There was a full house on hand for the Paint Rock Angus sale in Buffalo, WY on a very calm and mild early spring day. It was evident that green grass is just around the corner, and bull buyers near and far came to the sale barn to get their hands and eyes on some very uniform, performance, BVD, PAP, carcass and fertility tested bulls that the Mercer family brought over the mountain.

For the first time ever, Martin and Kelli, Tom and Mary Mercer, and Brian and Audrey Pryor decided to hold a spring Red Angus sale in Buffalo, rather than selling those bulls in their annual December sale in Hyattville. Mercer’s Red Angus cattle deserved the chance to stand on their own as they are definite breed leaders in carcass performance and have been awarded many times, in recent years, at the local bull tests for high gaining and high indexing bulls. Not only do these bulls perform well on test, but they perform for the cattlemen as well, which is proven by the 85 percent of repeat buyers of Paint Rock Reds. Additionally, this herd is one of the only sources for PAP tested Red Angus bulls around.

Paint Rock Angus also added 50 black Angus bulls to the March offering. This uniform set of black, calving ease bulls are sired by a strong group of the breed’s most influential sires, as well as proven Paint Rock Angus herd sires. These cattle were developed under tough range conditions, fed high roughage rations and are guaranteed to work for the cowman anywhere.

Paint Rock Angus doesn’t believe in incentives or advertising hypes with either their red or black programs. They simple strive to raise the best possible, highest performing, top notch cattle in the area that have the whole package – structural soundness, fertility, gainability as well as strong maternal traits.

The top selling yearling Red Angus bull was lot 4-MDM Chateau 89-29-8, a February 08 calf sired by MDM Chateau 895 out of MDM Samarinda 16-6, a WFR O’s Cub’s Dream daughter. The MDM Chateau sire group has been leading the pack at Midland Bull Test for three years running. Lot 4’s actual BW was 86 pounds with an adjusted weaning weight of 674. He posted EPDs of -0.0 BW, +35 WW, +58 YW and +20 Milk. Steve Dexter of Princeton, IA purchased two-thirds interest and full possession of this powerful Chateau son for $3,750.
