Our Journey as Producers of Fleckvieh Simmental Cattle.

APLX Ensign 2X was sold to Langer Fleckvieh, Pam & Lyle Langer of Edson, Alberta in the 2011 Red Deer Simmental Bull Sale as the high selling Fullblood bull for $8,000.  Ensign represented our first sale by public auction, so we were estatic with the result.  The combination of a later sale date with a very successful flush program, meant Ensign was only utilized on a limited number of cows his first year out.  We had the opportunity to visit with the Langer’s at their ranch near Edson in March of this year, and learned that Ensign’s calves came easily, with all but one being bull calves.  We look forward to continuing to watch his genetics develop over time.  More pictures of his offspring will hopefully follow.
