Slovek Ranch Angus & Angus Plus Genetics Annual Bull Sale

Dan Piroutek

The Slovek Ranch, owned by Bill and Pennie Slovek and their son, Bo, hosted their best crowd ever for their annual production sale held at Philip Livestock. It was a beautiful day, with buyers traveling to the event from a wide area along with several new local customers.

The bulls presented themselves well on sale day, expressing the extra muscle and shape that is bred into these cattle. The Sloveks offered a group of purebred Angus bulls as well as composite Angus hybrids with percentages of Simmental and Gelbvieh blood. Bill has fed out his calf crop for several years, and he realizes the value of carcass premiums as part of the breeding program.

This was a very sound set of bulls, as they were raised in a 40-acre pasture and were certainly not overfed. The bulls were very expressive in their muscle make up.

This was a very strong sale with many repeat buyers competing for the top bulls.

The “Top-selling bull of the day” honor was shared by two bulls. Lot 16, a crowd favorite, was purchased by long-time repeat buyer, Kelly Blair, from Milesville, SD, for $5,250. Sired by Rito 6EM6, he was a homozygous black bull that was 84 percent Angus, 13 percent Simmental, and 3 percent Gelbvieh. Born at 85 lbs., he weaned at 719 lbs., and grew to a yearling weight of 1,357 lbs. He had a ribeye area of 13.7 square inches.

The Foland Ranch, Midland, SD, bought the other top-selling bull, Lot 7, for $5,250. This registered Angus bull, sired by Dunlouise Cortachy Boy D137, was out of ALC Misty Lady 116 R who ratioed 117 on three calves and was a daughter of Rito 1I2. Lot 7 had an 83-lb. birth weight and a weaning weight of 704 lbs.
