Strohschein Angus held their 4th Annual Production Sale at Belle Fourche Livestock on March 23. Strohschein’s have been raising Angus cattle for over 16 years with the decision to start having a sale a few years back. They strive to produce cattle with great maternal traits for the commercial cattlemen and women. They really push for cattle with fertility, longevity and disposition so the cattlemen have fewer expenses and can keep a good producing cow in the herd longer. The sale drew a good crowd of folks from eastern Wyoming and Montana as well as western South Dakota to bid on this set of working bulls.
