It was a spectacular day at Buffalo, Wyoming, for the Powder River Angus Annual Bull Sale. And what a spectacular set of bulls offered by Neal and Amanda Sorenson and Kale and Kim Kretschman. These bulls are born and raised where corn don’t grow but by looking at them you wouldn’t know. There was a very impressive look and style the bulls had that made the bidders hands go up like popcorn in a kettle. The only thing that could have outdone the bulls this year was the hospitality. You won’t buy better bulls from better people. Here is how it all shook out:
