The Roundup -

Rambur Charolais Angus Cattle

Rambur Charolais is located just south of Sidney, MT and was founded more than 30 years ago by Howard Rambur. When he started in the ranching industry, Howard 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 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 also to 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 its breed and now has 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 a good carcass structure. Cows are bred to be tough on the ranch, and they have to be able to calve easily, flesh easily, and have fertility and structural soundness in the rough Montana climate.

At the end of the day, Rambur runs 300 Charolais cows as well as 150 head of Angus cows. The ranch also offers Angus bulls along with its famous Charolais bull program. The operation farms about 600 acres of corn and hay each, and includes an on-site feedlot.

Rambur Charolais will market its cattle on April 8 at the ranch. Stop by and visit or call them at 406-482-3255.
