It was a long and beautiful drive out to Valier, Mont., for the Diamond D Angus Annual Production Sale. As always the DeBoo family provided a top quality offering of bulls and females. This program is unique in the sense that all the cattle offered are completely forage developed. Hay and water is the only combination needed for weight gain on these rascals. The Diamond D program is doing an excellent job of line breeding and taking advantage of all the high quality traits that show through. The cattle looked good, the food was great, and the people were outstanding. Colonel Roger Jacobs kept the pace fast and furious all day. Here is the cream off the top:
