, as long as possible into winter, to give them exercise and a clean environment. After the sale, we will run them out as much as possible, along with providing bedding and protection from the weather, as needed.
The volume discounts, breeding guarantees, boarding and delivery programs are all described in the catalog. Be sure to check out the videos of the entire sale offering. If you have any questions, give us a call. Thank you for your interest in our breeding program and we hope to see you February 21st at the ranch.
