It was an extremely windy day in Minnesota at the Caraway Red Angus Ranch for their 4th Annual Bull Sale. But with the passion for the cattle industry that is possessed by the Caraway family I do believe nothing would stop them from offering their seedstock for sale. The genetics provided are a good combination for purebred or commercial guys alike. The bulls are hand fed by Jon, which makes for a well-mannered bull that anyone can handle. The offering represented a good variety of high performance genetics on a fancy phenotype. The heifers were halter-broke and worthy of any show in the country. Reported here is the very top:
CRAR Mr Epic Pursue 18D was sold to Agri Steer Inc. of Elwood, NE for $4,100. This bull is sired by Beckton Epic R397 K and was born 2/18/16 at 86 pounds and posted an ADJ WW of 759 pounds. His EPDs include BW 1.3, WW 73, YW 116, and Milk 18.
