The Dietz family held their annual bull sale at Stockmen’s West Livestock, Dickinson, ND on a bitter and cold windy Feb. day. The roads were a bit touchy in places, with some freezing rain and blowing snow, but there was a near full house crowd of buyers on hand to give the Dietz’s and excellent sale.
This program is based on a solid cowherd they have been building for nearly 20 years. When they select a herd sire or AI sire, the female side of the pedigree is a top priority. The bulls in the sale were moderate framed, and thick and in excellent condition, not overly pushed at the feed bunk and will work in the country.
This is a no-frills operation. What you see is what you get, and the buyers liked what they saw. Especially the people behind the cattle.
