Comments: This red & white spotted steer is one of the very best calve that I have had this year!! Sired by our Solid Gold Son (Born Free) and out of a TH & PHA Carrying Double Vision x Double Stuff cow. He is as powerful and free and easy moving as any steer of any color anywhere!! This steer has been weaned, castrated, and put on feed for less than a month!! His size is perfect!! You can show this one from Jan – April and be contending to win. He is also dual purpose, he works hair or slick!! Don’t miss this opportunity to own a real good shorthorn steer…

Comments: The Blue Beast! This is our deepest set of steers in years – maybe ever – and this one is surely a favorite and ready to win big right away. He is so big middled and stout with perfect hair and the chubby, soft, sound look that wins every time. Go, Blue!

Remembering Logan Rau

Today we will remember the life of Logan Rau. As the fifth generation Rau working the land, Logan was a farmer and rancher through and through. He was a great cattleman that we will truly miss. Logan will be remembered best by his unforgettable smile and his ability to ‘tell it how it was’ one minute and make you laugh the next.
