Stortz Angus Ranch 32nd Annual Production Sale Feb. 22
January 4, 2023 | View PDF
Stortz Angus Ranch has been in the cattle business since the early 1900s. Located against the rugged Big Horn Sheep Mountains in Lindsay, MT, the ranch has withstood the test of time through consistent breeding and prioritized selection decisions. With over 30 years of utilizing the top genetics in the Angus breed through artificial insemination, the cattle you see today are as good as they come.
“We focus our efforts in making functional cattle that prosper in the rough terrain and extreme weather that we see here in eastern Montana,” commented Ted Stortz. “Disposition, mothering ability and longevity are the most important,” Ted explained when describing what traits they focus on when selecting females. Stortz Angus cows are turned out on grass around May 1. The calves are then weaned the first week of October. Both cows and calves are expected to be low maintenance – cows must be able to raise a calf on their own and calves do not see any creep feed before being weaned.
The bulls you see in the Stortz Angus Ranch Annual Bull Sale are a product of years of experience and industry knowledge. Stortz Angus strives to produce bulls with growth traits that will pay for commercial producers while still maintaining “sleep at night” birthweights. But cookie-cutter bulls are not their thing. “We like to offer a selection of bulls and genetics to our customers. We always have a group of good calving ease and maternal bulls but also offer high weaning weight, more growth bulls,” Ted commented. Ted also explained they select bulls heavily on docility.
The Stortz family invites you to their 32nd Annual Production Sale held Feb. 22, 2023 at the Glendive Livestock Exchange beginning at 1 p.m. New this year, the sale will also be broadcast online through DV Auctions if you are unable to make it to Glendive. Seventy Registered Angus Bulls and 70 commercial Angus heifers will sell.
You can view the bulls and females along with their dams prior to the sale anytime at the ranch north of Lindsay. Bulls will also be on display at the Beef Breeders Show in Miles City Feb. 3. Feel free to contact Ted at 406-584-7585 with any questions or if you would like a catalog mailed to you. You can also keep up with Stortz Angus Ranch on Facebook! Stortz Ranch wishes you Peace and Joy throughout the holiday season and the New Year! See you in February!
