There are 100 Willow Oak Angus Hybrid Bulls on test and the best EPD evaluated, performance tested, temperament and functionally rated bulls will be sold at our Cattleman's Holiday Sale featuring the Best Bulls in America 
on the ranch on December 2, 2017.



It is the genetic prepotency of our bulls and their sons and grandsons which allows us, as part of THE BEST BLACK BULLS IN AMERICA SALE, to issue the...

CATTLEMAN'S CHALLENGE
For the last twenty years, we have sold at public auction a set of black bulls that many in the industry, including commercial cattlemen and prominent university professors have described as the best set of black bulls they have ever seen. We believe in our program and have worked for the past 33 years to produce the best bulls available anywhere. Our goal was to be recognized as better than any Angus bulls anywhere. Everything we see and our customer feedback tells us we have succeeded - but we also know no matter how good your breeding program is, it can always be improved - both deeper and broader. To help us go beyond our normal customer feedback, we continue this challenge...If you attend our sale as a registered bidder and purchase a Willow Oak black bull and within the next year, prior to our December 2017 sale you are the first bull customer to find a set of Angus bulls for sale that are equal to or better than our set of bulls in this sale, we will give you a Willow Oak Black Bull for Free.

Go ahead - be the first to find us a better set of Angus bulls and you get your WILLOW OAK BLACK BULL FOR FREE. (This offer is good for the first buyer to provide the performing data. If you are first, you can keep the Willow Oak bull you purchased at our sale and we will give you your money back or the amount of the sale average for bulls in our December 2015 sale whichever is less.)


The annual adjusted for 365 days of age averages for these bulls must exceed each of the following data figures:
