When Tri-State Livestock News asked our Facebook followers to tell us which bull sale offers the best meal, we heard about corn, potato salad, pie and more. Cattle owners and bull sale meal connoisseurs hailed culinary delights from Montana, Wyoming, North and South Dakota and Nebraska.

It only seemed fair that we share some of the tasty recipes with our readers.

Susie Felton of Felton Angus Ranch, Springdale, Montana, was not surprised that their customers commented on their staple bull sale meal.

“My husband’s mom used to prepare the meal for the sale but now we feed 250 people and my little ranch kitchen couldn’t keep up,” she said, explaining that the meat is now catered. She quickly tracked down the recipe for our readers, though, and was excited to share for Thanksgiving.

Save room for pie

“Good bulls and good food” is what you will find at Felton Angus Ranch said Beverly Draper of Draper Ranch, Red Lodge, Montana.

The Felton Angus Ranch production sale, held the second Monday in February, is known for its beefy lunch. Along with bulls, bred heifers, replacement heifer calves and broke ranch horses the Felton Angus Ranch sale lunch features prime rib, garlic mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans with bacon, the always popular broccoli salad and dinner roll.

Three years ago the Park County Cattlewomen approached Felton Angus Ranch about a pie fundraiser to be held in conjunction with the bull sale. It seemed the perfect complement to the savory meal starring beef. In a fun partnership, a delectable selection of homemade pies now perfectly complete the satisfying main course. Neighbors and customers have learned to stick around to the end of the sale and bid on a pie to take home. All proceeds go to the Park County Cattlewomen.

“We appreciate your business so we want to serve you the best” says Karol Felton. Join them for their bull sale (and lunch) Feb. 8, 2016, at the 43rd annual Felton Angus Ranch production sale in Springdale, Montana.
