21 Angus Ranch Annual Production Sale

Scott Dirk

Bull buyers braved the cold to look over and study the 21 Angus Ranch bull offering.

The Wolf family held their 18th annual “Pride Through Performance” bull sale at the heated sale facility at the ranch southeast of New England, ND on Jan. 29, 2011. Marc and Anne, along with Marc’s parents Archie and Diane, welcomed another full house of buyers for the sale. Even though the weather was cold and there is plenty of snow in this part of the country, the general comments from the crowd was “it’s better than last year.” The 2010 sale happened just days after a record blizzard and several days of power outages in the region.

The “better than last year” comment about the weather can be related to this year’s bull offering. This moderate framed set of performance bulls were very well presented and in excellent condition. Along with performance, there was also a very good selection of top quality calving ease bulls in the offering. They expressed eye appeal, thickness and fleshing ability. This is a program that has stepped up to the plate in offering top-notch genetics to the bull buying public. This was a very steady sale with no extreme high sellers and quality bulls selling in prices to satisfy any operation.

Topping the sale was Lot 2, 21 AR Denali 0053A, a 2/10/10 son of HARB Denali 788 JH. This bull posted EPDs of BW 0.1, WW 59, YW 103 and Milk 31 with a WR of 119. He sold to John Hutchinson, Taylor, ND for $6,000.
