Sonstegard Cattle Co., LLC, hosted a big crowd on a chilly western Minnesota afternoon at the River Ranch. It was a great Red Angus female sale. Since this was my first trip to this farm, I would have to say I was very impressed with the cattle and especially with the disposition of these productive females.
I could see that this family has a great feeling for their customers, as their buyers bought this good set of females with confidence.
