Welcome to Lost Creek Cattle Company. We raise grass, black angus cows, and blue eyed little girls. We are very excited about ranching and hope you will enjoy our operation as much as we do. Our door is always open to visitors and the coffee is always on.
We are beyond humbled to be on the list with these other great producers and friends! Thanks for the nomination Hettinger!!
Our family is so excited to be supplying The Peacock Mercantile in Hettinger ND with our Grass Fed Beef. Be sure to stop by and check out their lunch specials and let them know how much you appreciate all the small business’ they support!
Its that time of year again when our bulls head to the sale ring. We are really happy with how these bulls have performed and grown. We have grass finished a few contemporaries to these bulls with tremendous results. The steaks are very tender with great marbling and flavor. If you are interested in genetics that will push your grass finishing operation to the next level than be sure to check out the bulls we have offered in the Colorado sale on November 5.
Below is an excerpt from Pharo’s BULLetin about our lot 74.
Top-Sort Bulls Galore –
By Kit Pharo
As we have said before, there are top-sort bulls scattered all the way through our sale catalog. I want to caution you against sorting so hard you miss out on some outstanding bulls. I have been guilty of that myself. With our Quick Sort program, it’s easy to do. I would like to share one of several examples I have come across while working with customers.
LOT 74 Little Mo
This picture of Little Mo (Lot 74) was taken out in the pasture yesterday. Notice the short, dormant grass. As you can see, Little Mo does NOT lack for thickness, volume, masculinity, muscling or fleshing ability. He’s a stud! However, he has pretty average 4-star ratings for fleshing ability, thickness, muscling and masculinity. Little Mo has a great marbling ratio of 144%, along with a great tenderness score of 25. He has a 5-star disposition and 4+ calving ease.
Little Mo is not one of our leadoff bulls and he is not among the highest-rated bulls in this sale. Nevertheless, he has absolutely nothing to be ashamed of. He looks better today than he did when he was weighed and evaluated two months ago – and he looks better today than he did when he was videoed one month ago. Because of Little Mo’s phenotype, ultrasound data and DNA information, he is one of several bulls Tim Goodnight is keeping close tabs on. Tim says this bull has exactly what we want in our Grass-Fed Beef Alliance program.
Sean and I are excited to offer a BBQ Bundle from our grass fed beef!! You’ll get 10lbs of burger, 2 ribeye steaks, and 2 tenderloins for $90. Give Sean or myself a call with any questions 567.6635 or you can message me here!
A brand new venture is coming from the ranch just in time for barbecue season. We are excited to be able to provide you and your family with some of our locally raised, pasture finished, antibiotic and hormone free beef. They will be for sale in quarters, halves and wholes . Our grass fed animals will be delivered to Dakota Pack in Hettinger ND in the end of June. We will sell them by the quarter, half or whole. If you purchase a whole animal you would have more custom processing options and would receive our best price. Invite your family or friends to go together on a whole animal and receive the best price we can offer. As always we welcome you out to the ranch and appreciate you taking an interest in our operation.
Please feel free to call Sean at home 701.567.6635 to reserve your meat.
We were able to find homes for all of our cattle. Thanks to everyone. We should finish shipping the last of them out this weekend. It will be a bitter sweet day to see these girls go down the road. It has taken us 6 years to get our cow herd where we thought they should be. We will continue to build on the genetics that we have left and strive to make those moderate framed, easy fleshing, easy calving cows that we have gotten really used to having around. We look forward to what 2018 has in store for our family and our ranch. Thanks again to everyone who took time to look into our operation and our cattle.
We have a group of registered black angus females for sale. These are great cows that have been very productive for us. They range in age from 3 to 13. Take a look at our females for sale page to see some pictures and reg numbers
The 2017 bull sale is over and we want to thank everyone that purchased bulls from us. We truly appreciate you putting the trust in our program to purchase our bulls, it is an honor and privilege for us to be part of your program. Thanks Again
