77 yearling Red Angus and Gelbvieh/Balancer bulls: $6,315
What an absolute beautiful day in Hyshem, Montana. The “Better Bred Red” barn hosted a large crowd for the Redland Red Angus & Gelbvieh sale March 7, 2015. The bulls offered were the very best out of the herd. I like the Redland operation philosophy – when steer prices are high they sell more of them, making the bull offering the cream of the crop. The Champ and Colonel Kyle Strobe ran a nice brisk sale keeping it lively ringside with a packed house that came to buy bulls. Everybody at the Redland Red Angus outfit is very hospitable and strives to help their customers in anyway. Here is the top end of a very good sale:
Topping the sale was Lot 5, Red Howey 400, at $12,500. This Bieber Makin Hay 9913 son is headed to Wheatland, Wyoming, with K2 Red Angus. Born Jan. 25, 2014, weighing 80 pounds and had a 205 weight of 676 pounds. His EPDs are BW -2.1, WW 57, YW 90, and Milk 26.
