Comments:

Dec. 5, 2019, was the 54th Annual SITZ Angus Fall Production Sale, held at the ranch near Harrison, Mont., and marked 96 years for the Sitz family in the Angus industry. Over the many years of raising some of the Angus breeds most influential cattle the family has kept several things in mind weight, fertility, and resilient cattle are what pay. It was evident on sale day that these beliefs have a created a strong loyal following for the program as it was standing room only with both new and repeat buyers filling every seat in the sale barn. Congratulations to the Sitz family and crew on a great sale! ❖
