Sletten Angus 23rd Annual Angus Sale

Dan Piroutek

The Sletten family has a very loyal clientele of repeat customers, but this year also brought a host of new bidders and buyers that really helped expand the market on the Sletten bulls. The sale barn was packed as Sletten Angus, owned by John and Tammy Sletten, and their daughter, Jessica, presented their bulls on a beautiful day in Faith, SD – it was 50 degrees and water was running everywhere.

The Sletten program is based on bringing the best Angus genetics available to their customers. This year John Sletten brought in two new artificial insemination (AI) sire groups: “Hoover Dam,” and “Syd Gen CC & 7,” the number-one docility sire in the Angus breed and also the sire of “Hoover Dam.” There were eight sons of Hoover Dam in the sale, and they averaged $5,062. These sons of Hoover Dam were truly an impressive sire group.

The sale moved along at a rapid pace and every bull found a new home.

Top selling bull of the day was Lot 014, a son of Hoover Dam who was out of a daughter of Sitz Alliance 7544. He had an 80-lb. birth weight, a weaning weight of 727 lbs., and a yearling weight of 1341 lbs. His EPDs were +1.0 BW, +55 WW, +33 MILK and +109 YW, along with posting a Beef Value of 55.15. Other stats included a 13.7 sq. in. ribeye, a marbling score of 5.35, and a 39.3 cm. scrotal measurement. He sold to Jeffrey Werner from Carson, ND, for $9,500.

Joe Stangle from New Underwood, SD, chose Lot 006 at $6,750. A son of Syd Gen CC & 7, he was out of a daughter of TC Stockman 365 who was a pathfinder cow. His EPDs were +2.3 BW, +48 WW, +36 MILK and +94 YW. Born at 86 lbs., he weaned at 747 lbs. and attained a yearling weight of 1,299 lbs.

The Fish Hook Ranch from Prairie City, SD, was back this year to buy Lot 011 at $6,250. This was an extra long-bodied bull with a lot of muscle. He was by Hoover Dam and out of a daughter of New Frontier 095. Weaning at 743 lbs., he reached 1381 lbs. as a yearling. His ribeye scan was 14.0 sq. in. and he had an IMF score of 5.67.
