Stout Charolais Ranch

Many repeat buyers, plus a few new faces, were on hand for the annual Stout Charolais bull sale at Philip Livestock. The sun was shining, and you almost didn’t need a jacket. The bidders had a great opportunity to walk through the bulls to make their selections.

Stout Charolais is owned by Jerry and Annie Stout and their children. They offer a first year breeding season guarantee and continue to feed these bulls until May 1, when bulls are semen tested and delivered.

In moderate condition and not trimmed, the bulls presented themselves in their natural condition. Bred to be heavy bodied, with natural thickness and big ribeyes, these bulls are a good fit for many commercial operations.

Philip Livestock has built a reputation for selling good Charolais-cross calves, and many of them are sired by Stout Charolais bulls.
