Sunny skies and warm December temperatures greeted bidders and buyers from 21 states at the annual Cross Diamond Cattle Company sale on Dec. 14. The Cross Diamond crew and guest consignors provided a stout group of Red Angus age-advantaged coming two-year-old bulls and commercial heifers for their customers. The hospitality was first-rate for the annual event as the holiday spirit and Red Angus optimism ran high.
Many young people were in the crowd, anxiously awaiting the drawing for the first annual Cross Diamond Ag Youth Initiative, where the name of a youth aged five to eighteen years was drawn to win a bred heifer. Justin Miller of Broken Bow, Neb. was the happy recipient of the bred heifer. Fifty-six youngsters entered the drawing, which bodes well for the future of the cattle industry.
