Pine Creek Angus brought an outstanding set of Angus bulls to Faith Livestock in Faith, SD. This ranch, owned by Lyle and Miriam Weiss and their family, have stacked generations of genetics together to build one of the best cow herds in South Dakota. They have used several herd bulls from Sitz Angus, along with some elite Sitz donor cows to make this good herd.

This set of bulls included many calving ease bulls, along with several direct sons of Traveler 8180. They also had several bulls in the sale sired by their resident herd sires: Sitz Valubull 9835 and Pine Creek Image Maker 7131.

Top selling bull of the day was shared by three bulls. The Lot 37 bull was bought by Jesse Brewer from Eagle Butte, SD for $4,000. I felt that this was one of the best Angus bulls that I had seen this spring. He was sired by Sitz Valubull 9835 and out of a daughter of Pine Creek Traveler 1147. With an 86 pound birth weight, he weaned at 708 pounds to ratio 109 and posted a yearling weight of 1,231 pounds. A scrotal of 36.7 cm. and a REA of 15.0 sq. in. completed the package. This bull was long-sided, with enough depth, and he had a big muscular top with a big butt end. His EPDs were +2.0 BW, +57 WW, +103 YW and +28 MILK.

Lot 11 also sold for $4,000 to Jesse Brewer. This son of Mytty in Focus had EPDs of +0.8 BW, +48 WW, +89 YW and +25 MILK. He had an 88 pound birth weight and a weaning weight of 734 pounds to ratio 111. His yearling weight was 1,316 pounds, his scrotal measurement was 41.9 cm. and he had an IMF % of 4.73. His ribeye was 13.1 sq. in.

Repeat buyer Bob Tenold from Reva, SD purchased Lot 16 at $4,000. This was a real long smooth bull with big numbers. Sired by Connealy Onward, he was a calving ease bull with a 78 pound birth weight.
