The Roundup -

North Dakota Rancher Carl Frisinger Enjoys the Mild Winter, Prepares for Upcoming Sale


The Early Morning Red Angus Ranch, located twelve miles south of Tioga, ND, will be marketing forty yearling Red Angus bulls and fifty yearling Red Angus heifers at Sitting Bull in Williston, ND, Friday April 29th at 1:00 pm central time. Owner and operator Carl Frisinger bought the ranch in 1965. Having grown up in a ranching family, Frisinger grew up raising Herefords. However, when they became hard to sell, he bought six Red Angus Cows from the Leland Drought Reduction Sale and started marketing Red Angus cattle in 1984 using Leland Red Angus bulls and Amber Light Red Angus bulls.

"Red Angus cows have a good disposition and good maternal qualities," said Frisinger, noting that the cows begin calving on their own in the hills in April and May. Calves are range-raised on the 2,050-acre ranch and the additional 5,000 acres Frisinger leases from a neighbor. November first, the calves are weaned and moved to the Sheldon Brothers Feedlot. "The Northwest Veterinary Clinic in Powers Lake makes sure they're all healthy. The quality of the cattle is second to none," he added.

The Early Morning Red Angus Ranch has a cow herd of 175, with 125 registered cows and 50 commercial cows. Part of the cattle are wintered on pastureland with coulees that provide protection from winter weather and two and three-year-old cattle are wintered at the homestead where they have access to barns during cold temperatures. Those interested are welcome to view the bulls at Sheldon Brothers Feedlot in Ray, ND. For more information, call 701-664-2668.
