"When I look for a new bull, I want to find a breeder that has the whole package.
Next, I want a program that knows my needs and will be there when I go back next year or longer.
Steve and Will Andras have done this for me and the demand for our calves from Andras bulls is high and tells me we are on the correct path with Andras Stock Farm."

"One of these days I am going to take some pictures of the calves out of our "Andras" cows.
Dad and I are just tickled to death with the outcome of our calf crop.
I would like to thank you all for the oppourtunity to tap into your genetic powerhouse.
Anyone could benefit from your genetic supply of Red Angus cattle.
We are looking forward to doing more business with you in the future.
Thanks a million."

Gary Rhoades of Lebanon, Indiana has purchased several Andras females as well as a couple of bulls.
Starting off selling his home-raised beef to a few workmates, he now has a growing clientell in the Indianapolis area.
"My customers say it's the best beef they've ever tasted.
Each time I take one in for processing, my butcher always says it's the best meat he's cut and uses my beef to display in his meat case.

"We've purchased bulls from Steve and Will to use on Simmental and Hi percentage Simmental cows.
We've been happy crossing them with the Red Angus bulls."

"In 2002, my family and I began a registered Red Angus herd.
After studying several sale catalogs, I decided to attend the first Front Pasture Classic.
I was looking for functional, low-maintenance cows with high fertility, all in one affordable package.
From that sale I purchased three cows and have since purchased more cows and a herd bull.
I have not been disappointed and believe that the Andras herd features Red Angus genetics that would suit any breeder's checklist.
I have enjoyed knowing the Andras family, and their Christian witness makes it an honor to do business with them."

"Buying Red Angus bulls from Andras Stock Farm has really worked well for us.
I've been to their place only once, since then, I've relied on them to pick my bulls and I've been well pleased every time.
We calve around 70 heifers a year and have never pulled a calf.
We typically keep back these heifer calves from our first calf heifers and not have any problems, the RA cross heifers are good quality - it's a good breed.
Red Angus are making us money and saving us labor."

"Buying seedstock requires a lot of homework.
After a year of thorough research we decided to target Andras Stock Farm for our initial donor purchase for several reasons.
One being the established track record of success in the seedstock industry.
Second being the excellent quality of the cattle and attention to all levels of record keeping.
But above all was the level of openness and honesty that I witnessed first hand.
Andras Stock Farm is truly an operation that stands for excellence and customer service."
