What a difference a year makes. Last year Carmichael Herefords had to postpone their sale two times before the weather cooperated, this year they were welcomed with a beautiful, sunny day with the temperature pushing mid 40s.

This was the 51st annual bull sale for Carmichael Herefords. The bulls were in everyday working clothes, not overfed and in excellent sale condition. The near standing room only crowd on hand liked what they saw in the bulls and were aggressive in their bidding.
