DeGrand Angus Annual Bull Sale

DeGrand Angus is a fifth and sixth generation family operation dedicated to supplying quality seedstock to the commercial cattlemen of Montana, South Dakota, Nebraska and beyond.

This is a no-frills operation. The calves are not fed any creep feed, and are not pushed in any way to achieve excessive gains. In fact, the bulls are fed a growing ration for a moderate gain of 2 pounds per day throughout the winter. The sale bulls came to town in their everyday clothes; in decent flesh, but far from overly fleshy. The average back fat on sale bulls was 0.09 inches. By managing the bulls this way Art DeGrand believes they are better able to evaluate the cowherd. The cows need to be moderate framed with a quiet disposition, and must capable of weaning a big calf in the harsh, ever changing, Montana environment.

The DeGrand family is in the business to sell quality bulls to repeat customers that will not fall apart in the breeding pasture. That philosophy has is working, as the bleachers at the Fallon Co. Fairgrounds arena were full of buyers and bidders. Over half of the sale offering had a birth EPD of 1.0 or less. These bulls are bred and managed for fertility, soundness and longevity. Of the 94 bulls cataloged, all passed the breeding soundness exam. Only two did not make the trip to town, due to injury. These bulls will gain weight in the breeding pasture while getting cows bred.
