Combined Advantage – Angus & SimAngus Bull Sale

Buffalo, SD

Spruce Hill Ranch and Wicks Cattle Co. again presented their Combined Advantage and SimAngus production sale to a big crowd of ranchers from mostly North and South Dakota. They offer a big, stout set of spring two-year-old bulls, along with a fancy set of yearling bulls that are SimAngus.

The Spruce Hill Ranch is truly in the heart of some of the best ranch country in America. This is an area where cattle have to prove themselves as the winters are not for the weak-hearted… and some summers can turn off rather dry. These cattle are bred for this environment with females that will flesh up and breed back, along with bulls that are full of muscle and still extra sound on their feet and legs.

Although the weather was cool on sale day, a big crowd of neighbors and customers turned out to present the Rotenbergers and Wicks families with a very good sale.

Top selling bull of the day was Lot 65, a 3/18/09 half Simmental, half Angus bull with a tremendous amount of eye appeal. Sired by JF Net Merit, and out of an Angus cow, he had an 87 pound birth weight and weaned at 671 pounds. His average daily gain of 4.29 pounds a day was evident in his yearling weight of 1,362 pounds. His adjusted REA was 14.4 sq. in. and he sold to Doctor Land and Cattle of Denhoff, ND for $4,600.

Lot 63 sold for $4,500 to Beaver Creek Ranch of Richardton, ND. This half Simmental, half Angus bull was sired by JF Net Merit. He was minus on his birth weight EPD, and had a yearling weight of 1,274 pounds. He also scanned a REA of 14.5 sq. in.

Wayne Nelson from Buffalo, SD topped his purchases with a yearling SimAngus bull, Lot 67, at $4,400. He was a son of JF Net Merit. He had an 89 pound birth weight, a weaning weight of 676 pounds, and a yearling weight of 1,239 pounds.
