Mohnen Angus 2011 ‘Power of Genetics’ Sale

Dan Piroutek

An absolute capacity crowd assembled at Platte Livestock for the Mohnen Angus annual production sale. This herd has now stood the test of time, as they have built one of the outstanding Angus cowherds in the Midwest. They have produced several herd bulls that are standing at artificial insemination (AI) studs around the country, and we’ve seen sons of these Mohnen-bred AI sires topping sales.

This year’s sale was just fantastic and stayed strong all the way through. The weather was perfect, allowing bidders ample opportunity to view the bulls before the sale. The crowd appreciated the good weather as this area has had about all the winter it can stand. Steve and Kathy Mohnen, along with their family, and ever growing number of grandchildren, were on hand to greet folks before the sale. It looked like everyone was enjoying the day.

This set of bulls was probably the most uniform from top to bottom of any set produced by the Mohnens. There were several herd bull candidates this year, but the heart of the sale was made by the strong repeat commercial trade.

Top selling bull of the day was Lot 26, selling to the good herd of Werning Cattle Co. from Emery, SD, for $17,000. This was an extra deep-sided son of the home-raised herd sire and AI stud, Mohnen Brushpopper 295. This calf was out of Mohnen Zara 128 by BC Matrix who ratioed 111 on her first calf. He hit the ground at 87 lbs., grew to 924 lbs. at weaning, and continued to grow, reaching 1,497 lbs. as a yearling. His EPDs were +2.2 BW, +66 WW, +27 MILK and +117 YW. A 37.6 cm scrotal, a 15.3 sq. in. ribeye, and an IMF score of 4.66 completed the package.

Wendel Livestock from LaMoure, ND, chose Lot 69 at $9,500. This son of SS Objective T510 OT26 was out of a daughter of Leachman Right Time who had ratioed 109 on 2 calves. His EPDs were +0.4 BW, +63 WW, +28 MILK and +114 YW. He marked his chart with an 899-lb. weaning weight and a yearling weight of 1,509 lbs.

TDF Angus from Sterling, NE, bought Lot 29 for $9,000. He was a son of SAV Pioneer 7301 and was out of the Mohnen feature cow, Jilt 910, who has produced several herd bulls in the past. With a 72-lb. birth weight, he posted EPDs of +2.1 BW, +53 WW, +27 MILK and +85 YW.
