This sale report could begin like every other report in this paper. It was a nice day. Food was good. Decent sized crowd. So what is it that made Brooks Chalky Butte Angus Ranch set apart from every other Angus bull sale in the country? To answer that I've got one word: consistency. It is consistency in their program that allows customers to trust in these bulls. The true testament to consistency is the by products. Look at all the commercial heifers consigned by their friends and neighbors! These people offered almost 1,000 head of local homegrown heifers that were U-N-I-F-O-R-M. The bulls were no different; they were made to be consistent and long lasting. Here's the cream:
