Keith Carmichael and family presented another great set of range ready yearling and two year old Herefords bulls for their 48th Annual Production Sale. The sale was held at the ranch north of Faith, South Dakota.
The sale ring was a fairly large pen in the middle of the barn, which really allowed perspective buyers to see the bulls travel and show their quiet dispositions and soundness. These bulls are not overfed and are in great sale condition. This is a real sound, thick, meaty set of bulls that should really excel in most any breeding pasture, adding pounds to your calf crop and replacement females to your cow herd.
Topping the sale was lot 13, KC Mr Freckles 16059, a Mar. 30, 2016 son of KC Mr Ribstone 10071 that had a 757 pounds weaning wt., epds of BW 2.8 WW 54 YW 84 Milk 23 M&G 50 that sold to Hermann Ranch, Lemmon, South Dakota for $10,000.
Selling at $8,000 was lot 73, KC L1 Domino 15130, an Apr. 2015 son of CL1 Domino 292Z that had a weaning ratio of 111 epds of BW 3.0 WW 49 YW 74 Milk 26 M&G 51. Mike Maher, Isabel, South Dakota was the buyer.
Lot 70, KC L1 Domino 15106, an Apr. 2015 son of B&D Advance 9162 with a 117 weaning ratio, 114 yearling ratio and epds of BW 5.7 WW 61 YW 104 Milk 27 M&G 57 sold to Brockel Ranch, Shadehill, South Dakota for $7500.
4 bulls sold at $7,000 each.
