The Roundup -

Rambur Charolais Angus Cattle


Rambur Charolais is located just south Sidney, MT and was founded more than 30 years ago by Howard Rambur. When Howard started in the ranching industry, he wanted to work with a breed of cattle distinctly different from any other breeds in eastern Montana, so he chose the Charolais. The Charolais, at the time, was a relatively new breed to the area and it was still able to retain its full French heritage. Even though the breed grew quite large as adults, Howard had a goal to modify the Charolais to not only suit his customers, but to also ensure that the animals fit the Montana environment. The Charolais put on pounds quickly, which led to calving problems. Rambur then bred the animal down to a smaller frame, which led to calving ease. For decades, Rambur Charolais perfected their breed and they now have customers all over the country that use the Charolais bull on their first calf heifers.

Rambur's cattle have done well at the Denver Stock Show, have won top honors three times, and have even received Reserve Champion on several other occasions.

A Rambur Charolais cow's profile will have smooth shoulders for calving ease, sound feet and legs and good carcass structure. Cows are bred to be tough on the ranch, and have to be able to calve easy, flesh easy, and have fertility and structural soundness in the rough Montana climate.

At the end of the day, Rambur runs 250 Charolais cows as well as 100 head of Angus cows. The ranch also offers Angus bulls along with their famous Charolais bull program. The operation farms about 600 acres of corn and hay each, and includes an on-site feedlot. Stop by and visit Rambur Charolais, or call them at 406-482-3255.
