Important Details & Links
The entire Thomas family would like to welcome you to our 47th Production Sale on October 17, 2019. From our humble beginnings 72 years ago, we have seen demand for Angus genetics and the growth of our breed continue to soar.
For nearly three-quarters of a century, we have been breeding cattle with the “big picture” in mind. We are constantly searching for outliers that excel with the genetic capability to produce sound, functional, high maternal cattle that are also superior for carcass quality. The real world proof is in the fact that the majority of our bulls are being utilized in rugged western conditions and Thomas females are currently working in prominent programs across the country. These productive females are easy feshing, highly fertile, sound, good structured cows with impeccable udders that are producing stout, highly sought after calves.The vast majority of our bull customers sell into branded beef programs simply because the genetics ft and the programs seek them out.
Utilizing technology has always been important to us. One of the latest steps we are taking is feed effciency testing a portion of our sale bulls. The results of this testing of a small group will be available prior to the sale. We are just getting started in this arena, yet already are convinced that it will be another valuable tool in our kit for selecting herd sires as well as donor females.The addition of this effciency data fts with our use of the $Proft Index. These tools along with the technologies we have already adopted allow us to select cattle that increase proftability in the real world. -- We at Thomas Angus Ranch are committed to being the number one source in the nation for proft oriented seedstock.
Another resource we at Thomas Angus Ranch are pleased to offer are additional personnel to assist you in genetic selection as well as marketing. Cole Owens has joined our operation to assist our customers in marketing their cattle. Cole comes to us from the video cattle marketing industry and will be a great resource in working with your video rep, sale barn or whichever resource you use to market your calves. Please feel free to contact Cole with marketing or contracting your calves. Clint Brightwell is another outstanding member of our team that is a great resource in cattle evaluation and has shown over the past several years to be of great assistance in directing the right genetics to the right operations. I encourage you to rely on these two individuals as well as myself, Lori or any of our staff for your genetic and marketing needs.
This sale promises to be our most exciting offering yet. More than 220 bulls sell that are the right kind. Bulls with a tremendous amount of muscle, depth and with the pedigrees and numbers to match. Bulls that will make a proft for the commercial cow/calf producer, the feeder and create demand among consumers.
From our family to yours, we would be pleased to have you as our guest at our 47th Annual Sale. The bull sale will start at noon on October 17th. Please join us at our Party Barn on Wednesday evening, October 16th for a gathering of good friends and good spirits.

We hope to see you there. If we can answer any question, don’t hesitate to call.
