Welcome to Hilltop Angus Ranch
Ranch News/November 2014
Thank you to Sydenstricker Genetics of Missouri for the purchase of our 2014 Nile heifer. We are very excited and proud to have her sell to such a respected and prominent herd of nationally recognized angus cattle.
We look forward to the future of this exciting heifer. Hilltop Perfection 49 is a daughter of Connealy Black Granite and an outstanding first calf heifer by Sitz Rainmaker 11127. Her outstanding individual Performance was backed up by terrific 50k data generating her on of the best epd profiles in our herd.
Again our thanks goes out to Sydenstricker Genetics.
New Year Greetings!
With December coming to a close and the New Year beginning we reflect on our many blessings.
December brought the end of another successful hunting season at the ranch. We had several hunters come and visit this year with success. Our nephew Colton bagged a beautiful 5x5 mule deer buck. Colton is from Great Falls. Tristan Poser also had a very successful hunt and shot a 5x5 mule deer the same day as Colton did. These bucks looked like twins in genetics.
As many of you know, Cory’s favorite past time is hunting. In September Cory traveled to Alaska on a caribou hunt that was successful. Bringing home a double shovel caribou. Cory also had drawn a bull elk tag for this area. On opening day Cory, Lon Nemec and Gary set out to hunt. After many miles of walking up and down enormously steep canyons… Cory managed to get a beautiful 6x6 bull elk.
So with hunting season wrapping up we were also blessed with an announcement from Ryan and Torie Poser. They are expecting their 3rd child. He will join brothers Bodie and Carter. He is also grandchild #10 of Carmen and Gary’s.
Christmas also brought on the announcement that Josh Poser, Gary and Carmen’s 3rd oldest son is engaged to be married. Robin and Josh are exchanging vows sometime in 2015. Congratulations to both.
While it seems like all play here at the ranch we have also been out to sales and making upgrades to our place. We built some new fences to our calving pastures with the help of Crabtree fencing. Thanks to Tim and Colin for all your help.
We also were fortunate enough to purchase a seriously “zesty” bull from the Diamond Dot sale. He is a hilltop rainmaker 1333 son and the lovely Stevenson girls have nick named him “Zesty”. We look forward to good things to come from him. Stayed tuned to the website for information on him.
We are also starting to work on the 2015 sale… with highlights including: Connealy Black Granite, Hilltop Open Range, Hilltop True Grit and Bobcat Trax sons selling. Watch the website under the Production Sale tab for the current catalog. If you would like to be added to the mailing list please let us know. Call or email Cory.
As December comes to a close and a New Year begins- All of us here at Hilltop Angus wish you and yours a Happy New Year. We thank you for your friendship and trust in our program.
