This is the only sale report written in which the word 'Gant' is used as a noun and not an adjective. Gant Angus and Polled Herefords hosted their production sale in their new sale facility at the ranch near Geddes, SD. The bulls were in Gant condition, they were big, stout, rugged two-year-old bulls that were ready to go out and get to work. With the Gant program all the bulls are fed a high roughage ration, they're born a little later, and brought along slowly to ensure that highly sought after longevity. The sale was postponed a few days due to weather but no matter what day they chose I'm positive that this loyal customer base would have came. The repeat buyers prove that these bulls are what they say they are…herd improvers. Colonel Chisum Peterson kept them straight all day and reported are the top end:
