Pieper Red Angus 2011 Fall Run Production Sale

Dan Piroutek

Pieper Red Angus hosted another big crowd for their annual fall production sale. The weather was excellent on sale day – almost as good as the cattle market! The Pieper family is involved in all aspects of the ranch business. They run one of the top Red Angus cowherds in America, as well as feeding cattle, and also buying commercial cattle. Plus, they own one of the up-and-coming Quarter Horse mare bands in the region!

The bulls in this sale looked outstanding, being big and strong, with plenty of muscle. They are very sound on their feet and legs. This is also a good place to find a well-broke saddle horse.

The sale was a very fast-paced affair, with the highlight being the bred commercial heifers. New and old customers showed up with tremendous demand for each and every one. Mark Pieper is around in the fall and winter when his bull customers market their calves, and these commercial heifers were a good reflection of his program.

Top-selling bull of the day was Lot 1, selling for $10,000 to Minerich Land & Cattle from Richmond, KY. This son of TPIE Wagonmaster 753 was out of a daughter of LCB Hoss A444N, and was a big, long, calving ease bull with a great disposition. He posted a 15.11 square inch ribeye.

Lot 9 sold to Brad Gran from Carter, SD, for $8,500. Sired by HXC Headliner 6601X, and out of a Hoss daughter, he had an 84-lb. birth weight. He weaned at 746 lbs., and attained a yearling weight of 1,365 lbs. to ratio 123. His EPDs were BW -0.2, WW 33, YW 63, Milk 14, TM 31, ME 3, HPG 7, CEM 2, STAY 15, Marb 0.1, and REA 0.08.

The Rapid Creek Ranch from Belvidere, SD, topped their sale purchases with Lot 31 at $8,250. He was sired by PIE Express 5148.
