Over 150 of the best black angus bulls will slide into the auction gate this weekend as New England’s 21 Angus Ranch gets ready to sell their cream of the crop to the highest bidder this weekend.
Located just outside of New England, the 21 Angus Ranch will host its 28th annual bull sale at 1 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 30, featuring 159 top-cut black angus bulls. For those unable to attend the event in person, buyers will be able to bid online via DV Auction. Last year, Wolf sold 42 bulls via the internet. These high-quality bulls have been known to sell at an average price of nearly $6,000.
Owner of the 21 Angus Ranch Marc Wolf wants buyers to rest assured they are getting the top of the line when they buy from his ranch, for only the biggest and best livestock will be sold Saturday.
“(With the sale), 80% of these bulls are calving ease that will work well on heifers/cows without sacrificing performance or pay rate,” Wolf said. “The bulls are developed slowly at home to ensure soundness and longevity... no hoof trimming … They are a well-mannered, extremely uniform and deep bodied group.”
Upon being purchased, the young bulls will be kept and fed during the winter at no charge to the new owner. In March, the bulls will be semen tested and will later be delivered to their new owners.
For 28 years, Wolf and his family have been selling top-cut angus bulls to customers throughout the United States. Wolf has delivered bulls to North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Minnesota, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Kansas and Iowa. Wolf enjoys delivering bulls to customers who, he said, are like family.
“It’s nice to have the customers return to our sale every year. They get to be like family and we have repeat customers that have been here from day one that have bought [bulls] 27 years in a row… (These sales) are almost like a reunion of friends and family,” he said.
For Wolf, family is important. Without the help of his two sons John and Jake; his wife, Anne, his father, Archie and his mother, Diane, the ranch would not be the success it is today. According to Wolf, the ranch has been in operation for more than 114 years, for exactly five generations, 21 Angus Ranch has been owned and operated by the Wolf family. Wolf said he is proud to have three of those five generations of family members working all together at the ranch.
“(This year) marks our 28th year of producing angus feed stock… We are so excited to offer these genetics to you. We aim to raise angus cattle that will improve your bottom line. It’s our lifestyle, our living and our commitment to you,” he added .
A free lunch will be provided prior to the start of the sale. The bull sale will take place at 11175 64th St. SW, New England. Online bidding can be done at dvauction.com/video_catalogs/6061.
