Around the barn we referred to this calf as “Kenny”. This double bred clubby is one of best steers ever raised by Grace Cattle. This yellow calf has good hair, cool markings, including a white star on his forehead, and is extremely sound. He reads with so much power and muscle and will be a great jackpot or county fair show steer. His mother, Kate, was the 2019 Reserve Champion Benton County Fair Show Heifer, bred and raised by Colson Cattle. When you study this stud and see how easy he moves, you’ll see why we selected this calf to lead off the steers in the sale.
Here’s a calf that has been a standout of Grace Cattle’s since hitting the ground. This steer is tremendously athletic and one that balances up as well as any of the cattle being offered. The steer profiles exceptionally well and when you really study him, you will see that he packs a ton of power in his skeleton.
This mid-February born steer is the one we call “Klank”. He’s the half-brother to “Beans or JB”, the steer purchased by the Wilson Family in the 2021 LOTF Sale that went on to win Grand Champion Market Steer at the 2022 Gilliam County Fair. When it comes to power, he possesses plenty of it. He’s good fronted, square in his design, massively hipped, and balances well. From a pedigree standpoint, he’s one of elite steer calves in the offering. His granddam was Reserve Division in Denver while his dam was Reserve Female at the 2019 Oregon State Fair.
If you are looking for a steer who is the most efficient converter, look no further. The clubby bull Choppin Wood has done incredible things for our program and for numerous others. Therefore, we elected to match him to our best producing angus cow for this one. When you study this steer, it’s easy to see that he’s the largest structured and a massive calf being offered. He is sheer power and performance. He will be an easy feeding steer, perfect for jackpots and early county fairs.
Raised in partnership with Maddie Jo, this steer is one of two Jesse James calves being offered in the sale. This is one of our favorite steers in the sale. You must appreciate this one’s bones, extension, design, and power. He’s also one of the deeper bodied steers in the sale, adding to his overall appeal. This steer has a bright future ahead!
It’s hard to fathom this is a PB Angus Steer. But when they are this good, how do you not place them into a show ring? PVF Marvel is a newer bull, but one that has done some tremendous things for the breed. His calves are nearly flawless in design. They blend exceptional rib shape, extra body, added dimension and hip shape, in a skeleton that’s super sound. Did you notice the foot size and bone under these calves? They stand on a set of fully functional pipes commonly found under a double bred clubby! Here’s one for you if you’re chasing a breed steer show banner.
Around the Grace Cattle Barn this calf is called “Hollywood”. His name has nothing to do with his pedigree, but he is Lacey’s pick of the sale. His dam was purchased by Grace Cattle during the 2020 LOTF Sale and she went on to win Reserve Champion Female at the 2020 Cascade Spectacular. This silverish haired calf is amazingly giraffe fronted. When he is in the pen and on the move, his arrogance with how he carries himself is easily discovered. Don’t let that be of concern as this steer is super gentle. He is a steer that packs a tremendous amount of muscle into his body. If you want one that’s big ribbed and sappy bellied, he’s the one you’re after.
“Cowboy” is one of my son’s favorite steers and I’ll give him all the credit on breaking this steer. Some of you may have seen our FB post with the two calves laying down while my son sat by them, and that was Cowboy. He’s super soggy and deep, and rocks his front end up extra cool. Lots of hair on this guy and he’s big structured. His markings are a fan favorite when people see him at the ranch. This May born steer will be perfect for those late season county fairs.
2219 is a tank! This steer has a ton of muscle and lots of hair. Another very attractive fronted steer with a big hip. Structurally very sound and easy moving. This is a calf who will be very competitive at the county fair level.
