Where do I begin? I’m trying to think of the best way to say this without sounding like a Spickler family and Angus groupie. But either way they were both immaculate. Good people and good cattle is what makes this industry fun to be in and here at the Spickler Ranch South they are the best of the best (people and cattle). Notice this is where commercial cattlemen and purebred breeders come, it’s called the source. This is the source of thick and heavy muscled bulls, the source of high maternal females, and the source of top-notch customer service. Need I say more? Here’s the cream of the crop:
