We invite you to tour our website to learn more about Leland Red Angus, as well as the cattle and people behind the brand. Our gate is always open for you to swing by the ranch and see our program firsthand. We believe we are marketing a program and a philosophy as much as our cattle and their genetics.”

Luella & Melvin Leland Carla, Trey, & Todd Leland
The Leland Ranch was originally homesteaded by Melvin’s father, Tony, in 1911 on the edge of the Western North Dakota Badlands and bordering the Montana state line. Today, the ranch remains a family operation with Melvin and Luella Leland, together with son Todd and his family, Carla and Trey, representing over 107 years of continuous family ownership. We host our production sale on the second Friday of March each year. The sale is held here at the ranch, and features 180 bulls and 50-60 yearling heifers. This includes approximately 40 fall born bulls from daughter and son-in-law Tracey and Steve Koester, and their daughters, Kacey and Shaye, of Koester Red Angus. We also offer Bred Females by private treaty every fall. Leland Red Angus manages our registered cowherd of 500 plus mother cows on dryland western range, much like a commercial operation, with the exception being a strictly regulated breeding program. We expect our cows to breed and calve unassisted on semi-arid range and travel across rough terrain on sound feet and legs while weaning a heavy calf in the fall. We do not believe in creep feeding—that’s the cow’s job. Cows winter graze as much as possible on native forage and are only supplemented as weather and conditions require. We utilize the breed’s top genetics, whether from within our own herd or outside sources. We endorse science based technology using AI, DNA, and ultrasound to identify superior genetics. While measured data and EPDs are used, we also select for economic traits beyond the numbers such as disposition, fertility, foot and udder structure, survivability, fleshing ability and type. Due to limited labor resources, and to avoid artificial presentation, our pasture and bull pen become our show ring. At the end of the day, we want our customers to have confidence that Leland Red Angus Genetics are leading them in the most profitable direction.
