Every group will sell to the highest bidder times the amount of head; the auctioneer will handle any disputes if needed. Announcements from the auction block take precedence over printed or previously announced details. All monies are in Canadian funds. Insurance Crossfield Agencies Insurance – Cassie Dorran 403-507-5953 Be sure insurance is placed within one week of the sale. Cattle are the responsibility of the buyer at the fall of the hammer. The bull will sell with a Breeding Soundness Evaluation. Pregnancy Verified Dr. Adam Schierman, DVM, at Davis-Rairdan International performed ultrasound pregnancy examinations on all heifers. A 283-day gestation table was used based off of the AI or natural service observation in combination with the dated ultrasound verification. USA Buyers We welcome U.S. customers. Transportation as well as health and export paper fees would be the responsibility of the buyer. Dorran Cattle Co. will help with arrangements. Contact Ryan before the sale for more information.

Dorran Cattle Co. may be able to provide some guidance and help line up transportation arrangements if needed.

Thank you for your interest in our first sale! Dorran Cattle Co. heifers have been selected from astute cattle breeders across Alberta and Saskatchewan. Sires of these females have been sold through Dorran Marketing Inc. auctioned sales, what we believe are breeders of integrity and detail oriented in terms of record keeping, culling and purchasing quality new genetics for continued herd improvement. Heifers are identified by their Dorran Cattle Co. number and penned in groups of two to four head by type and calving dates. Heifers were fed a high quality, free-choice hay in the spring and AI synchronized to the calving ease, maternal giant PF Oklahoma 6625. Now deceased, Oklahoma is recognized in the Angus breed for his stacked EPD profile including in the top 2% for Calving Ease and top 7% for Birth Weight and Weaning Weight, a combination rare to find. Oklahoma calves are visually unique with strong structural correctness, smooth front ends and extremely balanced in their look. We know you will be happy with calves out of these commercial bred heifers with steer calves having the look that will catch your eye and heifers that are sure to be the replacement kind with two of the very best donors in the industry within their lineage. Close to 70% of heifers stuck to their AI date. For the remaining, heifers were pasture exposed to two Oklahoma sons from Anchorage Farms, Hanley, SK/Olds, AB – Anchorage Boone Pickens 0008 and Anchorage Lawton 9063. Estimated calving dates have been provided, but please keep in mind that Oklahoma is considered a shorter gestation sire. We recommend watching these heifers prior to the estimated 283-day gestation length. This group of bred heifers are quiet. We hand watered them in the spring and check on them daily with our boys. Our boys have been chute side every time we’ve worked them (and if you know our boys, they are a busy pair). We trust these heifers are going to make exceptional cows for their new owners. We’ve done the homework; we look forward to the fun you are going to have with them!

Ryan & Cassie Dorran Heifers have been on native pasture since the first of June and had free choice Bulls Eye Mineral.

His EPD’s are out of this world as he is in the top 2% for CE-TM-MRB, top 3% for REA, top 4% for YW, top 7% for BW-WW-Milk-SC, top 10% for MCE-CW and top 15% for Fat. EPDs

Each year we are going to offer our two year old bull in our bred female sale! Affectionately known by our family as “Pistol Pete”, we are very happy with how this Oklahoma son has matured. Purchased in 2019 at the Anchor B/Anchorage Bull Sale for his calving ease and birth weight numbers, Pete has been an awesome breeding bull for us the past two years. He’s flawless in his feet, smooth fronted and structurally sound. His dam, Belvin Lady Blossom 70’17, was the high seller in the 2017 Belvin Angus Female Sale and has a lineage of great cows known for foot and udder strength with high production value. His top side includes the now deceased AI sire Oklahoma, a maternal and calving ease giant in the Angus breed. Pete has calves on the ground in Saskatchewan that look great, and we know he will make an excellent breeding piece at his new home!
