Lensegrav Ranch Hybrid Vigor Bull Sale

TSLN Reps: Dan Piroutek & Scott Dirk

Date: Mar. 16, 2019

Location: Faith Livestock Auction

Auctioneer: Lynn Weishaar

Averages: 101 yrlg Black Hybrid Bulls avg. $4,683

Dave and Rhonda Lensegrav raise these bulls on their ranch, north of Faith, in the Meadow area. Dave Lensegrav had to postpone his sale for one week, and fortunately, was able to hold it just one week later. These bulls are stout made, with depth of body, plus mass and thickness throughout. The uniformity and quality stayed until the very end of the sale. I thought this was, perhaps, the strongest set of bulls Dave had ever produced. Loyal repeat buyers competed with each other, the telephone, and the internet to make this a very strong sale.

Comments

The weather finally cooperated for Carmichael Herefords to hold their 50th Annual Bull Sale. After having to postpone twice because of weather, the third try finally worked, giving the Carmichaels a great beautiful sunny day for the sale. With a lot of road conditions still compromised, the crowd was maybe lighter than past years, but the bulls were in great sale shape and sold quite well.

Flat Water Gang Red Angus Bull Sale

TSLN Rep: Scott Dirk

Date of Sale: March 18, 2019

Location: Sale held at One Box Convention Center, Broken Bow, NE

Auctioneer: Scott Weishaar

Averages:

95 Yearling Red Angus bulls – $3,343

This was by far the best set of Red Angus bull offered by Sandbur Ridge Red Angus, Cooksley Red Angus and Birnie Red Angus, the breeders that make up the Flat Water Gang. These 3 breeders all have slightly different breeding programs, but the bulls in this sale were very consistent and uniform from top to bottom.

Top Selling bulls:

Lot 50, Ridge Right Kind 8146, a 2/18 son of 5L Right Kind 1942-62B, with epds of CED 12 BW 0 WW 67 YW 104 Milk 25 sold to Craig Seier, Petersburg, NE for $8,000.

Lot 35, Ridge Provision 8074, a 2/18 son of Ridge Provision 6013 with epds of CED 9 BW 0.8 WW 73 YW 16 Milk 28 sold to Rich Red Angus, Vinton, IA for $7,000.

Lot 62, Cooksley Gladiator 8217, a 3/18 son of Bieber Gladiator C386 with epds of CED 17 BW -3.8 WW 66 YW 102 Milk 23 went to Daigger/Orr Angus, North Platte, NE for $6,750.

Lot 86, Ridge Crisscurrent 8124, a 2/18 son of KDS CrossCurrent 423 with epds of CED 9 BW 1.3 WW 67 YW 104 Milk 25 went to Rich Red Angus, Vinton, IA for $6,000.

The sale fell on the heels of the major winter storm that dropped several inches of rain and in some cases up to a foot or more of snow. Many roads in their customers areas were flooded out or blocked so the crowd was smaller than past years and not as eager to bid. The sale average reflects that, however the sale average does not reflect on the quality of the bulls offered.

S & V Livestock’s “Ranchers Choice” Bull Sale

TSLN Rep: Scott Dirk

Date of Sale: March 19, 2019

Location: Gordon Livestock Market, Gordon, NE

Auctioneer: Doug Dietterle

Averages:

Yearling bulls – $3,045

Two Year old bulls – $3,250

This was the most consistent set of Angus bulls offered by Don and Mary Vannatta. The bulls looked fancy for their 18th Annual "Ranchers Choice" Bull Sale. The bulls were in great sale condition, carrying just enough flesh to look good, but not too much to fall apart in the breeding pasture.

Sale highlights:

Lot 1, SV Connealy Earnan 8053, a 2/18 son of Connealy Earnan 076E with 205 day wt. of 751 lb., weaning ratio of 109 and yearling ratio of 114 sold to Brad Heiting, Hay Springs, NE for $4,750.

Lot 26, SV Sirloin 8120, a 3/18 son of HA Sirloin 5427 with a CED of 11, weaning wt. of 741 lb, WR 108, yearling ration 105 sold to Strasburger Land & Cattle, Lakeside, NE for $4,750.

Lot 9, SV Cowboy Up 8034, a 2/18 son of HA Cowboy Up 540S that has weaning wt. of 778 lb., weaning ration of 113, yearling ratio of 108 sold to Brad Heiting, Hay Springs, NE for $4,500.

Lot 21, SV Breakthrough 8006, a 2/18 calving ease son of AAR Breakthrough 6045 with epds of CED 15 BW -3.2 WW 50 YW 100 Milk 31 sold to Spitoon Ranch, Rushville, NE for $4,000.

This was another sale that followed the winter weather of last week. Many secondary roads in rural ranching country are nearly impassible with mud and snow so the crowd was light, reflecting the average of the sale, but not necessarily the quality of the bulls. With the lighter crowd, there are some bulls left over. If you are needing bulls come turnout time or before, contact Don.
