This was a dispersal of the cowherd, but Hugh was not ready to be totally out of the cow business, so he did keep a few special females back. Watch for the bulls from these cows to be sold at the ranch in Jan. 2021.

History was made when Hugh and Eleanor Ingalls dispersed the Ingalls Centennial Angus Cow Herd in Belle Fourche, SD on Dec. 1. 531 Females went through the auction ring, all going to new homes across the region to continue raising quality Angus genetics. The Ingalls ranch started in 1894 with the first Registered Angus cattle introduced in the early 1920s. Hugh Ingalls acquired his first Registered Angus heifer in 1942. That heifer went on to be the nucleus of the Ingalls Centennial Angus cowherd.

It was a bittersweet day for Hugh and Eleanor, but a very successful event with seven volume buyers purchasing over 20 head each.
