About Hould Angus
Our ranch is located about 10 miles South and East of Havre, MT along Little Box Elder Creek. Our weather is much milder than that of Havre and the milk river valley. This allows us to graze out longer and to push our cattle harder.
My wife Ruby and I are very fortunate to have 5 great kids: Jessica, Tyler, Tucker, Hunter and Cole. All of our children have been involved in making our operation successful.
Man time is sure going faster and faster these days. Looking back I realize that I have been raising registered Angus cows now for 29 years. That just doesn’t seem feasible. A lot has changed in my breeding philosophy in the last 29 years for sure.
A lot has changed here in the last 12 months as well and most of it for the better. First the bad news, our youngest son Cole has left the house and has headed to Texas to pursue his bull riding dreams. Not going to lie, it’s pretty quiet now in this big empty house. Thankfully Ruby has our granddaughter, Hadley, to keep her busy. On a good note, I was able to retire from HCE/TTC after 20 years and truly believe that if everyone fights for their dreams and has an awesome wife/family in their corner, you can accomplish anything. It is a great feeling to be doing what I enjoy everyday.
A few years ago we were given the opportunity to take over Ruby’s family place. Her parents Fred and Violet Davey have retired and are chasing grand kids. We appreciate the incredible opportunity that this has allowed us. As far as the cattle, nothing has really changed and our philosophy is still the same. Breed For The Cow! There is zero emphasis on any EPD and never will be. Just good solid cattle that are fertile, functional, good uddered and productive enough to hang around into their teen years. All this and doing it in an environment/management that is harsh and extremely unforgiving. If you would like to receive sale info please let us know.
Thank you for visiting us.
