Seller Story

Anne Anderson Bennett and brother Gordon Anderson have run Flying A Cattle Co. and the prior Dumbell Ranch since their grandfather took ownership in 1913. A rich history of raising quality commercial cattle with an emphasis on balanced traits from maternal functionality, soundness and mothering ability to overall growth and performance through weaning. Since the 1980's they have continued to focus on great genetics to improve their bottom line at weaning time investing in a bull battery from the likes of Diamond Peak in CO to Jorgensen Land & Cattle in SD. They have had several repeat buyers on both their steers and heifers over the past decade which goes to prove the investment they have made in the overall cowherd. These are the last set of calves coming off the Dumbell ranch dispersion. A great opportunity to buy a solid set of reputation feeder calves and replacement quality heifers. Thanks for looking! - Anne Anderson Bennett and Gordon Anderson
