Wagner Charolais is the main enterprise of Wagner Ranch, which is run by Bob and Jan Wagner. The ranch is located in Northern Colorado just a few miles from the Wyoming border (20 miles from Cheyenne).
The Wagner Ranch Bull Sale is held every Spring. Since we calve exclusively in the Fall, from about the middle of August to the first of October, our sale bulls are
17 – 19 months old. Wagner bulls come from a strong base of easy doing cows with a strong emphasis on calving ease, weaning weight and yearling weight. Our bulls are born on pasture, raised on pasture and are sold off pasture. They never see a feedlot. They walk to their food and, as a result, are in good shape, have good feet and legs and can cover cows in the roughest pastures.
We pride ourselves on having docile bulls, which is the result of both selection and management. Working the bulls from the time they are young calves with our dogs really helps make them easy to handle.
Visitors to the ranch are welcome anytime. Come tour the ranch, see our cattle and watch the dogs work.
Wagner Charolais acquired a 25% interest in
CCC WC RESOURCE 417 P at the 2019 National Charolais Sale. Resource is one of the most popular bulls in the Charolais breed, having sired numerous show winners and sale toppers. We will have a few of his sons in our 2020 sale and many more in the years to come.

Wagner Shalako 833 is the source of most of the impressive calving ease found in the Wagner Charolais herd. He has been a breed leader in both claving ease and birthweight EPDs. Shalako is the sire of Four Aces (see above) and has 19 daughters and 34 granddaughters currently in our herd.
