Outstanding Seedstock Producer of the Year
Yearous Cattle Co, owned and operated by Duane, Sandra and Kent Yearous of Fort Morgan, CO, is the 2018 Outstanding Seedstock Producer of the Year.  The Yearous Cattle Company is a diversified cattle and farming operation with both irrigated farms and ranch grassland. Their cow herd was started as a family venture in 1970 on a strictly commercial basis with ten-head of heifers, and has grown from a totally commercial herd into a 230 head herd of Registered Angus and SimAngus seedstock.  YCC recognizes the value and performance of a disciplined crossbreeding program, which led to the implementation of SimAngus.  They pride themselves as a customer service producer and never forget that their success lies in their customers success and profitability.  They started as a commercial herd and have kept the belief that “The real world” cattle world, is the commercial world, and market their genetic product to mostly commercial and lesser-degree purebred operations.
