Welcome to Kirkes Black Angus Ranch
A family owned and run registered Angus operation in Southeast Oklahoma that is committed to producing the highest quality cattle in the beef industry.
Kirkes Black Angus Ranch (K BAR) is home to K BAR Predestined 167 the #3 marbling EPD female in the Angus Breed with 50 or more progeny scanned by ultrasound. Other breed greats such as GAR 1407 New Design 652 have resided at our ranch. Mark Gardiner considers 652 to be one of the greatest cows to ever leave Gardiner Angus Ranch. GAR T510 Traveler 1522 the dam of 167 and K BAR Dominator 2199 will leave a major impact on the Angus Breed with the elite marbling and calving ease genetics in the powerful phenotype package of her descendants.
As I am putting together the catalog for our 8th Annual production sale Saturday September 28, 2013 It's hard to over look the fact that the cattle markets are growing to the strongest levels ever and the demand for complete performance seedstock such as what K BAR has to offer is at it's strongest level ever, as is evident by the bull averages at GAR in April. Our 8th Annual Production Sale will be our strongest offering to date as I prepare to offer K BAR Prophet 302 reg# 17385665.
302 is destined to be one of the most valuable breeding tools offered in the breed this fall as no other female can match her combination of EPD’s for CED, BW, YW, CW, Marb, RE. We will also offer K BAR Prediction 582 reg# 17511776 that once again is a cornerstone breeding tool as no other female in the breed can match her combination of EPD’s for CED, CEM, YW, CW, Marb, RE. I can’t help but mention the current achievement of GAR Retail Product 846 as she is the dam of the #2 and #3 marbling non-parent females in the breed which will be offered in the sale. 846 didn’t stop there though as the same flush created the current #4 and #7 ranked bulls in the breed for Marbling which will sale in our 8th Annual Production Sale. K BAR Deuces Wild 222 reg# 17374814 Deuces Wild is the lead off bull in this year’s sale and is also breed elite in that no other bull can match his combination of EPD’s for CED YW, CW, Marb, RE.
Deuces Wild gained 6 pounds per day on an 87 day feed test with a maximum feed impute of 17.5 pounds. This is the second year in a row that his powerful dam K BAR Solutions 667 has produced a bull by two different sires that has ratioed 150 for gain. Deuces Wild has already sold over 100 units of semen!
This sale will be one of the top genetic offerings in the country this fall. Please make plans to attend today!
