Hello again! The Solid Rock Red Angus crew was so blessed to meet you all last year during our first year consigning with Cross Diamond Cattle Company after acquiring the 7U herd, and are looking forward to working for you again this year.
Looking back, the three words for this year’s summary are: Foundation, Endurance and Family. Red Angus genetics are the “Foundation” for the success we strive for in functional cows, high-yielding finished cattle, and the bulls that bring those two elements together. Watch for “SR Foundation” in our bull lineup.
Endurance. With two years of drought in the Eastern Colorado plains, fires, and capped off by two floods (waiting for the frogs and flies-Yikes!), we are proud that our cattle have endured this adversity.
Family. The Lord has given us a tremendous gift in our children and now they are giving back with an 8-month-old granddaughter, Maelle Rose, born to Ryan and Lindsay on December 31, 2012 and grandson, Chisum Marshall, born to Ronny and Kelsey on September 9, 2013.
You will see bulls in this year’s lineup from our children, Emily and Ronny & Kelsey. We have worked together as a family to put time and effort in choosing genetics that not only fit the needs of our environment in Colorado but will compliment an outcross in bringing key genetics to your herds. We are confident these goals will result in superior genetics and disposition when you purchase a Solid Rock Red Angus Bull.
We want to thank the “Solid Rock” in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, for the blessings he has given us this last year.
We look forward to seeing you at the sale in December and are always available for questions or conversations beforehand. Give us a call or stop by and visit if you’re in the Eastern Colorado area!
Joe, Cindy and Emily Frasier
