58 Angus 2-year-old bulls – $4,771
It was another good day in Belle Fourche, South Dakota for the Neiman Cattle Co. Annual Bull Sale. These aged bulls offered came off a program that stresses making money. The longevity of the cowherd they came out of flows through the genetics of the offering. These bulls are developed to last with no fat, no fluff, and just honest bulls, ready to work. And I think they’ll do just that. If you are looking for hardy, efficient, genetics that can survive on some hard grass this is your sale. Here is the cream off the top:
• High seller: Lot 33, NCC Open Range 401, rang the buzzer at $8,500 heading to Gillette, Wyoming, with James Hall. Sired by Sinclair Open Range 2Q23 this bull posted EPDs of BW -1.9, WW 35, YW 60, and Milk 18. He was 76 pounds on March 2, 2014 at birth and 652 pounds on the Adj. WW.
