Mohnen Angus 2010 Sale – "Power of Genetics"

Dan Piroutek

Mohnen Angus, owned by Steve and Kathy Mohnen and their family, hosted a big crowd for their annual production sale at Platte Livestock. The Mohnen program is truly a breeding program built around proven genetics. They have used their own top bulls back in this program to stack these genetics. Much of this has come from one great cow, Mohnen Jilt 910, and her mother, Mohnen Jilt 143, back to Bon View Traveler 181.

There are now several Mohnen herd bulls that have gained national recognition as proven sires. Mohnen Dynamite 1356, Mohnen Brushpopper 353, Mohnen Brushpopper 295, Mohnen Crown Royal 316 are just to name a few.
