Where They Want To Be

DeeDee and Ron Haynes started raising registered Red Angus cattle because their youngest son, Jordan wanted to show Red Angus cattle. They visited the Orys at their Circle 7 Red Angus Ranch in Missouri at the suggestion of a friend to see what the breed was all about. They had raised commercial cattle and at the time registered Beefmaster. “Registered Beefmaster didn’t work out too well with our kids showing so we switched to Red Angus and started showing those. That is how we built this herd,” Ron said. “Whatever breed you have is what you think is the best,” DeeDee said. “We like a color, red. I know most people like the black but, we just like red.” DeeDee believes Red Angus cattle have good dispositions, have a better coat, are more heat tolerant and marble out just as well as Black Angus cattle. “They are just a good breed,” DeeDee said.
