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. We are looking forward to seeing you at our 2021 private treaty sale: Saturday, March 13. Come early to look over the bulls and bred heifers, join us for lunch, and participate in the bid-off at 1 p.m.


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 in March when we offer 50 Angus and Simmental Angus bulls for sale.
