It was an exciting day north of Rapid City at the 2nd Anniversary of the Amdahls’ new ranch head quarters. The Hereford bulls are of course a continuation of the Baker genetic line and haven’t strayed at all. The Angus bulls are coming from some of the top sires in the breed. All the bulls can boast a 3-5 pounds average daily gain on a mere high roughage mixed ration. They were in excellent sale condition and I think it’s a true testament to what the Amdahls are getting done genetically. Here is cream off the top:
Lot 33, Amdahl Block Party 557, topped the sale at $9,000 selling to LCL Ranch of Murdo, South Dakota. Sired by CB Block Party 156 and born March 9, 2015, at 85 pounds. This bull recorded EPDs of BW 2.7, WW 64, YW 108, and Milk 31. He posted 862 pounds on his Adj. 205.
