Feiring Cattle Company is a family operation owned and operated by Donnie and Trisha Feiring, along with their two daughters, Harley and Taylor. Feiring Cattle Company is a program with heritage that stems from a cowherd Donnie’s grandfather, Arnold Feiring, started in 1945. Our herd originates back to 1983 when Donnie purchased his first QAS Traveler 23-4 daughter from his dad, Robert Feiring.
Today, our herd consists of 100 head of registered Angus cows that trace back to Shoshone Viking GD60, QAS Traveler 234, OCC Emblazon 854E and Fahren of Wye UMF 5830. We have worked hard over the past 30 years to improve consistency and predictability in our herd. We feel we have been able to do this through using proven lines of genetics. In 2004, we purchased DDA Ledger 69D from Diamond D Angus at Valier, MT and used him very heavily to build the foundation of our cowherd today.
Our breeding program is geared toward the commercial cattlemen. We do not select for any extremes in performance,
but demand functionality in our cattle. Our cowherd is selected for calm temperaments, fleshing ability,
fertility, structural soundness, quality udders and a proper balance of milk and growth. We do not creep feed, because
we believe these cattle should be able to maintain flesh without extra feed. Our cows run on dry land pasture
and native range in the rolling plains and Badlands along the North Dakota-Montana border.
We market our bulls through a Fall Online Internet Auction every year on the last weekend in November selling 18 month old forage tested bulls and both open and bred females.
