It's a Big Week for Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Sales

We're mid-way through October and the office is a flurry of activity. Today is the deadline for breeders to submit their weights for the next National Cattle Evaluation. The phones are busy and the mail--paper and electronic--is pouring in. Our field staff are also very busy as we're in the heart of the fall sale run.

We have three Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Sales taking place today, and three more tomorrow. In fact, between today and next Friday, there are 44 Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Sales! It's a very big, busy week for the Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Sale program.

Our field staff are sending positive reports on the sales that have taken place so far. Prices are higher than last year and things look good for a successful fall sale run for the Angus breed. Good cattle continue to sell well and command good prices. Poor quality cattle don't do as well. And Angus tagged cattle continue to be in demand with buyers looking specifically for Angus tags.

Our field staff are often asked why anyone using Angus genetics wouldn't use Angus tags to visually and electronically identify their Angus influenced animals. Remember, all you need to purchase tags is one registered parent. We offer a number of ordering options and ship the tags direct to you.

If you're selling cattle with Angus genetics this fall, be sure to get Angus tags in their ears. And whether you're buying or selling, take the time to visit a Canadian Angus Rancher Endorsed Sale--there are lots to choose from and there's sure to be one near you. Don't forget to say hi to our field staff.
