Ranch History

In 2003, a Simmental dispersal sale was held and Beitelspacher Ranch returned to raising purebred Angus and Simmental x Angus composites. Today, the ranch is operated by Sharon with her son Mark running the day to day operations. Grandsons Bryce and Brady have become integral help in all aspects of the ranch.

They maintain about 100 registered Angus cows and a commercial herd of 450 Simmental x Angus based cows. AI is primarily used on the purebred herd while embryo transfer has also become instrumental in the program. The Beitelspacher’s calve in March and April and hold an annual production sale the final Friday in February at Mobridge Livestock in Mobridge, SD.
