Many Gardiner Angus Ranch customers share our common philosophy regarding beef production. These customers are professional cow-calf producers allied with the GAR philosophy and committed to the discipline required to produce seedstock with added value throughout the food chain.

As the beef industry makes scientific progress through the development of molecular breeding values and marker assisted EPDs, Gardiner Angus Ranch and its allied producers will aggressively use the data to develop new and better programs, offer more services and continue producing superior Angus genetics.

The decision to add a third sale to our marketing plan is the result of many conversations with customers in the past several years. The 165 bulls in the sale fit the GAR "pounds in the right package" philosophy with an emphasis on reproductive efficiency, calving ease, docility, post-weaning growth, feedlot performance and carcass value. These bulls qualify for the same customer service opportunities as our spring and fall offerings--free delivery, the Gardiner Guarantee, 5% repeat buyer discount, revenue sharing on semen interest, $100 off if you haul and access to USPB delivery rights. If this late-spring sale fits your management strategy, give us a call or study the catalog.
