Since this was the first time that I’d been to this sale, I’d have to say that I was very impressed with the overall quality of the cattle. I thought the Lot 1 bull was one of the especially good Angus bulls that I’ve seen this spring. Mark Baxter’s herd is backed by strong genetics, and the ranchers bid aggressively during this fast-moving auction.
