This is only the second time that the Fortune family has held their annual sale out at their Rafter U Cross Ranch, west of Philip, South Dakota. A large crowd gathered for this early evening sale.

Roger, Cory, and Riley Fortune breed their cattle to a type. These are deep-bodied, big-topped, wide-made cattle. This program works, as some of the best feeder cattle in America are sired by Rafter U Cross bulls. Many longtime repeat buyers made this a very active sale. The finale of the evening was some of the best prime rib on the sale circuit.
