The Logterman family, brothers Dwight and LeRoy, and their families have built their reputation on selling range ready Hereford and Angus bulls at their annual production sale. The bulls presented were in great condition, not overly fed and will stay sound in the breeding pastures for several seasons. A sure sign of a program that works is the attendance of repeat buyers, and the seats were full repeat buyers for this sale.
The two-year-old Angus bulls were primarily April and May 2014 bulls born on the South Dakota ranch. The yearling Angus bulls are primarily Jan. and Feb. born on the Montana, ranch and hand selected to sell as yearlings. The two-year-old Angus and the two-year-old Hereford bulls had specifically been developed to sell as two year olds and none had been offered for sale in the past.
