The 38th Werning Cattle Co Annual Production Sale was held in the W/C heated sale facility at the ranch near Emery, SD, Feb. 12, 2019. Breeders from across the country and Canada were in attendance, on DV Auction or phone line to select genetics from this premier breeding program in the US. Genetics sold into 21 states and 2 Canadian provinces. Years of dedication and strict breeding decisions resulted in this stellar offering of herd bull prospects and beautiful bred heifers. A popular division again this year is the large selection of baldy and blaze face herd bull prospects, perhaps the largest seedstock provider of the chrome face in the country with quality second to none. Each year, there is a large number of return commercial cattlemen because they love the high performance power of the W/C bulls. When taking their calf crop from birth to the rail with true performance is a tribute of time tested genetics that return profit to the W/C customers’ bottom lines. This sale was again an all video sale with viewing on the big screens which was appreciated by the large crowd in attendance as the temps were a bit chilly and the wind was very prevalent.
Thank you to all of our repeat customers and new customers as well for your confident in the W/C program. We are honored to be your seed stock provider and look forward too many years of working together and continued friendship.
