Sandhill Red Angus
January 4, 2023 | View PDF
Andrew and McKenzie Johnson have been raising registered Red Angus in Northeastern Montana since 2006. Andrew's father, Floyd, had a registered Angus herd and when Andrew was able to attain some red cows from his father, they were able to begin raising Registered Red Angus near Froid, MT.
The Johnsons focus on producing strong maternal females and believe that's what makes them successful. Every year, they look to buy customers' heifer calves back to breed them. They breed around 1000 heifers every year. Some go back into the commercial herd, and some are sold as bred heifers and pairs.
Females at Sandhill Red Angus are bred and raised to be hard working cows. The cows are in an open pasture, calve on their own with no assistance and run like a commercial ranch. They believe the registered females should be able to calve on their own, get their calf up and get them going. The Montana conditions are brutal at times, but their cows strive to birth hardy calves with vigor, that natural instinct to get up and go.
Sandhill Red Angus's Annual Production Sale will be held Tuesday, March 7 at Sidney Livestock Auction, featuring 70 Red Angus yearling bulls, 100 commercial Red Angus bred heifers, and 100 Red Angus 3-year-old cows.
