Sitz Angus 45th Annual Production Sale

Scott Dirk

Lyle Weiss, Pine Creek Angus, and John Sletten, Sletten Angus, both of Faith, SD at the Sitz sale.

The Sitz family hosted their 45th annual bull sale at the ranch southwest of Harrison, MT on Dec. 2, 2010. Though this was the 45th sale, the Sitzs have been in the Angus business for 87 continuous years. A true testament to a family dedicated to the cattle industry and the Angus breed.

This sale was made up of a powerful set of two-year-old bulls specifically selected to sell as twos. They were thick and stout with great eye appeal, depth and thickness. The bulls are weaned on grass for 45 days then brought in and fed for a 2-2.5 lb. ADG. At the end of May the bulls are turned back out on grass until mid-September, when they are brought in and fed a high roughage ration for a moderate 2-2.5 lb. managed gain. Throughout this entire period, the bulls are weighed several times, sorted and culled to ensure that only the best are offered in the sale.

The bred heifers are weaned in mid-October and are on grass until Dec. 1, when they are brought in and fed for a moderate 1-1.5 lb. gain. They go back to grass in May and are AI-bred two cycles. The sale heifers are sorted by calving dates and were very well accepted by both repeat and new buyers.

Once again there was a great crowd of buyers on hand to purchase this offering of top notch bulls sired by the leading sires of the Angus breed.
