221 Yearling and Two Year Old Red Angus bulls – $4,768
Gill Red Angus was greeted with a bitter cold day for their annual bull sale, but there was a full house of buyers on hand to sort through and purchase this top-notch set of yearling and two year old Red Angus bulls.

That aspect of customer service really paid off, giving the Gill family an excellent sale.
