About Us

A Few Words About OIAN Angus

 

OIAN Angus began in the Fall of 2005 with the purchase of 40 bred heifers. We have grown our operation to calve over 200 females a year.  We have been selling bulls and females annually since 2006 both on production sales and private treaty.

 

Our family lives near Highland, MN and winter cattle at two farms.  The Dakota Farm which is located a mile from Highland, MN and the other farm is 3 miles from Rushford, MN. We pasture cows throughout Fillmore and Houston Counties.

 

Exciting news, we have started two cooperator herds and have implemented an embryo transfer program that we would like our customers to be apart of. Please ask about our embryo transfer calf buy back program.  

Our Approach

 

It is our goal to produce seedstock that will produce progeny with low birth weight and tremendous growth potential. Our customers success is very important to us, we know that the most important part of selling seedstock is the guarantee to our customers that you have purchased very high quality cattle that you can depend on moving your cattle operation forward.

 

We all know it starts with the cows, the maternal side of our operation has a been the focus since we began. We originally purchased 40 bred heifers in 2005. Since then we have grown our herd to over 200 cows.  We have also purchased elite heifers and cows from very prestigious herds such as Peterson Angus, Mogck and Sons, Johnson Family Cattle Co and Marda Angus.

 

A little more on the maternal side, we have focused on retaining females that calve in the first 42 days of the calving season through this practice we have found a direct correlation between granddam, dam and daughter calving intervals. We see it year after year when the dam calves at a 365 day interval the daughter will as well, often times we have granddams, dams and daughters all calving with days of each other. This is exceptionally important to our customers who want uniform calf crops and great fertility in the dams.

 

We also focus on udder quality and feet and legs because along with fertility they become some of the most important factors in longevity of our females.  Also, with having 4 young children that are often along for calving checks and pasture walks, docility is of utmost importance.
