Welcome to Brad Z Ranch

Welcome to Brad Z Ranch, a cow-calf operation outside of Guthrie Center, Iowa. Each year, we offer top-quality bulls at our annual sale. Despite the tornado that hit the ranch in December, we will be able to move ahead as usual with our bull sale. We are looking forward to seeing you at the 2022 private treaty sale on Saturday, March 12.

Come early to look over the bulls and bred heifers, for which we hope to post data soon. Join us for lunch and participate in the bid-off at 1 p.m.

EPD information is now available for all 55 Angus and commercial bulls.

Info for heifers will soon be available through above link and on our “Upcoming Sale” page.

The popular shape and style of cattle have changed multiple times throughout those six decades. Chasing fads, however, does not build consistency in a cow herd. That’s why we do not worry about the latest fad. Our long-time customers keep coming back because they know that our cowherd will produce bulls that have the ability to sire calves that will wean heavy and bring a premium on the rail.

We hope to see you March 12, 2022.
