Connealy Angus is located in the beautiful Nebraska Sandhills. The base cow herd has always been heavily culled for productivity traits, and is managed under rugged conditions that mimic the commercial operations in this area.
Through the years, we have used a larger variety of industry leading sires in our extensive AI program. This has allowed us a wide base of genetics from which to draw as we select our animals for sale and for replacements.
Connealy Angus offers two bull sales per year. The next spring sale will be held on Saturday, March 25th, 2017. There will be 500 bulls selling - 450 yearlings, and 50 coming two year olds. We will also sell one cow as a "Pick of the Dams" offering. The fall sale will be held on the Monday before Thanksgiving, November 20th, 2017.
We thank all of our customers for their past patronage, and we appreciate the interest of those who are looking into our bulls for the first time.
The sale will be broadcast live on Dish TV High Definition channel 998, and on the Internet at www.cattleusa.com. Visit www.northernlivestockvideo.com for more information.
To bid remotely for the sale:
This lot will be the “Pick of the Dams” of the bulls who sell on the day of the sale. The cow will sell “as is” - open or pregnant. If there is a calf at side, it will remain the property of Connealy Angus. The buyer can declare the cow after the bid is won, or will have up to two weeks after the sale to make the decision.
When the sale order is posted on our website, approximately one week before the sale, it will be noted which bulls have dams that are still in our herd and available for purchase, as well as the position of the “Pick of the Dams” lot.
When the Fall Bull Sale Catalog is produced, we will have chosen four of our Spring bull calves that we feel have performed well up to weaning.
We will offer the choice of one of these calves in the Fall Sale. The calves' information will be listed in the catalog, the four calves will be available to view at the sale site, and when the auction is held, the “2016 Spring Bull Calf” lot will be sold. The winning bidder may choose one of these calves.
