Cattlemen and women,
Due to the current public health situation, I invite you to come see the cattle prior to the sale at the farm 24181 187th St., Leavenworth, Kan. I am encouraging anyone and everyone to come at their convenience - any day and time that works well for you. I will be around to greet you, show you the cattle and answer any questions you may have.
My family understands your concerns about public gatherings, and we are trying to be as proactive and safe as possible. I have hired LiveAuctions.tv to broadcast the sale online and would strongly suggest getting signed up before Saturday. We have several phone numbers available to call if internet bidding is not your thing, also if you place an absentee bid with me or any of the staff we will gladly handle it.
To those who still want to come to the farm on Saturday, I ask that you understand we will be operating with a skeleton crew. I ask that proper social distancing practices be adhered to. I know we all enjoy dad's cooking, unfortunately we have made the decision to not serve a meal. So please grab a sandwich at home before you come or grab something to eat after the sale.
I will work with everyone on pickup, delivery and sight-unseen purchases.
Thanks for your understanding. I appreciate your interest in our program and the friendships I have gained. I hope to have you participate online with LiveAuctions.tv or on the phone.
Brandon New and Family
The "New Crew" welcomes you to New Haven Angus. We are a 4th generation family owned farm located in central Leavenworth County, Kansas, that has been producing Angus cattle for over 60 years. Brandon began management of the herd after graduation from KSU in 2003.
We have both spring and fall calving cows with 225 females in the herd. We selectively breed to provide our customers with a balance of genetic traits that will provide them with an animal that is proven, predictable and profitable and the consumer with a quality product.
It has been a privilege during the years to show our herd to many individuals and groups. We have been blessed with long-standing friendships and many customers who trust our breeding program.
We look forward to meeting you and showing you our cowherd. Visitors are always welcome at New Haven Angus.
Our bulls are the product of a distinctive cowherd. We utilize weights and all yearling animals are ultrasounded. We retain only the top performing bulls and select on balanced EPDs; calving ease, carcass quality and growth. They are fed a high roughage diet and are ready to go to the pasture when they leave New Haven Angus. We believe in our bulls and often use them in our breeding program.
We have a total commitment to the mother cows that make the New Haven herd distinctive. Only top performers are used as replacement heifers. Years of selective breeding for fertility, udder quality, structural soundness, disposition and consistency in raising calves with high weaning and yearling weights has added bred-in reliability. Only proven producers are selected for our embryo transplant program.
In preparation for our annual sale you will find Bill smoking briskets and making "Cuzz's Secret Barbecue Sauce". You're invited to come and enjoy the barbecue, look through the cattle and visit with friends and fellow cattlemen.
Cattle are available by private treaty throughout the year.
