The decision to disperse a cowherd is never easy and not a decision Ken & Ann Kasselder took lightly. After many years of breeding and developing an outstanding cowherd Ken and Ann decided it was time to let the cows go. With that being said, a dispersal sale is a great opportunity for buyers to add the best of the best of the Kasselder Angus cows into their programs.
Ken Kasselder took great pride in developing this herd of cows and the results were very evident on sale day. The cows were in great shape with healthy shiny calves at side. The cows had eye appeal, great dispositions and excellent udders. The pedigrees were loaded with the top cow builder sires in the Angus breed. In order to not put additional stress on the few cows that had not calved yet by sale day, those were left home and sold via video.
Topping the pairs was lot 86, KFS EXAR Upshot 4033-401, a Mar. 2014 daughter of EXAR Upshot 05628 and out of a Mytty in Focus dam. This cow has epds of CED 9 BW 1.3 WW 53 YW 97 Milk 26 and sold with her Mar. 17 KFS Efficient 2105 bull calf at side for $6,750 to Casey Redman, Burwell, Neb.
