Panhandle Cattle Co. is a Red Angus Chiefline seedstock program with a long established connection to the commercial beef industry. Headquartered in Nebraska’s famed Sandhills ranch country and backed by one of the Red Angus breed’s most recognized cowherds, they have been an important source of herd building genetics for ranchers and breeders, both, featuring linebred, trait balanced breeding stock in volume.
A 33 year program, Linda and Clint Andersen and family staged their 27th annual production sale at ranch headquarters of Lakeside, NE. They presented a strong offering of range raised, two-year-old bulls and fancy Chiefline heifers to buyers from 16 states across the country.
Established upon foundation George Chiga Chiefline genetics, the Panhandle program is based upon generations of linebreeding, production testing and building upon elite cow families. Driven by the economics of the commercial beef industry with a trait balance from cowherd to carcass, efficient, functional, productive mother cows are their number one priority.
A fast paced auction saw cowmen and breeders compete to invest in Panhandle time-tested, potent, problem-free, total-trait genetics with stock selling in a price range to fit every cattleman’s budget. It was another strong event for a family that’s long been dedicated to breeding great cows and has played an important role in expanding the influence of the Red Angus breed across the face of America’s commercial beef cattle production.
