365 Days • 3 Generations • 2 Families • 1 Sale 2018 Daigger-orr & baldridge-tiedeman female production sale

At the age of 11, John began to work summers for the Musser family west of Tryon, Nebraska where he met his future wife, Patricia. In 1969 they purchased the Avery ranch near Tryon. In 1974, they took over the Musser Ranch, of which they were both well acquainted. The Daiggers were progressive in their management of their herd of Angus-influenced commercial cattle. The jump to registered Angus cattle in the mid-1970s seemed to be a path of natural progression. They have built their herd with grit and passion for the Angus breed. This year their hard work was recognized when they received the 2018 Nebraska Angus producer of the year award.

On Saturday, November 17, 2018 at the Lincoln County Fair grounds, the Daigger-Orr, Baldridge-Tiedeman, and Hadwiger-Woltemath families sold 160 elite females from the heart of their Angus and Red Angus herds. A successful sale takes days of preparation leading up to the big day. These ranches do a superior job by using all 365 days to plan. This hard work and dedication has led them to build top preforming herd genetics that they enjoy sharing with others at their production sale.

"Over the Years we have seen a lot of changes in the cattle business: EPDs, Ultrasound, genomics, and so forth. There is one thing that hasn't changed and that is the ability and necessity to judge and evaluate cattle with the eye"-John Daigger
