Letter From the Ranch
May 4, 2022
We survived another mild winter here in northeastern Oklahoma and have been blessed with recent rainfall. Our neighbors out west are just beginning to get some relief and we continue to pray for their recovery. Here at the ranch our spring has been slow to arrive however, with the recent warm nights and abundant moisture the signs of new growth are appearing each day.
In studying the markets this new year there appears to be much change on the horizon. Market figures are being reported that annual culling is increasing at a rate quicker than anticipated and beef slaughter is up 17.5% from a year ago. Many replacement females that were selected for breeding have been taken out of the cycle and put on feed which in turn lowers our gross impact for the coming years. That combined with beef at a demand not seen since the 1950’s, we see it as opportunity to be market ready sooner than later.
As our upcoming sale quickly approaches, we are excited with the quality and condition of the females being sold. With several young pairs and heavy breds being offered, additionally, the Swanson Ranch is bringing 80 head of exceptional Angus 1st calf heifer pairs from western Oklahoma. Highlighting just a few of the fall breds, we have a small group of A Bar Ranch heifers along with an outstanding herd of 3 and 4 year old cows from Montana bred to sons of Connelly Consensus bulls. These females are proven, young cows that will be an asset to any cattlemen or cattlewomen’s operation. Quality in size, age, and breed; these 3 and 4 year old cows are ready to perform.
We hope you join us here at the ranch May 14th 2022 in Claremore, Oklahoma or online at www.liveauctions.tv.We will have video and additional information of the cattle available by request or online at abarranch.com or follow us on Facebook.
