Baker LeMar Angus held their annual production sale at St. Onge Livestock Auction, St. Onge, SD. The bulls in the sale represent over 65 years of dedicated Angus breeding.

With the passing of Leo Baker last fall, Mike and Sandy Baker are committed to keeping the legacy of Baker's LeMar Angus Ranch moving forward. They have invested in several new herd sired that when crossed on the Final Answer daughters in the herd should make for some excellent upcoming seedstock.
