Leland Red Angus will be hosting their 33rd annual production sale on March 11 at the ranch located in SW McKenzie County, 35 miles SE of Sidney in the Squaw Gap Community. The ranch, whichg has raised registered Red Angus for 50 years, is operated by Melvin and Luella Leland and their son and daughter-in-law Todd and Carla Leland. Homesteaded in 1911 by Melvin Leland's father, Leland Red Angus breeds over 500 registered Red Angus females per year and will market 180 bulls and 65 yearling heifers, including about 40 fall born, 18 month old bulls from daughter Tracey Koester and her family in Steele, ND. The ranch operates on a combination of deeded, leased, and permitted National Grasslands and are regularly involved in national, state-wide, and local breed and beef industry organizations. Though the cowherd is managed on the range year-round, the sale bulls are developed in the ranch feed-lot, with most of the feed being produced on 1200 acres of hay and cropland. Leland Red Angus is dedicated to developing wholesome, quality meat.

"Much of the herd is bred by artificial insemination and features genomic verification by DNA and ultrasound testing for economical relevant traits and carcass values, a service provided by our son-in-law Dr. JJ Hovde," commented Melvin Leland noting that they use as much technology as is applicable. "We are dedicated to the values of rural and family lifestyle and the 104-year legacy of the ranch is expected to continue as Todd and Carla become the third generation of Leland ownership."
