I guarantee that all breeding cattle sold are fertile to the best of my knowledge, both bulls and females. If a bull is injured at anytime following the sale and during the first breeding season, he will be replaced or you can be issued credit equal to the purchase price minus the salvage value received for that bull.
If a female would be determined to be a non-breeder, then we ask that you would sell her and accept the difference as credit. Credit does not expire.
I will replace a dead animal if it is killed or dies for any reason during the first breeding season. I would ask that you contact me before you cull your animal.
If you are not happy, I am not happy!– Mark Baxter
Baxter Angus Farm is located in Northeastern South Dakota. It consists of 3500 acres of which 1500 acres are corn, soybeans, and wheat. The natural pasture and tame hay support a total cow herd of 325.
The first registered Angus cows were bought in 1992 and have become more and more of the total herd as we only save registered replacements. Bulls and heifers were sold private treaty until 2006 when we started the open house sale.
In 2007, we started a Black Hereford program. We purchased ten Hereford females to start this program and have steadily increased the Black Hereford numbers by culling and dispersing the non-registered Angus cows. Our first Black Hereford bull was Bar Z Balder 275. Then we purchased JN Balder 9630 whom we purchased from the JN Ranch in Kansas. We have acquired more Black Hereford bulls since that time.
In 2009, we started our first public auction sale. Rotational grazing has helped to maintain the cows in dry years and build the herd when it rains. We are able to winter graze much longer by stockpiling hay and grass.
