It was my pleasure to sell along side Col. Al Conover and Col. Eddie Burks, both of these gentlemen do a excellent job.  Congratulations to all of the Sydgen Crew on a Great Sale!  I hope you all enjoy the pictures and video.

North American

This past weekend I was in Louisville, KY for the North American.  I had the opportunity to visit with a lot of different people that I had not seen in along time.  The cattle were excellent in all of the breeds that I saw.  It was very interesting to go to some of the Angus Association meetings.  I was able to serve as a voting delegate for the first time and was honored to do so.  It is always enjoyable to meet new folks and catch up with old friends. 
Tomorrow I will head to Mexico, MO to sell the Sydenstricker Genetics production sale on Saturday. The cattle look great and interest has been good, if I can be of assistance to any of you let me know I will be glad to assist you with your purchases. 
Have a great weekend.

Exciting Week

What a exciting week it has been since last Saturday.  On Saturday I sold the XL Angus Mature Cow Herd Dispersal, in Springfield, MO we sold 68 lots to average $2040.  Then that evening I was in Columbia, MO to sell the Calf Quest sale where we had 22 lots of Club Calves, the Travel Channel filmed the sale for the show Truck Stop Missouri, the show should be airing in March.  On Sunday I had the opportunity of visiting Sydenstricker Genetics in Mexico, MO and viewed the sale offering for the Nov. 19th Production Sale.  As in years past the offering is outstanding with females and bulls that can improve any operation. Check out the Sales & Events Calendar page for a link to the sale catalog.
This has been a busy week with four car auctions and in the morning I leave for Louisville, KY for the North American. I look forward to being at the show as well as some of the other Angus events that will be taking place.

XL Angus Upcoming Sale

Visited XL Angus in Seneca, MO and previewed the sale cattle for Saturday's Mature Cow Herd Dispersal to be held in Springfield, MO.  A good set of cows will be offered with many Pathfinders selling.  The fall calving cows have a stout set of AI sired calves at there side with many of them being herd sire and show prospects.  This sale is sure to gain the interest of many cattle producers, if I can be of any assistance to you in selection of the sale lots give me a call.  Here is a link to the sale catalog.

2011 American Royal

What a exciting time we had at the American Royal this past weekend.  We were able to see lots of friends that we hadn't seen in quite a while.  The shows were competitive and enjoyable to watch.  The Champion Open Angus Heifer was shown by Margaret Spencer of NE and Reserve was shown by Trista Bates of MT.  Express Ranches of OK exhibited the Grand and Reserve Champion Bulls.  Congratulations to Gregory Connell and Parker Henley exhibiting the Grand Champion Charolais Heifer in the open show. Also congrats goes out to Crutcher Cattle Co. and Big River Charolais they sold they Reserve Champion Open Charolais Heifer. In the Low Percentage Simmental Show Kenzie Strickland of OK, exhibited both the Champion and  Reserve Heifer, the Reserve Heifer was raised and sold by Owen Bros. Cattle Co.

Another highlight of the weekend, Rachel and I were able to go to the Rodeo and Reba concert, the best part was that our seats were only 3 rows off the floor.  It was defiantly a thrill and we thank Jennie Owen for helping us get the tickets.

Good weekend in KC!!
