Schauer Angus, owned by Doug and Bryant Schauer and their families, hosted a big crowd for their annual bull sale at Faith Livestock. These two brothers have worked hard to build this good herd, and to develop this strong commercial trade.
The Schauer program is centered around the female. Their cattle are bred to be very maternal, with a lot of performance in the background. They breed to the best AI sires in the land to make the best replacement heifers possible for their herd.
Beyond breeding better cattle, customer satisfaction is their No. 1 priority. All you have to do is listen to a few of their good repeat buyers to see why they keep coming back.
They choose their sires very carefully, and they had their feature herd sire, "Cisco Kid,"on display at the sale. The sale moved along at a good pace, with very strong demand all the way through.
The top selling bull of the day was Lot 1, selling to repeat buyer, Denny Topf, Charter Oak, Iowa. This son of Whitestone Cisco Kid Z120 was out of a daughter of Leachman New Design 878-4570 who has a birth weight ratio of 98 and a weaning weight ratio of 110 on three calves.
