2020 Sale Plan:
Fri. Feb. 14, 2020
Visiting with us in person or on the phone remains the best way to understand our philosophy, but we're also happy to put it in writing for easy understanding and reference!
First, we know most of our customers--all of whom we consider friends and neighbors--don't raise cattle for show. Many of you won't even look at bulls that have seen a showring. That's ok; we get it. But, we do have reasons for our madness.
We're proud to raise practical, good-looking cattle that not only represent us well in the showring but also perform in your real world situations.
Our cattle are our only business. They have to perform every year in any market because there are no other enterprises to carry their weight. We view our cattle as an extension of us as people--straightforward, honest, and willing to work for our place at the table.
Second, we are retaining the right to 1/3 semen interest in our first three lots because we believe in their versatile, usable quality. There seems to be a belief that only big name, high priced bulls are worth the effort. We believe that's a myth.
Here at Jackpot, good cattle are good cattle no matter the price tag. We don't need inflated, hyped up prices to raise or promote good, high quality cattle, and we don't think you need that either. We aren't here to blow smoke.
Don't be scared by the words "retaining interest". We aren't looking to add more work to your plate, and we don't want to steal your thunder.
But, we would like to keep outstanding quality in our own herd, and if you're ready to market a bull beyond that, we're ready to help you all the way!
With more than 40 years in the Simmental business and a lifetime in the cattle industry, you can count on Duxbury's Jackpot Cattle Company for time-tested, proven genetics carefully selected for performance, longevity, and profit potential.
Our 2020 Bull & Heifer Sale is Friday, February 14. We invite you to join us for lunch beginning at 11:30. The cattle will be available for viewing at the ranch south of Wessington.

Final sales will continue to be conducted via phone after initial bidding closes at 3 pm. Remember, no animals are considered sold until all animals are called sold.
We'll also be offering a new, comprehensive livestock insurance partner through Heartland Financial Services. More information is available in the catalog!
