Mogck & Sons Angus of Olivet, owned by Charles and LeAndra Mogck and their children, Christy, Chase, and Ty, hosted a big crowd for their annual production sale held at their ranch.

The Mogck family made several changes to their marketing program this year. The first was a brand new sale barn. This beautiful new building is as nice as it gets. The second was the sale date. They moved the sale up into February to make the sale more convenient for their customers. Finally, this was the first year that the bulls were sold by video screen. Although the bulls did not physically enter the sale ring, they were all penned outside, giving bidders plenty of time to look at the bulls before the sale. The catalog gave much information to aid in the final selections.

This was another outstanding set of bulls, and they were readily received by this good crowd. Some of the top bulls caught the eyes of purebred breeders.

Top selling bull of the day was Lot 10, Mogck Bullseye 674, selling for $18,000 to Varilek Angus, Geddes, South Dakota. This son of the $192,000 Mogck Bullseye was out of a daughter of MCC Daybreak, who had ratioed 104 on two calves. His EPDs were CED 7, BW 2.3, WW 72, MILK 29, YW 124, MARB 0.61, RE 1.08, SC 1.39, and $B 118.61. Weaning at 815 pounds, he had a yearling weight of 1,370 pounds.

Lot 7 sold for $15,500 to Mohnen Angus, White Lake, South Dakota. Sired by Mogck Bullseye and out of another daughter of MCC Daybreak and Mogck Jilt 84, he had EPDs of CED 12, BW 0.1, WW 72, MILK 28, YW 124, MARB 0.48, RE 0.77 and $B 103.70. With an 82 pound birth weight, he weaned at 853 pounds and grew to a yearling weight of 1,349 pounds.

Jeff Anderson, Pierce, Neb., became the new owner of Lot 3 when he raised his hand for the final time at $14,500. He was sired by Mogck Bullseye and out of a daughter of Connealy 5050 611B. He hit the ground at 87 pounds, and then he just grew—reaching a weaning weight of 912 pounds and a yearling weight of 1,514 pounds. His 43 cm scrotal measurement was complemented with a 16.9 square inch ribeye and an IMF of 5.11 percent. His $B scored was 123.76.

Louis Genereux, Bartlett, Nebraska, chose Lot 30 at $14,000. Here was a son of Mogck Whispering Wind 48 who was out of a Daybreak daughter. Weaning at 885 pounds, he reached a yearling weight of 1427 pounds.
