Tony and Karen Messmer hosted their annual production sale on Feb. 24 at Stockmen’s Livestock in Dickinson, ND. Although the weather was chilly with a bit of a breeze, the sun was shining bright and the sale barn was full of new and repeat Messmer bull buyers, including a host of purebred breeders.

Due to health reasons and the desire to slow down a bit, the Messmer’s dispersed their cowherd the fall of 2008. This sale offering was the result of an aggressive ET program that was expanded the spring of 2008, before the decision to disperse was made. The two-year-old bulls were bulls held back especially for this sale and had never before been offered to the public.

This was a thick, stout set of Red Angus bulls, the result of 48 years of strict culling and planned mating. There were several top herd sire prospects in the offering. Since these were all ET calves, the entire sale offering was extremely uniform from top to bottom. The heifer calves were top of the line and most would never have been for sale if Tony and Karen were staying in the business. This was truly a great opportunity to purchase some of the best Red Angus genetics the breed has to offer.



The top selling bull on the day was Lot 26, Messmer Revelation W016, a 3/7/09 son of Beckton Julian GG B571 and out of the great donor cow Messmer Pandora M186. This bull has EPDs of BW -2.4, WW 34, YW 67 and Milk 22. He sold to Leland Red Angus of Sidney, MT for $9,000.
