Welcome, and thank you for visiting us online! At Jauer Dependable Genetics, we have worked hard to provide a genetic package that you can take back and affect positive change in your herd. Our bred cows and heifers are high capacity, moderately framed, fertile females that will thrive in grass and forage environments. They will breed back and produce calves that go out and work in the real world. Jauer bulls are easy fleshing with tremendous libidos. They will get your cows bred without the need for supplemental feed or grain to maintain their body weight, and their calves will be deep, thick replacements that will stay in your herd. At Jauer Dependable Genetics, fleshing ability is bred in - not fed on! And in these days, feed efficiency in your cows is paramount. We invite you to browse the pictures below and check out the entire sale offering. Thank you, we hope to see you at the sale.

Welcome to Jauer Dependable Genetics 41st Annual Angus Bred Female and Bull Sale. We’re excited to see that you have chosen to check out our program, and we’re confident that you will like what you see. As always, we would like to extend our gratitude to all our past customers’ support - especially the repeat buyers. We really do appreciate your business.
It certainly has been a wild ride in the cattle business lately. I think the best word to describe the current era is - uncertainty. It feels like it has been hard to plan and budget too far in advance because as soon as you do, the markets change direction, or there is a big weather event, or something unexpected always seems to happen. Thankfully, at Jauer Dependable Genetics we’ve been able to maintain a steady track. We’ve found that by consistently producing high value animals and keeping our expenses down, we’re more likely to maintain profitability through the uncertain times.
One of the issues we dealt with here this year is extreme drought. We went most of the summer without a drop of rain. This put quite a strain on our pastures. We plan ahead for some diminished grass production by utilizing rotational grazing and keeping our stocking rates as low as possible. However, when conditions were as dry as they were last summer, we were forced to take action to insure that pastures didn’t get overgrazed and that cattle were all well fed. We moved a lot of cattle around to take advantage of pastures with good grass and give the less productive areas a rest. You’ll notice that some of the cows were pasture exposed to multiple bulls which is the result of moving them around so much. We are very thankful that our cowherd is made up of moderately framed, forage efficient cows. The ability to run a greater number of animals on a smaller number of acres was the saving grace that allowed us to endure this latest environmental difficulty.
Over the years, we have sold cattle all over the country and they are able to thrive anywhere from the native grass regions of the Mountain West to the fescue pastures of the Deep South. We’ve dealt with the extreme heat last summer to double digit below zero temperatures this winter, and the cattle continue to flourish. Building a solid base of efficient cows that will adapt to their environment and thrive on grass and forage has been the focus of our program for over 40 years. Cattle that have this adaptability have the added benefit of being able to fit right into other programs as well. If you are a purebred Angus breeder, you’ll love the consistency our genetics exhibit. Breeders from outside breeds trying to make hybrid F-1 calves will appreciate the power and depth our genetics bring. Just take a look at the Simm/Angus and Gelbvieh Balancer hybrids in this sale and you will see how our cattle cross with other breeds. The hybrid vigor they exhibit is impressive. Club calf breeders will appreciate the structural correctness and width of rib our cattle possess. And the grass finishers can put our cattle right into their programs without worrying about them losing weight and falling apart. At Jauer Dependable Genetics, we have stayed the course of producing low input, easy fleshing, high volume, moderate frame cattle that thrive in real world conditions. The scope of our program continues to be the production of efficient, maternal lines of Angus cattle, and we recognize that the mamma cow is the base of any cow/calf operation. If you can start with a female that will calve unassisted, raise a good calf, get fat on grass, and breed back each year; everything else will take care of itself.
If this is the approach you have been searching for, look no further. The cattle in this sale come right from the heart of our herd and there is tremendous depth in the entire offering of spring bred cows, fall bred pairs, bred commercial heifers, and coming two year old bulls. The cows are stout and productive and many are strong candidates for flushing programs. Check out the fancy set of black, red, and baldy commercial bred heifers again this year. The bull offering is among the best we have ever produced. They are the kind that will produce the elite type of females you see in this sale. They are the top 50% of our bull crop and none have been sold from this group prior to the sale. We hope you will come and evaluate the cattle for yourself. If not, please contact us and we will be happy to help you find the animals that fit your needs. Feel free to call us if we can answer any questions about our program.
See you on January 27th.
The Jauer Family
