Wood Angus customers and friends,
On behalf of the Wood family, it is with great pleasure and enthusiasm that I am writing to update you on Wood Angus news. This fall has been a transitional period at the farm. Many of you know that Jeremy Feller has taken another opportunity, and we wish him the best of luck with his new endeavor. This fall has proven that the greatest product of the Wood Angus program is the next generation, the Wood grandchildren. They stepped up and took charge around the farm this summer and fall, and the N.C. State Fair was proof of their dedication and hard work.
Here a few highlights from this fall:
-Wood Gambino 5100 won GRAND CHAMPION ANGUS BULL AND SUPREME GRAND CHAMPION BULL at the 2016 N.C. State Fair.
-Spring bull weaning weights averaged 779 lbs.
-Spring heifer weaning weights averaged 667 lbs.

Wood Angus is at a turning point in its program, and we are excited to begin a new chapter. With a great deal of thought, discussion, and optimism, we have decided to move our March 4th sale to October 7, 2017. As the new chapter begins we are taking a few extra months to focus on production efficiencies, land management, and most importantly YOU! We want to prioritize our customers, and throughout the coming months, we will be communicating, visiting, and asking you questions in order to make sure that we are producing cattle that are satisfying and surpassing your needs.
Do not fret, we will still have top quality bulls for sale private treaty starting immediately (first come, first served). Included in this letter will be an attachment of the yearling bull information and pricing list. We will also be offering our spring bull calves for sale privately with options to winter and develop them. Feel free to call about this standout set (remember average weaning weights of 779 lbs), and we will post additional information about these bulls on our website (www.woodangus.com) and Facebook (Wood Angus) page.
2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for Wood Angus with new leadership, fresh ideas, and progressive Angus genetics. We will continue to strive to produce quality breeding stock that will exemplify the fundamentals of the cattle industry. Yes, the cattle market has seen better days, but there will continue to be opportunity with leading Angus genetics.
Excited for the future,
