Wick Cattle, located in southwestern North Dakota, is owned by Zane and Mary Jo Wicks, and daughters, Josie and Mya. Wicks Cattle is strictly a Sim-Angus program, and they sell only the top third of their bulls. This was a great sale with many bidders and buyers on the seats.
The Wicks program believes that the cow is the foundation for a true set of herd bulls. They keep cows that have good maternal instinct and great udders, and those with milking ability who breed back easily. These high performing cows are bred to great sires which produce great dispositions, soundness, and tremendous weaning weights.
