Welcome to the 2024 Edge of the West Production Sale! 

After a busy holiday season we hope the new year finds your family and ranches doing well. We've had some roller coaster years lately so the overall mild winter so far has been a welcome treat. Many of us unfortunately did happen to get hit by the last cold snap. Where we experienced a stretch of frigid temps and crazy winds. Our neck of the world saw -65 degree windchills that tested our will and our cattle, both faired well. The cattle need to handle these extremes, because it's not if, but when and how long, these cold snaps settle in here in NW North Dakota. The Finke family has been on this farm since 1900 and we know what it takes to withstand the rugged winters. We look forward to bringing you cattle that are bred for longevity, extreme conditions, and customer profit even in the harshest environments.

The sale partners feel demand for moderate, efficient, high performance cattle will continue to rise.  The SimGenetic bulls in this offering will sire the right kind of feeder cattle and replacement females that will be necessary to produce a profit for their owners.  SRF Simmentals is proud to be working with Kaelberers and Kinns striving to achieve profit for our customers.    


As a collective sale group we have always emphasized the cow first. SRF Simmentals is proud to have been raising seedstock since 1974. Specifically we demand a female that is moderate in her frame, big bodied and sound structured.  She needs to possess a high quality udder, calve by herself and mother her calf.  We don’t have time to help them calve and nurse and we assume most ranches don’t either.  These efficient, hard working cows are what get us through these years of extremes and allow us to utilize resources to the fullest. If you retain your own replacement females rest assured the bulls in this offering will sire the ‘keepin’ kind of cows we all desire and require when mother nature gives us less than perfect conditions.


We sincerely appreciate your friendship and interest in the sale. We feel the cattle represented in this sale are the right kind to advance any program in the right direction. We look forward to visiting with you and anticipate your appraisal of this years' bulls and bred heifers! Give a call or stop in anytime!!
