The Reardon Family
We have a long history of Red Angus in our family. Dan’s mother grew up in Eastern Colorado and raised Red Angus cattle since she was a little girl. Dan’s father had a sizable cattle operation in Southern Colorado during his school days. When our family moved to Western Colorado, we decided to get back into the cattle industry.
The first cows we purchased after moving to Western Colorado were a handful of commercial Red Angus cows. Then, we had the opportunity to purchase a small Registered Black Angus Herd. We sold bulls for a number of years but decided that Black Angus is not where we wanted to be. Dan has always had an affinity for Red Angus cows so the decision was made to go 100% Red Angus. We sold the Registered Black Angus Herd and purchased the best Registered Red Angus genetics we could find. Through many sales and private treaty transactions, we established our herd and have continued to add to the herd every year by keeping replacements and adding a few outside cattle each fall.
Review our genetics and you will see influences from the best names in the Red Angus Breed. We have major influences from Ludvigson Stock Farms, Green Mountain Red Angus, Feddes Red Angus, C-T Red Angus, Beckton Red Angus, Croissant Red Angus, K2 Red Angus, Axtell Cattle Company, and many other well-known Red Angus breeders. We are proud of the fact that we established our herd with the best genetics available.
Over the years, we have sold Red Angus bulls by auction and private treaty. Our bulls are sold every spring. We are proud to offer bulls for cattlemen who run their herds at elevation. We remain leaders in the research and development of cattle that thrive at high-altitude and are resistant to bovine pulmonary artery disease. Our client base has grown due to the high demand of high quality registered Red Angus bulls that will pass on to their progeny genetic resistance to pulmonary artery diseases also known as “altitude sickness” or “brisket disease.”
As always, feel free to contact Dan at any time to discuss our Red Angus cows. He loves to discuss the genetics and EPD’s of the herd.
