Certainly, if you get a chance, stop at Vogel's in Hartley, Iowa. In north central Iowa, I'd also recommend Cyclone Trace Shorthorns in Clarion, IA, and the Berg Family in Osage, IA. All these breeders are friends of ours and are very reputable people with high quality cattle.
If you're coming down Interstate 35 from the north you could stop and see us at Oakbar Ranch. We don't have many(we're new to the business) but we have some pretty excellent quality this year with top blood lines and we're only 3 miles off I35 at the Iowa/MN border. We should have our website up and running in another week so you can check out our offering.
If you could give some specifics on your travel route, I'd be happy to recommend some stops for you that would not take you too far out of the way!!
