Jerry and Annie Stout, along with Jordan Stout and his family, hosted a good crowd, with more snow expected across the state. The Stout bulls sire some of the top-selling feeder cattle sold in western South Dakota.
These yearling Charolais bulls are raised on the Stout Ranch near Kadoka, South Dakota. Long-noted for their muscle and growth, the Stouts have worked hard in their genetic search to continually improve the performance of these bulls in order for their customers to produce maximum pounds.
These Stout bulls have been responsible for some of the high dollar per head feeder cattle that have sold in this area. The majority of the bidding came from cattlemen who have purchased from Stout Charolais in the past.
