Couldn’t have picked a nicer day in Buffalo, Wyoming for the 8th Annual TJS Red Angus “Red Truck” Sale. The weather was second rate when compared to the impressive set of aged-advantaged bulls offered. These truly were the “cowboy” kind of bulls that had a clean rugged look. Any cowman could have purchased any bull from top to bottom and not gone wrong. The sound feet and good boned cattle were also overshadowed by the Shick’s kindness and hospitality, congrats on a whale of sale and here is how the top end looked:
