WELCOME TO OUR 15th ANNUAL PRODUCTION SALE
We Thank You for your interest and consideration of WEBO Bulls. WEBO Angus will absolutely stand behind our cattle, let us know if any issues come up. We will do what is right and will correct any problems to the best of our ability, keeping in mind you’ll be satisfied with the results.
Most of us who live in this region have not really enjoyed the last could of years, the droughts and cattle prices have tested our ranching skills as well as our faith. We have been building our cows to take on some of the load. We have been and will continue to keep tough hardworking cows that can take it, breeding back early and raising big strapping calves as our program’s main focus. After 2 years of drought our calves were 50#’s lighter last fall. Of course, it was harder on the younger calves. We’ve been diligently adding feed efficiency and good old fashioned hardiness to our cow herd. We have noticed before and again the last couple years, the frailer, mainly low birthweight lines breed later in the season, so we’ve added some punch to those cattle.
We sell our older shortterm cows every year but in addition we sell around 50 head of cows who are bred 45 to 60 days. We’ve put lots of pressure on fertility over the years and it has certainly paid off. It’s our belief the selection pressure for hardy-maternal cows not only keep us in business but also our commercial customers. Feed efficiency also pays dividends in the progeny, feed costs are huge for all of us. If our cattle only effectively reduce consumption by 10 to 15 % over several years in their offspring, that starts to add up quickly at both the feedlot and the ranch. We strive for this without effecting performance and reproduction.
Our program in a nut shell. We keep stiving to balance all traits in maternal indexes, then we look at the Feeder, Grid, Beef and watch the $Combination index. We also realize we can’t do extreme growth in our program as here in Wyoming we don’t usually have an abundance of feed needed for extremes. We stive for plenty of pounds & growth coupled with fertility and efficiency & we’ll take carcass when we can get it, but we can’t afford single trait selection in our program.
Our bulls are and will keep stepping up to meet your program. They are not burned out on hot feed, we strive to raise bulls that will sire market topping feeder calves, that grow and finish quickly, grade and hit the target weights of 1450# to 1550# in an efficient and timely manner. It’s also important to us that our bulls will last several years for our customers, with the hardy, get it done genetics added in the last few years, we think you will like them. There is also a set of good big 2 year old bulls, we have NEVER offered these bulls for sale, we keep some of our younger bulls exclusively for this sale. These older bulls can handle the miles to water, rough country and really get the job done. They have been PAP tested here and efficiency tested at Midland Bull Test.
Please come for lunch on Tuesday April 5th, 2022, we will start serving around Noon. Our local Cattlewomen serve a great beef lunch. Look the bulls over, make your own assessments and please feel free ask any questions you have. We are very grateful and honored that you allow us to have the opportunity to be your source for high quality Angus Bulls.
