Judy and I would like to welcome you to our 49th annual production sale.

Who would have thought we would make it this many years? And it all goes back to our customers. Without you we would not be where we are today.

Being a seedstock producer has a lot of trials and tribulations, and you really have to love the work and we do. It's what we love to do and we wouldn't have it any other way.

My dad's favorite saying was, “It's more love than money, and the money's no factor.” I believe it to be a true statement. Every day we are trying to improve our genetics and purchase the best genetics available so we can pass them on to our customers.

Judy and I think that this year's offering is as good as there is in the country. There are some really top genetics in this year's offering from the Red Angus clear through the Hybrids and Simmentals. The bulls we have to offer have come from some of the top herds in the business and we are really excited to let you pick through them and help move your program forward.

We have four new herd sires that have progeny in the sale offering along with all our other herd sires. On the Red Angus side, we have Stockmarket, a new sire that looks to excel in marbling and ribeye along with a big spread between birth and yearling EPDs. Plus, he's as gentle as a dog.

Lotto, another Red Angus sire purchased from Leland Red Angus along with Stockmarket, is also a big-spread bull with loads of length and muscle. His calves carry the same traits.

Deep End is a sire used in the AI program and man, you want to talk about good calves with a lot of growth! They have it they are as good as they come. We even kept one for our own use.

On the Simmental side we purchased a sire from Springer Simmental named Copperhead. He is a real stud — heavy muscled, long sided and soft made, and he moves like a cat. His progeny are as good as he is — don't miss his calves.

It's a wonderful time to be in the cattle business with supply low. Prices should stay good for some time. The future is bright. So, on February 3, join us for our 49th sale and help yourself to some great genetics.

We look forward to seeing you. Feel free to come in advance and evaluate the bulls in their natural environment. Judy and I would love to visit about the cattle with you.

Judy and Rick

Our Vision for our Customers ...
is for them to achieve profit from their cow herd.

Dick Loonan and his daughter, Judy, began the Loonan Stock Farm venture 49 years ago with a vision to help their customers achieve the most profit from their cow herd. The loyalty of their customers is a testament that they have accomplished that goal and more.

Today, Judy and herdsman, Rick Thompson, continue to buy the best Red Angus and Simmental genetics available, expecting calving ease with rapid growth and good marbling and ribeye area.

Join Loonan Stock Farm on Saturday, February 3, to evaluate bulls that will add profitability through calving ease, performance and carcass merit.

Loonan Genetics — Impacting profitable bottom lines for generations!

We appreciate young cattlemen like James Johannes and his family. He came to us in 2007 — while still in high school — looking for a bull. It was July and we still had a Firefly Red Angus bull available, and he and his dad bought him.

Here we are, years later, and James has gone from buying our last bull available to coming opening day. He studies over all the figures and is buying a bull from the top of the bull crop. His wife, Allison, works at one of our local banks as a credit analyst, so the Johannes family knows what their bottom line is. They know what to look for to get the most for their money from pounds to sell at the sale barn to keeping top replacement heifers.

James has studied his genetics and has had years of outstanding calves with thickness, gainability and eye appeal. In fact, he recently sold 900-lb. heifers for $2,100.
