Fellow Cattle Producers,
“Wow” is the first thing that comes to mind. Wow, what a year. Just when you think you have seen it all or been through it all….
Even with all that has happened all around us in the last year, Circle S Ranch has been very blessed! We welcomed (from a distance) Kaycie and Clay’s daughter, Kambrie Dayle, in March. She’s the perfect reflection of ‘Ol Grampa John’ and will give her brother and cousins a run for their money for sure. We also celebrated Johnny and Jess’s wedding in June. (Yes, Johnny married our long-time herd veterinarian, Dr. Jess…and, what an event that was!) We were very humbled by the attendance of so many fellow Gelbvieh cattle breeders and friends. Finally, in 2020, we also have had the honor to purchase the entire herd from a longtime Gelbvieh breeder – John Oswald and Sons. We cannot thank Andy Oswald and the entire Oswald family enough for that opportunity.
Our decision to increase the sale offering was one that has taken some planning and deciding which direction we’d pursue. I think you will be pleased with the out-cross and breeding pieces that are offered here as a result.
This offering has an outstanding set of genetics – red and black purebred Gelbvieh as well as some of our Gelford cattle. Our philosophy remains focused on structurally correct cattle, moderate frame size and sound movement. We do not chase numbers on paper. We breed cattle for the real world, not a pampered environment. These cattle can survive and thrive in more than ‘typical seasonal’ conditions.
Thanks again to all of our past customers and especially to our consignors – cooperators that also believe in the Circle S program. Your confidence is greatly appreciated. To potential new customers, we appreciate your consideration of our program and look forward to seeing your success with Circle S genetics.
As always, we would love to see you in person on April 3. But, if you are not able to join us in person, please join us online via DVAuction.
REMEMBER: good cattle come from good cattle and not just a piece of paper!
