Welcome to Buchanan Angus Ranch, we
are 4th generation cattle ranchers and have been in the cattle business for a lifetime, 50+yrs. Our family had a large
herd of commercial cattle,which was sold in the late 90's.
We have been focusing on the "Algoma" Angus
cows, building and improving our herd since 1965. Not being newcomers to the cattle business we
plan on continuing to raise quality Angus cattle that excel in todays market.
This ranch has be using
AI since it was accepted by the Angus Association and Embryo transfer technology since 1987. The cows in the Algoma herd
are the result of years of selective breeding with generations of AI sires in their pedigrees.
Our cows are high volume, big ribbed females in a moderate framed package. Each spring they are turned out to pasture
with young calves and every fall they return with heavy calves, all while they have kept their body condition. This year being
a high feed cost year, that is a very important trait to have in a cow herd. Performance does not start at
the feed bunk, calves should have growth prior to weaning, without creep feed, and continue gaining after weaning,
without breaking the bank.
Buchanan Angus Ranch is not a hobby, it is a livelihood. Angus Cattle are
our only business, so they have to work hard and perform or they do not stay on this ranch, which has been in the
family since 1894.
We have sold donors, show heifers, foundation females and
embryos that have gone on to work for their new owners, carrying on the "Algoma" tradition with traits
that they have become known for.
