No, at one time there was an alliance made up of David Waldrip, Randy Roden and The Hallman family. They owned quite a few cattle together. When Waldrip dispersed, Hallman went out also but Randy still maintained a herd of his own. He has had one herd reduction sale since he Kirk and Daniel started together. At least thats the best I remember.Frankie":25hm5zuh said:Hasn't Randy Roden dispersed before?
Avalon":zywo3hdd said:This was rumored back in early January. When I asked Kirk he didnt really want to comment about it. Kind of like it was an emotional thing for him. As many know they relied heavily on carcass genetics to take them to the top. It is my understanding that many of their top cattle came up to be carriers of the AM gene. My belief is that they felt enough is enough. From what I heard Kirk may be moving on to a larger operation after the dispersal. This is a great family that has been inspirational to many in the Angus breed Juniors as well as adults. They have always given, shared and inspired others to accomplish greater things than they thought they could.
Randy may be absent from the national angus scene but the impact of the Roden family will still be visible wherever they are. My assumption is that Randy will still run commercial cattle. May even rebuild a smaller herd in the coming years. But I'd guess nowhere on the scale of what they've been doing.

Very Possible due to Curly calf or trends moving toward easier doing animalsbigbull338":3iaq7vaz said:2 could be a change in the direction they are going.
Maybe for Randy but the boys are only in there 30's and love the Angus business.bigbull338":3iaq7vaz said:3 could be they want to retire.
