Charolais Open Range Sales

Red Angus – Angus – Char x Heifers For Sale

Over the many years we have purchased high-end Angus and Red Angus females out of the North Country bringing them down to Kansas. These Northern genetics make up our entire commercial and cooperator cow herds as we mate them to our Charolais bulls for the F-1 Angus and F-1 Red Angus crosses.

Selling Northern females bred to our bulls has helped us to gain many new customers. When folks are able to witness for themselves the caving ease, quick growth and overall usefulness of the Angus - Red Angus - Charolais cross, they often come back to us for Charolais bulls. These breed crosses are rapidly becoming the most popular cattle in sale rings and feedlots all across the country.

In addition, this cross using our Charolais bulls are producing high-end quality F-1 females in our herd as well as in many customer herds. We have customers running large numbers of “Buckskin and Smoky” females that have proven to be excellent production cows with longevity.
