Franz Charolais and Red Angus
January 2, 2019 | View PDF
What once started as a way to make a living turned into a family run ranch consisting of 60 registered purebred red Angus cows, 100 head of commercial red Angus cattle, 25 Charolais cattle, and a cross of Charolais and red Angus feeder calves. "We crossbreed our Charolais and Red Angus cattle to produce our feeder calves. Our Charolais bulls we just use mainly for ourselves, but we sell our yearling red Angus bulls private treaty," said John Franz.
The Franz Ranch sits just 20 miles north west of Sidney, Montana. The ranch started in 1959 with Ray Franz who wanted to start raising cattle to make money. Now 59 years later, Ray and his son, John, work on the ranch together. Ray's other son, David, owns a ranch in Wibaux, Montana, which he works jointly with his brother and dad.
The Franz Ranch will be selling registered red Angus bulls private treaty this year. If interested in Franz's yearling bulls you can call John at 406-798-3675.
