Ken, Heather and Kendall Haas hosted their annual bull sale at the ranch near LaGrange, Wyoming, Jan. 27, 2015. This was the 33rd Annual sale for Ken Haas Angus and their most successful to date.
The spring-like weather allowed buyers to come early and sort through this great set of high quality bulls. By the time sale time rolled around, the seats were full of bidders and buyers, all looking for powerful Angus bulls sired by the top carcass quality bulls in the breed. Ken has paid particular attention to carcass quality without sacrificing eye appeal and calving ease and performance.
The bulls sired by home-raised herd sire KC Hass GPS garnered particular high interest and enthusiasm. GPS was sold in the 2008 sale and is leased to breeders in Australia and New Zealand. He has been performance tested with the top Angus Herd Sires from the USA, Australia and New Zealand with awesome results. This is a set of bulls that will add pounds to the feeder calves and beef on the hook.
