“Our hits and visits went up quite dramatically following your e-blast. Thanks for the help!”
|Kelly Schaff - Schaff Angus Valley
you for all your help with the email broadcasts in advertising
our 105th Angus Production Sale. It is a great way to reach the
masses with timely material. I know that you've worked hard to
generate response to our advertising and reach people beyond our
typical market area. We appreciate your professionalism and quality
work. Thank you for providing this service."
|Darby Line, Triangle J Ranch--Miller, Nebraska
am writing this testimonial just one week ahead
of our 18th
annual bull sale. What a week this has been!! Catalog requests
have been outstanding, largely do to your email broadcasts through
Cattle Mail USA. Your advertising broadcasts are right on target
and are generating a great response again this year. The interest
you are generating is from serious cattlemen.
Dan, I thank you
and your staff for your professionalism and your outstanding service."
Colson - Century Farm Black Angus, LLC
you, Dan Leo and Cattle Mail USA, for putting my
entry into the national spotlight of elite cattle professionals. Your
"old pro" leadership, marketing savvy
of 21st Century tools resulted in the sale of 44 All
Star CF 619 to
44 Farms in Houston, Texas for $33,000. With the
power of the internet, good genetics, and Cattle Mail,
|Lee Leachman, Manager – Leachman
Cattle of Colorado
65% of our catalog inquiries this year came from email broadcasts
through Cattle Mail USA. No other email list or print media
can compare with the response rates that we get from Cattle
Mail. I am convinced that the use of the Internet has turned
the corner from being a novelty approach to being a mainstream
communication tool for marketing cattle. The use of email
broadcasts, online catalogs, and web sites is revolutionizing
how we market cattle. We see Internet marketing as THE most
important and effective promotional tool we have."
Quaker Hill Angus
Mail proved to be worth every dollar spent when it came to
promoting our Mature Cow Dispersal. Without a doubt we received
hundreds of catalog requests as a result of their service and
a high percentage of those contacts turned into sales and new
customers for our operation. We are certain that the direct
exposure we received through Cattle Mail in combination with
Superior Productions helped us not only with our sale but the
big dividends will be forthcoming from the publicity and name
brand awareness it has given Quaker Hill Angus.
Your service is worth every dime and if people don't use it they are leaving
money on the table."
|Glenn Crumpler, Cattle for Christ
“I can't tell you how much we appreciate your donation of advertising and your willingness to help us in our efforts to take the Gospel and love of Christ Jesus to the world. The email is very impressive and I have already rec'd a call from OH from a man who was absolutely thrilled to hear about our ministry and has already offered to help us in many ways. You never know how the Lord will use your talents, your gifts, your sacrifices and your obedience until you test Him in it. He is indeed blessing what you all did for Him as you helped us serve Him by serving others. I look forward to what the Lord will do and how many lives will be changed for all eternity as we all work together through Cattle for Christ and Cattle Mail USA to make Him known. Thanks so much again for your generosity and partnership with us in ministry.”
Heidi Sorensen-Sloth, HRT Productions
“WOW!! I knew that I would reach a whole new group of people by using Cattle Mail but I had no idea just how many! Within the first four hours of sending out the e-mail I had over 20 orders for the Show Day and Show Day Prep Instructional DVDs. The orders kept coming and I figured out that I wasn't prepared for that many orders. What a wonderful problem to have!!!!”
days prior to our recent bull sale I received new ultrasound
data on our yearling bulls. Two bulls in particular were elite
herd sire prospects with incredible numbers and genetics, but
the challenge was to get the word out ... and to get it out
fast. I called Cattle Mail USA to see how quick they could
develop an email broadcast advertisement and get it out to
their large database. Promptly they went to work in and within
a matter of only a few hours they had me a proof and it was
then on the way.
Interest in these feature bulls resulted almost immediately and when the sale
was over the second top selling bull at $11,000 (1/2 interest) sold to Quaker
Hill in Virginia, being a direct credit to your email broadcast. We plan on using
your services again next year as we could not have been more satisfied."
|Doug Hoff, Scotch
were very satisfied with the help and services that we received
from your staff at Cattle Mail USA. You email broadcast for
our recent bull sale was timely and effective, and it generated
107 responses from cattlemen in 28 states. We've never had
such a large response from any of our other advertising. Being
able to get updated ultrasound
& scrotal data to those requesting with your auto-responder
method also worked very well. To me, as an advertiser, the best
thing about your services is timing. For most media I have to
have the information, pictures, ect. weeks or months in advance.
Email broadcasted ads gives me the opportunity to benefit from
the most up to date information and pictures. This is the third
year we have used your services to promote our sales and will
be in contact before our 2006 bull sale. Dan, tell everyone on
your team thanks from Doug and Molly!"
for the great work! I wanted to tell
you how satisfied we are with the response to the recent email broadcast for
the Premium Gold dispersion, it has been tremendous. I have contacted, by reply
email, each of the respondents and most all would not have received this catalog
because they do not receive the Angus Journal. The numerous catalog requests
came from California to Virginia, New Mexico to Canada.
It's truly national in it's scope."
| Alan Sears, Deiter Bros
Mail USA definitely generated more traceable sales leads and catalog requests
than any other advertising method we used this year. I also found it interesting
that your e-mail broadcast spurred several people already on our list to take
action and request further information on the bull offering. With nearly all
of our customers now on the Internet I firmly believe using the technology via
e-mail to identified demographic groups will become a growing part of our marketing/communication
efforts to both current and potential customers. We’ll plan on using Cattle
Mail USA again for our fall ‘Cream of the Crop’ Female Sale, scheduled
for December 6-7, 2004"
Cattle Baron Bulls & Hairpin Cavvy
am very happy and impressed with your broadcast for our Hairpin
Cavvy sale. I especially appreciate your professionalism...the
timeliness and effectiveness of making our extensive four
color material 'user friendly. It's got to be the most efficient
way to reach and communicate with customers. I'll be back."
Thanks, Jim Leachman
|Jeff Windett, Circle
a note to let you know how important Cattle Mail USA was to the
success of our recent Circle A Ranch Spring Bull Sale. The large
amount of inquiry resulting from your email broadcast definitely
impacted the sale day results. There is no question that the
increased buyer interest and record crowd attendance were direct
credit to your service. Thank you for help and expertise!"
Windmill Angus Ranch
using your email broadcast services the last two years for
our annual sales I wanted to let you know how well it has worked.
Just a couple highlights include one new buyer from our 2003
sale who bought ten bulls at a $2800 average and has bought
bulls again this year. In this year’s 2004 sale another
new customer bid over $62,000 on bulls (And never got one in
the sale so I sold him one privately!) and also purchased $50,000
in heifers. There are other buyers who have also come from
your email broadcasts but I wanted to tell you about these.
Thanks again for your help reaching new customers."
|Lewis Hagen, Sinclair
Cattle Company, Inc
organization has received an incredible number of sale book
requests through the use of Cattle Mail USA as part of our
communications mix. You may be assured that we will continue
to do business with you in the future. Thank you for a job
- Eden Run Farms
for helping make our last sale the most successful. Your email
broadcast services paid for itself before this sale ever started
as we received a large volume of catalog requests that came
from all over the country. Some of these attended the sale
and bought several lots. We will contact you for our 12th Annual
Back to Basic sale on April 2,2005."
|Suzie Cox, Tim Cox Fine Art - Eagle Creek Enterprises
have been advertising Tim Cox art and Eagle Creek Enterprises
with the major magazines for the last 20 years or so and we
have never had the kind of response that we did with Cattle
Mail & Horse Mail USA. For about the same amount of money
that a 1/2 page color advertisement in Western Horseman would
cost, we were able to reach over 80,000 potential customers
and we received 500 information requests or orders. Nothing
else comes close!"
|Dr Dave Duello
- Ray Farms
very much appreciate you and your staff's help in advertising
our Source of Champions Major Cow Reduction and Heifer Calf
Sale this Fall. We received a tremendous response from the
ads as catalog requests. We were especially pleased with your
online catalog in particular the ease and speed in viewing
and down loading the catalog - which was now small task considering
we cataloged over 1200 lots and displayed over 140 photos.
Having to reschedule the sale due to Mark's accident was a very difficult last
minute decision to make and your organizations assistance in getting the word
out fast was incredible. Within hours of our phone conversation you had the word
out to the masses. Finally, you and your crew are to be commended for the quality
of work and the turn around time it took to post the ads and get the catalog
Again, we appreciate your assistance and look forward to working with you again
in the future."

Mail USA did a superb job for us on short notice. They are
real professionals, and their graphic design work is first
rate. Given the depth of their mailing lists, the potential
for reaching new customers is outstanding."
|Ryan Schurr, Schurrtop
Angus & Charolais
to Cattle Mail USA for helping us make our last sale the most
successful ever. This was our first experience with your email
broadcast services and the results were excellent. We had a
great response for catalog requests and had the most visits
to our website online catalog ever. You are helping us take
our program to another level and we look forward to doing business
with you in the future."
|Richard Alan Arnold,
Willow Oak Cattle Ranch, Inc
the past 22 years, we have developed, at great expense and
effort, a cattlemen's mailing list of over 16,000 potential
customers. That list has been the heart of our promotional
efforts. This year, Cattle Mail USA made that list obsolete
with your ability to communicate quickly and directly to a
targeted audience. We had great results and look forward to
utilizing your service for our 12th Annual Best Black Bulls
in America Sale."
| Louisa and Eldon
"We have never reached so many new potential customers
with any other form of advertising. As a definite result of utilizing
your direct postal mail and email broadcast services, the Sale catalog
inquiries were far beyond our expectations. The sale was great
with a very large crowd in attendance."
|Jerry Adamson, Rocking J Ranch
must say that I was truly amazed at the response your Cattle Mail
USA generated for our recent bull sale. Frankly I was somewhat
hesitant not having an understanding of the Internet and computers,
but my family (Who do) encouraged me to use your email broadcast
advertising services. I must say, it was unbelievable to see the
volume of catalog requests come from all over the country. Tanya
or Todd will be contacting you to do broadcasts for our club calf
sale in October."
|Janice Nikkel, Mill Brae Ranch
thought I'd let you know that our top selling bull in the sale
went to Jed Stevenson, R&S Angus and Stevenson's Diamond Dot
Angus; Hobson, MT. This is the first time they've ever purchased
a bull sight unseen and their inquiry came from the use of Cattle
Mail USA's e-mail contact. We'll sure be interested in utilizing
this form of marketing again next year. Thanks for all your assistance.”
|Dawn McClanahan, Derry Cattle Company
"Just wanted to thank you for all the assistance with our recent
bull sale promotion as it proved to be rewarding. Combining the
email broadcasts with the sale flyer mailings to the targeted market
areas that you suggested proved to be very effective. I also want
to let you know that we received many positive comments from those
who accessed the online sale catalog your staff developed. With
a growing number of cattlemen on the Internet today, email broadcasts
and online catalogs will be included in every future sale promotion
for certain. We really appreciate your Cattle Mail USA services
to make our marketing more effective and complete. I will be getting
information to you soon to develop our new website. Thanks again."
|Roger Hunker, BreedersWorldOnlineSales.com
”Cattle Mail has been an important part of our growing Online Auction Service. In just the 1st quarter of focus on the cattle side of our business we have sold nearly $1,000,000 in online auctions. Cattle Mail has definitely impacted this growth with their large database and e-mail marketing. Together we have proven internet marketing is the fastest growing marketing tool in the cattle business."
|Steven Redd, Redd Ranches
"Thank you for the service you provided with your email design
and broadcast. It really woke me up to the potential of email broadcasts.
I received a quicker response from interested buyers than I have
ever experienced before. I will definitely be calling upon your
services in the future."
|Chuck and Linda Pohlman, Pohlman Angus
"Just wanted to let you know how our recent female sale went. The response
was good as we received about 40 requests for catalogs and no doubt had a very
large volume of viewers of the online catalog. We will add the names to
our mailing list. Your suggestion of getting our website updated and adding
the online catalog to it was a real plus. Also your tip to do a conference
call really worked out great. We had several people on the phone and sold
5 of the 24 over the phone. All the phone bidders were quite satisfied
with how it worked. Having access to the online catalog that you developed
proved to be very important.
The sale was very successful. The heifers averaged $4681
with the top Lot 1 bringing $16, 250 selling to a Missouri buyer. We
sold to IL, MN, IA, MO, KS and NE. We were quite pleased
as the average was about $2000 above our past year's sales. Thanks
for your help."
|Walter Shealy, Black Grove
"Just a short
note to say thank you for your assistance in marketing our
Black Grove Mature Cow Dispersal Sale. The e-mail broadcast
helped reach many cattlemen who were not on any other
list. It also reinforced our marketing message to those
The proof is in the results, which included many e-mail
requests for catalogs from your broadcast. The sale was
the all-time record-breaking cattle sale for the Carolinas. We
had a tremendous standing-room-only crowd of over 400 people
attend the sale on a beautiful fall afternoon. The sale
averaged $5,052 per lot with cattle going to buyers in 13 states. In
addition our Bandolier heifers averaged $6,450 each. It
turned out to be quite an event in the Grove.
As you know this is the second year we have used your services. We
are delighted with the leads it produced and are pleased to
recommend you and your Cattle Mail USA services to other cattle

"In spite of the continuing drought in our trade are
we have just had one of our most successful bull sales
ever. We sold all 189 bulls that were offered to an expanded
market area that included 11 states. Inquiries prior
to the sale were much higher than we normally experience.
A large part of the increased traffic is credited to the
email broadcast page that Cattle Mail USA distributed
|Larry Lipson Paws Up Angus Ranch
"Cattle Mail USA did
an outstanding job promoting our dispersal sale over the web.
They were extremely helpful in determining our markets and they
could not have been more efficient during the process of producing
and mailing our mass email. The catalog requests that followed
the mailing were very impressive. Also, their response time was
incredible. In the middle of the sale, we decided to send out
second mailing informing cattlemen that the sale was going extremely
well and that the cattle were in excellent condition. We went
on to remind folks that there was still an opportunity to pick
up some of the superior seedstock from Paws Up during the next
two days of the sale. The staff at Cattle Mail USA responded
immediately and had a mass emailing out within the hour. You
can’t ask for much better service than that."
|Tom Risinger, Risinger Ranches
"We used the Cattle Mail USA Email Broadcast
services twice to promote our herd dispersion, bull and equipment
sales. Each sale was very successful with very large crowds in
attendance. Linking the online sale catalog was a definite added
benefit allowing cattlemen to see the offering listing immediately.
Our response was excellent and I would recommend this promotion
service to other breeders."
|Steve Patton, LaGrand Angus and Hereford Ranch
"We appreciate your commitment to Internet promotion technology
and the professionalism of your Cattle Mail USA staff.
Your email broadcast services utilized for our most recent three
sales generated excellent response. Many catalog inquiries were
received and numerous viewers reported an appreciation for our
online catalog accessibility, both of which resulted in added interest
and sales. Other advantages of the email broadcast promotion we
value are being able to timely inform or remind the prospective
customer of an upcoming sale, and to provide updated pictures/information
that were possibly not available by printing deadlines with a goal
and to reach more customers. Your Cattle Mail USA services
are an asset to our marketing program enabling the growth of our

Moore, Pied Piper Farms/Mark Donald Alliance
"We want to thank you for your excellent service promoting
our recent sales. The direct postcard mailing to area cow calf
producers combined with your email broadcast for our November bull
and female sale was very successful as one of our largest sized
crowds ever resulted. The email broadcast page developed for our
Internet sale this past April was very professionally designed
and reached the targeted, growing online audience very effectively.
Thanks to everyone at Cattle Mail USA for assisting
us our sale promotion. We plan to use your services for our upcoming
annual fall sale."
|Kristy and TJ Martin, Martin Ranch
were very pleased with the result's from Cattle Mail USA. We
had great response for catalog request's which therefore lead to
many visit's on our website and online catalog. From your
broadcast we targeted new interest and new buyer's in our 2005
feel we were able to use technology to it's fullest potential allowing
us to reach new bull buyer's. Thanks for everything!"
