The 24th Annual Hawks Angus Production Sale: March 16, 2015
View our Catalog on the Sale Page.
We would like to welcome everyone to the 2015 Hawks Angus annual Production Sale. Hawks Angus is a family owned and operated ranch located in North Central Montana. The ranch is nestled away on the east side of an area called the "Sweet Grass Hills".
Back in 1941 Adrian’s Grandfather, Clarence Hawks purchased some of the first Black Angus heifers in the area. Since that time the Hawks’ have raised commercial Angus cows until the mid-1980. At this time Adrian and Janet began to build a registered herd with the philosophy to breed cattle for quiet, workable dispositions, to be easy fleshing with natural thickness, and have tight udders, while being moderately framed.
Adrian and Janet have 3 children, Kimberly, Kari and Cory. All have been participants in our operation but after the girls attended college and got married they took different paths. Cory on the other hand, along with his wife Belinda, has joined the operation. They purchased the ranch next door and now Hawks Angus runs 300 head of registered cattle along with a small grain operation. They are also proud parents of the 3rd generation Hawks Angus with the birth of their son Jaxon Adrian.
Our cow herd runs on native grass and our calves are not given creep feed. After weaning we develop the calves at the ranch using a high roughage diet. We hold our annual bull sale the third Monday in March at the family place north of Galata. This year the sale will be on March 16, 2015. We will sell approximately 75 bulls and 25 heifers. We still focus on balanced traits, fertility, longevity, good udders and good dispositions. We have always tried to raise cattle that will work for the commercial cattleman.
We look forward to seeing you at the sale. We are looking forward to greeting old friends and meeting many new ones. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions about our operation.
