It was a fine Montana day in Springdale for the Felton Angus Ranch bull sale. This being the 43rd year in the business the Felton Ranch has definitely fined-tuned this program of "working class bulls for the working class rancher." The bulls offered were in their everyday working pants ready to prove their durability in any terrain. It's a true testament to the program when 98 percent of the customers that buy a Felton bull turn into a repeat buyer. The prime rib meal was only a side note compared to the quality of bulls offered and here is how the top end looked:
