For the first
time ever, the two farms that brought you the past two National Champion bulls,
Bush Angus and Gamble Angus, will be jointly offering the complete top pick of
our spring heifer crop!
There are many “firsts” in our lives. Such as
our first day of school, our first basketball game, our first prom date,
and our first car. As time flies by our “firsts” are events like your
first child, your first junior show as a parent, your first calf crop to
surpass 700 lb. average, and your first National Champion. Doing something
for the very first time carries such a special feeling of expectation and
satisfaction that it remains with you forever. This is our very first all
female sale! It will be a special “first” event for both you and us!
This will be a history
making event for Bush Angus. The herd was established with the purchase of
Dakota Blackbird 51 in 1927 and has been in continuous production for 77
years. Every single member of our elite herd can be traced back to this
Welcome to the first
offering of the “Dakota Blackbird” family in volume. We are thrilled to
have as our sale partners, Gamble Angus. We consider them to be good
people, good cattlemen, and good friends. A big thank you to Angus Hall of
Fame in helping us get this event up and running.
Bush Angus consists of
Clifford and Beulah, Jim and Carol, and Scott, Jo, Brittany, and Tyler.
Clifford was a mere 11 years old when he accompanied his Dad on a trip of
30 miles to purchase Dakota Blackbird 51. He has seen the herd expand from
that one female to a very productive herd of 130 cows. Jim continued his
father’s early interest in performance testing as a important selection
tool, but added the importance of selecting for functionally correct
cattle with excellent quality and eye appeal. Scott has carried the
tradition of breeding great cattle by adding his sound judgment and
knowledge. This present day team represents 3 generations of breeders with
one goal in mind…to breed a quality product that will truly work for us
We are excited about
the depth of the offering assembled for this “first” time event. We are
not surprised by the depth of completeness of these females. After all, we
have been getting ready for this “first” female sale for 77 years!
Thanks for your interest!
