Spear U Angus 25th Annual Roughage Buster Sale

Dan Piroutek

Shearer Spear U Angus, owned by Greg and Lori Shearer, and their daughter and son-in-law, Carisa and John Diedrichs, hosted a big crowd for their first fall production sale. Spear U has been in business for a long time, but this was a new fall event – presenting this outstanding set of ranch ready, strong, two-year-old bulls.

Greg Shearer has always had the vision of breeding cattle that are suited to thrive on roughage, and he has worked to build a cow herd that can survive all year in South Dakota with hardly any supplemental feed. The cattle are also loaded with carcass genetics, anchored by the Spear U herd bull battery. Included in the offering was a nice set of bred heifers, right off the grass. These were bred by some of the Spear U customers.

Sale day was chilly and windy, but a large aggressive crowd was on hand with mostly repeat buyers, bidding on and buying this good, stout set of two-year-old bulls. The sale was very fast-paced, with every bull finding a new home.

The top selling bull of the day was Lot 1, selling for $6,500 to longtime repeat buyer Don Fish from Buffalo Gap, SD. The bull is SUA Kaboom of 9110 T22, a 3/12/07 ET son of Baldridge Kaboom and out of the donor cow SUA 6I6 Sunset 9110A, a daughter of Rito 6I6 of 4B20 6807.
