Werning Cattle Company

The 40th Anniversary Sale for Werning Cattle Company was certainly one for this firm’s record book. Forty years in any endeavor is quite an honor packed with extreme dedication and this sale was certainly a privilege for the entire Werning family to have so many repeat and new customers be part of this celebration event. The W/C prefix is a mark of distinction and is found in pedigrees across North America and without a doubt, this sale offering will be stamping new history books in the beef industry.

The offering included many herd bull prospects plus performance-oriented bulls for many progressive commercial producers. The sale offered buyers the chance to select from many full brothers, as 95 of the bulls were the result of the W/C embryo transfer program. The majority of the bulls, 80%, sold from $4,000 to $8,000. The cattle sold into 29 states.

Thank you to all our friends for the past 40 years of having the opportunity to be your seedstock provider and more importantly, 40 years of friendship. We look forward to many more years together!
