2015 Family Ties Angus 2nd Annual Bull & Heifer Sale

2015 Family Ties Angus 2nd Annual Bull & Heifer Sale

Family Ties Angus focuses their herd on good strong traits that will work in all cattle farms and help to improve the herd they will work for. Achieving this is done by tight guidelines on BW, WW, maternal instinct and making the feed put into the animals do the work. We cull our calves very hard at birth and again at weaning time, ensuring that only the bulls that will do the job remain on the farm. We pay close attention to hair coat, feet, testicular size and frame size on the animals we sell. If the bull wouldn’t work in our herd, we don’t want it in someone else’s. We have been born and raised around cattle and started raising purebreds about 9yrs ago. We have slowly increased our herd to 80 purebred black cows, by careful selection of replacement heifers and some herd dispersal buys. We bought Gordon Braithwaite’s herd in December of 2011 and in May of 2013 we bought Gord Rattray’s herd of black cows. This has given us some great bloodlines and cows that have proven themselves to be great mothers and raise champion bulls. 


In 2013 Samantha and I decided that we would like to expand our cow herd and introduce a diff erent color Angus, while keeping all the same goals and beliefs we have raised the blacks on for the last 8 yrs. We spent countless hours walking Red Angus aft er Red Angus herd, hand picking a select group of females to start our Red Angus herd with. In the end we ended up purchasing 30 Red Pairs from well known breeders such as Yolo Acres Red Angus, Carnwood Red Angus and Road House Red Angus Holdings. Most of the calves at side were females and late April calves that you will see sell as 2yr old red bulls next year. 


We AI about 35 cows per year and have been raising and purchasing herdsires to make our herd better. In 2012 we bought the high seller at the Standard Hill sale; a $10,000 Tiger son. We also use an Sitz Upward son we purchased from Gord Rattray for $7000. Looking to expand our bull off ering to include more Networth 4200 bloodlines to the sale we rented GGRR Networth 1U from Garnier Ranching, Gus Garnier. Th is bull was purchased from Gord Rattray, based out of Marwayne, AB.
