Friedt Herefords Production Sale, February 13, 2019, Dickinson, ND!
In an effort to bring you the most up to date EPD’s, we blood typed a large number of the yearling bulls and sale heifers. We have received corrections on sires on four bulls and one heifer. These corrections have been made at the AHA. The corrected pedigrees are on 811, 841, 8101, and heifer 869. You can view the new pedigrees on our website by going to “Upcoming Sale” under the “For Sale” tab. At this point we have not determined the sire of 821.
We have been busy getting ready for the sale. The cattle will be at Stockmen’s West in Dickinson on Monday February 11.
We have been calving since January 15 and as many of you know the weather has been brutal. Thankfully we have adequate barn space to get us through the rough spots.
Our final weights were taken earlier than normal as we were hesitant to run the cattle through the alley ways and chutes to avoid any injury to the animals.
We have received inquiries about how we select the bulls we offer as two year olds and if they are hold overs from the previous year. This is not the case. We use March 15 as our cut-off date for yearling bulls to be in the sale. These bulls were born after this date and are what we are offering as two year olds.
We believe there is enough diversity among the sire groups to offer a good choice for your needs as a herd sire. If you have any questions regarding the cattle or the sale, don’t hesitate to call Gary. We hope to see you Wednesday February 13 at 1 pm at Stockmen’s West in Dickinson.
Friedt Herefords is located near Mott, in beautiful Southwestern North Dakota. This family run operation started with the purchase of yearling heifers in 1977 when Gary was a junior in High School. Gary & Kirsten are the 4th generation living and raising their family on the farm. The crew of family at Friedt Herefords includes Aaron Friedt, Lindsey & Drew Courtney, and Megan & Dusty Dukart. Our goal is to raise functional and efficient cattle that will thrive in a commercial herd atmosphere. We believe we are using the highest quality genetics and performance in an eye appealing package. These cattle are the kind that will add pounds, give big rib-eyes, and marbling the feedlots are looking for. Performance and ultrasound data is used to reaffirm our results. Easy calving, good milking cows are also a must in our herd.
