The 5L family hosted another successful bull and female sale Nov. 8, 2013 at the ranch in Sheridan, Mont. It was a big day for more reasons than one as Larry and Lisa Mehlhoff celebrated their 20th wedding anniversary as well as the “Right for the Times” fall production sale. It was a brisk day but that didn’t keep potential cattle buyers out of the back pens to admire the “wide body” bulls and females offered. The 5L offspring are grown by one of the hardiest and most efficient cowherds in the country as top bulls and females were purchased by customers from Maryland to Washington state and everywhere in between. Everyone was wanting a piece of the 5L “rock” as Larry Mehlhoff opened the gates to the heart of their program by offering superb females carrying 5L top quality genetics. Congratulations to Larry and Lisa on their anniversary and hats off to the fall production sale with good food, good cattle, and great people.
