Welcome to the Sale... L NE STAR ANGUS Friends and Fellow Cattlemen: We have been truly blessed with abundant rainfall in the last few days. It is a wonderful feeling as the worries brought on by a dry fall and winter wash away. We would like to give special thanks to our ranch manager, Brandon McGuire, for having the sale offering and the herd in great condition. The progeny from our ORIgen sire, Lone Star Ten Fold L359, are throughout the sale and really standout. Here at Lone Star Angus, we are blessed by long-standing relationships and many customers who show their continued support by buying our bulls and females each year. We would like to take a moment and thank you again for your support. Without you, we would not be where we are today! We will be honored for you to attend our 2018 Production Sale. In order to serve our customers better we have made two changes this year. We have moved our sale to Saturday, March 24, 2018. Several of our bull buyers turn out bulls April 1 and we hope this will be helpful. Secondly, for customers with a later turn out date, we will take your bulls back to the ranch and care for them till needed. All bulls must be picked up at the ranch by May 15, 2018. If you have any questions about the sale or our program, please do not hesitate to call or stop by at any time. We love to talk cattle! Sincerely, Rodney & Margaret Howell MARGARET AND RODNEY AT THE BEARTOOTH PASS IN MONTANA. RANCH MANAGER BRANDON MCGUIRE AND HIS WIFE KATELYN.
