Varilek Angus 58th Annual Bull Sale

Dan Piroutek

Mick and Lynn Varilek and their family hosted a big crowd in their beautiful new sale barn for their annual production sale. The Varilek sale is a family affair with Ross and his family involved at home, along with their son, Scott, even though he spends a lot of time on the road. Their headquarters are seven miles south of Geddes, SD and they welcome visitors throughout the year.

This was perhaps the stoutest set of bulls that the Varilek family had produced. The two-year-old Angus bulls were outstanding – being big and stout. The yearling bulls brought some fresh new genetics for their customers.

We see mostly repeat buyers at Varileks, with some of these ranches having a very long history using Varilek Angus genetics. This was a very good sale, but there were still many bulls in almost anybody’s price range, as 57 of the bulls sold for less than $3,000.

Top selling bull of the day was Lot 77, a big strong two-year-old bull, selling for $10,000 to the good herd of Sandage Angus from Gordon, NE. This son of Sitz Upward 307R had EPDs of +2.5 BW, +59 WW, +111 YW, and +26 MM. He had an 86 pound birth weight, weaned at 801 pounds, and posted a yearling weight of 1,257 pounds. He had a REA of 13.5 sq. in. and an IMF ratio of 107.

Chad and Gary Ludeman from Spring View, NE chose Lot 6, a very popular yearling at $6,750. He was also by Sitz Upward and weaned at 866 pounds before growing to a yearling weight of 1,432 pounds. His EPDs were +5.1 BW, +63 WW, +111 YW, and +27 MM. He scanned a rib eye of 15.0 sq. in.

Vermeulen Angus from Letcher, SD chose Lot 3 at $5,500. Also sired by Sitz Upward, he had EPDs of +2.9 BW, +67 WW, +121 YW and +31 MM. Born at 86 pounds he posted a weaning weight of 858 pounds and a yearling weight of 1,498 pounds. He scanned a rib eye area of 14.6 sq. in.
