Forster Red Angus 2009 Bull Sale

Scott DirkKenny Forster making the presale announcements at the Annual Forster Red Angus Bull sale.

Forster Red Angus was one of the pioneer breeders of Red Angus cattle in North Dakota. Larry and Sally Forster started raising Red Angus in 1967. Today the operation is run by their son Kenny and his family.

This is a true grass operation. The cows calve in the pasture in May and June with a 45-day calving period. The bulls are carried through the winter on minimal grain and hay then turned out on grass for the summer. By utilizing this management practice and a strict culling program, Kenny feels it shows the bulls true genetic potential to do more with less.

This year’s sale offering had a nice cross section of both calving ease and growth bulls. The bulls are structurally correct and have the genetic potential to sire excellent market topping calves.
