Larry and Lisa Mehlhoff and their family hosted their annual spring “Right for the Times” bull sale at the ranch, March 30, 2011. This is truly a family operation, each and every family member playing an integral role in the day-to-day activities of the ranch. It is great to see a young ranch family so involved in all aspects of the ranching operations.

The goal at 5L Ranch is to raise cattle that will adapt to your environment – cattle that will convert the natural resources available efficiently and produce profits. These cattle have been rigidly culled, and only the top end was offered. With the somewhat volatile commodities market, cattle need to be able to adapt to whatever program works best for the buyers, whether that be a traditional feedlot operation or a grass-fed program. These bulls will produce cattle that will work in most any aspect of the industry, without forgetting the all important mother cow. Bulls that are truly “Right for the Times.”
