Robert and Kara Campbell and family along with Robert’s dad Harold held the annual Campbell Red Angus production sale at Mobridge Livestock, Mobridge, South Dakota on Mar. 2, 2015. There was a stiff breeze blowing off the Oahe Dam to keep things cool outside, but the roads were good and travel was not a problem.
This was an outstanding set of bulls and open heifers that the Campbell family brought to town. This operation has not chased the fads of the “bull of the day,” but has stayed true to breeding functional Red Angus cattle that will excel in all aspects of the beef industry. That was evident on sale day with a very consistent, even set of high quality bulls that were very well accepted by the large crowd of buyers on hand for the sale.
