Urlacher Angus Annual Bull Sale

Dan Piroutek

Urlacher Angus, owned by Gregg and Mary Urlacher and their family, hosted their biggest crowd ever for their annual production sale. The weather was decent on sale day, but some of the roads were less than perfect for travel. Luck was on their side though, as this area received 10-in. of snow in the days following the sale.

The Urlacher bulls are grown for longevity and not pushed along for extra weight. The repeat customers reported excellent results, and the Urlacher guarantee works well with these good, tough, two-year-old bulls. Their bulls are kept free of charge and fertility tested before delivery in May.

The Urlachers artificially inseminate (AI) many of their cows and heifers to sons of the top proven sires in the Angus breed, yet some of the top bulls in this year’s sale were by their resident herd bulls.

Top selling bull of the day was Lot 4, a big, long son of HARB Pendleton 765JH. He was out of a cow by Mogck Advantage C60. With only a 75-lb. birth weight, this muscular bull posted weaning weight and yearling weight ratios of 106 and 111. He had EPDs of +0.7 BW, +49 WW, +24 MILK and +88 YW. He sold to Deran Lefor, Gladstone, ND, for $5,300.

Repeat buyers, Reuben and Casey Olson, Prairie City, SD, bought two of the top bulls in this year’s sale. The Lot 13 bull sold for $5,000 and was sired by Quaker Hill Objective 3J15. He was out of a daughter of GDAR SVF Traveler 234D, and posted EPDs of +3.0 BW, +54 WW, +22 MILK and +91 YW. The Olsons also bought Lot 17 at $4,750. Here was a son of Opp Dateline 518 with a 75-lb. birth weight. His EPDs were +3.8 BW, +52 WW, +20 MILK and +94 YW.

Chuck Kirstiens from Isabel, SD, bought Lot 21 at $4,750, a bull sired by Opp Dateline 518. He had big numbers with a ratio of 121 at weaning and 112 for yearling weight. He was one of the youngest bulls in the sale, being born in June.
