Annual Production Sale
The Bruner Angus Ranch is a fourth-generation family farm. The Bruner family includes Blaine, Kim and their boys; Travis (and wife Ashley), Trenton and Ty. The Angus herd was started by the late Frankie Bruner, and his wife Cecilia. Frankie bought his first 25 Angus cattle in 1952 to start the Bruner Angus Ranch. Each year he added as few as one or 2 to build his herd. The highlight of Frankie's ranching career was the purchase of FAR Kruegerand 410H that went on to be the 2002 Denver Stock Show Grand Champion Bull. Since then the Bruner Angus Ranch has developed into a 200 registered cow/calf operation. All of the cows are synchronized and AI'd using the top genetics in the Angus breed. All calves are born at the ranch and fed using their own grown feed and most of their own supplements. Additional supplements are purchased from Feed Mix.
Every member of the family has a part in the operation. From the boys doing the chores, working cows and clipping bulls, to the girls keeping track of the bookwork, sale information and marketing. Bruner’s annually attend and display cattle at the Drake Breeder's Classic, Bismarck Farmer's Livestock Bull Show, and also at the Towner Bull Show.
