Ridder Hereford Ranch Annual Bull & Heifer Sale

Scott Dirk

Dan, Joe, Tricia, Ellen and Mary Ridder at the Annual Ridder Hereford sale.

Ridder Hereford Ranch delivered a strong sale Feb. 4th at the ranch near Callaway, NE. The weather was somewhat blustery with snow and rain, but by sale time the seats were pretty much full. Because of the weather, there were several phone bids that helped make for a very successful sale.

Ridder Herefords is a century old family operation started by Theodore Ridder in 1907. Today the operation is still thriving under the management of John and Mary Ridder and their family.

The sale featured the yearling carload pen of bulls that were shown at the National Western in Denver. There is always high demand on this select group of yearling bulls and this year was no exception. Overall this was an excellent set of bulls that offered both calving ease and performance in a very eye appealing package. The heifers will go on to make excellent females in the future.
