We are a third and forth generation black angus seedstock ranch. The ranch is run by John and Stephanie Hatzenbuhler along with our sons John Ross and Ty. We breed around 550-600 females annually and are located in south central North Dakota. All income from this ranch is generated by the ranch and our small grains operation. We focus on performance and maternal traits, the two qualities that put money in every ranches pocket. The angus cow has so many traits that make the breed successful, we are focused on utilizing all the natural traits and adding payweight at weaning time and maternal value to the cows so they breed and last in any environment. We hold an annual production sale the last Friday in January at the ranch selling the top 40% of our bull calves.We are proud to have formed a partnership with Alta Genetics and many of our bulls are owned in partnership with them. Our goals are very similar being performance and maternal. In the end the calves tell the story and many times we have said, "those calves are better than their sire." That's when you know you've done it right!
