Spickler Ranch held their annual production sale at the ranch near Glenfield, ND on May 3, 2010. It may have been a cold, windy day for May, but that didn’t seem to matter to the standing room only crowd of buyers that actively bid on this great offering of Angus genetics.

The Spickler Family has been ranching and selling seed stock in the James River Valley for over 70 years. Today the operation is run by third generation brothers Justin and Nathan Spickler and their families. Throughout those seven decades of ranching, the focus has always been to produce sound functional cattle that are adaptable to the extreme weather conditions this area has to endure. The mother cows need to have excellent udders and mothering ability with very few calving problems, breed back in a reasonable time frame and bring in a heavy calf at weaning time without the benefits of creep feed.

The bulls and heifers in the sale were backed by some of the most popular and up and coming herd bulls in the Angus breed. One of these particular herd bulls, S Chisum 6175, was bred and raised at Spickler Ranch selling to Genex in their 2007 sale.
