Eggleston’s Charolais, Rafter RS Cattle, Steffensen Charolais, and Wells Charolais consigned to the 7th annual South Dakota Charolais Classic female sale held in Mitchell, SD on Saturday Nov. 15.
Despite several inches of snow, harsh winds and dangerous road conditions, several folks were in attendance for the auciton. This sale has become a popular spot for fellow Charolais breeders to pick up a few bred replacement females or a fancy show heifer.
