Lewis Brothers Annual Bull Sale

Carissa Lee

A packed house turned out for the Lewis Brothers annual sale at St. Onge Livestock.

Lewis Brothers, the combined efforts of Grandview Angus, Dan and Amy Lewis and family, and Lewis Angus Ranch, Jesse and Kathy Lewis and family, held their 31st annual bull sale at St. Onge Livestock. The weather on sale day was quite pleasant for early March as the sale barn was packed with both repeat and new buyers.

The Lewis families offered a real nice set of deep-sided, easy-fleshing bulls with more than 40 being suitable for heifers. They chose sires that would ultimately increase weigh, milking ability, efficiency, uniformity, stoutness and a strong calf crop. The bulls had a complete set of EPDs as well as ultrasound data for customers to analyze on sale day.

The top-selling bull was Lot 10, DL Final Answer 80, that sold for $8,000 to Weller Ranch from Kadoka, SD. This low birth weight son of SAV Final Answer had a nice set of EPDs: BW -1.8, WW +62, YW +102, M +25 and scrotal measurement of 38 cm.

Mangen Angus Ranch from Broadus, MT, purchased Lot 12, DL Final Answer 160, for $7,500. He was another low birth, high performance son of SAV Final Answer with EPDs of BW +0.4, WW +65, YW +112 and Milk +27.

Lot 73, DL Incentive 320, a DL Incentive 228 son, sold to Jerry Hemmerquist from Caputa, SD, for $7,000. Lot 73 was the heaviest bull of the sale and had the second best gain in the feedlot with EPDs of BW +2.8, WW +65, YW +114 and Milk +25.

Tyler Aman, Wilmot, SD, took home Lot 1, DL Upscale 260, a Sitz Upscale 671T son, for $6,500. He had a 70-lb. birth weight with EPDs of BW +0.5, WW +60, YW +108 and Milk +28.
