Shenandoah's Shining Stars Sale
November 22, 2014 at 1:00 PM
At the Ranch - Quicksburg, VA



Welcome Folks!

Welcome to our site!  We hope you enjoy browsing through the pages and taking an arm-chair tour of this Century farm.  And please check out the cattle in our upcoming on-farm production sale!
It’s hard to believe it’s sale time again.  And we’d like to extend a sincere “thank you” to those who believe in our program and have purchased cattle that travelled to states near and far.  It’s extremely exciting to see the fruits of our labor becoming top producers in well-respected herds across the country. 

We’d like to cordially invite you to attend our Shenandoah’s Shining Stars sale, Saturday, November 22, 2014 beginning at 1:00 pm.  This is our sixth production sale and undoubtedly the best set of elite Simmental genetics we’ve offered yet.  And, it’s a great time to be in the cattle business!

We strive to raise versatile, highly functional cattle that thrive in real-world environments.  They’re designed to travel rough terrain, efficiently convert grass to meat, and withstand wide temperature extremes which are routinely experienced in the mountains of Virginia.

It’s taken 38 years of rigid selection to produce the cattle in this offering but it was worth the wait.  These cattle have rock solid genetics, breed-leading performance, and outstanding phenotype with consistency and style.  They are the result of stacking multi-generations of breed greats, including our own bloodlines.  Whether you’re a purebred breeder, commercial cow-calf producer, or want to win the show ring, there’s something here for you.

We are extremely proud to present his offering and we’re committed to sharing our top genetics.  We take great pride in our cattle, in being good stewards of the land, and in preserving this historic farm and the old ways of life.  And as such, our video auction is held in an 1860’s barn. 

If you've never been to Virginia, come and enjoy its natural beauty and history.  With plenty of sights to see, Civil War museums, scenic vistas, antique shops and caverns to name a few, bring the whole family and enjoy a weekend getaway.
We hope to see you at the sale!
