Lisco and M Diamond 18th Annual Angus Range Bull Sale
“From the hub of cow country, come cattle born and bred with the drive to thrive.” Lisco Angus, owned by Dick Lisco, and M Diamond Angus, owned by Brad Boner, and their families, hosted an extra big crowd for their annual production sale at Glenrock, WY. These two guys are really well liked and the beautiful day combined for, perhaps, their strongest sale ever – start to finish. Their customers believe in Dick and Brad, and they readily bid to buy every bull in the offering.
These two cattle herds share one philosophy – breeding cattle that can thrive under tough range conditions with limited inputs of feed and labor. The Angus females are the heart of their breeding program. A cow that can utilize forage, breed back and calve early is the ultimate goal. Dick and Brad place strong emphasis on fertility, fleshing ability, udder quality, mothering ability, disposition and structural soundness.
