Beastrom Gelbvieh 30th Annual Bull Sale

Dan Piroutek

A friendly crowd gathered in Ft. Pierre, SD to evaluate and bid on this good set of Gelbvieh and Balancer bulls. Jim Beastrom is one of the really nice guys in the seedstock business. We see many of the same faces every year buying these bulls, and this was the 30th bull sale for the Beastroms.

The Beastrom family also includes daughter, Brandy, and her husband, Shad Ludemann. This year the family welcomed Brittney’s husband, Wes Spencer.

This set of bulls was one of the most uniform groups I’ve seen. They had even more volume, muscle and shape.

Docility is still one of the Beastrom’s strongest priorities to go along with great females that have topped most of the national shows. The ranch utilizes the best Gelbvieh, Red Angus and black Angus genetics to produce seedstock that will generate profit for their commercial customers. The bulls were also Igenity tested for multiple traits, including tenderness and feed efficiency.

Top selling bull of the day was Lot 2. This bull drew a lot of pre-sale interest and really looked the part of a herd bull on sale day. The bull was thought to be the thickest butted bull that the Beastroms have ever raised. He was a son of BEA Silverado and out of the cow, BABR Hott Toddy, who has already produced several herd bulls. His EPDs were +2.5 BW, +43 WW, +79 YW, +21 MILK, +43 TM, -1.1 GL, and +104 CED. This good purebred black polled bull with an 809 pound weaning weight sold to the good herd of Roger and Norma Overmiller from Smith Center, KS.

Lot 55 sold to Arnie Mehrer from Harrold, SD for $4,600. This good red polled Balancer bull had a tremendous amount of eye appeal and style. This was a half blood bull being sired by the Red Angus bull, PIE PIE Deweze 6292. He had an 83 pound birth weight and weaned at 745 pounds.
