Whitestone Krebs Annual Bull Sale

Ryan Roen

The top selling bull, Lot 10, WK Replay, is a Feb. 2008 calf out of a WK Vegas bull and a grandon of Bon View New Design 1407. He sold for $67,500 with one-half interest and one-half possession to a Russia and Australia partnership.

It was graduation day at the Whitestone Krebs Ranch on March 13th. The graduating class of 2009 had proven themselves to the Krebs’ operation and were ready to make their mark on the cattle industry. Owner Eldon Krebs introduced the annual bull sale with his description of what it takes to be a leader in the Whitestone Krebs bull class and to graduate from their elite program.

The bulls are tested from the time they are born until they are sold. If they don’t meet the requirements of the entire staff, they don’t get to, as Eldon put it, “graduate.” To put this into perspective, only about half of their progeny make it to graduation, or sale, day.

The Whitestone Krebs program requires cattle to be vigorous at birth, to develop out on grass, to have a high weaning weight in the fall, and to continue to grow and perform on a high roughage ration for the final steps towards graduation. With a long history of this kind of performance, their cattle are sought after by seedstock and commercial cattlemen around the world. In fact, this year’s high selling bull was purchased by an Australia and Russia partnership.

The Whitestone Krebs program offers domestic and international buyers a sound group of long-bodied, thick made, easy fleshing, performing kind of cattle that will do well anywhere and are full of that excellent red meat that we all enjoy.

The top selling Angus bull was Lot 10 – WK Replay, a February 2008 calf out of a WK Vegas bull, and grandson of Bon View New Design 1407.

Anvil Angus Stud of Acheron, Victoria, Australia and Angus Genetics of Russia, Kaluga, Russia, purchased one-half interest and one-half possession of this bull for $67,500.

The second highest selling bull was Lot 1 and went to Twin Mills Angus of Ansley, NE for $17,500.
