Southern, AZ - This November, Dean Fish from Anchor F Cattle Co. is putting on two club calf events. First, is the free Anchor F Steer Selection Clinic and Preview Saturday November 19, 2016 from 1pm - 3pm. Located at the Santa Fe Ranch headquarters, (169 North River Road in Nogales, AZ) this short and informative clinic has been designed to help 4-H and FFA members of all ages in their beef project. Attendees will learn how to evaluate prospect market steers, and other critical things needed to select their next beef project!

The second event of the weekend is a live auction! The public auction will be held at the Sonoita Fairgrounds on Sunday November 20, 2016 at 1:00pm under the Bob & Mary Bowman Pavilion. Can't make it to the event? Online absentee bidding starts at 8:00am Thursday November 17th and closes at 8:00pm Saturday November 19th. Click here to place your bids. The eleven spring-born calves offered will work for all of the late summer and fall fairs, including the Arizona State Fair.

A UofA alumnae and long-time leader/supporter of youth 4-H and FFA clubs, Dean began his club calf herd in the spring of 2004 with 15 commercial Angus based heifers. Using these heifers, he artificially inseminated to Maine Anjou bulls to produce club calf mommas. The philosophy has always been to start with a sound functional cow. Good feeding cattle because of their maternal base, Deans’ steers have been Champion Carcass for the last four years at Santa Cruz Co. Fair, in addition to having champions and reserves at Santa Cruz and Graham counties.

Cows are culled on disposition and he 100% guarantees every calf sold. All calves are vaccinated and processed to BQA guidelines. His son Garrett is no longer be showing, so his entire calf crop will be on the auction block this fall.

Anchor F Cattle Company is dedicated to raising quality calves at a reasonable price. Dean says, “There is nothing else you can give a kid to learn more responsibility and instill a good work ethic, like a club calf.”

Comments From Our Clients

  • Paul Ramirez was our auctioneer for the Tucson Wildlife Center "Rejoice Dinner" fund raiser in Jan 2012. We were very fortunate to have Paul as he significantly increased our auction proceeds far above expectations. He is a very creative auctioneer and suggested several unique ways to present our candidate offerings. Paul is engaging and knows how to motivate potential bidders. His enthusiasm and humor energizes the audience. Because of Paul's excellent presentation of our auction items we believe we achieved about three times the revenue that we had anticipated. All of the attendees enjoyed the auction as the highlight of the evening. We were so pleased that we have scheduled Paul again for our 2013 event.
    M. Lisa Bates, MS, Executive Director, Tucson Wildlife Center, Inc.

  • Paul Ramirez and the Charity Auction Team are TROT's "secret weapon" when it comes to our event fundraising efforts! Paul's professional expertise, his auction style, and his rapport with the crowd are a perfect fit for our organization - his auctions are fun and produce fabulous results for our charity. Paul knows his business and willingly shares ideas to help us maximize the proceeds from our events. Many children with special needs from the Tucson community have directly benefited from the funds raised by Ramirez Auction Services and we are grateful for their supportive, professional assistance. I highly recommend the Ramirez Auction Services to any nonprofit organization that wants a good outcome at their events!
    Leslie Esselburn, Executive Director Therapeutic Riding of Tucson (TROT)

  • Paul has been auctioneer several times when I have donated a large original painting to a charity event. No one does a better job auctioning my work then he does. Paul does his homework, knows his audience, has good knowledge of the items he's auctioning, and says just the right thing to elicit the highest bid. I am always thrilled when I see he is the auctioneer.
    Diana Madaras, Madaras Gallery
