Fortune’s Rafter U Cross Angus is a solid rancher seedstock program whose Angus bulls have found strong favor with western South Dakota cowmen. Their priorities are maternal performance, quality, and doing good business with ranchers. These are deep-bodied, thick-made bulls that will sire females that are easy to raise. New this year were the front-end embryo heifers offered for sale.
A family outfit, headquartered out of Quinn, South Dakota, Roger Fortune, and wife, Bonna, and their son, Cory along with his son, Riley, have developed a strong following. Many repeat buyers have found success with Fortune bulls, and the Fortune guarantee is well-documented by their customers.
