Pieper Red Angus Fall Run Production Sale

Dan Piroutek

Jerry Sharp, Long Valley, SD, was really happy getting $770/head for his heifer calves this year. That's largely in-part because Mark Pieper was one of the bidders.

It was a fun day at Pieper Red Angus, as this sale had demand from the start to finish and throughout all of different classes of livestock. Every animal that was offered for sale found a new home.

Folks just like to come to the Pieper Ranch. The hospitality is fantastic and the cattle are better. You’ll be hearing a lot more from their horse program, as this was one of the strongest horse sales that I’ve seen this fall.

One thing that is obvious to everyone: Mark and Deb, the rest of their family, and the whole staff work hard to make successes of each of their sales. This is a friendly and welcoming group. From the old ranch horse barn to the tremendous noon dinner, everyone feels welcomed and wants to be a part of this program.

Very important to the commercial cattlemen is the fact that Mark tries to purchase many of his customers’ calves. Other cattlemen also like these calves, so sometimes Mark can’t buy them, but he is at the sale barn bidding on them.

This strong set of coming 2-year-old Red Angus bulls were in excellent condition for this competitive sale. Many of these bulls sold to repeat buyers.

The top selling bull was Lot 19, selling for $9,000 to Bob and Gwen Minerich from Richmond, KY. This son of Grand Canyon was out of a PIE Division 7104 daughter with an MPPA of 102.1. This bull posted a 105 ratio for both weaning and yearling weights, and he had an IMF ratio of 137.
