Sodak Angus Ranch is located in the prairie lands of northwestern South Dakota, and is owned by the Vaughn and Lois Meyer family. It’s always nice when the sale is held out at the ranch, and you can see the hard work that goes into raising quality bulls.

These bulls were big and well grown. This herd has developed a reputation for the maternal traits of calving ease, milk, and docility. In addition, they have added bloodlines to both the ed and Black Angus that will add extra performance and pounds to the calf crop. Many of the buyers were close friends and neighbors.
