“We believe we are marketing our
program and philosophy as much as our cattle and their genetics.
We think it
is important for our customers to view it all.”
Leland Red Angus is a family
operation that is owned and managed by Melvin
and Luella Leland and son,
Todd. Melvin’s father homestead the ranch in 1911 on the edge of the
Badlands in western North Dakota and Todd is the third generation,
representing nearly 100 years of continuous family ownership.
We host our
annual production sale at the ranch the second Friday
each March, offering 160 bulls and 60 heifers. We sell bred females
each fall through private treaty.
We manage our purebred, registered
of 500-plus mother cows on the western range like a commercial operation.
We expect the cows to calve unassisted in the pasture, utilize the semi-arid
forages year-round, travel across rough terrain on sound feet and legs and
bring home a heavy-weaning calf in the fall. We don’t believe in creep
feeding – that’s the cow’s job – and we don’t feed the cows except in the
winter months prior to calving.
We utilize the breed’s top
as well as the technology of AI, embryo transfer, DNA and fertility
and carcass ultrasound to bring our customers the best genetics possible. We
utilize weights and EPDs, but we also select our cattle beyond the numbers
for disposition, fertility, udder structure, soundness, survivability and
customer satisfaction. Our show ring is our pasture and bull pen due to
limited labor resources.
At the end of the day, our customers can feel confident their Leland
Red Angus genetics are leading them in the right direction.
