The Ellingson family held their annual production sale at the Martin Schaff sale facility near St. Anthony, ND on Feb. 4. There was a huge crowd of bidders and buyers on hand to evaluate this sale offering.
This set of bulls were stout and full of red meat. They are all a direct result from 70 years of strict culling and genetic selection.
Chad and his family are the fourth generation to be raising Angus cattle on their ranch and take great pride in the fact that all sale bulls were born and raised on their ranch. A special feature for this years sale, were the commercial females from the Ellingson’s past bull buyers. These females were all sired by or bred to Ellingson Angus bulls and were very well accepted.
